Tucked away just off the centre of one of Lancashire's prettiest villages via a cobbled packhorse bridge, erected in the 15th century, which crosses the River Yarrow this extended and recently refurbished two bedroom riverside cottage offers a surprising amount of living accommodation that perfectly blends traditional features with contemporary style to create an inviting and timeless home. To the front of the property there is a walled flower and shrub garden with a flagged pathway to the front door and it has the unusual feature (this close to the village centre) of a 2/3 car driveway that leads to a detached brick built garage with up-and-over door. To the rear is a charming cottage garden with cobbled area, vegetable plot and flagged seating area alongside the boundary wall that overlooks the river and Town Road. The accommodation briefly comprises of a entrance hallway with a staircase rising to the first floor and a pine panelled door that opens into the large lounge featuring ceramic tiled flooring and an attractive ingle fire place with beamed mantle and log burning stove resting on the flagstone hearth. A door gives way to the recently refurbished dining kitchen to the rear of the property and has been fitted with a range of painted, Shaker style wall and base units with a oak work surface and a built in dishwasher plus spaces for a range-style cooker, a larder style fridge freezer. A walk-in under-stairs pantry provides additional storage. There is a rear hallway leading to an extremely useful utility/boot room with complementary kitchen units and plumbing for an automatic washing machine, space for a tumble dryer plus an extra freezer. The bathroom has been recently renovated to a very high standard and offers a sense of luxury and exclusivity. It comprises a roll-top claw-foot bath, one and a half size step in shower cubicle, pedestal wash hand basin and high-flush w.c with a chrome combined radiator and heated rail. On the first floor are two spacious, double bedrooms - one overlooking the pretty lane to the front and one with a low level window taking in the cottage garden and river views to the rear - the former having a built-in wardrobe and loft access point and both having pendant lighting points. Croston has much to offer those who love good food and drink, plus some excellent shops and this charming cottage is simply a short walk away from it all.
