Holme Oak was originally part of the old School House which was Brampton's Secondary school, dating back to the 19th century. Some original features can still be seen, such as the gracious staircase leading down to the ground floor, the beautiful wooden bookcase which sits underneath, some original internal doors, original flooring, and dado rails, make this property a unique find and something to get excited about.
With five bedrooms, two bathrooms, two en suites, a beautiful living room with a large feature window overlooking Brampton church and the rooftops, a completely re-designed area that was originally two bedrooms and is now a stunning kitchen dining room with velux windows and feature lighting, and a basement that has endless development possibilities.
The current owners have restored the property back into a main residence, taking care to retain original features, whilst bringing the house to life with colour and style. The windows have been replaced with sash double glazed windows, replicating the original Georgian style, and the property is served with gas central heating.
The basement is a work in progress, having already been tanked and damp proofed, and the essential services installed for a kitchen. What you have here is scope for further development; a self contained Airbnb for potential income, a granny flat, teenage pad, or a guest suite.
Situated in the heart of Brampton, just off the high street, tucked away up a private driveway, with parking for five vehicles, lovely gardens to look out onto, a veranda to sit out on to finish the day and watch the sun go down; viewing is, of course, highly recommended.
Holme Oak, Manor Gardens, sits in the heart of Brampton, an attractive market town that is the ideal base for exploring Hadrian’s Wall, which is only 2 miles away. The border city of Carlisle is 9.7 miles away and offers a range of shops, restaurants, bars as well as the historic Castle and Cathedral.
Surrounding the town is the gently rolling countryside of the Irthing Valley and Geltsdale, leading up to the rugged beauty of the North Pennines aonb (Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty). A rich mosaic of woods, fields and moorlands crossed by numerous footpaths, bridleways and quiet roads makes for perfect walking and cycling country.
Close to the town are pockets of woodland and forest with open access and crisscrossed by waymarked routes and handy information panels – at Gelt Woods, Miltonrigg Wood, Rowbank Wood, Talkin Tarn and The Mote/Ridge Wood. A little further away are the beautiful hanging woodlands along the Irthing gorge at Combe Crag Wood and Gilsland Spa.
The low rolling hills conceal the outlying rural villages of Laversdale, Irthington, Walton, Lanercost, Talkin, Low Row, Hallbankgate and the former mining communities of Tindale and Midgeholme on the Pennines, whilst Gilsland, a spa town on the eastern edge of the county, straddles Cumbria and Northumberland.
To the north is Hadrian’s Wall, a 75-mile (120 km) long fortification extending from the Solway Firth to Wallsend-on-Tyne that signified the northern frontier of the Roman Empire. Its strategically placed forts, fascinating milecastles, turrets and signal stations can be easily accessed by the Hadrian’s Wall bus which links to Hadrian’s Wall Path National Trail and Hadrian’s Cycleway.
