Property description

Tenure: Freehold

Set on the fringe of this ever popular and highly sought after village, with easy access links to Cockermouth and the main towns of the Solway Coast, in a quiet rural area a well maintained and presented, deceptively spacious 3 bedroom family home set in generous private gardens.

From Cockermouth follow the A594 towards Dovenby turning right where signposted. Follow this road into the village. As the road bends right towards the entrance of Tallentire Hall the house is straight ahead of you.

Set back from the road, with ample parking and gardens to the front, and with a generous enclosed garden to the rear, Acorn House is a great chance to acquire a most useful family home offering spacious and flexible accommodation, with extension possibilities, subject to the necessary permissions.

Tallentire itself has a good local core, is a popular 'satellite' Village to the Georgian 'Gem' Town of Cockermouth, is sandwiched between the Solway Heritage Coast (designated an area of outstanding natural beauty) and the Lake District National Park (recently awarded 'UNESCO' World Heritage status). The Village is within the catchment of a good local Junior School (Bridekirk, Dovenby, awarded overall 'outstanding' by OFSTED), and the popular well rated Cockermouth Secondary School. The Village enjoys easy access via the A596 to Aspatria, Wigton and the border City of Carlisle or via the A66 West to the burgeoning industries of the Energy Coast with all its forthcoming investment or East to Keswick, Penrith and the M6 motorway.
