Cressbrook House

Our exclusive enclave of luxury homes is built in the grounds of the Cressbrook House, a historic property at the heart of Kirkby Lonsdale.

It creates a stunning backdrop to our gated community and is the inspiration for our latest luxury development. 

Built in 1850

Occupying an enviable position, within a pleasant stroll of Kirkby Lonsdale’s historic high street, Cressbrook House sets a high architectural standard for the surrounding area. 

You’ll notice that your new home echoes the white render and stone finish of Cressbrook House, creating a synergy with the original architecture, whilst updating it to reflect a modern design sensibilities. 

Cressbrook House

Originally built in 1850 by renowned local architect, George Webster, the building was created as a high status home for a local solicitor. Designed to emulate an Italian villa, the property was one of several landmark buildings created by the Kendal architect, including nearby Underley Hall and Holker Hall.  

During its 170-year history, this beautiful stone-built building has also been used as a Preparatory School and later owned by the Witherslack Group of Schools.
