Nestled at the top of a leafy rural lane, cross a cattle grid and continue past a picturesque pond before pulling through electric gates to arrive at Lostock Hall Cottage, where there is plenty of parking.

A tranquil arrival home, birdsong resonates amongst the trees as you step out of the car. Admire the beautifully maintained, landscaped gardens, attractive stone frontage, and traditional sash windows of this heritage home as you make your way to the front door.

Welcome home

Emerging into the broad and bright entrance hall, oak flooring extends underfoot for a classic feel.

Handsome fitted cabinetry provides plenty of storage in the light and inviting study immediately to the left. Perfect for those working from home, inspiring views extend over the landscaped garden to the front with its mature trees and box hedging.

Next door, traces of antiquity remain in the rustic beam, exposed in the ceiling of the warm and welcoming sitting room, where a log-burning stove crackles invitingly from within its stone and redbrick inglenook surround.

Returning to the entrance hall, light streams in through a wide sash window. Freshen up in the cloakroom, elegantly tiled and furnished with stone wash basin with wall mounted tap, and WC, before continuing through to the family kitchen-diner ahead.

Cook up a feast

Classic, country-style cabinetry provides plenty of storage for your culinary essentials, with an undermounted sink set within the wooden worktops. Appliances include a six-ring gas hob, Smeg cooker with extractor hood, whilst there is room for a fridge-freezer and plumbing for a washing machine.

Beyond the sociable U-shape design of the cabinetry, the kitchen extends into a spacious dining area, where light flows in through French doors opening out to the large patio, perfect for wining, dining and entertaining family and friends in the summer months.

Continue through to the snug lounge, decorated in fresh, contemporary shades and carpeted underfoot. Light flows in through windows to both sides providing a bright and cheerful feel. Cosy and warm, Hive controlled heating features throughout this home.

Rest and refresh

Returning to the entrance hall, take the stairs up to the first-floor landing, where the high ceiling amplifies the light flowing in from the wide window.

Immediately on the left, arrive at bedroom two, a spacious double dressed in warm, soporific tones, and carpeted in cream. Ample storage is available in the wealth of fitted wardrobes, with elevated views from the sash windows over the stone patio and garden below.

Next door, refresh in the family bathroom, tiled in slate grey underfoot and furnished in monochrome style with vanity unit wash basin, WC and bath with overhead shower. Views extend over the box hedging, lawns and trees to the front.

Making your way along the landing, arriving at bedroom three, ahead. Floral feature wallpaper and shades of sage green complement the glorious gardens visible from the sash window, which draws in an abundance of light.

Rest and relax in the master suite, a warm, cosy and welcoming sanctuary. Carpeted in grey underfoot with a wealth of fitted wardrobes, verdant views extend out over the garden.

Freshen up in the ensuite, tiled in earthy tones for a luxurious spa feel, and with ample storage in the fitted furniture which also houses the wash basin and WC. Begin the day with a refreshing spritz beneath the shower, as your towel warms on the heated radiator.
