A late 18th-century toll cottage is up for sale in Keswick.

The home on Chestnut Hill has been listed for sale on Zoopla by estate agent Edwin Thompson.

The detached, Grade II-listed residence, updated whilst retaining its original features, comes with a £499,950 guide price tag.

Edwin Thompson suggests the cottage can be a comfortable primary residence, secondary home, or a holiday let.

Central heating provides warmth throughout the property, supplemented by a wood-burning stove.

The upstairs living room adorns original beams, and dual aspect windows offer panoramic views of the Keswick landscape.

The property is also outfitted with a single garage and private off-street parking for one car.

The ground floor dining room hosts wooden flooring, an understairs cupboard and a wood-burning stove.

In the kitchen is a 'good range' of base and drawer units, an electric oven, gas hob, dishwasher and an extractor.

A utility area also provides space and plumbing for a washing machine, as well as space for an undercounter fridge.

The property's exterior is surrounded by private, 'easily-maintained' gardens.

The mature gardens are segmented into two levels with 'lovely' views, a slate patio, and mature trees.

An early internal inspection of this property is strongly recommended by Edwin Thompson to grasp the potential and charm of this two-bedroom cottage.

The property, with its strong history as a successful holiday let, is also inclusive of most contents that are available by separate negotiation.

The property is currently being used by the vendor as a second home, meaning there is no upper chain.

Toll Bar Cottage has also been ran as a successful holiday let in the past.

Most of the contents in the property are available by separate negotiation.
