Extraordinary Arts and Crafts House sleeping 10

A true Arts and Crafts home of the time, designed by the renowned architect ‘Webster’s of Kendal‘, with generous room sizes, oak detail, a splendid return staircase and magnificent stain glass windows overlooking the Lakeland falls. Commissioned by a wealthy Liverpool family for their summer vacations away from the hustle of city living, construction was finished in 1907. It was the first house in the area to have electricity.

In recent years, the house was purchased by another Liverpool based family who have lovingly restored the large Edwardian house back to its original glory. By retaining and restoring many of its earliest features, and keeping the interior design to the traditional Edwardian theme, the property has developed into an extraordinary, distinctive antique of the past and present.

Middle Reston sits just off the main route to all over The Lakes. It sits just a short walk from the village of Staveley where you will find the award-winning More Artisan Bakery and the biggest cycle shop in the UK, Wheelbase. There are also many walking options from the door, including Reston Scar and the Kentmere Horseshoe.


Sleeping ten people in luxury

Middle Reston is a stunning and unique Arts and Crafts house located in the Lake District’s National Park. The 3 storeys Edwardian house was built in 1907 as a gentlemen’s summer residence. The property is situated in a private, leafy location, with wonderfully mature and colourful gardens and grounds. The interior of the property still has many of the original quality and fine design features.

These include decorative stained-glass windows, oak panelling throughout, fine original fireplaces in almost every room and an impressive oak staircase that leads to all floors.

The ground floor offers 3 reception rooms, a large breakfast kitchen room with a double-sided log burner along with patio doors overlooking the garden. The first floor has five individual bedrooms and two bathrooms.

12 acres of wooded gardens

Middle Reston is blessed with almost 12 acres of wooded gardens which incorporate formal and natural areas, reputably designed by Mawson. It has a natural pond*, stream systems and waterfalls.

The beautifully landscaped gardens, two large patios, and seating areas are ideal for al fresco entertainment. A furnished summer house and a range of outbuildings comprising of a garage and 3 large stores. There is also the now derelict ‘Powerhouse’ a stone detached structure built at the same time as the original property from where they used to generate their own electricity.
