LOCATION The small settlement of Brisco lies just outside the southern boundary of the city and is conveniently placed for access to the M6 motorway. The property sits prominently in the village and is afforded open views and privacy to the rear. Carlisle city centre and its railway station are just 2.5 miles to the north.  

ACCOMMODATION An attractive cottage steeped in history, offering three bedroom, two bathroom accommodation. Once a former posting house and the first stop on the droving trail south from Carlisle, the deep water well is still present in the front garden and it is this former use from which the name of the house is derived. Previously 'The Ship Inn' the house has been given the colloquial name for the old wooden ships which encircled the globe protecting the British Empire, acting as the wooden walls at the furthest outreaches of the Empire. The house is accessed via the front door underneath the date stone showing 1681. A large entrance hall has doors off to the two living rooms, and a bank of folding doors at the rear to the dining room. The kitchen, with a small area to casually dine is of excellent quality. The original mullion windows are present in three of the rooms and further add to the character of the property. There is a bathroom on the ground floor as well as a first floor shower room. The master bedroom has a wonderful light and airy feel, with windows on three sides including one taking in superb views towards the Lakeland Fells. There is a loft area above the garage offering further potential as additional accommodation such as a home office.  

OUTSIDE The superb internal accommodation is enhanced by a wonderful package of garden grounds. There is parking to the front and a garage, but it is the rear garden complete with outdoor heated swimming pool which really makes the property stand out. The garden is split in to a number of sections, some of it with a more wild feel and mature trees and plants and an area of vegetable patch and trees. There is also a patio area from the rear of the property. A small raised paved area sits at the very southern corner of the garden and is open to the rolling countryside view. The heated swimming pool is fenced off, has its own boiler system and thermal cover and has a paved area surrounding it.  

SERVICES Mains water and electricity. Private shared drainage (with one other). Oil fired central heating.
