As you walk through the door of this beautiful Grade II Listed home you know straight away that you re in for a treat. Built in the 1700 s this 4/5 bedroomed mid-terrace property has been sympathetically and lovingly maintained and offers truly gorgeous accommodation on 3 levels. The kitchen is in natural pine and in keeping with the property, the Victorian style bathroom is fabulous with its claw-foot bath and the classic high level cistern completes the traditional look. There are original beams to ceilings and windows, ceiling roses and cornices to many rooms, there are natural wood skirtings and door frames and the Listed fireplace in the first floor sitting room is stunning. Mixed with the more modern touches such as the gas heating, practical oak flooring and tasteful décor this property is absolutely exquisite and one we are very proud to market for sale. Located close to the town centre yet away from the hustle and bustle, you ll be glad of the off-road parking and the private courtyard garden not to mention immediate access to a pretty communal area which overlooks Bitter Beck a delightful place to enjoy your gin and tonic on a summers evening! We could go on but we think you should see for yourself


We love our cosy home not only because it offers us a great many attractive rooms to live in, entertain and accommodate visits from family and friends, it also provides us with a great study/office space to work from home comfortably and, importantly, off-street parking for one car and one across the entry driveway. Our townhouse is in a historic area of Cockermouth and provides some lovely Grade 11 listed features and attractive outdoor spaces, one private and one by the beck, where we enjoy the peace and quiet as well as chats and drinks with neighbours. All the lovely local shops, hotels, pubs and cafes in Cockermouth are closeby though the street itself is very quiet. We love everything about our home and our family and friends adore visiting. We are seeking a move to Scotland to be close to family otherwise we d stay forever.
