Full DetailsABOUT THE PROPERTY This unique and quite unexpected property is the combination of 2 former weavers' cottages. The cottages are of traditional stone built construction under a stone slate roof, the front elevation being rendered. We are informed that the cottages in their current 3 storey format date back to the 18th century but there was previously an older farmhouse and barn on the site possibly dating back to the 1600's.
Our clients purchased number 13 in 1971 and then number 12, the cottage next door approximately 8 years later. Following this the two cottages were knocked through and extensively renovated. Great care has been taken to feature original exposed timbers, stone fireplaces and mullioned windows. The property is presented to a good modern standard but buyers may wish to update certain aspects such as the kitchen to their own tastes.
The property is entered through a small porch on the ground floor which leads into the dining kitchen. There is also a lounge and rear entrance porch on this floor. At first floor level there is a landing, bathroom, shower room and 3 bedrooms. On the top floor there is a stunning living room with exposed roof truss and mullioned windows and a further master bedroom with en-suite.
Externally there is a pleasant garden area and generous parking bay located across the lane in front of the house. To the rear is a further garden area.
Potential buyers should note that our clients also own number 11 New Fold, a smaller but equally characterful 1 bedroom cottage which is attached to the house. This will be made available by separate negotiation to potential buyers of the main house if of interest.
