Full description

A two storey semi-detached cottage, probably mid-Victorian in period but adjoining a much older property in a charming location overlooking the green in the centre of one of our area's most attractive villages.

Pear Tree Cottage provides two reception rooms and kitchen on the ground floor and two good bedrooms and bathroom upstairs. The earlier modernisation works are now very much 'of their period' and full refurbishment is required. The double glazing requires replacement and rising and condensation dampness require attention. Immediately behind the cottage is a now overgrown garden area - there is no vehicular access and so parking is at the front.

This is a great opportunity for those seeking a renovation project in such a sought after location.

Blennerhasset, with its immediate neighbour Baggrow, lies just a mile from the A595 and a couple of miles from the A596. The neighbouring towns of Wigton and Aspatria are each within just a few minutes' drive and Cockermouth and the more industrial centres of West Cumbria beyond are within comfortable commuting distance, as indeed is Carlisle, around 18 miles to the east. The Lake District National Park, Bassenthwaite and Keswick lie just a few miles to the south and the Solway Coast, now an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, is approximately 20 minutes' drive to the north.
