Full description

Character cottage providing STUNNING LIVING KITCHEN and TWO RECEPTION rooms along with FOUR BEDROOMS and TWO BATHROOMS to the first floor, all with rural outlooks. The spacious grounds total approx. 0.5 ACRES or thereabouts, with the property being set in stunning surroundings in one of the North-Wests most sought after locations yet only minutes away from Junction 8 of the M61.Dating to around 1850, 12 Porch Cottages represents a very unique opportunity. It is not that properties come to the market within the highly sought after and exclusive are of White Coppice. Set close to the cricket field on the edge of the West Pennine Moors, within a beautiful area of fell and agricultural land, this cottage has been painstakingly restored and modernised by its current owners who are now seeking to relocate.
