Derwent Court, Cockermouth


Guide price

  • Bedrooms: 2
A room with a view! Set foot in this affordable two-bedroom flat which provides a surprising amount of space, a pleasant outlook to the river and a short walk away from the centre of Cockermouth. This is ideally located for all of the town's amenities with no flooding history to the building. The allocated car parking space is ideal for further commuting with both the A66 and A595 easily reached from this end of town.

The flat is one of a small number within the managed building and is accessed via a smart communal area. Once inside you'll be taken with the size of the rooms, with the lounge and the first bedroom being especially impressive. There is modernisation required across the property but it is ready and waiting to be made your own. This would be suitable as a first time buy, downsize or as a sound buy-to-let investment with a good potential yield.
