“It was the stunning situation of the property which first attracted us to our home here at Rose Cottage,” say the current owners of this secluded character cottage, “quiet and rural yet within easy reach of larger centres and amenities. We really do have the best of both worlds here.”
This is the perfect property for everyday family life and entertaining alike. “We love sharing our home with people close to us,” say the owners, “particularly in the summertime when we often host friends and family for garden parties and barbecues, sitting outside all evening until we can see the stars. In winter, the cosy lounge is a lovely place for intimate gatherings, sitting by the fire chatting over a cup of cocoa.”
Spanning half an acre, the beautiful cottage gardens serve as an extension of the house itself during the warmer months of the year. “It is so peaceful and serene here,” say the owners, “screened by mature trees so very private. In summer, we love to sit outside and take in the spectacular views, with specimen plants and heavy-laden fruit trees growing around us. The grounds are a haven for wildlife too, with various species of animal and bird enjoying the garden as much as we do.”
The position of Rose Cottage has much to offer too, being set in the Lancashire village of Halsall and well placed for local towns and centres. “The rural location of the cottage has allowed us to enjoy an agricultural atmosphere,” say the owners, “taking regular long walks through the surrounding fields. There is also plenty of opportunity for horse riding along the quiet country lanes. Meanwhile, all the excitement and convenience of the city is within easy reach, with Liverpool, Southport and Manchester all close by. We are also close to the well regarded Scarisbrick Hall school, as well as local amenities in the village of Halsall itself.”
Accommodation includes two recpetion room and a conservatory. Breakfast kitchen with a rear porch / boot room. There is a formal entrance but the current owners use the rear for ease.
The first floor has the three bedrooms as well as a family bathroom.
Within the grounds and enclosed behind the gated entrance is parking space as well as a detached garage.
