About the property
Sitting within an iconic row of weavers cottages overlooking the much admired village of Jackson Bridge, this grade II listed property must be seen internally to be fully appreciated. It is of traditional stone build construction beneath a stone slate roof and is believed to date back to the late 18th / early 19th century. The row is well known as it appeared as a key location in the long running TV comedy series Last of the Summer Wine.

The property is entered on the ground floor via a wooden door which opens into the dining kitchen – this features a stone flagged floor (with underfloor heating), stone fireplace with Aga range style cooker and a good range of fitted units. There are also exposed beams and mullioned windows - these are a common feature throughout the property. The kitchen is open plan to the former cellar which features a stone vaulted ceiling and is currently used as snug – this also benefits from underfloor heating.

Stairs from the kitchen lead to the first floor landing area and a useful recessed store room off the stairs. On this floor there is a double bedroom, large house bathroom, walk-in store room and another room with flexible use – currently a garden room / office but also ideal for use as a guest bedroom. It has doors out to the rear garden.

The second floor is accessed via a wooden staircase which leads directly into the lounge. This features 2 sets of mullioned windows to the front enjoying the views, exposed roof trusses to the high angled ceiling and a recessed stone fireplace with multi-fuel stove. A double bedroom is also found on this floor enjoying the views to the rear.

The property is well presented throughout and combining a gas central heating system, wooden framed double glazed windows and modern fittings with traditional character features.

It is accessed via a single track lane (which is owned by the adjacent property) and has a paved parking area with space for 2 vehicles opposite and a garden area below.
To the rear is a further enclosed garden area. Beyond here is a small paddock of 0.71 acres approx which is shared by this property and 3 others within the row and is accessed via a gate from the lane.
