Full description:
This exceptional three bedroomed apartment has been created from an imposing Victorian townhouse, together with five other units.

Located on the first floor, the bay windows give fine outlooks over the town towards the Lakeland hills and fells. The rooms are gracefully proportioned and still retain a number of original features. There is a ground floor entrance with intercom and automatic door controls leading to a first floor landing. The accommodation is conveniently arranged offering three good bedrooms, one of which is en-suite. Outside is private parking and attractive communal grounds. All within easy reach of the town centre.
