The Nook and Nook Cottage, Langwathby, Penrith, Cumbria
Detached House

A rare opportunity to acquire a handsome village property that offers buyers flexible accommodation over three floors.  Separated into two dwellings, affectionately known as The Nook and Nook Cottage, the properties benefit from a generous garden to the rear, currently split into two, one accompanying each property, a workshop and a utility outbuilding.

Nook Cottage is to the ground floor and first floor and briefly comprises a front and side entrance, kitchen, pantry, living room, WC and generous bedroom with shower facilities.  The side access also provides access to a good-sized workshop which has a door leading outside to the rear and a utility outbuilding.

The Nook is accessed from the first floor and is deceptive in size with superb accommodation over two floors and briefly including a generous entrance hall with understairs storage, kitchen/diner, living room, two large bedrooms and a family bathroom.

Externally there is a large lawned garden to the rear, currently divided in two, with the garden for The Nook having a seating area and direct access from the garden to the property.

This property would continue to work well as two separate dwellings, proving owners accommodation and another offering income potential, or alternatively, there would be scope to merge the two and create a substantial family home, within the desirable village of Langwathby.
