Description If it really is all about the location, then Tiffle Bank is worthy of consideration based on that criteria alone. Its quiet cul de sac setting overlooking rolling fields towards Latterbarrow and Colthouse.. Thoughtfully extended, the well balanced accommodation lends itself to satisfying a wide variety of needs without compromise, and still somehow offers a tantalising opportunity for further enhancement, should you feel the need, as the enormous integral garage would readily convert to provide additional living space for those who might find the two reception rooms and three (or four) double bedrooms not quite enough.

The entrance hall gives you the option of turning into the bay fronted, dual aspect sitting room with its cosy wood burning stove on your left, or into the separate, bay fronted dining room on your right. The Kitchen is fitted with wall and base units having complementary work surfaces with integrated sink and a half with drainer and breakfast bar. Integrated appliances include a De Dietrich 4 ring induction hob above with extractor over, AEG oven, AEG microwave, Bosch dishwasher, AEG fridge and AEG freezer. The kitchen has access to a large side porch, which can double as a boot room and leads to a handy utility cupboard. There is also a lovely double bedroom with fitted wardrobes and the house bathroom on this level, which means that if you have future retirement in the back of your mind, the ground floor alone holds everything which you might need.

Beyond the dining room is the extension, which not only includes that spacious garage but also the staircase which leads to the first floor where the primary bedroom is situated with beautiful views to the front and a glazed door leading to the private garden at the rear. There are plenty of built-in wardrobes again, as well as a stylish en-suite bathroom. There is a perfect home office or study/hobbies room on the opposite side of the small landing, through which access is gained to the third double bedroom. The home office has been put to bedroom use in the past, and does include a WC and there is plenty of storage provision in the eaves cupboards.

The gardens are an absolute delight. The lower level at the rear includes a large patio with steps leading up to a higher lawn, where you will find a garden shed, a greenhouse and a wonderful summerhouse, complete with power and light and from which you can enjoy those panoramic views even on the less sunny days.

Whether you are seeking a warm and welcoming family residence, a peaceful retirement spot (now or in the future), a relaxing weekend and holiday retreat or a simply wonderful holiday let (contents available by separate negotiation if desired) - Tiffle Bank just has to be top of your list for early viewing.
