Applethwaite Hall is a stunning country house from the height of the Arts and Crafts movement converted in to 12 luxury apartments.
Completed in in 1901 Applethwaite Hall is one of the Lake Districts hidden gems. Formally known as The Common, it was designed by architect Thomas Muirhead famous for his work designing the cricket pavilions at Old Trafford and the Kennington Oval; as well as the Public Offices at Lytham.
Built as a private family residence for the Roberts family, the Hall remained in the family until the early 1960s when it was sold and converted into flats. Now Applethwaite Homes has breathed new life into this historic building, transforming the interior into twelve luxury apartments.
The properties will be completed to exacting standards and range in size from one bedroom to three bedrooms and several will have either private garden areas or access onto the balcony offering superb vistas across the communal gardens, adjoining National Trust farmland and to the Lakeland Fells beyond.
Unusually in the National Park Applethwaite Hall has no occupancy restrictions so this probably represents the last opportunity to purchase a property in the National Park in such a stunning building which can be used for permanent living or as a second home.
Applethwaite Hall is ideally placed as a base from where to experience all that the area has to offer. The winding country lanes and paths of the Lake District offer endless opportunities for walking whether a gentle stroll along a valley bottom or a more energetic climb to the top of a fell and The Lake District is renowned for its excellent mountain biking trails.

The lakeside village of Bowness only 2.5 miles away offers the opportunity to pursue a range water sports including, sailing, canoeing or windsurfing or perhaps take a cruise on the Lake.
