Lowther Cottage is a beautiful Grade II Listed, 2-bedroom barn conversion in Hilton. Hilton is a small village, set around a large green in Cumbria, about 3 miles from Appleby which is a historic market town within the Eden Valley.

Appleby has numerous shops, pubs and cafes and has an active community with primary and grammar schools, Church and various clubs and groups. There is a local bus route offering services to both the towns of Appleby and Penrith. There are great walks and wonderful views all around.

The property is immaculately presented and has modern fixtures and fittings. The accommodation is light and offers a large kitchen diner opening to the living area, which has a stone surround fireplace and a door which leads to the patio and garden. There is also a useful utility room and a downstairs WC. Upstairs there are 2 large double bedrooms, both with en-suite bathrooms.

The property is heated by oil central heating, and a water based underfloor heating system, all controlled by remote thermostats. There are mains electric and water to the property, and a communal septic tank for sewerage.

Externally, there is a suntrap south facing patio area and garden with a stone wall boundary. Off road parking for two cars and gated access from the main road into a private courtyard.

Lowther Cottage has a restrictive covenant on the property preventing its use as a short-term holiday let, however it would make a perfect starter home, retirement or private second home.
