Occupying a wonderful location, being nicely set back from Middlewood Road at the end of a long driveway and with large, delightful gardens and positioned next to the Middlewood Way Bridle Path, we're sure that the sale of Station House is bound to catch the imagination, particularly if it's peace, quite, character and countryside that you are searching for.
Originally the Station Master's house for the old colliery railway track, the house represents an amazing opportunity not to be missed having been sympathetically brought back to life over the last few years with great effect whilst still retaining its original characteristics.
As you enter the property, there is an enclosed porch and this in turn leads through to a lovely hallway with decorative quarry tiled floor. There is a comfortable lounge with period style slate fireplace and cast iron wood burning stove and this opens into a dining room with feature fireplace and original built-in storage cabinet. The kitchen has a good arrangement of cream units finished with a quarry tiled floor and in turn there is a rear porch, utility room and store.
To the first floor, there is a lovely landing with skylight and two main bedrooms, both of good size and the second bedroom with a cast iron feature fireplace. The landing also provides a staircase leading to the two excellent attic rooms. The bathroom has a white classical style suite.
Outside, and as mentioned, there is a long driveway with good parking, 2 timber construction storage sheds and large delightful mature gardens with lawns, mature trees and bushes making for a beautiful setting.
