Situated in a private courtyard in this quiet and always highly sought after village to the outskirts of Cockermouth, easily accessible to the Lake District National Park and Solway Coast, a most appealing 4 bedroom property offering characterful and spacious reverse accommodation, created by the conversion of a former manor house.
<b>Directions</b><br />From Cockermouth take the A66 towards Workington and after approximately 2 miles take the left-hand junction signposted Brigham. Follow the signs to High Brigham and at the end of Stan Lonning, in the village, turn right. Go past the village hall and take the 3rd entrance on the right into Brigham Hill Mansion. Go straight ahead, number 5a is on the left in the courtyard.<br /><br /><b>Location</b><br />Built originally at the turn of the eighteenth century, 5a Brigham Hill Mansion was created by the careful and considerate conversion of the original main building and courtyard, approximately 40 years ago.
Retaining much of the original facade, with the courtyard clock, the property provides deceptively spacious and flexible accommodation, with a reception room and ensuite bedroom to the ground floor, the first floor consisting of a lounge / dining room with separate kitchen, 3 further bedrooms and the main bathroom.
Externally the property has allocated parking to the front and an enclosed, private and easily manageable garden to the side with outside storage.
