LOCATION Wonderful peaceful setting within the village adjacent to the church grounds on the fringe of the Lake District National Park. Beautiful views and walks to hand. Accessible to a number of charming villages with amenity including Ireby, Uldale and Caldbeck. The A595 is just four minutes by car (1.6 miles) connecting Carlisle and Cockermouth. Each offers a good range of shopping, dining and leisure options. The regional centre Carlisle is a city of historical note and has a growing café culture and excellent communication links including the M6 and a mainline station serving London direct in around three hours fifteen minutes. Boltongate is well placed for exploring the beaches of the Solway Coast, the Eden Valley and Hadrian's Wall UNESCO World Heritage Site. The market town of Wigton has good amenities and a railway station serving Carlisle and West Cumbria.
DESCRIPTION A charming home in a lovely setting with plenty of parking and a small outbuilding providing options subject to planning. The accommodation is generous at over 1,400 sq. feet. Entry is into a double width west facing reception room featuring a stone fireplace housing a wood burning stove. There are exposed beams and plenty of space for living and dining. At the rear is a fitted breakfast kitchen with window and door to the east facing private garden. The sheltered space is perfect for alfresco living. A good utility space serves as a good boot room and a WC is provided. On the first floor are three double bedrooms and a spacious family bathroom with bath and separate shower cubicle. One of the bedrooms has an ensuite shower room.
The garden and parking compliment the property beautifully. Of interest and providing further opportunities subject to planning is the former hearse house. Sometimes referred to 'Parish Stables', these were usually adjacent to churches and used for horses and carriages for funerals, becoming redundant when motorised hearses arrived on the scene.
