Full description

A truly exceptional, substantially extended semi-detached house occupying a favoured position in this ever popular location.

This is a classic, inter-war property with typical double bow-bay window front elevation and a hipped, slated roof. What cannot be seen from the street is, however, a substantial two storey extension which has added a different dimension to the accommodation. A superb dining kitchen with feature brick fireplace, granite-topped island console, and five velux roof lights has been added with a smaller, first floor extension providing a delightful double bedroom with exposed truss and Juliette balcony above. There is now a ground floor bathroom as well as first floor shower room and, outside, a double length garage including an office/study has been built.

If ever there was a deceptive house of considerable character, well worthy of an internal inspection then this is it!

The house stands just over a quarter of a mile north of the centre of Silloth, now designated a conservation area. On hand is an excellent range of day-to-day facilities including handsome parish church, primary and secondary schools, doctor's surgery, refurbished post office, hotels and cafes, small supermarkets, "the green", esplanade, the dock and also the renowned championship golf links.

For those needing to commute, Wigton and Carlisle are 11 miles and 22 miles to the east respectively and Maryport, Cockermouth and the more industrial centres of West Cumbria are within half an hour's drive to the south. The coast line north and south of the town is designated An Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and The Lake District National Park is also readily accessible.
