Mockerkin, Cockermouth


Guide price

  • Bedrooms: 4
A WONDERFUL DEVELOPMENT OPPORTUNITY WITH PLANNING PERMISSION FOR AN ADDITIONAL FOUR-BEDROOM DWELLING! Simply bursting with character touches and bags of outside space. Mockerkin lies on the North-Western edge of the Lake District and is famous for the stunning nearby tarn. The village is as quaint as you could imagine and further amenities are available in the nearby town of Cockermouth via the A5086, which in the other direction serves as a great commuting road for industries on the west coast of the county. This beautiful home features plenty of rooms downstairs including a grand lounge which you'll fall in love with, a traditional dining room, kitchen, cloakroom, utility and boot room. The remarkable spiral stone staircase leads upstairs to four double bedrooms including a master with en-suite shower room, and a smartly presented family bathroom. The attached barn is currently a vast space suitable for storage on two floors, but has planning permission in place for a four-bedroom dwelling to be developed. Along with the substantial surrounding gardens this property could be perfect for small developers or a large family with the vision to adapt the barn into a separate home.
