  • Bedrooms: 2
A spacious bungalow in a quality location! Welcome home to this wonderful two-bedroom detached property on Lowscales Drive being sold with no onward chain. This is one of Cockermouth's most-loved residential areas which has the benefit of being within walking distance of the town centre but close to the Lake District and within its own peaceful community. The bungalow sits on a generous plot and takes pride of place on the street. The rooms are all of a good size and there is a nice configuration to them. An L-shaped hallway takes you to the wide lounge, two double bedrooms, a contemporary shower room and a long kitchen with the dining room beyond. There is a good internal finish across the home and it has clearly been well cared for. Externally an attached garage provides a useful space, with a driveway at the front, smartly presented accompanying garden and a low-maintenance rear garden.
