SITUATION Located off the main road in the centre of the village of Thurstonfield. Conveniently located less than 6 miles from central Carlisle and just 3 miles from the city by-pass for access to the A595 and M6. The nearby villages of Kirkbampton and Burgh-by-Sands provide some good basic amenties including junior schools and public houses. A full range of amenities is available in Carlisle. The village is served by a limited bus service but is well connected for access to the main road network for travel by car. The Solway Coast AONB is within easy reach and provides excellent leisure opportunities and is famed for its local birdlife.  

DESCRIPTION Shepherd's Hill Cottage is a most interesting property believed to date back, in part, to the 1700's. The property's appearance from the road side gives little away with the gardens to the rear providing a superb setting and offering an extremely pleasant outlook from the main living space. The dining room benefits from a large multi fuel stove, which is currently used to heat the room and tops up the water heating. The sitting room has an ornate feature fire surround but is not currently set up as a working fire. The upvc double glazed conservatory to the rear is afforded an excellent view over the diverse rear garden. To the first floor there are four bedrooms, two of which are comfortable doubles.  

OUTSIDE It is the external space which really makes this property stand out. The large rear garden is afforded a good level of privacy and is filled with a variety of mature trees and shurbs and is designed as such that it provides year-round interest. There is a lean-to greenhouse which features a mature fig tree and productive grape vine at the rear of the detached single garage. Separate carport and driveway. Ample parking. The garage benefits from light and power. At the bottom of the garden are two small ponds which are a haven for wildlife. The rear garden provides a westerly aspect and as such is a real sun trap.  

SERVICES Mains water, electricity and drainage. Oil fired central heating warms the radiators and heats the water. The multi-fuel stove supplements the water heating as well as heating the bathroom towel rail and the dining room. Water may also be heated by electric immersion. Fully double glazed. Aluminium guttering. 

N.B. We are informed by the owners that the central portion of the property is of non-standard construction (clay). There is a more modern brick/block extension to the side.
