Full description

Tenure: Freehold

A simply stunning 3/4 bedroom detached period residence set in secluded grounds of approximately one acre and which includes an exciting development opportunity. Boasting a semi rural position on the outskirts of Calderbridge the property is only a short drive to neighbouring towns, schools and many of the area's major employment centres.

The property's private and landscaped gardens create the perfect setting for families and children and there is yet further potential to improve and add value by way of an adjoining annexe which just requires completing. Having already undergone a significant program of works by the present owners, the conversion itself would be relatively straight forward and could provide a home office/studio, ancillary accommodation for a dependent relative or for use in the holiday letting trade.

The main house offers a versatile layout which should suit a range of prospective purchasers and in brief comprises entrance vestibule, lounge/dining room, kitchen, two bedrooms; one of which is currently used as a sitting room/snug, family bathroom and a fabulous garden room with a part vaulted glass ceiling and bi-folding doors connecting it with the gardens. On the first floor there are two double bedrooms and a shower room.

All in all, a truly fascinating property, one which offers considerable potential. Viewing is essential.


Location
Calderbridge is a small hamlet located on the A595 north of Gosforth on Cumbria's west coast, giving easy access to neighbouring towns and villages, excellent nearby schools and many major employment centres including Sellafield. The western valleys of the Lake District National Park are within easy reach, together with the beautiful lakes and mountains of Ennerdale and Wastwater.

Services
Mains electricity and water. Calor gas. Heating from open fires and three storage heaters, with under floor heating in the garden room. Septic tank drainage. The annexe has electricity, but no other services connected. Please note - the mention of any appliances and/or services within these particulars does not imply that they are in full and efficient working order.

Directions
From the Whitehaven office proceed out of the town centre via Inkerman Terrace turning right at the traffic lights on to the A595. Carry on along this road for approximately six miles until you get into the village of Calder Bridge. At the traffic lights at the bottom of the hill proceed straight on, taking the next left turn signposted Ennerdale Bridge. Continue until reaching a sharp left hand bend and take the road that carries straight on. Calder Abbey Lodge is a short distance on the right hand side
