Full of charm, character and individuality, Shire House is a delightful three bedroom, two bathroom, detached property situated in a very tranquil location in this glorious part of the Eden Valley.
Perfectly proportioned, this detached house sits proudly on an elevated site within walking distance of the village. Ousby itself is a small village surrounded by countryside. It has a well regarded local pub, the Fox Inn, a campsite and a church. There is also a strong community spirit. Winskill, with its open air swimming pool is only a couple of minutes away and Langwathby, where you'll find a convenience store and primary school is close by. The property is also in catchment for the highly regarded Queen Elizabeth grammar school in Penrith.
The accommodation has a particularly "homely" feel and this is evident on walking through the front door.
You are greeted by a fantastic kitchen/diner with a roaring multi fuel stove at one end and an Aga creating that special homely feel at the other. The kitchen is brilliantly set up for spending time with family and friends and the link between the gardens and the house is seamless. Just open the stable door on a summers day and listen to the birds! From the kitchen you enter the living room, again with a fabulous stove. This room has a very cosy feel and you can imagine yourself in here in the winter months. There is also a cloakroom/WC on the ground floor.
On the first floor there are three bedrooms with both front facing double bedrooms being flooded with light and also enjoying wonderful outlooks to the surrounding countryside. The two double bedrooms enjoy the use of a very well appointed "Jack & Jill" bathroom and the third bedroom has its own en-suite shower room.
Outside this property will continue to charm you. The gardens are a delight. Brilliantly set out, with a range of plants, flowers, trees and bushes, you could spend hours sitting outside of the patio taking stock.
