A great opportunity to buy a substantial property in the centre of Cockermouth for an affordable price. Requiring a degree of modernisation and possible re-configuration of the living space, this property provides a real opportunity to develop a stunning family home. Although some work is required to make this into a modern, family home, the property is habitable, benefiting from partial double glazing and gas central heating.

Entering the property, a wide and light hallway has an impressive high ceiling - a feature of all the rooms within the main body of the house. The large living room has been extended through to an equally large dining room, providing an extended family space at the heart of the home, with windows on both elevations.

A single storey extension houses the dated kitchen and bathroom and although everything works as it should, both rooms are functional rather than attractive.

Upstairs, a very large master bedroom is light and spacious thanks to two windows to the front elevation and has two built-in storage cupboards. A three-quarter sized second bedroom is large enough to contain it's own mini en-suite with toilet and hand basin. This space could be easily converted into additional storage, or removed to increase the size of the bedroom.

The huge attic space extends across most of the internal floor area of the property and offers standing room almost to where the walls meet the eaves, as well as an existing skylight. Accessed by stairs that do not conform to current building regulations, it is has been primarily used as storage. A sympathetic conversion, similar to that undertaken in neighbouring properties, would transform this space into high quality living accommodation.

Externally, a large greenhouse/conservatory is attached to the house. Although of poor quality, it does provide an indication of the space available for a future extension, if required. A good-sized, brick-built out-house and yard area offer additional outside space.

As an added bonus, land to the rear owned by the neighbouring church, has historically been available for the use of this property and it's immediate neighbours and provides rear access to both properties.

This is a unique opportunity to buy a solidly constructed property with great potential to become your forever home. The location, space on offer and build quality of the main house cannot be matched by many modern homes - especially in this price bracket.

Fully modernised properties on the same row have sold for in excess of £210,000 and early viewing is highly recommended for the chance to own this exceptional property .
