Property Summary

This is one of the most gracious period properties we have come across in a long time and it’s certainly a home of distinction with rooms which are stunning and beautifully appointed. Brimming with Georgian features (such as working shutters, original doors and fireplaces, wood panelling, cornices and mouldings etc, not to mention the curved staircase which runs from bottom to top) it has the perfect balance of old and new and in recent times has been re-fitted in part, including the installation of a stunning new kitchen with its centre island being the spot to enjoy a glass of wine. The bathroom is modern and in keeping with the age of the property, the first floor lounge has painted wood panelling and an original fireplace, all of which are complimented by three perfectly proportioned and characterful double bedrooms on first and second floors. The south facing Mediterranean courtyard garden is sunny and private and is a fabulous place to listen to the bird song. Located close to Cockermouth Castle and in one of the most historic parts of town yet literally within a stone’s throw of a great selection of shops, bars and eateries it’s perfectly positioned for other amenities such as sports and leisure facilities, Outstanding schools etc. We’re bowled over and think you will be too.
