This is a truly unique and wonderfully presented semi detached stone cottage in a truly unspoilt location in Diggle, Saddleworth, and can only really be appreciated by viewing in person.

The house briefly comprises of an entrance porch, a Yorkshire stone flagged fitted kitchen with dual aspect views, an open plan lounge and dining room with a window seat, and to the first floor two double bedrooms and a modern bathroom.

The house sits within a fabulous series of gardens and is accessed via a tarmac driveway through a functioning field - an incredibly private feature! The grounds include ample parking, two sizeable lawn gardens which are ideal for children and could offer further scope to include a double garage, as well as two further garden areas, one with a patio seating space and lawn, and a second which is used to keep chickens and ducks.
This is a bright and generous sized house, which could also offer further scope to extend creating a third bedroom if desired, subject to the usual planning permissions.
