Alverton New Street, Wigton, Cumbria CA7 9AL£85,000
Sold with no onward chain, a unique town centre cottage dating from 1860, converted in the 1980’s in a truly innovative style to create an imaginative and quirky layout. Full use has been made of the original features especially roof trusses and timbers.
The characterful accommodation provides ground floor reception hallway, sitting room with gallery storage (possibly a study or sleeping area), dining kitchen, utility room, double bedroom and bathroom. To the first floor are the landing, possibly a sleeping area, shower room and two further bedrooms, the larger of which would be ideal for a games or recreation room. There is no private ground outside although there are pedestrian rights of access from the rear kitchen door to Station Road.
The property is located in this fine street of Georgian and Victorian houses forming part of the central Wigton conservation area and being within immediate reach of all of the town centre facilities. For those needing to commute, Carlisle and Cockermouth with west Cumbria beyond are within comfortable driving distance as are the Lake District National Park and the Solway Coast.Entrance
