Our 17th Century 2 bedroom cottage is filled with an abundance of character benefitting its quaint style and traditional charm. Offered to the market located in a village location, with two bedrooms, one with basic ensuite provisions, living room, dining kitchen, utility room, porch and shower room. A stand alone single garage provides off road parking facilities with a front garden and timber shed behind the garage.
Offered to the market for the first time in 100 years, this long standing cottage has been lovingly owned by the same family and now provides a unique opportunity to start a fresh story with new owners. With traditional features which includes a wooden beam from an old ship, the current owners inform us the property dates back to the 1600's.
Requiring a project of modernisation, the cottage does include a new boiler and has a shower room to the ground floor and sink and toilet to the first floor. With reconfiguration to the upstairs, it may be possible to have three bedrooms and previously the family recall a time when it had open fireplaces in both reception rooms.
Externally the property has a detached single garage accessed via a private residential lane with a large timber shed positioned behind, and to the front of the property sits a low maintenance flagged garden with two sets of wrought iron gates.
Kirkburton is a village with a whole host of well regarded amenities and a local co-operative store for all essential needs. With a health centre and dentist all within comfortable walking distance, the cottage also sits closely to the village library.
ENTRANCE PORCH With door to the side, the cottage invites you in through a porch, a great station to decloak before continuing in to the main property.
SITTING ROOM The sitting room with gas fire has windows to the front and rear elevation and has beamed architecture. Stairs lead to the first floor and access to the kitchen is gained at the back of the room.
DINING KITCHEN With a basic range of cabinets, the kitchen overlooks the front and side of the property and has space for a dining table. With beamed architecture and a traditional window seat, the room has a Cornish stone fireplace with gas fire. The Vendors advise us this was an open fireplace, opened up again, it would look truly lovely and in keeping with the appeal of the cottage.
UTILITY ROOM/BOOT ROOM A rear entrance to the property brings you into the utility room which is also a great station to use as a cloakroom given its generous dimensions. With a stable door, the entrance faces the timber shed and passage way to the garage.
SHOWER ROOM With basic provisions, the shower room is partially tiled and includes a wash basin with pedestal and low level w.c.
LANDING With split landing, the carpeted stairs lead to the two bedrooms.
MASTER BEDROOM With functioning toilet facilities, the large bedroom could easily incorporate a larger en-suite shower room. With windows to the front elevation, the room has a wooden panelled ceiling.
BEDROOM TWO This incredibly large bedroom could be converted into two bedrooms with windows established currently to both elevations. (subject to usual constraints)
EXTERIOR The front garden is designed to accommodate a vehicle through the double wrought iron gates. Low maintenance with stone flags, the cottage garden is a blank canvas waiting to be adorned with floral arrangements and garden seating.
GARAGE The single garage forms part of a double detached arrangement of which only the garage to the left hand side is for the sole use of Redfearn Cottage. The garage is accessible down a private residential lane and a pedestrian pathway leads to the rear entrance of the property.
