Property Summary - Ref: greenriggcm1

House Network are pleased to offer this 4 bedroom detached house for sale. The property briefly comprises kitchen, sitting room, bathroom, utility, sun porch, lounge, 4 bedrooms, and en-suite. The house covers approximately 1,735sqft. The roof supports photo-voltaic solar panels (which return approx. £700 p.a. index-linked income), and water-heating panels. There is fast 4G Broadband (30mbps), connectivity.

At first sight, the house appears to be an old solid stone farmhouse, but was built in the '90s, of modern construction, with cavity walls and other energy efficient features.

Originally used as an easily accessible second home, its simple, efficient and economical Economy 7 heating keeps the house warm and cosy 24/7, and can be left unattended during absences.

Outside, there is a garage, several sheds, a greenhouse, and excellent parking for multiple cars/motorhomes/trailers. The grounds have been landscaped to create easily-maintained, but varied, garden areas, including orchard, wildflower meadow, and patio. Mains electricity (supported by P.V. solar panels), mains water, private drainage.

The property has been maintained to a very high standard and is in excellent condition throughout.

Though truly peaceful and rural, the location has easy access to the M6 and other major routes, and offers life in a well-serviced rural community, providing schools, local shops, post-office and pub. The local countryside is very beautiful, with large tracts of Open Access Land, providing considerable scope for walking, horse-riding, and other outdoor activities. The Coast to Coast walking route passes through Orton and Raisbeck, and both are also on a National Cycle Route.
