Property Description

Full description

A three bedroom detached character property on a large plot, located in the Eden Valley village of Little Strickland. A former school, the property was comprehensively renovated, upgraded and extended in 2008 to create a well-balanced, energy efficient home.

The internal layout comprises a large family dining kitchen, with solid oak fronted cabinets, granite worktops, slate floor and under floor heating, leading to a generous living room, with Franco-Belge multifuel stove within sandstone surround and a feature staircase.

The ground floor is completed by a garden room with folding sliding doors, and a shower room and utility, all with under floor heating.

Stairs from the sitting room lead to the first floor, with landing area, family bathroom with over bath shower and three good- sized bedrooms - the master enjoying countryside views.

The property has a rare combination of character features and high energy efficient credentials, due to high levels of insulation, condensing boiler, double glazing, solar thermal panels and rainwater harvesting system.

Outside the driveway comfortably fits three cars and the former playground has been transformed into attractive enclosed gardens with lawned areas, orchard, vegetable garden, open-fronted stone store, wooden shed and greenhouse.

Little Strickland lies close to the A6, with easy access to Shap and Penrith for major amenities and transport links.
