Full description

A delightful 2 bedroomed cottage forming part of one of the town's most attractive terraces and situated in the sought after Station Hill area of Wigton barely a mile from the town centre.

Dating from circa1864 the house was formerly a traditional two up-two down cottage but a good extension has been added in more recent years to provide an attractive kitchen and bedroom above. The original ground floor rooms form a large sitting room with ample dining space if required and above are the original front bedroom and what is now a bathroom. There are gas fired central heating and UPVC sealed unit double glazing.

A significant selling feature of the cottage is the garden which, although separate to the property, is double the size of the others in the terrace. The pretty summer house, providing an additional garden room, is included in the sale.

Sevenoaks Terrace lies at the western end of Cross Lane close to Wigton Hospital, Station Hill, just behind, leads down to the by-pass and then the railway station and town centre, with its excellent range of day-to-day facilities, beyond. On the south side of town are Nelson Thomlinson Secondary School, the rugby, cricket and squash clubs and the swimming baths. For those needing to commute, Carlisle to the east and Cockermouth with the more industrial centres of West Cumbria beyond are all within comfortable driving distance.

The vendors purchased the cottage in 2008 since when considerable improvement work has been undertaken - the present reception room has been created from 2 smaller rooms, the fireplace and stove installed, the kitchen has been refitted, new boiler and shower fitted, carpets laid and complete redecoration carried out. The garden has also been relandscaped. Overall, an inspection is thoroughly recommended.
