Good things don’t come in small packages…great things do. Light, bright and brimming with rustic features and chocolate-box-cottage charm, this home emanates warmth and welcome.
Secretly sandwiched between the stone terraces, just by The Village Store on Longsight Lane, you will find this perfectly presented semi-detached stone cottage.
Pass the neatly kept stone border to arrive at the pretty period green front door complete with traditional wrought iron handle and ornamental knocker. Inside, light streams through the lattice-glazed panel and into the lounge.
Step through into the cosy living room. Neutrally decorated walls create an open and bright feel, contrasting against the dark walnut stained timber flooring. The atmospheric wood-burning stove, set on a stone plinth is perfect for chilly winter nights.
Pendant lighting aids the natural light which streams in through the front leaded window, creating a sunny and cheerful space.
Continue ahead into the kitchen, where beneath the stairs, a dainty dining area seats two perfectly (with space for more should you wish to entertain).
To the left, arranged in a handy l-shape are country-style kitchen cupboard and drawer units. Beneath the window is a ceramic sink, with an electric oven and gas hob central to the kitchen units. There's space too for a freestanding fridge/ freezer and plumbing beneath for washing machine.
A stable door leads through to a light and bright conservatory.
The ideal place for curling up with a book or enjoying your afternoon tea. An ornate lantern hangs above the window to illuminate the space.
In the summer months, leave the patio doors open, blurring the boundaries between the outdoors and in.
Take the staircase, dressed in a modern stainless steel spindled bannister, up to the first floor.
To the left is the bathroom, where gleaming white tiles rise up above the sink, WC and bath, topped with a biscuity painted wall colour above. A window is centrally located, spilling light down to illuminate the travertine tiled flooring.
A shower with glazede screen sits above the bath.
Across the way, is the master bedroom, located to the front of the property.
White walls meet with oat coloured carpets. There's plenty space for a double bed and a full set of furniture in this welcoming bedroom.
Opposite, discover a second beautifully decorated bedroom private and peaceful, overlooking the rear garden.
Outside, the garden is a harmony of texture, making so much of the space to hand.
Directly outside the conservatory, a paved patio hosts a collection of potted plants. A well kept lawn is lined with mature plant beds either side stretching down to a timber shed at the bottom.
