If you’ve got a bigger family than most you’ll be looking for a bigger than most property.
And if your family includes an older relative (or an antisocial teenager) then having a self contained cottage that you can also get to from the main house could be just perfect.
Or you could rent it out. It’s got its own private entrance and being less than 5 minutes walk from the town centre shops means you should get plenty of interest as a lucrative holiday let.
Both the house and cottage have been well looked after but you may want to freshen them up and put your own stamp on the place.
And as blank canvases go, it’s pretty big!
The ground floor has a spacious lounge where you step up to the dining room. The kitchen is next door to the dining room.
Given the size of everything else here the kitchen isn’t the biggest. If you were thinking of updating the fitted units you may consider opening up the kitchen and dining room to create a larger more sociable space.
The cottage can be accessed from the kitchen (but it also has its own private entrance from the drive). There’s a kitchen / living room on the ground floor and a double bedroom with a bathroom upstairs.
The first floor of the main house has four double bedrooms (one with an ensuite) and the family shower room.
There’s residents parking but you might not need to get a permit, as the property has secure off-street parking for a couple of cars behind substantial wooden doors. It’s a massive bonus as it’s the only house on the street to have this.
It’s also got a fabulous garden. It’s accessed by climbing some steep steps but the climb is definitely worth it!
Don’t worry, you don’t have to carry the mower up the steps - the garden at the top is a zero maintenance space with a large paved seating area and artificial grass.
It gets the sun all day and has lovely views across the rooftops. And when the sun sets you can all retire to the wooden summerhouse which has light & power.
The location is great - less than a 5 minute walk to the town centre shops, pubs and restaurants. The marketplace is down the street and it’s just round the corner from the leisure centre.
It’s a great spot to attract short stay visitors to the cottage or an equally convenient family base.
All Saints CofE Primary (rated “Good” by Ofsted) is only a 10 minute walk away (or 2 minutes if you need to run them up in the car).
Older kids have a little further to travel to reach Cockermouth School (another “Good” school), but it’s only a 15 minute walk or a 5 minute bike ride away.
Chances are you’ll want to put your own stamp on the place and being bigger than most means it could turn into an epic project.
But the upside is that once the work is done you’ll have a bigger than most and better than most property that you can feel proud of.
