This Georgian townhouse at the heart of Whitehaven’s town centre offers five floors of living space and the advantage of off-road parking.

It retains original features such as staircases, cornicing and fireplaces complemented by contemporary touches and high-quality fixtures and fittings.

The current owner has carried out renovations but the opportunity remains for a new purchaser to add finishing touches.

Steps lead up to the traditional entrance which opens into a hallway with period detail including architraves and original stairs down to the basement and up to the first floor.

A spacious and formal dining room has three windows, attractive wainscoting and an exposed wooden floor and there is an additional second reception room and a cloakroom on the ground floor.

Stone steps lead down to the basement which has been converted into a dining kitchen with Shaker-style units, solid granite work surfaces, a range-style cooker, solid wood central island unit and four windows.

There is also a parlour room and utility on this level.

The first floor provides a large formal lounge with working wooden shutters and two fireplaces and an adjacent study with panelling and matching wainscoting.

A bathroom has working shutters and a period bathroom.

The second floor has three double bedrooms, the master benefitting from a feature bathroom and access to a Jack and Jill wc.

The top floor has a substantial loft room which is currently used for storage but could be converted for a range of uses, from games room to gym or office for home working.

The house has two off-road parking spaces and is in a very convenient location, close to shops, bars and restaurants with the Albion Square Business Centre just a short walk away.
