Nestled to this little known hamlet, located near to Blackmoorfoot Reservoir to the outskirts of Linthwaite with only four terraced cottage properties, is this beautifully presented, stone-built, four bedroomed, end terraced cottage. Formally two cottages, this Grade II listed property provides 'one off' style accommodation, which may prove suitable to the expanding family buyer. Set near a farm, along a farm track, to this peaceful, rural location, and being within a short distance of recommended local schooling, various walks and having lovely views to both front and rear elevations, over surrounding countryside, this family home is only a ten minute walk from Blackmoorfoot Reservoir, known locally for dog walking and bird watching. Internally, the property offers entrance hall, study / utility room, open plan lounge with wood burning stove, dining kitchen, ground floor double bedroom, and, to the first floor, there are three further double bedrooms and house bathroom.
