Cotesforth is a character property in the quaint village of Great Asby.

Great Asby has a thriving community with an active village hall and pub. It is only 5 miles from the nearby market town of Appleby with a weekly market, supermarkets, shops, restaurants, and pubs as well as doctor's surgery, and 7 miles from Kirkby Stephen. There are good primary schools at Great Asby and Warcop (4 miles) as well as grammar schools at Appleby & Kirkby Stephen and private schools at Sedbergh and Windermere. The M6 Tebay junction is just 9 miles away and the Lake District, Teesdale & the Yorkshire Dales all within an hours drive. The village has the benefit of high speed broadband.

The property was originally a cottage and adjoining barn and was renovated/converted around 30 years ago and has been occupied by the current vendor since. Cotesforth offers flexible accommodation over two floors, if required the property could again be split to create annexe type accommodation.

On the ground floor there is a spacious entrance hall leading through to a ground floor living room with multi fuel stove. To the rear is a good size study/snug room with access out to the rear garden. There are also two double bedrooms and family bathroom on the ground floor.

Upstairs is a first floor sitting room, large dining kitchen, sun room and a master bedroom suite.

Outside to the front is a pleasant, well maintained garden with gravel, beds and borders, and path leading to the front door. There is ample parking for three to four vehicles and access around to the rear. The rear garden is raised with mature trees and a timber shed. A row of three outbuildings are ideal for utility and fuel storage.

Cotesforth is a great family or active retirement home offering scope for flexible living.
