  • Bedrooms: 4
INTRODUCTION With open views to the rear and a generous plot, this deceptive detached house has the potential to be an excellent family home. Requiring modernisation throughout, the property dates back to the 1930s and has been in the same family for over 40 years with many original features retained. On the fringes of Kendal/Oxenholme, the property is well positioned for Oxenholme Station, the main A65 and Westmorland General Hospital. Larger than expected, there are two ground floor reception rooms, with the sitting room having a lovely outlook, along with a ground floor bedroom. To the first floor are three further bedrooms - two with built in storage. The plot has ample parking and turning, a garage and store. The front garden has a formal feel with the rear being semi divided to provide vegetable patches and a sloping orchard. Available with no onward chain, an internal viewing is recommended.

Oxenholme is situated on the southern fringes of Kendal and is on a regular bus route. The Mainline Train Station at Oxenholme is minutes away on foot and has links to Kendal and Windermere Station as well as London Euston & Glasgow. J36 and J37 of the M6 motorway are only a short drive away and the local primary schools are situated at Natland village or a short distance away in Kendal, the nearest being Heron Hill. Kirkbie Kendal secondary school is closeby.
