Prospect House is a superb property set in the centre of the bustling market town of Kirkby Stephen.

Kirkby Stephen is just ten miles from junction 38 of the M6 motorway and is well placed for Kendal, Penrith, Appleby and the Lake District. The scenic Settle to Carlisle Railway is on the doorstep and the Coast to Coast and Lady Ann footpaths run through. Kirkby Stephen has highly regarded primary and grammar schools as well as a good range of shops, restaurants & pubs, church & chapel and doctor's surgery. There is still a weekly outdoor market and an agricultural auction mart.

Prospect House is a traditional period property with high ceilings, deep skirting boards and beautiful character features including coving, cornicing and plate racks. The property offers spacious accommodation with potential to further develop.

On the ground floor the entrance hall leads to a sitting room with bay window and a family sized dining kitchen which is open to another, front reception room. There is a rear hall with turned staircase and utility/ cloakroom. Upstairs are three bedrooms, two large doubles and a single room and a family bathroom. There is a large loft with good head room should any one which to increase accommodation by converting this space.

Outside, to the rear is large, South facing garden. Steps from the paved patio lead to a lawn with mature borders and a gravel seating area. To the side is a passage way leading from the street, sole use of Prospect House.

The Cott is a detached, stone built outbuilding (believed to have been a dwelling until 1940's). In the past this has been used as a workshop and garden store but would make an ideal studio or AirBnB type accommodation. To the rear of The Cott is another garden area. The Cott has recently been stripped back, the timbers have been treated and have been replaced where necessary.

A detached garage is located within walking distance of Prospect House, this is available by separate negotiation.

Prospect House is in need of some modernisation works, the current seller has stripped the property back and has treated all timbers. The property is now ready for the next owner to enjoy putting their own stamp on in with decorations, fixtures and fittings.

It's an ideal project and would be a great family or active retirement home with business/ income potential.
