Rochdale Observer - - NORDEN CRICKET CLUB PICTURE SPECIAL -

HIS is a sim­ply stun­ning and ex­tremely spa­cious semi de­tached stone cot­tage, dat­ing back from the 1820s and nes­tled in an idyl­lic semi-ru­ral lo­ca­tion right in the heart of Ash­worth Val­ley.

But you’re not far from civil­i­sa­tion ei­ther, the vil­lage ameni­ties of Nor­den are right by and Rochdale and Bury town cen­tres, and the mo­tor­way net­works, are all within easy reach.

In­side the gor­geous lounge is full of char­ac­ter with orig­i­nal ceil­ing beams, a fea­ture stone fire­place with a multi fuel stove and a stone walled re­cess. This is a room to snug­gle up in!

The din­ing room over­looks the rear gar­den and has stone walling to one wall and pa­tio doors to the out­side. There’s a liv­ing flame elec­tric fire and stairs to the first floor.

The bright, coun­try style break­fast kitchen has an ex­ten­sive range of fit­ted wall and base units and stun­ning solid wood floor­ing. In­te­gral ap­pli­ances in­clude an in­duc­tion hob, AEG dou­ble oven, fridge, dish­washer and sink unit.

It’s plumbed for an au­to­matic wash­ing ma­chine but there’s also a util­ity room with fit­ted base units and the cen­tral heat­ing boiler.

A study com­pletes the ground floor ac­com­mo­da­tion.

Up­stairs the land­ing, with a tongue and groove ceil­ing with spot­lights, leads to the three dou­ble bed­rooms with stun­ning coun­try­side views.

Bed­room one has a fea­ture fire­place. It’s also got fit­ted wardrobes, a walk in wardrobe and roof void ac­cess.

The in­cred­i­ble sec­ond bed­room over­looks the rear and has a dec­o­ra­tive fire­place, a fea­ture brick wall and a free­stand­ing Queen Anne bath with a shower hose set be­side a win­dow over­look­ing rolling coun­try­side.

Bed­room three over­looks the side of the house.

The stun­ning bath­room has a tongue and groove floor and a tiled panel bath with shower taps, with match­ing splash backs, hand basin in a van­ity unit and wc. There is built in stor­age and a beamed ceil­ing with spot­lights.

Out­side there are beau­ti­ful coun­try gar­dens all around, with breath­tak­ing views and a shale pa­tio area.

A fur­ther rented rear gar­den is avail­able for £200 per year which must hold poul­try. A de­tached garage is on a sep­a­rate site.

This is a mag­nif­i­cent ro­man­tic cot­tage, spa­cious enough for a grow­ing fam­ily and with dou­ble glaz­ing and oil cen­tral heat­ing.
