Full description

Tenure: Freehold

An outstanding individually designed four/seven bedroomed detached house in a quiet residential location yet within walking distance of the centre of the Georgian gem town of Cockermouth.

Built for the present owners in 1998 with a great deal of thought given to aesthetics and to incorporating a wealth of labour and economy saving devices, adding to the comfort and ease of living and the reduction of running costs and maintenance. These very briefly include:

(1) Roof mounted solar thermal and solar photovoltaic renewable energy systems providing a good degree of domestic hot water and electricity. Low energy LED and CFL light bulbs throughout.
(2) Built-in heat recovery ventilation system providing fresh air without heat loss.
(3) Integral central vacuum system with inlets throughout the home, including an innovative kick plate 'dust pan' to the kitchen.
(4) Hipped roof and directly fixed rainwater gutters eliminating the need for soffits or barge boards thus reducing maintenance.
(5) Feature brickwork to elevations reducing the rendered areas to more manageable size, assisting painting/maintenance further.
(6) Thermal efficient insulation and under-floor heating giving a good EPC rating and reducing running costs.

The flexible accommodation is presented to the highest standard and is currently configured as a four bedroomed family home but could equally provide up to seven bedrooms, all of a good size, or lend itself to the modern trend for multi-generational living.

Currently the property boasts stunning double height galleried dining hallway with French doors, lounge, dining kitchen with central island, separate well fitted utility room, study/bedroom 5, ground floor shower room, craft/hobby room, attached double garage, spacious master suite comprising bedroom, fitted dressing room and spacious en-suite, three further first floor bedrooms (all having wash hand basins) and well fitted family bathroom.
