Full description

24 Longtwaite Road is reputed to be one of Wigton's oldest properties and still retains many features of a Cumbrian long house. This is now a spacious, two bedroomed semi-detached cottage still with original features and yet modernised in a tasteful and complimentary style.

Set back from Longthwaite Road in what has always been one of Wigton's most popular locations the cottage is handily located for the medical centre, primary and Nelson Thomlinson secondary schools, a mini market and petrol station. In the opposite direction a few minutes' walk away the road leads to open countryside. The town centre is just over half a mile away, catering well for everyday needs, and also on hand are the rugby, cricket and squash clubs and swimming baths. Wigton also offers regular bus and rail services and Carlisle to the east and Cockermouth (with the more industrial centres of West Cumbria beyond) are both within comfortable driving distance. The Lake District National Park is just 8 miles to the south, Caldbeck and the Solway Coast are within 20 minutes' drive to the north and west.

Much refurbishment has been undertaken over the last 20 years with new double glazing, floors, combi central heating boiler, chimney lining, multi-fuel stove, and some rewiring and new joinery. The bath/shower room was also refitted and, just recently, an attractive kitchen has been installed with new and unused dishwasher and range-style cooker positioned below the original fireplace lintel. Overall, this is a delightful and indeed easily run cottage of great style and low maintenance and an inspection is thoroughly recommended.
