LOCATION In a commanding position within the settlement of Longburgh which itself is nestled between the village of Burgh-by-Sands and the Solway Coast AONB, Beech Bank is well placed for access to a range of amenities, the main road network and a wealth of leisure opportunities. There is a primary school, popular public house and post office within the parish with a full range of services available in Carlisle, which is also served by the West Coast Mainline, offering services to London Euston in a little over three hours and Glasgow/Edinburgh in a little over an hour. The course of Hadrian's Wall, a World Heritage Site, runs nearby and the Lake District National Park is also just a short drive south. The Solway Coast is also a haven for birds and wildlife. The nearby Carlisle Airport now provides passenger services to Belfast, Dublin and London Southend.
ACCOMMODATION Having undergone an extensive programme recently the property is offered in excellent order throughout and has been reconfigured to suit the demands of modern family living. Despite the extensive modernisation many of the period features are retained such as the ornate cornicing, fireplaces and shutters. The open plan kitchen living space benefits from a south and westerly aspect which floods the room with natural light. Dark grey kitchen units sit under contrasting granite worktops and a large central island is home to a Belfast sink. Two further reception rooms occupy the ground floor with the drawing room having a wonderful aspect over the garden grounds. The highlight of the first floor is the outstanding master suite, comprising dressing room with fitted wardrobes and an en-suite shower room. A second en-suite room to the front of the property has a walk in wardrobe and similar southerly aspect to a commanding view. There are three further bedrooms and a stylish family bathroom completing the first floor accommodation.
Externally the gardens, which are predominantly south and west facing, comprise a large expanse of lawn and a smaller orchard to the side. Sandstone gateposts sit at the roadside and flank a driveway with parking area and a gravelled driveway leads around to the front of the house. A rear courtyard is home to a range of outbuildings and stores and also has its own gated access. There is also vehicular access to the paddock from a lane leading off the main road. The attached barn offers further potential to develop and create additional accommodation if desired. This would of course be subject to obtaining the required permission to do so. The stables also provide direct access to the paddock. In addition there is also consent granted for the construction of three stables and a feed room within the paddock (Carlisle Planning ref 16/0999)
