Full description

Tenure: Freehold

A unique opportunity to acquire a charming two bedroomed, end terraced cottage with newly constructed annexe, in the beautiful Ennerdale Valley. The cottage itself offers two bedrooms, both en suite, in addition to deceptively spacious living accommodation downstairs. The annexe which cannot be split from the main house offers incredibly versatile accommodation and could very easily be integrated back into the original cottage to create one impressive residence. Subject to consents, even used as two separate self catering apartments, with installed services designed for whichever eventuality is chosen.

A truly unique property which also benefits from allocated parking and two privately enclosed courtyard gardens. Likely to appeal to a wide range of prospective purchasers, an early inspection is most certainly encouraged.

Just over a mile to the west of the Lakeland village of Ennerdale Bridge and less than three miles from beautiful Ennerdale Water. The lovely old market town of Cockermouth is some 10 miles distant, with Keswick approximately 18 miles.

Mains electricity and water; drainage to shared private sewage treatment plant (the purchaser will contribute towards the annual costs); radiator wet heating system supplemented by log burning stove; partial double glazing installed. 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 Hensingham and into Cleator Moor. Continue out through the town centre onto Ennerdale Road, turning right at the crossroads onto Trumpet Road and take the immediate left. Stay on this road for approximately 2 miles, over the cattle grid onto Longmoor. Bank House Farm is the first property on the left
