SITUATION AND DESCRIPTION Solway Bungalow sits beautifully in a large south facing garden plot, south of the village of Kirkbride. The location could be described as semi-rural and accessible. The area is noted for its natural interest and is just a short distance from the Solway Mosses, a national Nature Reserve, and just over five miles from the Solway Firth, including the Solway coast AONB. This area is well known for its migrating bird life. The nearby market town of Wigton provides a range of services, while the regional centre, Carlisle, has a broad range of social, leisure and retail opportunities. The city also benefits from being on the west coast main line providing direct services to London, Glasgow and Manchester Airport, to name just a few.
Solway Bungalow is a fine home of quality, providing generous accommodation in excess of 2200 sq. ft. Solid oak features throughout including doors, architraves and skirting boards. The accommodation is versatile and the living space particularly impressive. The main orientation is to the south and east over the delightful gardens, countryside and Lake District fells. The sitting room has a large picture window and cosy wood burning stove and for entertaining, a door leads into the dining room, which also has the benefit of a picture window and additional window to the east.
A third reception room currently used as a library, is a lovely peaceful room, having the benefit of French doors with side lights opening out onto the garden. The room also features French doors to the inner hall which align perfectly to French doors into the breakfast kitchen. This works well as when you sit at the kitchen table the view is through the library and out into the garden.
The bedrooms are all of a good size. Two are particularly generous, one having two windows to the south and view, the other east and private to the garden. The latter has a large ensutie bathroom which also has a shower cubicle. The house bathroom has a four piece suite which includes a shower cubicle. A cloakroom is provided. The study, which faces east to the garden, is of an appropriate size, easily suitable for use as a fourth bedroom.
What makes the property stand out are the superb gardens and setting. These have been beautifully planned and are meticulously maintained. The layout provides for a generous more formal garden which includes a secluded deck area at the rear. In addition there is an excellent working area with vegetable plots, fruit trees and a greenhouse. There are a number of timber outbuildings, all with power and light, a garage and ample parking for several cars.
In short, Solway Bungalow is a desirable package and viewing is highly recommended.
