Braeside is a superb cottage situated in the village of Hartley.

Hartley, is a beautiful Cumbrian village situated about 1 mile from the market town of Kirkby Stephen. There are fantastic walks from the doorstep with the Coast to Coast path running through the village. Kirkby Stephen is a short walk from the village. The town has a wide range of shops, pubs & restaurants, primary & secondary schools, medical facilities and weekly outdoor market. It has easy access to the M6 and the A66 trans-Pennine route, as well as rail links via the Settle-Carlisle line. The beauty of the Yorkshire Dales, Eden Valley, Lake District and Teesdale are all within an hour's drive.

Braeside is in an excellent condition, the current owners have carried out extensive work on the property. The roof timbers have been treated, the loft is fully insulated, engineered oak floors have been laid throughout with insulation underneath and the walls have been dry lined. They also installed new electric heating throughout and a multi-fuel stove in the living room.

The ground floor comprises a good size, light kitchen diner with a pantry and a lovely living room with double doors out to the garden. Upstairs, there are two double bedrooms and the house shower room.

Outside is a beautiful, tiered garden running down to a beck. It is mainly lawn, with flower beds and a good range of hedges, shrubs and plants. The top garden also benefits from a patio area which is ideal for sitting out.

There is an outhouse that has been split to create a workshop and a utility area. The utility has power and water, there is space for undercounter white goods and the bonus of a sink and drainer. There is also plenty of space for shoes, coats and still have room for other storage. The other side is currently being used as a workshop and bike store, however, would make a fantastic home office if the need was there.

Braeside would make a fantastic full time home as well as a great second home/ holiday let. Viewing is highly recommended to appreciate the space and location.
