Garden and Grounds
You would hardly realise you were on the edge of a bustling and thriving town, as Aikrigg End feels so tranquil. Set in 0.62 acres the garden with riverside access and detached garages for all your gardening equipment, is something to marvel at.
Each area of the garden feels like its own separate space with individual uses, yet flows nicely through the three areas. The front drive and garden are finished with a stunning water feature, adorned with flowers, that takes centre stage of the turning circle in front of the charming home. Admire the purple hues of the Wisteria that climbs the white rendered walls.

Hedges to the front provide privacy and seclusion to the house and garden. To the rear of the home isa small walled courtyard ideal for hanging out the washing. From here you can take steps up to the lawn of the driveway, or down into the main garden, ensuring easy access around the whole site.

A short flight of stone steps flanked by a manicured curved lawn leads down to the extensive lower lawn, where countless possibilities await.

With original Lakeland stone walls to the front and stunning River Kent laid out before you it feels calm, suburban and natural, yet safe and secure with bordering fencing. Apple and plum trees stand proudly alongside the natural planting of mature shrubs, trees and evergreens.

For the green fingered then this blank canvas could house greenhouse, vegetable patch, children's play area and more.

Walk across the lawn and discover your very own jetty where riverside access and fishing rights await you. Spend weekends and summer evenings enjoying the cool waters, perhaps with a dingy or some cold-water swimming if you aren't faint of heart.

Guests, of the annexes', and the new owners of Aikrigg End, will be spoilt for choice with what adventures they will take on.
