Full description

A delightful three bedroomed family home, extended and comprehensively modernised and refurbished throughout to create undoubtedly one of the finest properties of its type along this sought after stretch of coast road between Silloth and Skinburness.
This is one of those favoured houses with an uninterrupted view across the Solway to Criffel and the Dumfriesshire and Kirkudbrightshire hills beyond. There are some spectacular sunsets in the west and the outlook will never change.
Silloth lies on the north west coast of Cumbria and the shoreline and adjoining countryside to both north and south is now an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The Lake District National Park is less than half an hour's drive to the south.
Silloth itself is a thriving community, the Victorian heart of which is now a conservation area. It caters well for everyday needs with mini-markets, a handsome parish church, primary and secondary schools, doctor's surgery, cafes, hotels and restaurants, popular 'Green' and esplanade and the renowned championship golf links. Wigton, Carlisle, Cockermouth and the more industrial centres of West Cumbria are all within comfortable commuting distance.
Since their purchase in 2007 the vendors have undertaken a programme of complete refurbishment. The house has been extended, re-slated, re-rendered. re-wired and re-plumbed, with re-plastering completed, new floors laid, kitchen, bathroom and shower room re-fitted, new drains have been laid, UPVC double glazing and gutters and facias installed, quality oak doors, skirtings and architraves fitted and the front garden has been completely landscaped. Although just having three conventional bedrooms, the front sitting room would certainly provide a fourth bedroom if required. Overall, an inspection is thoroughly recommended.
