Papcastle, Cockermouth


Guide price

  • Bedrooms: 3
This is a beautiful period property, built in Georgian times, and in its entirety was once the home of a local Mill Owner - the original house was split into two in around 1950 leaving what we have now, Lindenside East. It sits on an elevated position in the heart of Papcastle with views over the village to countryside and the Lake District fells beyond.

The property is certainly a project! It oozes charm and character and although a wealth of original features have been retained over the years it still has so much more potential. I could imagine an Aga in the kitchen, a stove or open fire in the sitting room and I would want to make the most of the shutters at the windows. I love the potential that Lindenside East offers!

As you walk through the front door you are welcomed by a reception room, there is a beautifully proportioned sitting room, large kitchen and a modern wet room. Upstairs there are 3 double bedrooms and a single bedroom and a bathroom. There is good cellar space and stone sconces ideal for wine storage! Externally you'll find a small garden to the front, useful stores, a small courtyard and a single garage.
