Hakodadi, Arlecdon, Frizington, Cumbria
Detached House

⁣Hakodadi presents an amazing, rare opportunity for a prospective purchaser to find their forever home, whilst situated on approximately 6 acres. ⠀⠀

Hakodadi, which gains its name from a port in Japan, visited by a sea captain who was a previous owner, was built in 1865 at the ending of the American Civil War. Upon entering Hakodadi, accommodation briefly comprises two large front aspect reception rooms, both with attractive open countryside views, conservatory, large kitchen, further reception room to the rear (which has been used for hairdressing purposes) and WC to the ground floor. To the first floor, there are three bedrooms, bathroom and a large cloaks cupboard, with two further rooms located in the attic which would create further bedroom space if the necessary permissions were granted.⠀⠀

Externally, there is a large driveway which provides offroad parking for several vehicles, walled, lawned gardens to front and side and a number of outbuildings to the rear, around 7 in total, some of which are in need of repair. The land which extends to approximately 6 acres is accessible via two entrances close to the house and would be perfect for equestrian use. There is also a possibility for development on this land, and we would urge prospective purchasers to consider the attractive opportunity of this venture. ⠀⠀

Whilst Hakodadi requires modernisation and refurbishment, the opportunity to create a forever home, in a stunning, semi-rural location is an exciting prospect which we would urge clients to consider. Viewing is highly recommended.
