Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Location: Orton is a relatively undiscovered village which is about 20 minutes' drive from Penrith/Kendal and has excellent access to the M6 (Junctions 38 and 39). Orton is a pretty traditional Westmorland village, enjoying a delightful rural position built around a central green with two streams crossed by many footbridges and having a fine church on a hill overlooking tranquil countryside.

The surrounding countryside is indeed very beautiful and unusual in having large tracts of unfenced land providing a huge variety of interesting walks. The area has excellent access to the Lake District and Yorkshire Dales National Parks, both within less than half an hour's drive. The village itself has retained many of the services lost in recent years by other rural communities. There is a village school, shop/P.O., surgery, inn, tearooms, church, chapel, small chocolate factory producing a now-famous range of fine chocolates, and monthly Farmers' Market of national acclaim.

Scar Side House is situated nestling below the Orton Fells and is approached by a quiet country lane and seemingly in totally remote and unspoilt countryside, yet is only a mile from the village centre and within a 3.5 mile drive of Junction 38 on the M6.

From Orton Village take the Raisbeck Road for 600 yards, at the mini crossroads take the left turning marked Street Lane and continue for .7 of a mile to the top of the lane where you will find the property.  

Description: Scar Side House has recently undergone a programme of improvements that now provides the new owners a home to move into and enjoy. The living space is both generous and well laid with a 26' x 25' living room with open staircase to a galleried landing and an excellent 20' x 17' breakfast kitchen with adjoining snug and conservatory, and a boot room and cloaks with WC completes the ground floor. On the first floor is a galleried landing, the master bedroom with en-suite shower room, three further double bedrooms, two with their own en-suites and the house bathroom. Outside you will find plenty of parking and easy to manage gardens. A home that offers flexibility that would suit a variety of purchasers be it as a family home, or to run as a holiday let or even bed and breakfast. The next step is an appointment to view.
