Full description

Occupying a lovely position with an open view across the Solway Marshes, this is a handsome late Georgian detached house, full of period character and offering accommodation, although needing some general refurbishment, ideally suited to family occupation, professional couples or indeed "active" retirement. The house is Grade II listed as being of historical/historical interest.

Dating from the early years of the 19th century, Marsh House features delightful panelled doors, architraves with rosettes, panelled and reeded arches, cornicing and a superb staircase with handsome arched window. Further more, the storeroom annexe has striking lancet windows and exposed ceiling beams.

The accommodation is very typically laid out with central hall, two front reception rooms, rear kitchen and day/breakfast room with corresponding double bedrooms and bathroom above and a further single bedroom over the hall.

Outside are a manageable garden, double gates providing vehicular access, timber garage and further store sheds. The spring and summer bulbs and mature trees complement the site.

There is partial gas fired central heating.

The house is approached by an unmade but quite well surfaced track which leads out, eventually, to Grune Point. At the end of the track, the county highway leads into Skinburness and then down Skinburness Road to Silloth town centre, a total distance of around two miles.

There are found a good range of day-to-day facilities including shops, post office, doctors' surgery, primary and secondary schools, sports clubs, small supermarkets, handsome parish church and the renowned championship golf links. For those needing to commute, Wigton, Carlisle, Cockermouth, Maryport and the more industrial centres of West Cumbria beyond are all within comfortable driving distance.
