6, Scotby Grange, Carlisle, Cumbria
Penthouse perfection, sitting pretty in the beautifully maintained private grounds of the imposing Scotby Grange development, this beautiful conversion project was completed in 2006 and offers exclusive high end, secure community living in a sought after village with great commuter and location benefits.
This beautiful penthouse, flooded with light and character offers a huge footprint of living space, 208m2 to be exact, which will impress you from the moment you step foot through the front door. Whether you choose to ascend the gorgeous wide sweeping communal oak staircase up to the second floor or take the lift, with a privacy key which delivers you directly into your own hallway is up to you, but won't that make bringing the shopping in a breeze!
The layout of this penthouse flows beautifully. The principal bedroom and its en suite has a wow factor in sheer size and space, the second bedroom is another enormous double and the third could easily be a study if you worked from home and wanted to maintain the open plan living dining space as a work free entertainment zone. The living space has open walkthrough into the dining kitchen and the light in all these spaces with the quirks of the eaves adds an abundance of character throughout.
The property has its own private locked storage room in the cellar, perfect for bicycles and additional storage or better still, a wine collection! Externally you have a grand treelined sweeping driveway setting you way back from the main village road, which encircles the mature communal gardens and tennis court which the property benefits from, with two private allocated parking spaces, plus additional visitor parking available.
