SITUATION AND DESCRIPTION White Hill forms part of a small rural settlement beautifully located at the end of a lane approximately half a mile from the main road and just a few minutes from the village of Walton. The accessible setting is superb with easy connections to the B3618 and the A6071 via Walton. The southerly views over the King Water Valley towards the fells are superb. There are good options for travel in all directions. There is a good level of amenity available in a number of nearby villages, the market town of Brampton and the regional capital, Carlisle. Lees Hill and Lanercost Church of England Primary Schools are 2 and 4.5 miles by car respectively. There is a bus from the top of the lane for William Howard Secondary School in Brampton. The M6 motorway at junction 44 is approximately 11.5 miles. Carlisle has a superb range of social, leisure and retail opportunities and has the benefit of being on the West Coast Mainline for direct services to London in around 3 hours 20 minutes.
White Hill and surrounds have a long history. Of interest is a Coat of Arms, dated 1611 of Lord William Howard and his wife Lady Elizabeth Dacre now on a lintel stone which was repositioned in 1893. The elevations are pleasing and the accommodation well laid out. The large entrance hall leads into the generous living space. All the principal rooms enjoy a bright southerly aspect and views. The living room has the benefit of a fireplace with multi-fuel stove. Access from here is into a lobby with door to the garden and to the dining room/playroom. Of interest is the large farmhouse style kitchen which is definitely the heart of the home providing ample space for living and dining. A range of fitted units is provided as is a large island. This is a lovely bright room with extensive glazing to the south east and the south west. A door provides access onto a bright terrace and the garden which is open to the view. This is a wonderful place to sit and enjoy the peace of the surroundings. The large utility room is a must for a rural based property providing ample space for coats and wellies. Access door to courtyard and window to the west.
The accommodation on the ground floor is versatile and includes a double bedroom and a garden room. Together these could be utilised in the form of an annex as there is access to a shower room off the hall. The first floor accommodation is generous and the large main bedroom has space to take an ensuite if required.
The setting is delightful and the gardens complement the property well. A single and double storey outbuilding provide excellent space incorporating a large garage and or for hobbies, storage but equally offer tremendous potential to create a studio or independent cottage amongst other things, subject to planning. White Hill is a desirable package and viewing is recommended.
