Space is available for a fridge freezer, plumbing for a dishwasher and there is a wall mounted television point and a cctv camera. The terracotta tiled flooring has a striking timber patterned inlay and the stable-style timber door with bull’s-eye glass inset opens to the driveway.
Completing the ground floor accommodation, and just off the hall, a latch door opens to the cloakroom which has an opaque side window, ceiling light and is fitted with a two-piece white suite of pedestal wash hand basin and low flush w.c. The walls are tiled to dado height in blue and white and there is coordinating vinyl flooring and a radiator.
The charming, split-level landing with exposed floorboards is lit by two wall lights and has tongue and groove latch doors to each of the rooms.
The principal bedroom overlooks the rear with views across the adjoining farmland and French windows with Juliet balcony to the side overlooking the garden. The part vaulted and beamed ceiling has a pendant light and there is a fitted double wardrobe plus ample space for further furniture.

Set on a peaceful country lane on the edge of the historic village of Newburgh, this charming, extended Grade II Listed cottage dates back to 1809, is brimming with character features and offers a comfortable home within immaculate, established and tranquil cottage style gardens. Accessed via a six-barred timber gate, the pebbled driveway provides parking for three/four cars and leads to an attached single garage with up and over door, power and light, a side door and interior utility room with space and plumbing for white goods and housing the oil-fired central heating boiler. A stone flagged path gives way to the rear of the property and, via a timber gate, the side lawn garden which is enclosed by hawthorn hedges and exquisitely planned and abundantly planted herbaceous borders and island beds of roses. A stone sun terrace provides an ideal spot for vessels of summer bedding plants and, to the far end of the garden, a small orchard of apple and cherry trees and a concrete rendered storage shed measuring 8’ x 10’. For added convenience, there is also an outside tap.
The numerous local facilities include the Newburgh post office with shop and café, a farm shop in Back Lane and the Eden art gallery with first floor eatery. There are some amazing walks along the Leeds Liverpool Canal and through stunning countryside through the Douglas Valley, Ashurst Beacon and breath-taking views from Parbold Hill.
