A beautiful, unique period property, combining stunning architectural features and country cottage atmosphere with a surprising amount of space and light. Situated in a picture-book village in an area of outstanding natural beauty, five minutes off M6 and a mile from station with regular 55 min trains to Manchester. No chain.

Originally an eighteenth-century detached house, Moss Cottage is now at one end of a terrace of three, with huge open plan third storey stretching over next door, and an extension behind. Features include salt cupboard, finely carved sandstone fireplace and mullion windows, beams, oak parquet and original wide-plank flooring. Recently-fitted breakfast kitchen and bathroom, plus parlour, dining room, master bedroom with fitted wardrobe, second bedroom, and open-plan top level, where the timber construction of the house, complete with mason’s mark, is strikingly exposed. This level has lovely views of the Yorkshire dales to one side and Warton Crag to the other. A guest bedroom, sitting room, and two studies currently occupy the space. It would also make a great studio.

The property has a large stone-built attached store room, an attic, under-floor storage area, and GCH. There is a private mature side garden with lawn, patio and deck, surrounded and terraced with ancient stonewalls. The cottage is presented in polished period character with antique furniture throughout, but also has all modern amenities such as modern bathroom, power shower, fitted kitchen, dishwasher, etc.

Located in the historic heart of Warton, home of George Washington's ancestors, two miles from M6 J35, and under a mile from Carnforth (which boasts a hub train station, two supermarkets and all amenities). The village itself has an excellent primary school, shop/post office, two pubs, a riding school and good bus service. It lies near the Cumbria/Lancashire border in Silverdale-Arnside area of outstanding natural beauty. Warton Crag, rising behind the house, is a nature reserve with famous views of Morecambe Bay, Lake District and Yorkshire Dales, flower meadows, limestone pavement and bluebell woods. Leighton Moss, a premier RSPB reserve where you can hear bitterns boom, is a lovely walk away over the crag.

The house is just down from the church, almost oposite the Weir, a historic piece of common land, now a children's playground with plenty of space for football, and sheltered by old horsechestnut trees. The Wier is overlooked by the famous Malt Shovel Inn, a which serves a gourmet menu you won't find the equal of anywhere in the Siverdale peninsula.

Towards the back of the house, a large bonnet-style window floods the room with light and gives stunning views over apple trees towards Warton Crag and the yews and tower of the church. The floor space here is exceptional, and there is a feeling of space unusual in a cottage , as the ceiling peaks at an airy three metres. There are two large velux windows, painted floorboards, and fitted bookshelves. Sofa and chairs in the sitting room area, desks and bookcases in the studies. Child's bed (which we can remove if prefered).
