Agent’s wording:
Dating from circa 1589, this fantastic picture postcode detached cottage is totally unique. It enjoys a wonderful location in Firwood Fold which is a conservation area and marks the birthplace of Samuel Crompton. The cottage is a grade 2 star listed building and has been carefully and sympathetically upgraded to provide the living standards required today in the 21st century and as such blends many original features such as low beamed ceilings and original stone fireplaces with modern if not contemporary fixtures and fittings together with stylish decor.
Unusual for a property like this, there is ample private parking to the side of the property. The gardens are a particularly attractive feature being of a very good size to the rear and side with the property fronting directly on to the village green.
Warmed by gas combi central heating, all windows are double and the property offers somewhat quirky but certainly very appealing and rather spacious accommodation.  The entrance is at the rear of the property, opening into a small hallway, huge lounge, separate dining room with stairs off, fitted kitchen with oven/hob etc, upstairs particularly offers charm and character with polished floor board and heavily beamed sloping ceilings. Landing, a large double, another double and a single bedroom and a white designer suite shower room. 
A rare opportunity to acquire a wonderful three bedroom detached home that is totally unique in a pretty setting.
