Property Description

Full description

DESCRIPTION

This exceptionally well proportioned period property was originally three separate hand-loom weavers cottages known as Nos 1, 2 & 3 ‘Green Gown’. They were built in 1767 and are well chronicled in local history books and archives. Within more recent times the cottages have been converted into one rather unique and fascinating family home.

The accommodation is quite individual and provides for a reception hall, a most spacious lounge with exposed beams and timbers and a real open fire, a dining room, a fully fitted breakfast kitchen and a separate utility room. There are three large double bedrooms, served by two three-piece bathrooms. There is a ‘secret’ container garden to the rear and an adjacent plot of land on which stands a detached double garage [plus forecourt/driveway parking].
