Full description

Originally built in 1919 but extended and completely modernised in more recent years, this is an intriguing detached house with three reception rooms, three bedrooms, joiner-made kitchen, central heating and double glazing.

Outside is an excellent range of workshops and store sheds, currently utilised for a joinery business, the equipment for which is available by separate negotiation if required. Further outbuildings include a delightful summer house, garage and store buildings.

The house stands in a most attractive and unusually private garden with ample off-road parking.

Ash Lea stands on the very fringe of Abbeytown, a popular and indeed thriving village astride the B5302 exactly half way between Wigton and Silloth. Close by are the historic Holme Cultram Abbey as well as the village shop/post office, primary school, new sports field and inn. Wigton and Silloth both cater well for everyday needs with small supermarkets, secondary schools, sports clubs and, at Wigton, a railway station.

For those needing to commute, Carlisle, Cockermouth and the more industrial centres of West Cumbria beyond are all within comfortable driving distance as are the Solway Coast, now an area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and The Lake District National Park.

This is a wonderful opportunity not only for an easily run and attractively appointed home but for those seeking adaptable outbuildings ideally suited for a home business. An inspection is thoroughly recommended.
