H&H Land and Property has this week announced the sale of High Dyke Estate, built for Robinson Mitchell, who also built the UK’s first livestock Auction Mart.
Mitchell, commonly known as the pioneer of selling stock by auction built his High Dyke Estate near Cockermouth in 1878. The estate was also home to Lady Ankarat, daughter of the Earl of Carlisle prior to her being tragically killed in a riding accident in1943.
This 255.65 acre residential and sporting estate on the edge of the Lake District National Park was built as a model estate. Today it is still a model property, ideal for someone wanting to create a stunning residential and sporting estate in the shadow of the Lake District fells. It comes with all the trimmings that you would expect from an impressive residential house, cottages, indoor arena, loose boxes, grazing land, and woodland.
High Dyke Estate is being sold through the Carlisle Office of H&H Land and Property as a whole or in 5 Individual lots, with a guide price of £1,845,000.
With views in all directions this is a large and impressive seven bedroomed family house retaining many original features such as fireplaces, cornicing, flagged and wooden floors. There are three cottages and the former farm buildings have been carefully developed into a top quality equine livery yard with a full range of boxes and feed stores.
The most spectacular feature is the purpose built 32 x 20 metre indoor arena with Eurotrack floor finish and shadow-less sulphur lighting, providing all year round riding facilities. An outdoor arena is also finished with a sand/woodchip surface.
The large acreage of farmland and woodland offer excellent grazing, mowing, sporting and further equine potential.
The Estate is being sold with shooting rights and although not currently developed the woods and topography of the land provide the new owner with a perfect base to make a great shoot. In addition there may be by separate negotiation the opportunity to secure further sporting rights on neighbouring land.
“Properties like these very rarely come to the open market, especially ones with shooting rights.” says Selling Agent Craig Brough for H&H Land and Property.
“This is a ring fenced estate, which provides both excellent investment and commercial opportunities for the new owner. It is suitable for a full range of uses and offers tremendous potential to further develop the equine business through a cross country course or for conventional farming purposes”.
The property is offered for sale as a whole, or in five lots, by Private Treaty.
