A STUNNING Victorian period townhouse in Whitehaven has gone on the market.

First Choice Move is offering the freehold property on Hensingham Road, priced at £425,000.

Set over four floors, this substantial four-bed house has been meticulously upgraded and maintained by the current owners.

They have taken time to restore it with sympathy and a wealth of stunning original features.

This property is offered for sale with no forward chain, and is in a quiet cul-de-sac, within easy walking distance of the town centre, harbour and schools. It offers the comfort of modern living, with a new roof, new uPVC doors and windows, full rewire and condensing boiler installed all within the last 10 years.

The property also offers a development opportunity, as there has previously been planning permission granted for a separate, four-bedroom dwelling within the large grounds.

The accommodation briefly comprises: entrance vestibule, with beautiful Victorian tiled floor and ornate glazed door leading to the entrance hall, with impressive original corbels and cornice framing the ornate wooden staircase.

The light and spacious lounge boasts a large bay window, and a beautiful open fireplace with granite hearth. The dining room also enjoys a lovely multi-fuel stove and wooden shutters built into the windows.

The contemporary oak kitchen boasts a large centre island and fully integrated appliances, including a new Rangemaster cooker.

To the first floor there are three beautifully presented bedrooms, with original fireplaces and stunning décor. The modern four-piece family bathroom is also conveniently located on the first floor.

The beautiful master suite encompasses the entire top floor of the property, where a spectacular sea view can be enjoyed from the large arch window.

Externally the property has plenty more to offer, with large grounds.
