  • Bedrooms: 4
A striking conversion of a traditional red brick barn now providing an exceptionally appointed detached residence with two reception rooms, fabulous family kitchen, utility room, cloakroom, four bedrooms (two with en-suite facilities) and family bathroom. Shared private driveway, flagged terrace/patio, garden ground, a double garage and an adjoining field of approximately 2.7 acres – in all, it is estimated that the property extends to around 3.1 acres.

Planning permission for a further garage/garden room was granted in 2010 but this has now lapsed.

The property stands in the delightful countryside 6 miles south west of Carlisle and within 2 miles of Dalston, one of the area’s most sought after dormitory villages.

Dalston provides primary and secondary schools, general shops, post office, Inns, community hall and Parish church, bus and rail connections to Carlisle, and the M6 and the city’s northwest bypass are both easily accessible. The National park is just 5 miles away at Caldbeck.
