Full description

Situated in the centre of what has always been a popular, quiet side-street within the conservation area, this is a typical two-storey terraced cottage providing an ideal home for first time purchasers, single or professional couples or indeed for buy-to-let in the investment market.

With the benefits of gas central heating and sealed unit double glazing, the accommodation is traditionally laid out with sitting room, kitchen, rear lobby and bathroom on the ground floor and two double bedrooms upstairs. Outside are forecourt and a rear yard area across the communal pathway. George Street leads directly from High Street just over a quarter of a mile from the centre of Wigton within easy range of day-to-day shops, cafes, post office, pubs and hotels. Also close by are both Nelson Thomlinson Secondary School and Longthwaite Primary School, and the rugby squash and tennis clubs and indeed the swimming baths are also accessible. The Railway Station is just beyond the town centre and then the by pass beyond gives good access to Carlisle and the East and to the West.
