Property Description

Step inside this stunning former railway station, with its historical background, and just try to imagine how it was to have the sounds and smells of a steam train passing through the sandstone platforms, one of which still remains in the back garden, running the full length of the property. The current owner has sympathetically restored this detached property to a tasteful modern day standard, with light, airy spacious accommodation over two floors. The ground floor has a large living room with welcoming wood burner, perfect to sit and relax in front of whilst enjoying a movie on the large screen TV. Just off the living area is a bunk bedroom, which is handy for you to keep an eye on youngsters at bedtime whilst the grown ups enjoy their evening. The property has many original features, which can be seen in the dining room especially, which has an exposed sandstone wall. The well-fitted kitchen has granite work tops, a central island and a large American-style fridge to keep your drinks cool. Patio doors open out onto a paved patio area and the extensive enclosed garden, where you can keep careful watch on children or dogs as they play outside. A further twin bedrooom, family bathroom and separate toilet are also found on this level. Take the staircase to the first floor, and you will reach the master bedroom which has inset floor lights making a feature of the sandstone walls and vaulted ceiling. It also has a dressing area with and en-suite shower room – just another example of the space this property provides. Across the hallway is a further kingsize bedroom.
Outside, the well-kept pathways, grounds and sandstone water feature provide an ideal area to sit and relax in, but should you choose to venture a little further, the local village pub is just a few minutes’ walk, and offers home cooked food and excellent ales. The surrounding area is perfect for all, and families of any age can enjoy a day out at Muncaster Castle. A ride on the Ravenglass & Eskdale Railway is a must, and you can spend the day enjoying the various walks at the numerous stops it passes through. Nearby St Bees beach is a lengthy stretch of open sand, whilst Wasdale and Wastwater offers some of Lakeland’s finest views and walks. Beach 1¼ miles. Shop 2½ miles, pub and restaurant ½ mile.

This characterful former station house retains sandstone walls and a vaulted ceiling and is just over a mile from the beach.
