This delightful, mid terraced character cottage is situated in the popular canal village of Shardlow, overlooking fields to the front and enjoying a surprisingly large garden which includes a decked area beside the Trent and Mersey Canal.
The cottage is set back from the road behind a low wall and an entirely gravelled front yard. A diamond patterned quarry tile pathway leads to the front door. The front door opens directly into the front room, currently used as a dining room. This attractive room has a sash window to the front and a period fireplace with a tiled surround. A door opens into the kitchen, with two windows and a door opening out to the rear courtyard. A door to the right leads into a good sized sitting room which features a sash window to the rear, a fireplace with exposed brickwork, and an inset multi fuel burner.
From the kitchen, stairs rise to the first floor. Here there are two double bedrooms of a similar size. One has a period fireplace and a sash window looking out over countryside to the front. The other has a period fireplace and a sash window looking out over the courtyard garden to the rear. There is a large bathrroom on the first floor, with a bath and a separate shower cubicle, and a sash window to the rear.
The grounds of the cottage are far bigger than you might imagine from the front. Immediately behind the house is a large courtyard garden, attractively paved, with a raised ornamental pond. To the rear of the courtyard are the outbuildings, one of which is set up as a utility or laundry room. Through the outbuildings a garden door leads to a large lawned area. At the rear is a right of way path leading past a neighbour’s garden to the canalside, where there is a decked area belonging to the cottage, overhung by a huge weeping willow tree.
