SITUATION AND DESCRIPTION The property is beautifully located within the small settlement of Birkby, between the village of Crosby and the town of Maryport. The property is set back from the main road, accessed via a slip road in front of the green. The property is situated close to the Solway coast, a region designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. There is excellent amenity to hand including Crosscanonby C.of E Primary School, Ofstead rated good. Maryport with its small marina and beautiful Georgian squares, has a superb range of facilities, all of which are just a few minutes travelling distance by car. Cockermouth and the Lake District National Park are all readily accessible, as are Aspatria, Wigton and the regional centre, Carlisle. 

The Laurels is a lovely home with pleasing whitewashed elevations. The accommodation is impressive and includes generous living accommodation which is fit for purpose. The kitchen forms the heart of the home and features a wood burning stove along with a range of modern units. The aspect over the rear garden is private with double doors leading to a generous dining room. The dining room has the benefit of French doors out to the front garden. The sitting room also has the benefit of a cosy wood burning stove and here, double doors open to a delightful garden room which has extensive glazing and beautiful private aspect over the well planted rear garden. The gardens are a particularly special feature of the property having been lovingly created by the current owners to provide many areas of interest, an oasis providing places to sit and enjoy the peace and tranquillity of the surroundings. For those with special interests or hobbies, there is a working area with a greenhouse, vegetable plots and fruit trees, all sitting beside a stable block and hen run. Completing the picture, right at the top of the garden is a large garage/workshop which has access to a rear lane. This generous space is ideal for those interested in bikes, cars, woodworking or metalwork. 

The Laurels represents good value and one not readily available. The combination of a generous home in a pretty setting near the Lakes and coast, along with a large garden and workshop, would suggest that viewing is essential.
