Enjoying magnificent Lakeland views from an elevated position yet nestled down a private driveway on Lowther Street is Briar Cottage, a large, imposing and spacious detached home which sits in around 0.4 acres of beautiful, private gardens.
Located just a short walk away from Penrith town centre in what is locally known as the New Streets conservation area, this home is well placed for town centre living, but very rarely do properties in this location have extensive private gardens, off road parking, garaging and with windows framing the superb uninterrupted views across the town to the Lakeland fells. Internally the property is arranged over 3 floors, offering flexible living options with the second floor currently being used as an office space. On the ground floor, there is a large lounge, dining room, kitchen/diner with French Doors to the side, utility room, cloakroom with an additional flexible use room, currently used as a gym/games room but would make a great home office.
On the first floor, there are three double bedrooms, one with ensuite shower room, family bathroom and a staircase to the second floor where there is a further bedroom, currently used as a study.
Externally Briar Cottage is approached via a private driveway to an off-road parking area. To the front there is a beautiful, private garden with lawns, well stocked flower beds, seating areas, terraces, green house, established trees and shrubs and even a stunning eucalyptus tree, making this a very peaceful retreat in the heart of this desirable residential area. At the bottom of the garden, there is further off road parking and a detached garage.
This is a beautiful example of a well loved family home in a sought after area of Penrith. It is rare that a property with a sizable plot this location comes to the market and a viewing is highly recommended.


Briar Cottage sits in the popular New Streets conservation area, within walking distance in to the town centre. The market town of Penrith has excellent transport links to M6, A6 and A66, extensive local amenities, hospital, primary and secondary schools and an abundance of leisure and outdoor activities on the doorstep. The Lake District National Park and the Pennine Fells aonb are just a short distance away.
