Full description

Description: Highly desirable characterful cottage located in the peaceful and picturesque Gilpin Valley. A charming, well-presented two bedroomed semi-detached country cottage built in a traditional local manner of stone and slate with a superb southerly and westerly aspect. The cottage enjoys extensive views across the valley with grounds/paddock extending behind the cottage. The cottage and grounds extend to 0.29 acres or thereabouts.

The cottage is approached via a driveway continuing adjacent to the westerly elevation with timber raised balcony terrace and parking facilities behind the cottage.

Offering living room with wood burning stove, and a modern, recently fitted breakfast kitchen on the ground floor, 2 bedrooms (1 en-suite) and bathroom on the first floor.

The property over the past 2-3 years has been improved with a refitted kitchen, replacement decking, new boiler, radiators and oil tank, remodelling bedroom 1 and general redecoration. The result is a very successful holiday let through Cumbrian Cottages with good occupancy rates and its turnover in the 2018/19 season is set to be around £15,000 to £20,000. The property has potential to increase significantly as the property becomes established. The property lets for more than £1,000 per week in high season. It is hoped that the property can be sold as a going concern holiday let with the furniture, bedding and other items available by separate negotiation.

Outside is a large timber decked balcony terrace accessed directly from the living room, providing an elevated aspect in which to enjoy the view. To the rear is parking for 2-3 cars and good sized paddock 'garden' area.
