196B Annan  Road,

This unique detached property has been built with privacy and seclusion in mind while still being close to town and local amenities. The garden follows the contours of the house giving sunshine throughout the day and allowing for outdoor living and a variety of different seating arrangements in complete privacy. There is ample space for eating outdoors and making barbecues, and also for growing flowers, plants and vegetables outside or in the well-positioned greenhouse. The garden is laid in patios and in decking so that it can be enjoyed with minimal maintenance while still enjoying the greenery of the hedges and trees surrounding it. These are a haven for bees and birds and there are several nests that will need to be avoided when they are trimmed. The driveway provides off street parking for two cars and is secured by a large and attractive wooden gate. Inside the house every detail has been carefully designed to give character, style and modern comfort, from the hand-made wooden flooring, beams and hand-crafted ash staircase to the beautifully built brick fireplace and the stylish and practical kitchen and bathroom. The double-glazed windows and hand-made doors are made from cedar wood, giving both character and good insulation and the whole house benefits from high density roof and floor insulation, keeping heating bills to a minimum. Beneath the house there is a very generously proportioned basement, currently used as a workshop for furniture restoration, a laundry and a wine-cellar, it being the perfect temperature and conditions for wine storage. This would be an ideal space as a games or hobby room and has great potential (subject to building regulations) for its conversion into a dining room, kitchen, laundry and additional living space. Despite its seclusion this property is well-placed amongst the local amenities of the highly-regarded Noblehill Primary School, bus routes into town and to Carlisle and to the local supermarket, Aldi, giving instant access to its excellent range of cheeses, hams and wines without the need to drive into the town centre. This delightful property it offered for sale at offers around 160,000 with immediate availability and gives its new owner the opportunity to live in an easily maintained modern house full of character and charm, close to town but with scope to live and to entertain in seclusion and style.
