Town End Cottage is a delightful Grade II listed cottage in the very desirable village of Ravenstonedale.
Ravenstonedale is an unspoilt, picturesque village at the foot of the Howgills in Cumbria. It has two pubs, active Church and Methodist Chapel. Ravenstonedale is an ideal base for exploring on foot or by car. It is situated 7 miles from the Market Town of Kirkby Stephen and 8 miles from Sedbergh with their secondary schools, pubs & restaurants, doctors, dentist and a good range of shops and weekly outdoor market.
The cottage dates from 1751 and retains the quaint charm and many original features that one would expect from a property of this age. The cottage is in good condition and has an oil central heating system and recently updated electric consumer unit. The current owners have recently installed 'Heritage' slimline double glazed sash windows to the rear. The front elevation of the roof is in need of replacement, a reputable local builder has provided a quote which is available by request.
On the ground floor is a good sized sitting room with a multi-fuel stove & original Georgian wall cupboard, a lovely dining kitchen with window to the garden and a downstairs WC/utility room which could have room for a shower if required .Upstairs, there are two large double bedrooms with an en-suite bathroom off the rear bedroom and lovely views over the fields to the hills.
Outside, to the front of the cottage is a pretty border and on road parking. To the rear is a beautiful South East facing classic cottage garden with lawn and borders. There is a boiler house & stone built building with 2 dry store rooms, with light & power.
