SITUATION AND DESCRIPTION Cardew Farmhouse is an appealing Georgian dwelling with whitewashed elevations circa 1719. The situation within the small settlement adjacent to Cardew Lodge is superb. The property has considerable character but would benefit from further modernisation. The living space works well and is generously sized. The sitting room has an oak floor and exposed beams and the fireplace has a cosy wood-burning stove. The low ceilinged hall has exposed beams and pretty cross hatched period windows set the tone for the property. The dining room has a beam and fitted cupboards and like the sitting room enjoys a pleasant private aspect onto the south facing walled garden.  

The farmhouse sized kitchen enjoys good natural light with the provision of windows and doors to the front and rear gardens. It has a quarry tiled floor and a range of fitted units incorporating a two bowl stainless steel sink unit. There is a gas hob, double oven and plumbing for a dishwasher. All the bedrooms are generously sized and are located on the first floor, along with a family bathroom and ensuite shower room. Three of the bedrooms enjoy a southerly aspect. The main bedroom has exposed beams and a large dressing room. The second double bedroom is accessed from the inner landing. Continue along the landing and you enter a smaller bedroom with a southerly aspect which could used in a variety of ways. This room has an ensuite shower room with WC and wash hand basin. Through this room there is a double bedroom which has a triple aspect having windows to the front, side and rear. Built-in wardrobes are incorporated. The fourth double bedroom is at the top of the stairs and has a small window and a large velux skylight. 

The convenience of the location is superb and within a short distance are a wide range of facilities in Dalston village. These include a primary and secondary school, Co-op convenience store and a range of outlets around the village square a butcher, public house, coffee shop, sandwich and fish and chip shop. The regional capital, Carlisle, has an extensive range of social, leisure and retail opportunities and has the benefit of being on the West Coast Mainline with direct services to London in around 3 hours 20 minutes.  

Beautiful, well planted gardens complement the property. There are various herbaceous borders and shrubberies. The front facing walled lawned garden is of a good size and has iron railings and gate for pedestrian access from the lane. The rear lawned garden is also well planted with a patio area, raised vegetable plots and a greenhouse. The former garage is now utilised as a studio and from here there is access into a lean-to greenhouse on the gable end. This gives way to an area with fruit trees and additional raised vegetable plots.
