WHY CUMWHITTON? Prominently situated at the entrance to the lovely village of Cumwhitton, on an elevated corner plot with superb views, Violet Bank is an impressive, beautifully renovated home in a fantastic garden. The village has an active social community, a good pub serving food and a playground. There are monthly coffee mornings at the village hall and there is a regular village newsletter. The location is peaceful, yet remains very accessible for a wide range of local amenities, including shops, Post Office and Dr's surgery. There are also three 18 hole golf courses within a short drive. Halfway between Carlisle and the lovely market town of Brampton, Cumwhitton is at the northern end of the Eden Valley and on the doorstep of the North Pennines AONB. The main road and rail networks are close to hand with good access to the A69, M6, west coast main line and trains from Carlisle to Newcastle. Other areas of natural and historic interest are readily accessible, including the Lake District National Park and Hadrian's Wall world heritage site.


ACCOMMODATION The internal accommodation has been fully renovated to a high standard by the current owners and provides excellent living space, full of character. The spacious dining kitchen is open to a garden room, with multi-fuel stove and patio doors to the garden and countryside views. The tiled floor benefits from mains driven underfloor heating and the kitchen units, complete with soft close doors, sit under a dark granite worktop. The range cooker sits under an imposing sandstone lintel. A good size utility room and cloakroom W.C. lead off the kitchen. Two good reception rooms sit either side of the stairs with both having restored wooden floors. The sitting room has the benefit of an open fire and the living room, which could also be used as a formal dining room has a dual aspect and a wood burning stove. To the first floor are three double bedrooms, the master has an en-suite shower room and the family bathroom is generously proportioned having both a freestanding roll top bath and large corner shower, with both also having electric under floor heating. Further potential exists to develop the large attic space if desired. Accessed via a loft ladder there is already light, power and heating in place making the conversion to a habitable room a more straight forward process.  

OUTSIDE Set within a large garden site of close to 0.4 acres in an elevated position affording the property good views across the adjacent countryside. There is an area of parking to the side of the property with a double storey detached byre at the rear which has the benefit of power and water. Attached to this is a generous single storey potting shed with double glazed windows, power and water. The garden has an area of lawn and the bank sloping away towards the road is planted with a variety of wild flowers giving colour throughout the seasons. A walled garden leads through to a detached stone former garage, which with some investment could provide a useful workshop, home office or outside entertaining space. The walled garden leads through to a small orchard an area of woodland and vegetable plot.
