Guide price

  • Bedrooms: 5
A whole lot of property right in the heart of Cockermouth! This five-bedroom terrace has masses of potential as a distinctive family home, bursting with character and offering spacious rooms. Market Street is home to a run of period properties which lead the way to the town hall. The slightly raised position of this property provides a wonderful outlook to the rear looking across the river, all just moments away from Main Street and ideal for walking to all of the Cockermouth's amenities. There is genuine flexibility in this house, set on four floors. The lower floor contains a lounge/ bedroom, shower room and utility area. The ground floor has a striking hallway, front room which could be a lounge or bedroom and dining kitchen. The first floor is home to two double bedrooms including one with en-suite and a large bathroom, with two further double bedrooms on the second floor. What a rare and exciting opportunity for a unique and vast town house! Please note- only the lower floor of this property was affected by recent floods, with external defences now in place.
