THE PROPERTY Holme Eden Hall is one of only a handful of Calendar Houses in the UK, so called for the 365 windows for the days of the year, 12 corridors to represent the months, seven entrances for the days of the week and four floors to represent the seasons. Due in part to the rarity of such buildings and the architectural importance and history of Holme Eden Hall, the building is listed Grade II* by English Heritage. Pevsner, in his famous book Buildings of England said of Holme Eden Hall it bristles with ornamental chimneys and has a porch tower and mullion windows. The skyline seen from a distance is superb. Having been saved from decay in 2003 the property was restored to an extremely high standard and converted into 12 unique apartments. Apartment No. 10 is located on the north east side of the building, enjoying superb views over the River Eden. Situated on the first floor with access via a wide stone spiral staircase, the apartment offers flexible accommodation, ideal for entertaining, including a fine sitting room, open plan kitchen/dining room, two double bedrooms, both with en-suite shower rooms, library or third bedroom as well as a family bathroom, balcony overlooking the central courtyard and secure lock-up in the basement and allocated car parking space. 

LOCATION The Village of Warwick Bridge is located in the Upper Eden Valley, close to the Lake District National Park. The area is perfect either as a permanent base or as a holiday/weekend retreat being close to some of the most famous areas in the north of England. The ancient city of Carlisle and the World Heritage Site of Hadrian's Wall are both 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. Whilst the village may enjoy rural surroundings and certainly Holme Eden Hall has an air of timelessness about it, modern day facilities and services are close by and the area is extremely well served by mainline communications. The M6 motorway connecting Scotland with Manchester and the Midlands is only 2.7 miles away whilst in Carlisle, along with a range of everyday services and cultural facilities, the West Coast Mainline railway offers regular services between London Euston, Birmingham, Manchester and north to Glasgow and Edinburgh. Local sporting facilities include Carlisle, Stoneyholme and Eden Golf courses, the racecourse at Carlisle along with numerous high class fishing rivers. The proximity of several national parks and upland areas provides the base for many outdoor

pursuits and interests. 

HISTORIC NOTE Built in 1833 in a Tudor style for the then prominent Peter Dixon head of Peter Dixon & Sons, a famous shipping and cotton milling company, Holme Eden Hall was constructed as his family seat and was designed by the renowned Newcastle architect John Dobson. Following Dixons death, the estate was put up for auction, and being concerned for its future it was purchased by Mr Liddell of Warwick Hall, the adjoining estate who subsequently bequeathed the property to an order of Benedictine nuns who remained at Holme Eden Abbey as it was renamed, until 1983 when the order was disbanded. It briefly returned to private ownership before being sold to become a nursing home in 1985.  

TENURE The property is leasehold and we are advised that the property is held on the balance of a 999 year lease from 2005. A management company is established to look after the communal areas of the property with the current charge of £???? per month.
