Full description

Tenure: Freehold

An attractive double fronted three bedroomed cottage located in the highly sought after village of Gosforth in the Lake District National Park. This stunning property has been refurbished by the present owners to create a characterful home with well appointed accommodation and contemporary styling.

In brief, the accommodation comprises entrance porch, lounge, dining room, modern kitchen, three good sized bedrooms and family bathroom. Externally, the property benefits from off road parking and generous gardens. A detached two storey stone built outbuilding is the perfect accompaniment to this charming property and has undergone some significant works of late, the upper level is now fully functional serving as an ideal studio or home office, with the remaining part of the outbuildings offering considerable potential to create a self contained annexe (subject to the necessary permissions being obtained).

Located in the National Park and very sensibly priced, Beck Place would make an ideal family home and is equally suited to couples and for retirement. Early viewing is encouraged.

The village of Gosforth is situated in the Lake District National Park, a short distance from the coast and beaches of Seascale and the gateway to the beautiful valleys of Wasdale and Eskdale. The village itself has a good range of amenities including shops, restaurants, primary school and services. It is also conveniently placed for travel to and from the major local employment centres of the area.

Mains gas, electricity, water and drainage. Gas central heating and double glazing installed. Telephone line installed subject to BT regulations. Please note - the mention of any appliances and/or services within these particulars does not imply that they are in full and efficient working order.

From the Whitehaven office, proceed out of the town centre via Inkerman Terrace, turning right at the traffic lights on to the A595. Travel south on the A595 for approximately 14 miles and drop down the hill into Gosforth and proceed into the village. Pass the village shop and accountants on the right and the property can be found located a short distance after on the right hand side just before the fork in the road leading to Wasdale

There is a driveway to the side of the property providing off road parking for two cars. There is a small courtyard garden to the front and side access leads to the rear gardens which are substantial in size, mainly laid to lawn with an attractive paved patio area.

There is a set of attractive sandstone steps leading from the patio area into the first floor of the outbuildings.

Two storey stone outbuilding. The first floor has already undergone some significant works by the present owners and is now used as a home office. There is also an adjoining building as well as storage and WC.

Although some significant improvement has been made, there is still ample scope for a purchaser to convert the outbuildings to use as a self-contained annexe if required and subject to the necessary planning permissions.
