It sits in an enviable position within a small community of properties on the edge of town, yet under a mile from the town centre so with good access to facilities as well as Outstanding schools. There's also good access to Keswick as well as the Lorton Valley - absolutely perfect for those enjoying an active lifestyle.
The views are outstanding! From the back garden you can enjoy the peace and quiet of the location, listen to the bird song, hear the flow of the River Cocker and admire the pastoral view with the mountains of the Northern Lake District in the distance.
Inside the house is perfect for a family, with two reception rooms and a conservatory as well as a delightful kitchen and upstairs there are four bedrooms and a bathroom. Outside there's a garage, ample parking and an enclosed garden with patio, lawn and a shed.
It's a one-off property in an idyllic location and the chance of a lifetime to have a forever home in such a tranquil setting.
