If you’re a first-time buyer ready to step on to the property ladder, this semi-detached house in a convenient Carlisle location may be of interest.

Not only is it on a large corner plot with front and back gardens and within walking distance of the city centre but it is also close to shops, a supermarket and first schools.

But perhaps best of all for a new home owner, it has kitchen appliances of oven, hob and extractor, washing machine and fridge already in place.

The kitchen is at the back of the house and also includes wall and floor units in pale wood with darker work surfaces, on-trend pale grey metro wall tiles and a fitted cupboard.

The large living room runs the full length of the property and is warmed by a wall-mounted living-flame gas fire.

It has wooden flooring and French doors leading to the rear patio and garden.

Upstairs the landing has a built-in cupboard, and access to loft with doors to two double bedrooms and the bathroom.

The main bedroom is at the front of the house while the second chamber overlooks the back garden.

They share the three-piece bathroom.

Outside are lawned gardens, the rear with patio, garage, driveway and covered yard/drying area.
