WHY SCOTBY Scotby is a very popular and village just east of Carlisle. The village has lots to offer with good amenity including a church, village hall and COE Primary School which is a few minutes walk. The village shop, post office and public house all overlook the green. Scotby is an active village with a strong community spirit with the opportunity to participate in a variety of activities throughout the year. From a communications point of view the convenience of the location is hard to beat. Easy access to the main road network cuts travelling time and in particular the A69 and M6 at Junction 43 are just minutes away. Those wishing to socialise or in need of retail therapy will not be disappointed. The wide range of amenities and services available in Central Carlisle are less than four miles away as is the station which serves London in around three hours twenty minutes. Many other centres are catered for including Glasgow, Edinburgh, the Lake District, Manchester Airport, Newcastle and Penrith. 

The settlement of Scotby Grange is rather special and indeed rare in the city. It is a gated community set on the fringe of the village in acreage which includes two acres of parkland. The tone is set as you enter the private drive and continue past the tennis court and around in front of the grand original building to the rear close of modern houses. Number 13 benefits from an excellent position being the last property on the left and enjoying elevated panoramic views. 

The property has been beautifully maintained and is well presented throughout. The accommodation is versatile and comprehensive over three floors and is ready to occupy. The fitted kitchen has sleek granite worktops and a range of appliances. It opens into a dining or living area with French doors out to the rear and view. Of particular interest and more than just a gimmick is the dumb waiter! Our clients use this on a regular basis to transport all manor of things from the kitchen to the first floor landing. The large sitting room has a dual aspect and includes a balcony. The master bedroom located on the top floor is an excellent affair. It is generous in size and benefits from good natural light and like all the bedrooms, big views. It has a dressing area and ensuite shower room. 

The property has a range of features and benefits which aid modern living. The garage has a remote controlled roller door. A sound system accesses speakers in the sitting room, kitchen/diner, master bedroom and ensuite. Dual towel radiators come in handy out of season. In short a fine home in a good village.
