SITUATION AND DESCRIPTION Barnet Rigg is located amongst undulating Cumbrian countryside and the approach is via a newly re surfaced lonning from the road. As soon as you arrive at the property the wonderful setting is apparent. Far reaching panoramic views are on offer from the property and the various areas of the garden. The location is accessible and just 3.5 miles from Dalston where a generous range of village amenities are available. The regional capital, Carlisle is 8 miles. Carlisle has a superb range of amenities and is on the west coast main line for regular access to London in around three hours twenty minutes.

Barnet Rigg is a substantial sandstone house with plenty of character and genuine period features. This becomes apparent the moment you enter the hall. The beautiful cantilevered stone staircase with its elegant handrail spirals up to the first floor landing. The entrance hall has a porcelain tiled floor and this continues into a wonderful kitchen. The generously sized breakfast kitchen has windows to two elevations, including a large picture window to the garden, fields and woodland beyond. The room features a beautiful wide stone arch, complete with Aga and Aga Companion cooker. A range of integral appliances are included. Of importance is the large shelved utility room which houses the central heating boiler providing ample space for boots and coats.

The living accommodation is generous. The living room has the benefit of a wood burning stove. There are three other living spaces, one having access to the courtyard and another with dual aspect, featuring an arched window to the rear decked terrace and view. This room also has a door out to the rear terrace via stone steps. The bedroom accommodation provides flexibility and includes four bedrooms and a bathroom on the first floor. Of particular interest is the lower ground living space, which provides two further rooms with vaulted ceilings, a modern shower room and a walk-in storage cupboard. The lower ground floor also has the benefit of a separate access and could provide a single level annex for a dependent relative or could be utilised as a home office/gym or additional guest bedrooms if required.

Externally the property sits within an ample site. There is a large expanse of open garden to the side of the property and the landscaped lawn and deck area which sit below the property and takes full advantage of the superb views.

Viewing is advised to fully appreciate not only the wonderful space but also the very pleasant rural setting.
