Full description

Tenure: Freehold

A traditional early 17th Century, mid terraced property both in an enviable position in the Ennerdale Valley, a short drive to beautiful Ennerdale Water, and set within a backdrop of some of the better recognised western fells. This charming property offers a wealth of accommodation which in brief comprises entrance porch, lounge, dining room, second reception room, and utility room with separate pantry and WC to the ground floor. There are three well appointed bedrooms positioned on the first floor, together with spacious family bathroom. Externally, the property benefits from allocated parking for two cars in addition to a sizeable courtyard garden. Tastefully refurbished to a high standard and providing comfortable living accommodation perfectly suited to a young family. The property would also suit the second home market and is likely to produce an attractive return on investment if utilised as a holiday let.

Viewing is 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); night storage heating supplemented by log burning stove; 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 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
