Full description

Tenure: Freehold

A rare opportunity to acquire an attractive three bedroom semi-detached cottage in Beckermet village centre, only a short drive to the neighbouring towns and with easy access to many of the major employment centres along the west coast.

Presented to the market with the added benefit of No Onward Chain and at a very sensible price, the property offers a spacious interior well suited to first time buyers or young families and should not be overlooked by investment buyers, with rental demand particularly high in the surrounding area.

In brief the accommodation comprises spacious lounge and kitchen/diner to the ground floor with three well proportioned bedrooms positioned on the first floor, together with family bathroom. Externally the property benefits from off road parking, a separate garage and low maintenance gardens to the front and rear.

All-in-al, a charming property which must be viewed to be appreciated.

The pretty village of Beckermet lies some three miles outside of Egremont and is less than 10 miles from St Bees Head Heritage Coast. Whitehaven, 10 miles distant, is an interesting port town with some exceptional architecture, and Cockermouth, having strong associations with the renowned poet William Wordsworth, is a little further afield. All of the western valleys of the Lake District National Park are within easy reach, together with the beautiful lakes and mountains of both Ennerdale and Wastwater.

Mains gas, electricity, water and drainage. Gas central heating and double glazing installed throughout. 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 through Egremont and approximately one mile after St Thomas's Cross roundabout, take a right turn signposted for Beckermet then immediately left and into the village. The property is on the right hand side of the road just after the turning to Hunters Rise
