SITUATION AND DESCRIPTION Strathmuir is well located just beyond the fringe of the village enjoying good access to the main road network, convenient for the M6 motorway and the A689 for Brampton and the A69 for Newcastle. Nearby amenity includes within the village a bistro, farm shop, primary school and shop with post office. Houghton Hall Garden Centre and food hall is just a five minute walk. Central Carlisle, with a generous range of social, leisure and retail opportunities is within a short travelling distance.  

Strathmuir has considerable presence and is set back from the road with an attractive approach. The property sits beautifully within its own large one acre grounds with a private and open aspect and views from the first floor. The accommodation is presented in a traditional four square layout, the focal point of entry being the impressive hall and staircase. The fine living space has considerable character. The sitting room provides a delightful reception space with orientation to the south and west. Tall sash windows with shutters provide good natural light. The room features a timber floor sandstone fireplace with wood-burning stove. The wonderful dining room has a lovely feel with tall sash windows to the east and south within a wide bay window. The aspect is private. A timber floor enhances the character as does the sandstone fireplace with cosy wood-burning stove. The breakfast kitchen has ample dining space, the centre piece being a four oven Aga within the chimney recess. The property also has the benefit of a useful sized utility room and pantry.  

The generous first floor accommodation extends to 1760 sq ft and provides four good double bedrooms. The large family bathroom has a contemporary suite including a freestanding bath and large shower cubicle. A separate shower room with WC and wash hand basin completes the picture.  

Strathmuir is a rare package and one that combines a generous detached family home with double garage and one acre garden. Of added interest is the detached former coach-house which offers a variety of potential subject to planning. In short a fine home in an accessible location and one where viewing is strongly advised.
