This gorgeous semi-detached cottage situated in a picture postcode setting overlooking a lake is a must view for any buyer looking for a character home with the peace and serenity which accompanies waterside living, It is ideally situated in a highly prized conservation area bordering Worthington Lakes and Haigh Plantations and as the name suggests enjoys a lovely outlook to the front across a lake as well as backing directly onto greenbelt countryside. Built in an Italianate style of 1857-62, the cottages are listed as of special architectural or historic interest. A big part of the appeal of these lovely homes is their quirky nature, layout and gardens, even the approach to the terrace along a tree lined un-made road adds to the character. 12 Lakeside Cottages is one of only a handful of property on the lane which is semi-detached and therefore it is not only a little larger than average but also has the added benefit of parking for up to 2 cars at the side. There is a pleasant entrance hallway with solid wood floors continuing through into the living room which features an open fireplace with cosy wood burner. There is a separate kitchen offering a range of hand made solid wood wall, base and drawer units incorporating a cooker, dishwasher and Belfast sink and has enough space to fit a dining table and chairs. The upper floor has two good sized bedrooms with the largest enjoying lovely views over the lake and a good-sized bathroom which is much larger than you usually find in a cottage and has a four-piece suite comprising a bath and separate shower cubicle. Externally there is a private enclosed yard, with working outdoor WC and an interesting terraced garden beyond. Other highlights include gas central heating, full double glazed hardwood sash windows and fitted plantation shutters. The property is handy for the motorway and local shops with a Post Office and convenience store within walking distance as well as the vibrant village of standish being only a 15-20 minute walk away. Internal inspection is highly recommended to fully appreciate this property's character, charm and outstanding location. We are advised that the property is Leasehold and the Lease Term is 999 Years From 12 May 1908. Council tax band is B.
