A quirky Carlisle house, both inside and out, is now on the market for a guide price of £250,000.

The two bedroom home was designed by Black Box architects based at Devonshire Chambers who specialise in unique spaces and and have won design awards for their innovation.

Described in the listing as having a "cool industrial vibe", Thornton Mews has featured in Carlisle Living magazine a number of times and was the feature house in the first edition.

The house on Thornton Road is described as 'reverse living' which is a trend that has become popular in Sweden, Western Australia and much of Scandinavia.

The concept is to swap the living areas, traditionally found on the ground level, with the bedrooms, traditionally found on the upper level, so essentially upside down living.

The property consists of a wonderful light-filled Atrium, two double bedrooms; master with en-suite, bathroom and garage on the ground floor and a contemporary kitchen, living, dining space on the first floor all overlooking the central Atrium.

It current tenants have added to its quirkiness with wonderful décor, tasteful furnishings and high quality fixtures and fittings throughout.

The house is currently adorned with numerous safari animal sculptures, faux fur furnishings and eclectic furniture.

There's even a revolver-themed door handle on the wooden front door next to the intercom.

Continuing on with bold first impressions is the entrance hallway which is light-filled with a rectangular roof window, LED lighting and bespoke flooring made completely with individually laid Penny coins.

It also has tiled skirting and a wooden door leading into a storage cupboard.

Moving on to the atrium, this has clear and opaque vaulted windows in the ceiling which allows sunlight to flood in.

Built-in seating runs along one side of this room with granite tops, tiled flooring and a double fitted cupboard with plumbing for a washing machine and space for a tumble dryer.

Wooden doors lead into the two double bedrooms and the family bathroom.

Bedroom one is a double bedroom overlooking the atrium with a large double glazed window, LED spotlights, fitted wardrobes, carpeted floor, TV point, wooden door into the en-suite shower room.

Bedroom two is also overlooking the atrium with a large double glazed window, LED spotlights, fitted wardrobes, carpeted floor and TV point.

The modern and stylish fully tiled bathroom has a series of "mod cons" with a walk in stone-effect Mira electric shower, MP3 mirror, LED lighting and sound speakers in the ceiling with remote control.

The facilities consist of a white bath with solid marble tiling to the feature wall behind the bath and the shower, white low level WC and a white square handbasin fitted into a vanity unit with white sparkle Corian worktops.

A wrought iron and perspex gate takes you up an oak staircase to the first floor to the open plan living/dining space with two glazed panels overlooking the atrium.

This room boasts oak flooring, three radiators, three UPVC double glazed and sash windows to the front.

A number of LED lighting options help create an ambience in this room with an electric flame effect fire with multi-colour backlight LED options.

The kitchen is also incredibly modern with a range of white gloss/opaque glass fronted base units, solid Acacia wood worktops with black rangemaster one and half sink and grey mixer “spray” tap.

There is also an integrated Teka fridge and integrated Smeg appliances such as an electric oven, halogen hob and a dishwasher.

To the front of the property is the garage with a Hormann solid wood electric up and over garage door with garador fob entry.
