If you’re looking for a home that’s ready to move into, or a lock-up-and-leave second property, accessible to the Eden Valley and Lake District, then this outstanding apartment should be on your must-view list.

The contemporary first-floor property has been upgraded and significantly improved in recent times resulting in a stylish home which has the benefit of its own private entrance lobby and an elevated setting providing an open aspect over rolling countryside.

It is in a semi-rural location that is convenient for the A69 and M6 but is also just a five-minute drive to central Carlisle.

The apartment is set in communal grounds and accessed by way of a private entrance lobby and stairs leading to a first-floor landing with built-in cupboard.

The apartment has a beautiful open-plan living kitchen which includes a beautiful Schuller German fitted kitchen with large breakfast bar, high-gloss white cabinets, ceiling spotlights and contemporary pendant lighting.

The space is full of light from triple-aspect windows.

There are two double bedrooms, both with built-in wardrobes and one with a dual aspect. They share the stylish high-quality bathroom which, like the rest of the apartment, is decorated in on-trend soft greys.

The property is conveniently located for the M6 and A69.

The apartment in Wheelbarrow Court, Scotby, is for sale at £160,000 from Hayward Tod, tel. 01228 810300.
