Two historic properties bring new opportunities to the market with joint £3.1m price tag


Wolfen Mill, Preston and Staffield Hall in Penrith, two historic country retreats, have been put to the open market by Fleurets, with the opportunity for a new owner to acquire both properties for £3.1m.

Wolfen Mill, located in the Ribble Valley, was previously owned by Blackburn Rovers, Chelsea and Celtic footballer Chris Sutton, but under its current ownership has been converted into luxury apartments.

The property now offers nine apartments, a dining area, kitchen and guest lounge. The current owners commented: “Under our operation the apartments have been let on an individual basis, however we have also found that some guests book the entire complex to host their own events such as a conference or wedding.”

The second property for sale is Staffield Hall, situated amongst the open countryside near Penrith, Cumbria.

The property was built in 1848 for the marriage of Lady Jane Aglionby and is constructed of local red sandstone. The property comprises of eight holiday apartments and possesses impressive views across the Eden Valley.
