Situated in an idyllic backwater on the edge of the village, this semi-detached stone built cottage has been painstakingly restored to provide a beautifully presented family home, combining modern day comforts with a lovely blend of period features including exposed stone walls & beamed ceilings.

The cottage briefly comprises a Sitting Room with a feature double sided fireplace & solid fuel stove also serving a superb Living/Dining Kitchen with bespoke window seats on 2 sides; being complemented by 3 first floor Bedrooms and a stylish 4 piece Bathroom suite. Planning has also been granted to extend over two stories on 2 sides.

Work completed within the cottage is of a high standard and the same applies to an external detached Garden Room or Home Office, but there is also an incomplete Annexe with planning approval & potential for conversion. This could provide ancillary accommodation or possibly form a holiday let (subject to obtaining consent) enjoying fabulous uninterrupted views directly over fields and quite literally on the doorstep of the Pennine Way. There are also approximately 2 acres of land at a raised level on the south side with planning for a Garage and farm building/store (circa 1500 sq ft).

The complex stands in a enviable rural location surrounding by open fields & countryside whilst also being within only a couple of minutes drive of the well respected village of Cowling; ideally suited to those seeking the true pleasures of semi-rural living but also practically located for those who commute to work, having excellent links to Manchester via the M65 (with Leeds also within less than an hours drive).
