For Sale by the Modern Method of Auction: Starting Bid Price of £175,000 plus Reservation Fee.

Pennine View is a detached bungalow in a lovely setting with glorious views over to the Pennines and Upper Eden Valley. It is situated in an elevated position in a desirable plot in the village of Church Brough.

The village has the historic Brough Castle, St Michael's Church, a primary school and is within easy walking distance of Brough, which has a village shop, outreach post office, an hotel, public house and thriving medical practice with in-house pharmacy. There are regular bus services to Kendal and Penrith and easy access to the Carlisle - Settle Railway at Kirkby Stephen and Appleby. Secondary schools are either the highly regarded Kirkby Stephen or Appleby Grammar schools. The village is just four miles from the popular market town of Kirkby Stephen which itself has a variety of day-to-day amenities including supermarket, general shops, banks, hotels, public houses, restaurants and various sporting facilities. Brough is also close to the A66 for Scotch Corner (A1[M]) and Penrith (M6), the Lakes and Carlisle and to the south via Kirkby Stephen to Tebay (M6) for Kendal and Lancaster.

The bungalow probably dates from the late 1960's and offers good accommodation with the potential to extend, subject to planning. It has a kitchen with small pantry, excellent living room with open fire, dining end and beautiful picture windows to enjoy the views. There are two double bedrooms and a house shower room, but with reconfiguration, a third bedroom could probably be created. The property has the benefit of modern double glazing and appears in good condition externally, but would benefit from internal refurbishment.

Outside, there is a detached garage with workshop area, and an outside shed. There is ample parking on the tarmac drive. The gardens are well maintained with lawns, borders, a rockery style area, patio and fruit trees.

Pennine View offers the opportunity to create a lovely single storey home in a beautiful setting.
