Full description

Certainly of interest to those searching for a high level of privacy and seclusion, this unique cottage property is situated in a truly idyllic location, immediately adjoining open fields on the edge of the pretty rural hamlet of Middleton.

This individual one bedroomed home certainly fits the description of a 'hidden gem', being discreetly tucked away from the neighbouring properties in a somewhat secret location, and with virtually all rooms commanding impressive unspoilt open views over the surrounding countryside.

One of the unusual quirks of this delightful property is the unique position, being quite literally immediately adjoining open fields and farmland, and with access being via a stone paved footpath leading a short way through the field from a stile located at the top of Middleton Row itself.

Equipped with gas central heating and sealed unit double glazing, the comfortable and very cosy accommodation includes an entrance hall/sun room extension (also providing a small dining area), a living room with fireplace, a small fitted kitchen, a first floor landing, a double bedroom and a shower room.

Perhaps of interest to those searching for a compact and easy to manage second home/country retreat, the property is situated alongside the route of the famous Pennine Way, with a choice of other walks/footpaths also available from the doorstep. The property is also situated within the local conservation area.

Middleton is a small rural hamlet sharing a range of amenities with the neighbouring village of Cowling. The village is surrounded by beautiful open countryside and moorland and is within easy commuting distance of the nearby towns of Skipton, Keighley and Colne. The local amenities include a sub-post office/village store/off-licence, a public house, a restaurant, a fish and chip shop, a take-away, a park/playground, a primary school, a Church and a modern village hall offering a range of community classes and events. The nearby village of Cross Hills offers a wider selection of everyday shops and amenities and there are railway stations located in the villages of Cononley and Steeton.

Representing a unique opportunity to acquire an affordable and easy to manage cottage property within a delightful rural setting, this interesting home has much to commend it and an internal inspection is essential. Comprising in further detail:
