Farm steading offers lifestyle opportunity


Hillside Farm, a bungalow and farm steading with a range of buildings and land, offers an excellent lifestyle or commercial opportunity.

The property, which is subject to an agricultural occupancy restriction, comprises the substantial detached bungalow and former farmhouse with commercial agricultural buildings in almost four acres of land.

For anyone looking for a new venture or continuation of an existing business, the steading is suitable for a host of uses including livestock, horticulture or commercial units.

Hillside Farm is in a good location between Penrith and Carlisle with excellent schooling, shopping, leisure and travel opportunities. The M6 is close by, providing easy access through Cumbria to Scotland, the North-East and South of England.

The bungalow covers a large area with three to five bedrooms. The main accommodation is accessed via a reception hallway with cloaks cupboard and Karndean flooring.

There is a spacious sitting room with a living flame effect gas fire and triple aspect, and patio doors to the garden. The breakfasting kitchen also has Karndean flooring and a range of fitted wall and floor units with integrated appliances.

There are two further reception rooms - a dining room with serving hatch from the kitchen, and the snug/bedroom five, with gas fire and patio doors to the garden.

The triple-aspect master bedroom with south-facing main window includes a range of fitted wardrobes, drawers and a dressing table. Adjoining is a recently installed en-suite shower room.

There are three further bedrooms, one of which is currently used as a study, all served by the family bathroom. In addition, there is a useful loft which is part-boarded and has power and light.

Outside a double garage sits in the low-maintenance gardens, which have lawns and hedged borders, and there is ample parking on a gravelled driveway.

The farm steading includes a detached property with a range of buildings and land comprising nearly three and three-quarter acres that could be used for a variety of purposes. Planning prevents the property from being used as a residence.

The buildings are two detached single-storey buildings, wich could be utilised for storage or as workshops, and two larger agricultural buildings suitable for lifestock or commercial units.
