Park Road, Bothel, Wigton


Guide price

  • Bedrooms: 3
There are options open here at The Forge! This is currently a charming three-bedroom detached house which enjoys a large attached workshop and a wonderful garden to the side which is large and private. The owners have had planning permission approved for a conversion which would see the house double in size, creating a four-bedroom home with an en-suite and ample living space. Bothel is a semi-rural village with a variety of homes, including some beautiful period architecture. There is the benefit of a popular pub as well as a village hall and primary school. Set just outside the Lake District National Park it is an ideal base for anyone who wishes to explore the area. The nearby A595 connects you to Cockermouth and Carlisle, with the A591 linking you to Bassenthwaite Lake and Keswick. This could be a wonderful investment, especially as a holiday home. Equally the village lends itself to family life and the house would be equally fitting, especially given the scope for renovation.
