The Property
Entering the property through the front door the vestibule has convenient, shelved storage. A door opens into the large living room which boasts a large feature inglenook fireplace complete with multifuel stove firing a back boiler feeding the radiators. The floor is laid with an in-keeping and practical slate tile and a window looks south to the front garden.

To the rear of the property lies the kitchen which is fitted with a range of cottage style base and wall mounted units topped with solid oak work tops. A small Belfast sink is incorporated and there is space for free standing appliances. A small window peeps out of the gable end enjoying enviable views west along the dale and a door opens to the rear lane over which there is a right of access benefitting the property.

Off the kitchen two steps lead up to the bathroom which includes an enamel terracotta roll top bath with mixer tap and hand held shower attachment over, together with wash hand basin and WC. The room is panelled and laid in a mosaic effect tiled floor.

Stairs rise to the first floor landing off which are two double bedrooms. The first room incorporates a traditional cast iron fireplace (not currently in use) and a window looking south over the garden and beyond to open views. The second bedroom is a spacious room easily accommodating a double bed with exposed stone feature wall currently used as a reading room / studio, also having a built in storage cupboard/wardrobe.

Externally the property is approached over a grassed footpath and the garden is accessed via a garden gate largely laid to stone paving with some raised beds and seating areas. Views can be enjoyed from this sheltered area and fencing and dry stone walling separates the owned area from the neighbouring gardens.

It is understood that the property is serviced by mains electricity, water and drainage and central heating radiators are powered by a back boiler connected to the multi-fuel stove.
