Full description

Tenure: Freehold

A perfect country cottage that combines rustic features like sandstone walls, exposed beams and a real fire with modern conveniences such as up-graded gas central heating system, double glazing throughout and a brand new walk-in shower.

Located on the edge of the village of Westnewton, the property is perfect for anyone seeking a quieter life in a real, Cumbrian village - without being too far away from essential local amenities. Offering views over open countryside to the Northern Fells beyond, easy access to the nearby Solway coast or Lake District National Park make it perfect as a base for exploring the great outdoors.

Westnewton is a thriving, friendly community with a village hall that is well used by local groups. The ducks on Westnewton beck, the stream that runs the full length of the village, provide additional traffic calming! A great place for young families, the local school is a short walk away with the village play area just behind the school.

Internally, the large lounge offers plenty of family space and is large enough to accommodate a formal dining area if required. Two windows provide lots of light and a recently installed coal fire and surround offer the chance for cosy nights in. A recent extension to the main building is presently used as a downstairs bedroom but this room could equally be utilised as a second lounge, play room, office or dining room.

The kitchen is large and light and the country-style, fitted units complement the authentic, wooden latched doors that extend throughout the property. There is room enough for a full-sized dining table for informal family meals and washing-up will probably seem less of a chore when looking out over the neighbouring countryside.

A small utility area houses the new, gas combi-boiler and dryer and the ground floor accommodation is completed by a shower room complete with newly fitted, walk-in shower.

Upstairs, a large double bedroom has a real cottage feel with vaulted ceilings and exposed beams. A smaller, single room offers plenty of space for bedroom furniture, whilst a handy storage cupboard between the rooms completes the internal accommodation.

Outside, a flat, easily maintained garden offers scope for either reluctant or keen gardeners and in addition to the spacious detached garage, also contains a traditional coal and wood store and a handy outside toilet. Views over the adjoining countryside from the garden make this the perfect place to relax after a busy day.

In summary, a picture-perfect country cottage with lots of character, space and modern conveniences. Perfect for anyone seeking rural living without being too isolated, the layout and flat plot also make this perfect for anyone with mobility issues.

Early viewing is highly recommended.
