House plus kennels, Cumbria
I have greyhounds, and birds - lots of birds. Most days I get up at silly-o-clock to fit the menagerie around getting to and from work. Plus we're rapidly running out of space.
So when I saw this house, with more than enough room for me, hubby, kids and animals - I was besotted.
The three-bed detached house comes with a nicely-built cattery/kennels, a paddock and lovely big gardens with several outhouses. In all around threequarters of an acre.
Some of the rooms look like the sellers acquired a job-lot of tawny varnish, but there are lovely features too: cast iron stoves and fireplaces, flagged floors and exposed brick.
Croft House is in Reagill, about nine miles from Penrith, in Cumbria. It's on the market at £285k, through Wilkes Green & Hill. Details and more pictures here.
