Property Details

The sale of Wordsworths offers a wonderful opportunity to acquire a highly versatile and beautifully presented property, equally suitable as a lovely home, business or a holiday letting property, which Cumbrian Cottages believe would generate £50,000 per annum in this most sought after of Lakeland towns. Tastefully finished throughout the property it has also been extended over the years to create a lovely private sitting room at the rear of the house designed to enjoy the view and opening onto the sunny terrace. Many of the original features have been retained with the advantage of under floor heating in all bathrooms in this substantial property which is set out over four floors and gives flexibility for a variety of uses and layouts. The present vendors currently operate a three bedroom guest house for which trading figures can be seen for genuinely interested parties.
