Seldom do properties as unique and historical as Skitters Grove come available on the open market in Ashton-in-Makerfield. Tucked away in this little known and secluded location bordering Skitters Wood, this charming 17th century cottage boasts extended living accommodation & large mature gardens that are not overlooked and enjoy sunny south facing aspects. The house has been modernised in recent years and benefits from full double glazing and gas central heating whilst retaining character inside. The ground floor accommodation has been extended and is therefore particularly impressive with two big characterful reception rooms that are bright and sunny with lovely south facing aspects over the fabulous rear garden. The kitchen is another notable highlight - it has been recently refurbished to a very high standard and fitted with a range of quality country style units with complementary working surfaces and under-cabinet lighting and incorporating ceramic sink and drainer with mixer tap, integrated double electric oven, induction hob with glass splash back, stainless steel and glass extractor hood, integrated washing machine and finished with Karndean flooring. Upstairs there are two big bedrooms with fitted robes, vaulted ceilings and exposed original beams plus a large ensuite bathroom.

Outside there are double wrought iron gates leading to a generous paved driveway providing off road parking for several cars leading to the large garage with up and over door, power and light. To the rear there is a beautifully maintained and very private, mature garden with shrubs and trees to borders, many varieties of fruit trees and bushes including: plum, blackberry, gooseberry and damson, expansive lawn area, paved patio, further gravel area, timber panel fencing and timber gated access to side, outside water tap, two outside security lights and a greenhouse.

Viewings are essential to appreciate this charming home on offer.
