This pretty grade II listed detached stone-built cottage is the epitome of charming.
Tucked away in a little hamlet of stone and farm buildings at the bottom of Ormskirk Road this pretty grade II listed farm cottage dates approximately to 1850's and forms part of an interesting group of listed buildings. This almost symmetrical double-depth double-fronted stone built house with stone slate roof and round-headed doorway is the epitome of charming and features an interior full of period details including beamed ceilings, a working fireplace and original stained and leaded glass windows plus has the notable feature of boasting a substantial two storey garage / outbuilding at the side making it a very unique period home.
The interior is as engaging as the exterior with the lounge and main bedroom freshly decorated and refurbished to a good standard. The rest of the accommodation would benefit from some updating but is well laid out with tidy and well-presented rooms that have plenty of charm and lots of potential. All the rooms enjoy pleasant views over the gardens with a generous plot to the rear providing scope for further extensions (subject to necessary planning approval) plus the large stone built double storey coach house stye outbuilding and additional brick built garden store provides fantastic redevelopment potential. Internal viewing is absolutely essential to appreciate the very sizeable amount of space on offer (approx 1,789 SQFT) and is available by appointment today.
Set within a lovely conservation area close to motorway networks, it is ideal for commuting into Liverpool or Manchester and perfect for a professional couple who want a character home. It is also much larger than expected and therefore would also suit a family who want something different or don't want to live on an estate. On the edge of the village it has a pleasant semi-rural feel yet is only minutes away from schools, plenty of shops and amenities including an award-winning butchers and country pubs, plus Ashurst Beacon Country Park is less than 5 minutes drive.
