DREAM HOME SHOWS SIGNS OF A REAL LABOUR OF LOVE
Quaint cottage would make an ideal first time buy... Stephanie Bell reports
THIS charming former labourer’s cottage, which once served the Tweskard estate, is full of character and would make a dream first home.
Brook Cottage is a quaint, red brick semi, sitting in a superb location, with wonderful walks nearby and easy routes to the city centre.
The property has been sympathetically modernised in recent years to retain the beauty of its unique cottage-style character and is beautifully presented throughout.
The accommodation includes a lounge, kitchen/diner, two bedrooms and a bathroom, all finished to a very high standard.
You enter into a reception hall which has a solid oak wooden floor and two built-in storage cupboards, plus a cloaks area.
The lounge is a bright, good sized room with dual aspect windows and it opens into a separate study area.
It is beautifully finished, with a solid oak floor and a cast iron, wood burning stove set in a brick recess with slate hearth.
A good sized kitchen is bright and modern, with white units topped with granite and comes with a built-in double Hotpoint oven, four ring gas hob and integrated fridge freezer.
Glazed display units add a cottage-like feel to the room and there is more than enough room for dining. A solid oak floor gives a rich finish to what is another delightful room.
The bathroom makes quite a statement, with fantastic green feature tiling showcasing the white suite, which includes a pedestal washhand basin and panelled bath with Redring electric shower unit.
The two bedrooms both have great built-in storage cupboards and one also has built-in wardrobes.
Outside there is a delightful patio garden with raised flowerbeds and which backs on to a stream. There is also lighting and an outside electricity supply.
