Character cottage in ‘Roman village’

This beautifully presented character cottage is approximately 300 years old, but has been virtually rebuilt within the last five years.

Although retaining much of the character and charm of a bygone age, the tasteful and modern interior now offers a cosy lounge with solid oak flooring, a roomy dining kitchen, a downstairs cloakroom, three bedrooms and a five-piece modern bathroom.

The communal courtyard setting may tick all the boxes for a second home purchaser.

There is also a modern garage containing power and parking space.

Located in the heart of the Ribble Valley, with free resident fishing rights on the nearby River Ribble, the cottage is in Ribchester village, which offers a picturesque park with free tennis courts and children’s play area, the Roman Museum, an attractive village pub/restaurant, a village hall and a keen community spirit.

Description alone cannot do this lovely home and setting the justice it deserves.

Viewers will enter through the timber front door into the lounge, which has a limestone fireplace with an open coal effect Living Flame gas fire and solid oak flooring. A door from here goes into the dining kitchen, which contains a comprehensive range of oak fronted wall and base units with contrasting work surfaces.

There is also a stainless steel sink/drainer and mixer tap, a five burner gas hob with re-circulator over and electric oven and integral fridge/freezer, washing machine and dishwasher.

Part-tiled, this room has a York stone flagged floor, understairs storage, a double glazed window overlooking the back of the property and a door to the rear exit hall and downstairs cloakroom.

The York stone flooring is carried through to the cloakroom and the rear hall, the cloakroom having a two-piece vanity unit in white with chrome fittings, while from the rear hall a door leads into the courtyard and garage.

From the landing, the three bedrooms all have double-glazed windows looking out to the front or back of the cottage.

The bath and shower room contains a five-piece suite with bath, a pedestal wash basin and low level flush wc, a fully tiled shower cubicle with thermostatic shower, a chrome heated towel rail and inset spotlights.
