LOCATION Outstanding position just a few steps from the waterfront and Hadrian's Wall Path National Trail on the Solway Firth estuary separating England and Scotland. Bowness on Solway is where Hadrian's Wall ends (or starts!) and it is also well known for its prolific bird life including migrating birds. The sand dunes, salt marsh, shingle beds, and peat mosses make it a favourite spot with a number of species. It is a mecca for bird watchers and popular with walkers and cyclist. There is good local amenity including buses serving Carlisle, a pub and other facilities catering for locals and tourists. The 12th century St Michael's Church (restored in 1891) sits on what is thought to be one of the Roman fort's buildings, possibly a granary. The structure, like that of many of the village houses, includes stones taken from Hadrian's wall. The surrounding coast and countryside is peaceful. There is convenient access for Carlisle, the M6, Lake District and the West Cumbrian Coast.

 

DESCRIPTION Hesket House is a lovely home retaining characterful accommodation over three floors including an impressive loft conversion with exposed beams. This has created an attractive bedroom which enjoys sea views and has the benefit of an ensuite shower room. There are three good bedrooms on the first floor along with the family bathroom which features a freestanding roll top bath. The living space does not disappoint either. The charming reception room is double width providing space for living and dinning. The living end has an open fireplace for cosy nights in and the chimney side recesses are filled with bookshelves. The breakfast area leads into the kitchen which has light oak units and sleek granite worktops. There is potential to extend (subject to planning) at the side and out towards the garden. The utility room as an old range and chimney side cupboards. 

OUTSIDE The garden is a rather special place and indeed an oasis of calm located on the waterfront. They are beautifully planted with several areas of interest including water features and a poly tunnel. A pergola with power provides a splendid private space for alfresco dining. A little wooden door in the hedge opens to the foreshore and steps access the beach. The sunsets are glorious.
