Description

A most charming and characterful sitting room of good proportions makes a wonderful first impression. One's eyes are immediately drawn to the wonderful, carved stone fireplace standing on a stone hearth with brick inset surround housing a cast iron, log burning stove - a great place to be on a cold winter's night. Light floods in through the charming twin, timber framed, double-glazed window to the front elevation offering a delightful outlook over the village green and most attractive, character properties beyond.

If you are seeking a charming, quintessential English country cottage in the heart of a picturesque yet conveniently located village with peace and tranquillity in abundance, then look no further. Harrison Robinson is excited to bring to market this wonderful, stone built, two-bedroom, cottage, one of only five, delightfully positioned close to St Paul's Church in the centre of this highly regarded, Yorkshire village, once the setting of Emmerdale with 'The Woolpack' located only a short walk away from this desirable cottage property.

Lovingly maintained by the current owners, this charming home is a delightful combination of stunning, original features such as deep window sills, exposed beams and an original stone fireplace blended with a contemporary, 'cottagey' feel. The accommodation briefly comprises a good-sized sitting room with stunning fireplace housing a log burning stove, a large, galley kitchen with country style, fitted kitchen providing ample storage and a large window offers charming views over the generous, private, rear garden and churchyard beyond. To the first floor, one finds a spacious, double bedroom, a good-sized, single bedroom and a well-equipped house bathroom. The property has that charming 'chocolate box' appeal with a pretty fore garden - an ideal spot to sit on a bench and enjoy a cuppa or glass of wine, listening to the charming bird song and enjoying the pleasant view over the village green. To the rear one finds a true oasis of peace and calm - a good-sized garden with a patio area and some established planting - a great spot in which to enjoy al fresco dining in the summer months or just to sit and relax with nothing to disturb your thoughts other than the bird song!

What more can you ask for a stunning countryside location yet within easy commuting distance to both Leeds & Bradford, commuter train links and Leeds/Bradford Airport.
