  • Fabulous 2-3 bedroomed town centre property
  • Small garage and garden
  • Beautifully fitted and presented

THIS UNIQUE TOWNHOUSE WITH FLEXIBLE ACCOMMODATION OFFERS SO MUCH and it’s been beautifully looked after over the years too. Morning coffee on the balcony ? GARAGE parking in the middle of town ? We can do that !! A striking red front door leads you into a hallway which opens up into a cosy living area incorporating snug, dining area and kitchen with WOOD BURNER. There’s ample storage space too including a practical utility room and a small garage which is a rarity in Cockermouth town centre. Upstairs there are two delightful bedrooms and a 4 piece bathroom but the MAIN SELLING POINT just has to be the large bright and cheerful first floor lounge which includes a built in pull down bed (making the perfect space for guests) and the French doors which lead out onto a small balcony overlooking the enclosed lawned garden to the rear. You really must view to understand all that this little gem has to offer.
