The chance to own ‘December’ in a calendar with a difference

Filed under: Latest News — Four Communications @ 6:38 pm

Jackson-Stops & Staff in York is offering the opportunity to buy “December” – the perfect apartment for a Christmas celebration.

Holme Eden Hall, in the village of Warwick Bridge in Cumbria, is a Grade II listed horologically themed ‘calendar’ house with 365 windows, 12 corridors, seven exits and entrances and four floors for the four seasons of the year.

The theme was honoured when the property was divided into 12 apartments in 2003. Each apartment was named after a month in the year and “December” is now for sale.  The estate was designed by the Newcastle architect John Dobson and built in 1833 in a Tudor style for the then prominent Peter Dixon, who was head of Peter Dixon & Sons, a famous shipping and cotton milling company. Holme Eden Hall was constructed as his family seat and remained in the family until his death.

Jamie Adam of Jackson-Stops & Staff in York said: “This must be the ultimate Christmas present – and it certainly beats the conventional gift of a calendar.”

“December” is located on the top floor with exceptional views over the carefully landscaped grounds and beyond. Holme Eden Hall is located on the banks of the river Eden and is surrounded by glorious countryside.  A wide hallway serves as access to the principal rooms, including a living room with attractive gothic tracery windows and original fireplace and a fully fitted kitchen. There are two double bedrooms, the master of which has courtyard views and an en suite bathroom. The second bedroom has an original feature fireplace and fitted wardrobes. The apartment enjoys many original features and has been maintained to a very high standard by the current owner.

Holme Eden Hall enjoys attractive communal grounds to all sides and overlooks the adjoining water meadows and river Eden.  A communal gated entrance leads to the front of the building where each apartment has allocated private parking. Warwick Bridge is located in the Upper Eden Valley, close to the Lake District national park.  The area is perfect as both a permanent base or as a holiday/weekend retreat. The ancient city of Carlisle and the World Heritage Site of Hadrian’s Wall are close by as are the Solway Firth, Scottish Borders, Yorkshire Dales and Howgill Fells. The regional cities of Newcastle, Manchester, Glasgow and Edinburgh are easily accessible.

Apartment no. 12, Holme Eden Hall is available through Jackson-Stops & Staff, York for a guide price of £249,000.
