Semi-Detached House

Full Details

Picturesque and romantic this semi-detached cottage was built around 1874 and has undergone a complete refurbishment by the current vendors. Arts and crafts in original style this home has been sympathetically enhanced with period homely touches. A central vestibule gives access to the ground floor accommodation with an open plan living/dining room and integrated kitchen. Having a dual aspect the space is filled with natural light with an exposed brick chimney breast providing a fantastic feature and boasts a beautiful tiled open fire. The kitchen is cottage style with decorative cabinetry and a peninsular island. A perfect utility room provides access to the cottage garden and a period bathroom has integral storage. A warm and cosy lounge overlooks the garden and french doors provide a lovely bright aspect. A dual fuel stove is a gorgeous focal point to the room with stunning welsh slate decorative arch, insert and hearth. From the lounge an additional room is accessed and is a useful garden room or home office. To the first floor are two double bedrooms with decorative exposed beams and the master has the benefit of a WC. There is an adjoining cupboard which has been tiled and could accommodate a separate shower, should the new purchaser desire. Externally permit parking is available to the front of the property, whilst to the rear a South-Easterly cottage garden is the most wonderful spot to enjoy peace and tranquillity.

Historically in both World Wars nuns resided in the Southgarth Cottages and helped soldiers convalesce. Internally it was joined with the property adjoining and has since been disconnected as two separate dwellings. At a later date the cottages were used for accommodation for the staff of Winterbottom Hall.
