Nestled at the head of probably one on the most captivating cobbled streets in West Lancashire is the absolutely charming Grade II Listed cottage. This quaint rural cottage resides peacefully next to the local church in the heart of Croston Village, steeped in local history and dating back to the 17th Century and has been lovingly cared for and modernised by the current owners. The picturesque setting of this delightful home is as charming as the beautifully presented living spaces - and it is rare to find such a combination in one home. Accommodation highlights include a dining entrance hall, with stone flagged flooring, large stone Inglenook fireplace and stairs leading to the first floor, a recently fitted galley style breakfast kitchen with modern units, having integrated appliances including oven, hob, extractor, fridge, freezer and dishwasher – with tiled flooring completing the country cottage aesthetic. There is also a good sized bright and light lounge featuring a further Inglenook fireplace housing a wood burning stove. Wooden flooring and window shutters complete the rooms, whilst access to the patio terrace is also from the lounge. Stunning and premium sash windows have been added to the property at great expense to further increase the premium feel of this character home. On the first floor there are two well-proportioned family bedrooms. The master bedroom features two windows, one overlooking the church and the other with views towards the River Yarrow. The second bedroom is again a light and bright room and is of a good size. The family bathroom includes a gorgeous three-piece suite in white with low level wc, vanity wash hand basin and a panelled bath with centre console and a shower over. Externally there is private and secure terrace to the side of the property, with stone flooring, and direct access to Church Street. Croston Village, and its many charming local amenities, is undoubtedly one of the prettiest villages in Lancashire - oozing with history, charm and the quaint feel of a village of days gone by. The village itself is highly desirable as some of the area's best and most sought-after schools are based here and demand for entrance is high. Close to motorway networks, this quintessentially English village must be inspected to be appreciated.
