Criffel Cottage is a delightful detached bungalow sitting within attractive gardens and with views towards the landmark hill of Criffel and the Solway.

It is beautifully presented throughout with a loft offering conversion potential.

The cottage has an open-fronted porch containing a door with matching side screen into the entrance hall which has a dado rail, built-in double cloaks cupboard and a door to the inner hall.

The dado rail continues here and the space also has a wide hatch with ladder to the part-boarded loft that is ripe for alternative use.

A door leads to the dining kitchen with the good-sized dining area to the front of the property.

The kitchen has an excellent array of Shaker-style oak units with complementary work surfaces and slate effect tiled splashbacks.

There are integrated appliances of eye-level double oven, four-burner gas hob and stainless steel extractor canopy in addition to a dishwasher.

The adjacent utility porch has a further range of wall and floor with plumbing for a washing machine and a window overlooking the side garden.

The spacious sitting room is bright and airy, warmed by a Clearview wood-burning stove on a slate hearth with oak mantle above and quality oak-effect laminate flooring.

A window provides a view of the side garden and a patio door leads to the rear terrace. This area offers further conversion potential, this time for a conservatory.

There are three bedrooms, the master en-suite with a built-in double wardrobe and overhead storage, the other two doubles sharing the four-piece bathroom which boasts a double-ended Victorian-style bath, panelling to dado height and a large corner shower cubicle

Outside, the front garden has three lawned sections, a gravelled driveway providing ample parking and turning spaces, borders, mature trees and wrought-iron double entrance gates mounted on painted brick pillars.

The back garden has a flagged patio terrace, shed, fencing and courtyard area. The exterior is completed by a double garage with shelving, boarded loft space and an enclosed store room.
