Property description

Tenure: Freehold

Homes with this much land don't often come up in this price range, so if you are actively searching for somewhere to accommodate your horses, or you just want plenty of space around you then this semi detached period home with approximately 6 acres of land, stables and adjoining barns/outbuildings could be perfect for you. The main paddock lies to the front with two loose boxes, tack room and lovely views to the Lakeland Fells plus there is a further enclosed area to turn out at the side of the house, surrounded by partly wooden gardens... a delight! This characterful home has three decent first floor bedrooms, a living room, separate dining room, family room, kitchen and a utility room, a first floor bathroom and a ground floor shower room. The outbuildings include an attached barn, a separate garage, a workshop and an outhouse. This is a rare find and no mistake...
