SET IN spacious mature gardens, this four bedroom home has ample scope to be enlarged.
With pleasant views to the rear up to the Cow and Calf rocks and to the front across the valley towards Denton, the 1930s property has a through sitting room, separate dining room, breakfast kitchen with pantry and two garages.
There is a covered entrance with quarry tiled floor and a reception hall with understairs storage and a cloakroom with corner wash basin, wc and coat rail.
The spacious through sitting room is a light and airy space with windows to three sides, the front bay window having stained glass leaded light motifs. There is access to a south-facing loggia overlooking the rear garden, and the room also has a ceiling cornice and stone fireplace with Baxi grate slate hearth, timber mantel and extension plinths.
The dining room has a bay window with a pleasant outlook over the rear garden, ceiling cornice, picture rail and sliding doors to the hallway.
Fitted with a range of cupboards, laminate worktops and a double drainer sink, the breakfast kitchen has an integrated four-ring electric hob and double electric oven with grill, plumbing for a washing machine and laminate flooring.
There is a pantry with fitted shelving and a rear entrance hall containing the floor-mounted, gas-fired central heating boiler.
Upstairs, the landing has an oriel window with splendid views across the valley. The master bedroom is a large through room with windows to three sides including an oriel feature window to the front with stained glass leaded light motifs. It has access to a south-facing rear balcony with views up to the Cow and Calf rocks and a wrought iron balustrade.
There are two further double bedrooms - both having a wash basin and one with a bay window and fitted wardrobe providing ample storage – and a single bedroom with oriel window with stained glass leaded light motifs and a fitted cupboard with shelving.
The bathroom has a panelled bath, wash basin, airing cupboard with cylinder, mirror-fronted medicine cabinet and electric shaver point, and there is a separate half-tiled wc.

The front garden has mature plants, shrubs and a rockery, but the majority of the gardens are to the rear, being south-facing and enclosed by mature hedging. The latter includes a block-paved patio and the loggia feature which leads to a raised rose garden, beyond which is a lawn with rockery and borders. Towards the rear of the garden is a caged soft fruit garden, further soft fruit bushes and a poultry run.
