This is a lovely Grade II listed Victorian cottage in a tranquil countryside setting just off the desirable Waters Road. It is nicely presented throughout with a wealth of character and original features including exposed stonework and roof timbers, all complimented by more modern conveniences of double-glazed windows in hardwood frames, gas fired central heating, multi-fuel stove in the lounge, and a stunning bathroom. As you would imagine, it enjoys some lovely views over the surrounding countryside and Pennine hills. If you are not going to live in it yourself, it would make a great ‘holiday let’ being ideally placed for those who enjoy walking and is just a short walk along to the Tunnel End Visitor Centre and Cafe. Externally, it has a good-sized well planned out garden to the front enclosed by timber fencing and a drystone wall, whilst at the rear you will find parking for at least 2 cars and access to a very useful outbuilding.
The front entrance door opens into:-

The front garden is enclosed by timber fencing and drystone walling. It has been well planned out to create a lovely space for outside entertaining and relaxing. You will find much of the garden is laid with artificial lawn around a purpose-built area with pizza oven, space for your BBQ, log storage, and firepit. At the end of the garden there is a sizeable sitting area with central brick built firepit. At the rear there is a communal yard giving access to your own freehold parking area for 2 or 3 cars, and a brick built out building (measuring 18’9” x 4’7”) which has power sockets and lighting. There is also an outside water tap both at the front and rear.
