LOCATION The small settlement of Rickerby is surrounded by parkland, yet just a 2 mile drive or 1.5 mile walk from the city centre. Avalon is a tucked away and ideally placed to take advantage of all the surrounding area has to offer. Adjacent Rickerby Park provides picturesque riverside walks and access on foot to the city. The nearby Rickerby Retreat has a health spa with pool and restaurant. Stanwix provides an excellent range of amenities within easy reach, with the city centre just a little further beyond. Carlisle, the region's capital, has a superb range of social, leisure and retail opportunities. There is an attractive central pedestrianised area and an impressive cathedral and castle. The city has a good café culture and benefits from being on the West Coast mainline serving London directly in around 3 hours 20 minutes and non-stop to Glasgow. The city's central railway station serves many other destinations including the Lake District, West Cumbria, Edinburgh, Newcastle, Manchester, Manchester Airport and Birmingham.
DESCRIPTION Avalon provides a wonderful opportunity having loads of potential to upgrade, improve and extend to create a fine contemporary home. The large private site ensures that investment will reward. Accessed from a side road, the long drive provides a fitting approach to an area of parking. The sense of privacy is immediate. The property extends to around 1,800 sq. feet including the garage however as mentioned there is scope to enlarge and alter. The accommodation flows well from the vestibule and hall into a generous sitting room with fireplace and dining room. Both rooms enjoy a private south facing aspect ensuring good natural light. The dining room has access to the garden. The fitted kitchen is also a bright space having windows to the south and east.
Three of the first floor double bedrooms are south facing and enjoy rural views. The forth double bedroom has a shower cubicle and hand basin. The family bathroom completes the picture.
Of interest the property has current planning permission reference 20/0310 for a generous extension to provide annexe accommodation linked to the house via a single story car port.
OUTSIDE The generous mature gardens are a real asset and rather rare in the market place. There are large expanses of lawn and areas to enjoy the peace and tranquillity of the surroundings. Of special interest is the building plot with planning permission.
