    About this property

    • Bolton River Cottage is an attractive stone built property with later extension which is ready for modernising. This charming detached cottage with traditional pantiled roof has a private setting tucked off the road behind a private hedge. The accommodation is all on a single level and is set off a wide entrance hallway with access directly onto a private wraparound garden bordering an idyllic riverside setting.

      The front door leads into a wide light-filled entrance hallway. To the right up two steps the original stone cottage is accessed. This currently comprises the kitchen, adjoining dining room and sitting room. The sitting room is accessed from the dining area and enjoys south and west facing views with a door leading out to the garden and terrace. The later extension extends from the entrance hall and includes three bedrooms, two with built in storage and a principal bedroom suite with en suite bathroom and built in cupboards. A family bathroom, cloakroom and separate utility sit alongside.

      Linked to the house through the utility room is a car port and potting shed with additional parking to the side of the cottage.

    I just love the setting of Bolton River Cottage, it is magical. The cottage has been owned for 47 years by the same family, opportunities like this are very rare and it has so much potential for its next owner.
