WOW! Around 0.25 acres in a central village location, this is a superb opportunity for a home with so much further potential with an adjoining barn/workshop and extensive gardens.

This semi-detached 3 bedroom home is in need of some minor upgrading in parts but would make a fabulous family home with the possibility of extending out to the rear or into the barn to the side to create larger living accommodation, a studio/working from home space, workshop or even to create a second dwelling, all subject to the relevant planning consents.
To the rear is a hidden gem of a garden with extensive spaces split into two tiers. On the lower level there is a walled patio, two lawns, terraces and access into the workshop. Steps lead to the upper level, where there is a large lawn with lovely views across the village, some hardstanding areas ideal for greenhouses or even more elevated terraces, raised beds and a rockery. The barn has two garage spaces and to the front there is offroad parking and a pretty walled garden.
Internally this double fronted home has a lounge, dining room, kitchen, pantry/store, three bedrooms; two doubles and a small double and family bathroom. There are two outhouses in the rear courtyard for use as utility/boot room/garden store.
The pretty village of Sandwith sits around 3 miles from Whitehaven where there is an attractive harbour and a wide range of shops, schools and other local amenities. The popular village of St Bees is a short distance away with its long sandy beach and towering cliff tops. The western fells of the Lake District National Park are close-by and there are rail links nearby to the Cumbrian Coast line.
