Full description

INTRODUCTION Situated in the heart of the village, this is the opportunity to purchase a substantial traditional style property. Owned by the same family for over 40 years, the property is currently divided into two flats but could be converted back in a good family home. Now requiring some updating, there is excellent scope to redevelop and personalise throughout. Available with no onward chain, viewing is recommended. 

ACCOMMODATION Entering the property to the ground floor into the entrance vestibule there is hanging for coats and a glazed door into the hallway. There are two storage heaters and two large cupboards.

The Lounge has a UPVC double glazed window facing the front and an open fire set to a tiled surround. There are two storage heaters. The adjoining kitchen has a range of basic base units and a UPVC double glazed window facing the rear. There is a cupboard with cylinder. The utility room provides rear access to the property and has a UPVC double glazed window and butler sink.

There are two further rooms to the ground floor which are currently used as bedrooms. They would be equally suitable as a dining room and study should the house be converted to one property.

There is also a bathroom to ground floor level fitted with a three piece suite

To the rear of the building is the entrance to the first floor flat. Stairs lead to a split landing where a utility room leads off. The staircase then continues to the first floor landing. There is access to the loft.

The Lounge faces the front aspect and has a UPVC double glazed window, two storage heaters and an open fire. There is a view over Orton village to the fells beyond. The kitchen has a UPVC double glazed window facing the rear aspect with view over fields and is fitted with base and wall units. There is a storage heater and built in cylinder cupboard. If the property was to be converted to one house, these two rooms would make impressive bedrooms

The first floor has three bedrooms, each with a UPVC double glazed window and two with storage heaters.

The bathroom to the first floor has a UPVC double glazed window and a three piece suite.
