This detached bungalow is situated in a wonderful location on the Rufford Branch of the Leeds and Liverpool Canal. It is in good habitable condition but would benefit from an extensive programme of modernisation. It sits in a huge plot of over four acres which leads down to a wide canal frontage on the offside bank, giving excellent potential for mooring subject to CRT permission.

The front door opens into an internal porch which in turn opens into a hallway with doors to the sitting room, dining room, bedrooms and bathroom. The spacious sitting room is to the right with a bay window to the front and an open fire. There is a large bedroom to the left with a bay window to the front. Behind this is another bedroom, this being a good sized double with a window to side. The dining room is an internal room behind the sitting room, which benefits from borrowed light from a window into the rear porch. The rear porch is a useful space with glazed doors to the courtyard. It doubles up as a utility room. The kitchen breakfast room is a large room along the right side of the property with a window to the side and another to the rear. The hallway extends to the rear passing a large bathroom on the left with a separate shower cubicle and a window to the side. Beyond this is the master bedroom, a spacious double with a window to right side.

The bungalow is approached via a large concrete driveway. The front garden is laid to lawn with established trees and shrubs. Double gates open to a huge gravelled parking area to the side of the bungalow. To the rear is an enclosed paved courtyard garden. Currently there is no vehicular access to the attached garage at the rear of the property, which is set within the courtyard garden. Behind the garage there is an enclosed chicken run with a timber hen house.

Beyond the gravelled area and hen house the garden continues to a huge level lawn which ends with a pasture fence. Beyond this is grounds widen to form a large paddock which leads all the way down to the canal. There are some substantial outbuildings in this paddock suitable for a variety of uses, or for replacement. The canal frontage is very wide and is on the offside, giving excellent potential for mooring subject to CRT permission.
