1 North Road is a deceptively spacious home within walking distance of the Kirkby Stephen town centre. Kirkby Stephen is only 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 the town. 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. The property itself dates back to the 17th Century and retains many original character features and has been in the family for almost 20 years. There have been many improvements over the years, and more recently, the owner has completed works including landscaping, replacement windows, new kitchen and upgrades throughout. The property also benefits from having gas central heating throughout.Internally the property offers spacious accommodation over two floors. On the ground floor is an entrance porch leading through to an open plan dining kitchen and a utility room. There is a ground floor shower room, pantry and large sitting room. Upstairs is a large family bathroom and four bedrooms, three doubles and a single. To the rear of the property is a patio leading up to a private garden with mature established shrubs, an apple tree and garden shed.
