This week one of our top properties in west Cumbria is this detached house in a small coastal village. 

Located in Sandwith, just south of Whitehaven town centre, the house comes with five bedrooms, two bathrooms and has a guide price of £525,000. 

The property, named Iona, is a detached bungalow with a large detached workshop and two garages. 

It is in the popular hamlet of Sandwith on the edge of Whitehaven set in just over 3.5 acres including two acres of woodland. 

The house has versatile accommodation suited to multi-generational living with three reception rooms.

PFK, Cockermouth, the estate agents, said: "Occupying a slightly elevated position in the pretty hamlet of Sandwith, Iona enjoys commanding fell views to the fore, a fine five-bedroomed detached bungalow offering an incredible lifestyle opportunity for the right buyer.

"It sits within an envious four acre plot (approx.) which includes its own private two-acre woodland of native deciduous trees, planted by the owners over twenty years ago, a one acre (approx) field, and a small orchard.

"The out-buildings include a double garage below the house, a separate detached garage with inspection pit. A large detached barn, with workshop and store adjoining, which could easily be converted to stables.

"There is a large green-house with attached potting shed, and a recently constructed log summer-house – both of which have electrical connection.

"Iona is perfectly suited to a range of buyers including anyone looking for a lock up, business opportunity, or perhaps even those with equestrian interests since the field has a 'green' drive, as well as the separate tarmac drive for vehicular access.

"Peace and seclusion greet the next owners who will find neighbourliness and time to meet in the Dog and Partridge pub and restaurant across the road.

"The property itself offers a most versatile layout and is well suited to multi-generational living, having been adapted in the past, for use by a dependent relative, which would give that person their own self-contained bedroom, living room, bathroom and possibly kitchen facilities if part of the main kitchen were sectioned off."
