WHY HETHERSGILL? The small village of Hethersgill is nestled in rolling countryside between Brampton and Longtown, whilst also remaining readily accessible for Carlisle and the M6/M74 motorways. The village is also home to a Pub, church and village hall, with a full range of amenities being found in both Brampton and Longtown. The nearby village of Smithfield has a primary school and the well regarded William Howard secondary school can be found in Brampton.  

ACCOMMODATION The beautifully balanced four square living accommodation has undergone a thorough programme of restoration and renovation. The Grade II listed property is accessed via an impressive original eight panel front door in to a wide hallway retaining some original exposed stone walls. Either side of the hallway are two reception rooms which have been complimented by the addition of half height wood panelling. Both rooms have open fires and the dining room benefits from the original wooden shutters on the windows. To the rear of the property is a good size kitchen, complete with Belfast sink and a breakfast bar as well as having views over the garden. There is also a large utility/boot room with stable door to the rear, exposed stone walls and a door providing internal access to the heated side garage. There is a useful W.C. under the stairs, which have a large picture window on the half landing. To the first floor there are four good size double bedrooms, with two having retained feature fireplaces. The bathroom is generously proportioned and has been modernised whilst retaining a more period feel with a large freestanding roll top bath complete with mixer shower attachment. As impressive as the interior is, it is externally where the property comes in to its own. The rear garden is stepped upwards away from the property towards the almost 2 acre paddock. The paved side driveway provides vehicular access up the side of the garden to a five bar gate on to the land. The rear part of the garden is at the same level as the paddock and has potential for stabling to be erected, subject to obtaining planning permission, if so desired. The paddock extends away from the property to the rear and is mostly level rough grazing, with a small orchard at the near end and a large pond surrounded by trees at the rear creating a peaceful hideaway which feels much further removed from the property than it actually is. The property provides an excellent small scale equestrian opportunity or indeed for those wishing to keep other livestock.
