Enjoying a prominent position on the outskirts of Workington but still within easy access to the main facilities of the town.

On the ground floor there are three reception rooms, shower room and a lovely kitchen with five bedrooms, one with a dressing room and potentially a sixth bedroom, and bathroom on the first floor.
