LOCATION Situated just a short distance to the west of Carlisle, less than a mile from the centre of Kirkbampton, in between the Solway Coast AONB and the Lake District National Park and close to the path of Hadrian's Wall, Midtown Farm is superbly placed to enjoy the very best that the region has to offer. The property has the benefit of far reaching views north across the Solway to Scotland and a peaceful rural situation, yet remains readily accessible for the main road network with the Carlisle by-pass giving fast access to the M6 motorway. The village of Kirkbampton has a primary school, with further amenities being accessible in Carlisle and Wigton as well as some of the larger outlying villages nearby. Carlisle has a station on the West Coast mainline with services to London Euston in just over three hours and Glasgow/Edinburgh in a little over an hour. Carlisle Airport also currently offers flights to Belfast, Dublin and London Southend. 

ACCOMMODATION The internal accommodation has been extensively renovated and modernised by the current owners to create a superb home full of character and retaining many original features. Some of the windows are of the wooden sliding sash variety and the some are double glazed and have wooden shutters. A large hallway with original stone flagged floor provides access to the living space and the stairs to the first floor. The breakfast kitchen, also with original stone flagged floor, blends a more traditional style kitchen with contemporary touches and is offered with a range of integrated appliances and a double Belfast style sink. The sitting room has a tiled floor and a multi-fuel burner sits in a stone surround with shelving to either side. A large living room has an open fire and the current owners utilise the rear of the room for additional dining space. A utility room is accessed from the courtyard. On the first floor are four large double bedrooms, with the master having the benefit of an en-suite shower room. The family bathroom has both a bath and walk-in shower and the size of the other bedrooms offers the potential to add additional en-suite bathrooms if so desired.  

OUTSIDE Set around a gravelled courtyard the house, open-garage, walled garden, barn and bothy combine to create a wonderful private setting. The detached barn has the benefit of light and power and has the potential through development to provide secondary accommodation, subject to obtaining the necessary permissions. A single story open wood store links the barn to the attractive bothy, which has the benefit of light, power and water, which again could be utilised as secondary accommodation and potentially linked to the barn via the wood store to create a larger unit. The potential then exists to capitalise on the passing Hadrian's Wall tourist trade and those in the area to take in the Solway's excellent birdlife. The excellent proportions of the main house also make it suitable to run a small Bed & Breakfast. The private walled garden is gated to the courtyard and is currently low maintenance, but could easily be reinstated to an area of lawn should the buyer so wish.
