2 Bedroom House - semi-detached

  • South Street, Cockermouth
  • EPC Rating E
  • Two-bedroom semi-detached house
  • Two additional attic rooms
  • Superb location near the town centre
  • Potential buy-to-let or project

There are two great opportunities here at 4 South Street. As a buy-to-let investment this property is a solid choice given its good internal finish on the ground floor and two double bedrooms. As a development project we see huge potential to reconfigure the second bedroom to open up the access for the attic rooms, meaning this could be a great three-four bedroom house.

The location is in the heart of Cockermouth and a stroll away from the many amenities on offer in this historic market town. The house currently features a lounge, breakfast kitchen and a ground floor bathroom. The first floor holds the two double bedrooms. The attic rooms are accessed via the second bedroom and have a generous amount of space on offer. There is a shared patio to the rear and a good amount of nearby on-street parking.
