Property description

Tenure: Freehold

Situated in the heart of this popular Eden Valley village, with easy access to the Yorkshire Dales National Park, an impeccably well presented, recently completed integration of a former farmhouse into the adjoining barn to create an excellent 4 bed family home with gardens & paddock circa 1.3 acres

From the centre of Appleby, go up the hill passing the castle following the B6260. Take a left turn in the hamlet of Burrells and travel along this road for approx. 2 miles. Take the first turn left into Great Ormside. Follow the road through the village towards the church and Victoria Cottage is on the right-hand side.

Presented to a high standard, with quality finish and fittings throughout, Victoria Cottage is a wonderfully spacious, contemporary home.

Having recently been completed by our clients the layout of the property has been well thought out to create a flexible environment, with two staircases allowing the partition of the former cottage from the new barn section making it ideal for use by a dependant relative, or as an "Air BnB" or potential holiday unit.

With ample parking to the front, to the rear are terraced, landscaped gardens leading to a newly planted orchard, enclosed vegetable garden and paddock. In all circa 1.3 acres.

Mains water and electricity, drainage to septic tank. Heating from a biomass system with 12 months remaining on the Renewable Heat Incentive scheme, returning in the region of £539 per quarter.
