Close to all the amenities of Workington town centre, and the popular open space of Curwen Park, a three-storey period property now on the market is ideal for a family.

The terraced home, in the town’s conservation area, has been modernised with character features retained and the added benefit of a secluded and enclosed rear garden with patio.

Highlights of the property include a reception running the full length of the house with French doors to the garden and a dining/family room warmed by a multi-fuel stove and open to a modern fitted kitchen.

An additional living room with multi-fuel stove, which could be set aside for the sole use of the children, is on the first floor and there are five double bedrooms and two family bathrooms.

The striking double-fronted property has great kerb appeal with a traditional front door in a sandstone surround flanked by sash windows, with the two upper floors having three sash windows each.

A vestibule has doors leading off to the reception rooms. The lounge/dining room is more than 27ft long and has modern fire suite complemented by two radiators.

The family/dining room is kept cosy with a multi-fuel stove set into the chimney breast while the attractive kitchen is fitted with high-gloss light-coloured wall and floor units and has a patio door leading out to the garden.

Alongside the first-floor living room are two bedrooms, both with original fireplaces, and a contemporary bathroom with spa bath and separate enclosed shower.

Three more bedrooms, two with feature fireplaces, are on the top floor, along with a second bathroom. As well as the fireplace, one of the chambers also has fitted bedroom furniture.

Outside, the property has a charming enclosed back garden with a paved patio area and lawn.

The terraced home in Curwen Street, Workington, is for sale at £235,000 from Hunters Estate Agents, tel. 01900 872001.
