Description

This is a lovely Georgian period country house set around two sides of a courtyard with a pretty double fronted separate cottage fronting the drive.

The main house offers a wealth of characterful family accommodation which has been sympathetically maintained and improved over many years to create this quite charming home.

Slate and stone flagged floors, exposed beams and vaulted ceilings to many first floor rooms, along with open fires and panelled doors create a delightful ambiance. With three staircases the accommodation is very flexible and a number of rooms could be utilised as needs dictate.

The pretty double fronted cottage offer separate three bedroomed accommodation which has been successfully let for a number of years but which could equally well be integrated into the main house if required or used for dependent or extended family.

The gardens are outstanding and extend in all to about 4.6 acres including sweeping lawns, a lawn tennis court, orchard and bluebell woodland as well as an extensive gravel parking area for numerous cars. There are far reaching views over rolling countryside to the Pennines, especially from the balcony off the cottage bedroom.

This is a lovely rambling family house which will appeal to those who enjoy being in the countryside, prefer not to be isolated and are looking for plenty of accommodation for family and guests or would appreciate letting income from the cottage.
