Full description

*** NO CHAIN *** Extensively modernised mid terrace cottage situated in the heart of the popular village of Foulridge within a short driving distance away from the amenities offered by Colne and Barnoldswick town centres and the historic market town of Skipton is within a twenty minute drive. The cottages on Towngate are amongst the oldest in the village and the deeds for this particular property go back to a Lease agreement from 1836. It is believed the cottages were built in the late 1700s and were owned by hat makers, farm workers and weavers which represented the growing cottage industry in the village at the time. Number 29 was owned by hand loom weavers and even a retired gamekeeper appears on the documentation. The stone shelves at the rear of the cottage were once used as the cold store as they had a vent to outside and doors on the front.

The property is beautifully presented throughout and briefly comprises on the ground floor, fully fitted modern kitchen housing an excellent range of modern wall and base units with complementary work surfaces and splashbacks, integrated oven and gas hob, washing machine and fridge, stainless steel sink unit. There is an excellent sized lounge with UPVC patio doors leading to the rear garden and stairs providing access to the first floor. To the first floor is a landing area, excellent sized double bedroom to the front and modern three piece bathroom suite in white with Jacuzzi bath with mixer shower over, vanity unit with wc and wash basin. Externally, to the front of the property is a flagged forecourt with locked outbuildings and further store and to the rear is an excellent sized low maintenance tiered garden.

The property benefits from the modern day comforts of UPVC double glazing and gas fired central heating and must be viewed internally to be fully appreciated.

Foulridge is steeped in history with the construction of the Mile Tunnel and the canal bringing a growth in village industry. The wharf and warehouse which were built at the time are now a pub and Restaurant (Café Cargo).
