Allonby, Maryport

Guide price

Bedrooms: 4
Just look at those views and imagine the sun rising at the back over Skiddaw and setting at the front over the Solway Firth and the Scottish Fells. No better place to bring up a family or settle for a relaxing life in a delightful village location with easy access to open spaces, good schools and the Lake District town of Keswick about half an hour away. This impressive 4 bedroom house has 2 good size reception rooms, kitchen/diner, utility room, 2 bathrooms and a downstairs cloakroom. The large windows allow an abundance of natural light and uninterrupted views to Scotland. With a good size mature garden at the back and a large lawned area to the front a viewing is highly recommended for this unique property which is also offered chain free


Living in Allonby has meant walks along the beach, uninterrupted views of Scotland and the Isle of Man and spectacular sunsets. Sitting at the end of the day on the bench at the front with a glass of wine watching an unexpected sunset, or sitting cosy indoors watching stormy skies and fearless windsurfers. We have been lucky to enjoy this for nearly 30 years but we have made the decision to move nearer to our children who spread their wings some years ago. We will miss Allonby so much .
