4 bed Semi-detached House


Ireby, Wigton, Cumbria


Property Description

Situated in the centre of one of our area's most sought after villages, lying as it does just outside the Lake District National Park, West View is a charming, thoroughly renovated late Georgian house providing truly deceptive accommodation on 3 floor levels together with an adjoining barn and a most attractive rear garden. Since purchasing the property in 2004 a substantial extension has been built across the rear of the house to create a fabulous dining kitchen with lobby, shower room and office/study off, extensive re-slating has been undertaken, the attic has been converted into a fine fourth bedroom with en-suite shower room and the rear living room has also been extended to create a fine family room. A new staircase has been installed, new floors laid and extensive rewiring and replumbing carried out. There are both oil fired central heating and sealed unit double glazing. Overall, this is an excellent family home and an inspection is thoroughly recommended. Ireby lies immediately outside the Lake District National Park boundary in central North Cumbria. The village supports a church, primary school, community hall and public house, the neighbouring towns of Wigton, Cockermouth and Keswick all catering well for everyday needs (primary and secondary schools, numerous sports clubs, leisure facilities, general shops and supermarkets, bus services etc). For those needing to commute, Carlisle and the more industrial centres of West Cumbria are all within comfortable driving distance and Bassenthwaite Lake is just over 4 miles to the south.
