Situated within the charming Conservation Area hamlet of Roby Mill, this absolutely enchanting, two-bedroom end terrace stone cottage, dating back to 1829, is brimming with character and charm, lovingly enhanced by the level of craftmanship which can be found throughout. A gem of a find, this Grade II Listed cottage will pull at the heartstrings once you’ve seen it.
Set beyond a low York stone slab wall and frontage, the solid oak door to the stone-built cottage is illuminated by a wall light and has cast iron furniture. The charm offensive starts as you step inside the vestibule which has a ceramic tiled floor and space for cloaks hooks and a mirror.
A pine latch door gives way into the welcoming sitting room with its full height stone and sandstone ingle fireplace and flagged hearth encompassing the log burning stove and accentuated by the recessed downlights overhead and the natural light filtering through the timber sash window to the front. Wall, picture and pendant lighting give evening ambience and there is a television point to the side so no excuse not to sit down and enjoy it all.
A further latch door opens into the splendid dining kitchen having a stone flagged floor covering the two areas and three pendant lighting points suspended above the table space. Stone built stanchions support the decorative oak beam which completes the opening to the kitchen.
This space has been furnished with a bespoke, hand painted range of Culshaw Bell wall and base cabinets with integrated appliances and shaped oak counters atop, incorporating a Butlers enamel sink unit with French style mixer tap set beneath one of the rear windows. Also inset is a Caple four-ring induction hob with canopy extractor fan above, tiled splash back and an oven and grill below. A partially glazed oak door opens to rear garden and, off the dining area, an oak staircase with glazed balustrade turns and rises to the first floor, providing a spacious storage cupboard beneath.
At the top of the stairs, the landing has an access hatch alongside a glazed panel to the ceiling which throws light through from the Velux window in the roof of the boarded loft, which is large enough for a hobby room.
The principal bedroom has two sash windows to the rear which overlook the garden and the church owned grounds beyond. Pendant, wall and recessed downlights draw the eye to the stone detailing on the walls and there is ample space for a selection of clothes storage furniture.
The second of the two double bedrooms has a sash window to the front, a central pendant light and an original sandstone edged fireplace. An original latch door leads into the fully tiled bathroom which is set between the two bedrooms and has an over-bath feature pebble wall as the backdrop to the white suite which comprises a ‘P’ bath with shower and screen above, a copper wash bowl resting on a matching pebble tile vanity cabinet top, and a close coupled w.c. A chrome ladder style heated rail warms the towels and inset downlights showcase the design.
The rear garden is accessed via a right of way passage to a side timber gate which slides across to give way onto the stone flagged sun terrace with space for al fresco dining. Passing the brick-built utility out-house which has power and light, steps rise to the split level and stone-wall retained garden which has hedge and panel fenced boundaries, high-level border planting and is both secluded and tranquil.
Exquisitely finished, the cottage displays so many admirable details and touches throughout which can only be truly appreciated by viewing.
The front garden features a ‘pig stone’ retaining wall, one a only a few left in the area, which forms part of its Grade II Listed status.
