1,900 acre Cumbrian estate on the open market for the first time since 1761

 

In contrast to the roofless, repossessed Cumbrian house in 1,500 acres featured yesterday, another estate for sale nearby is an entirely different kettle of fish. On the market after being owned by the Fothergill family since 1761, £3.25 million Lowbridge House is a “cottage ornéé” style residence that comes with 1,927 acres of land.

Comprising of a 17,750 square foot, 7-bedroomed main house that was built between 1833 and 1837 for Richard Fothergill, the selling agents Strutt & Parker remark “the that accommodation currently provides for very comfortable family living with a distinctive blend of rooms providing for modern living, together with impressive more formal rooms commensurate with a house of this size and character”. The northern wing of the building, previously used for guest accommodation for shooting parties, is described as “uninhabited” and now offers the potential “to be brought back into use”.

 

Lowbridge House is situated within the Lake District National Park to the north of Whinfell and comes with 39 acres of land connected to the main property. The remaining 1,888 acres are let on a first succession Agricultural Holdings Act 1986 tenancy for just £12,500 per year including a farmstead named Dry Howe Farm that includes a farmhouse and various agricultural buildings.

The gate lodge to the estate is also let but on an assured shorthold tenancy

 

Additional accommodation is provided by way of a 2-bedroomed gate lodge that is currently let for £5,700 per year and the estate’s currently under-exploited moorland could be rejuvenated for grouse shooting if heather regeneration occurred. Six hinds and four stags have been shot in 2015 on the property as part of the North Lakes Red Deer Group management plan.

    1. What pathetic rents the tenants pay!!!! I’d like an 1800 acre farm with a house and buildings for a £1,000 a month!!! You couldn’t get a cupboard for that in K&C!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    2. Mmm…that’s more like it! Wonderfully traditional house that fits in well with the landscape and like it belongs there.

    3. Instead of writing about pretentious wealth, why doesn’t The Steeple Times try and do something good and support dear Gerry and Kate McCann in their efforts to find their beloved daughter. Find Madeleine, find her now. Shame on The Steeple Times, shame on the lot of you in fact.

    4. A stunner. HS2 will make it a lot more accessible to London and the price will rise. Definitely worth the money asked for it.

    5. Two rather interesting Fothergills;; both named John

      John Fothergill of Boulton and Fothergill – Birmingham – about the only provincial silversmiths who made important silver the equal of any of London’s finest contemporary masters like Storr or Bridge

      Mathew Boulton was a genius and versatile in industry; a backer of new inventions

      The other John ran the Spread Eagle at Thame…….he wrote ‘ An innkeepers Tale ‘ a most difficult man and the model foe the innkeeper in Brideshead Revisited …….he would turn away well to do patrons with Bentleys who would easily pay, in preference to young aristos who would always bounce a cheque

      There is no doubt a connection
