Welcome to Suttle House!
After 18 months of renovation, discover this stunning 250-year-old Carlisle property for yourself
As one of the oldest dwellings in Carlisle, we can finally unveil the jewel in the crown of our Suttle Gardens development: Suttle House, after an 18-month renovation project which has taken it from dereliction to modern new family home.
Suttle House has existed in some form since the mid-18th Century. The crumbling building was on the cusp of demolition following a series of fires and vandalism incidents before we took it under our wing as part of our Suttle Gardens development.
With the wider development now complete, we can at last reveal the faithfully restored Suttle House for the first time.
No stone has been left unturned in the lengthy and detailed renovation process to bring the four-bedroom Suttle House back into use as a family home.
Bringing history and modernity together in harmony
Priced at £550,000, we have sensitively restored this Grade II historic Cumbrian home in a manner that honours the long history of the building.
External and internal works have been carried out to retain original features and materials, or else they have been replicated to match the original architecture and design of the property.
40% of the original roof titles were salvaged and reused and all repointing work to external brickwork was undertaken with a lime mortar mix to match what would have been used in the original construction.
Oak panelling has been installed within internal rooms, along with structural and strengthening work to retain the central staircase. Important character features such as timber sash windows and fireplaces have been restored or replaced wherever possible.
Beauty inside and out
Every inch of Suttle House has been treated with the utmost care during our renovations, including the outdoor space. The property’s landscaped gardens are now surrounded with new brick wall enclosures to recreate the grand design of an 18th century home, ensuring Suttle House retains the look and feel of a significant period property.
Our very own Colin Willetts, deputy manging director of Homes by Esh, expressed his excitement for the property’s reveal, commenting:
“This has been a long and painstaking project to ensure the Suttle House we recreate is the perfect centrepiece for the development which takes its name.
“We worked in partnership with the building conservation team from the local council to ensure every element of the construction and renovation programme reflected the high-level of detail required to retain and enhance period features.
“We even replicated traditional plastering methods throughout the internal space to ensure that the finished property is reflective of a period home with contemporary touches to bring the building up to modern building standards.
“We expect the property to attract a great deal of attention in the local sales market given its prominent history and location. However, we are assured that the new owner will be receiving a priceless piece of Cumbrian history given a new lease of life for a new family to enjoy.”
