Property description

Tenure: Freehold

George House is a substantial Grade II listed village house with attached annex situated in the centre of Kirkoswald, a popular Eden Valley village. Despite areas of the property requiring a level of renovation, the property has an abundance of character and versatility, and would suit a variety of buyers. The property is available with no onward chain and must be viewed to appreciate its potential.

Kirkoswald lies in the Eden Valley, amidst some of Cumbria’s loveliest countryside. For those wishing to commute, Penrith is just 9 miles away and Carlisle is approx. 16 miles away. The M6 is easily accessed at Junctions 40, 41 and 42. The village's main street is flanked by randomly arranged, traditional dwellings which creates a timeless scene. The village is fortunate to retain a shop/post office, primary school, church, two public houses, doctor’s surgery and a cricket ground/playing field.

Mains electricity, water and drainage. Oil fired central heating installed. Telephone line installed subject to BT regulations. Please note - the mention of any appliances and/or services within these particulars does not imply that they are in full and efficient working order.

Take the A6 north from Penrith, after Plumpton turn right for Lazonby and Kirkoswald. Follow the road through Lazonby and over the river Eden, up into the village, the property is on the right hand side.
