Full description

For sale as a whole or possibly in two lots, Criccieth is a fascinating early 18th century former farmhouse of immense character (proper inglenook fireplace, exposed beams, fireplaces etc) providing three reception rooms and three bedrooms and requiring some further finishing off and improvement work but with obvious potential to create a delightful country retreat.
Adjoining the main house is a substantial traditional barn with detailed planning consent for conversion into a fine three bedroomed residence, carefully designed to incorporate the inherent character of the original building. Outside are forecourt, farmhouse garden and, behind the barn, a long triangular strip of ground ideal as formal or informal gardens, even for the creation of a small paddock if required.
We would estimate that the whole site extends to approximately 0.8 acre.
Woodhouses is a tiny hamlet just a mile from the main road roundabout at Thursby (see directions as follows) barely five miles west of Carlisle City Centre and around 4.5 miles east of Wigton. Thursby caters well for everyday needs with shop/post office, primary school, handsome church, public house and village hall, Carlisle and Wigton providing the usual sports facilities, railway stations, supermarkets, hospitals, etc. The new city bypass gives good access to the north and the M6 is within easy reach at both junctions 42 and 44.
