Surprisingly Spacious And Sociable Semi With Superb Sea & Sunset Views. Viewed from the front, you wouldn’t guess that this bungalow has three double bedrooms upstairs. Or that it has another bedroom (or two!) on the spacious & versatile ground floor.
Kiln Green avenue is a quiet street, mainly made up of semi-detached bungalows built in the 1950’s & 60’s.
And this one is somewhat unusual, thanks to the full width dormer at the rear. It's transformed the traditional single storey, two bedroom layout.
Over the years it’s also had the benefit of an extension and conservatory at the rear, creating plenty of downstairs space and giving you options.
It does need a little TLC and it would be fair to call it a project property, rather than somewhere where you can just move in and put your feet up.
But if you are looking for a project you’re unlikely to find somewhere with so much scope and potential - especially in this popular village.
What you see at the front of the property is a spacious lounge, the built in single garage and a double bedroom.
There’s another bedroom/study at the rear, along with the bathroom and a fitted kitchen which is open to the dining room.
And there’s more!
The conservatory looks out to the sun-trap southwest facing back garden. It's accessed through the kitchen and leads to the large utility room that, whilst handy, could surely be put to better use?
For example, it could be opened up to the dining room. That would give you the chance to create a much bigger, more sociable space for cooking, eating and relaxing together.
Stairs head up from the dining room to the first floor, which has three double bedrooms and a w/c, so you don’t have to nip downstairs in the middle of the night.
As all three of the bedrooms face the rear, they all benefit from fabulous sea views where you can watch spectacular sunsets over the sea.
The back garden gets the sun throughout the day and has a seating area, a manageable lawn and mature borders.
There’s parking on the drive for one car, in front of the built-in single garage (which also gives you something to think about…given hardly anyone parks the car in the garage these days).
High Harrington is a really popular village that’s less than 10 minutes drive to the centre of Workington, with the countryside on your doorstep.
If you don’t have a car the No 30 bus picks up at the end of the street and only takes 15 minutes to get into town.
It’s only a short walk to the centre of the village, which has the recently refurbished Galloping Horse pub and the community centre.
It’s also a great starting point for exploring the National Park, with the north shore of Loweswater being only a 20 minute drive or a 60 minute bike ride away.
Given the versatile space on offer this property could appeal to a family, especially if someone struggles with stairs.
With that in mind it’s good to know that it’s only a 5 minute drive to Beckstone Primary School (rated 'Good' by Ofsted).
For older kids, there's St Joseph’s and Workington Academy. Both are less than 10 minutes drive away or there are frequent buses from the village to the town centre, the journey taking around half an hour.
This property is a classic case of “don’t judge a book by its cover”. There’s so much room and potential on offer…if you’re willing to take on a bit of a project and give it some TLC.
It’s available chain free, meaning if you’re planning to do it up before moving in or selling on, it could be a relatively simple and straightforward purchase.
Bungalows are always popular. Bungalows in High Harrington even more so.
