Welcome to The Nook, a detached true bungalow, set down a rural country lane in the village of Cockerham. Hillam Lane is a quiet road, mainly frequented by farmers in tractors or the occasional thrill-seeker, planning on sky diving from the Black Knight Parachute centre.
Surrounded by open fields, The Nook is a more modern built home perfectly suited to families wanting an easy lifestyle yet those that wish to bring up their children in a countryside setting.
Cockerham relishes in family living and has a great sense of community. It may be a small village ( it still has under 800 residents ) but that does not mean it is sleepy. The primary school is highly regarded and the neighbouring community centre is a real social hub, hosting a variety of regular events and classes. Lancaster is just a 5 mile drive away.
Park up to the side of The Nook, there's easily off-street parking for 2 vehicles.
Directly in front of the Nook, there is a large paved courtyard, cross this and enter through the main door into your L-shaped hallway. What you'll love about the Nook, is that every room is set off this light and bright entrance hallway.
Open plan living
Let's begin your viewing with the open plan living room, designed to be social and a place for the family to gather. This is a room which is light and bright, with double glazed windows to three sides.
The main lounge is decorated in neutral shades, it is separated from the kitchen by a stylish breakfast bar. Oak effect flooring flows through the two areas creating a seamless finish.
The kitchen features modern lightly coloured units, complemented by slate grey effect worksurfaces and chunky polished handles. The oven and electric halogen hob are both built in. There is free standing space for other appliances.
The 4 bedrooms
The Nook has 4 bedrooms, all one level - after all this is a true bungalow.
All of the bedrooms are well proportioned - 3 of them are double bedrooms. The spacious master bedroom features built-in wardrobes ( as does bedroom 4 ). It has been attractively decorated with a feature wallpaper to one wall. The view is to the rear looking out towards the fields behind.
The 4-piece family bathroom
The 4-piece bathroom is fully tiled from the floor to ceiling. Relax after a long day in the bath, or if you have been for a run down the country lanes, you'll be appreciative of the wet room, walk-in shower.
The gardens and driveway
Step outside and you have the paved courtyard to the front. To the rear, there is a small enclosed lawned garden and a driveway to the side. The garden backs onto open fields and as such as fabulous views.
Looking for a larger garden? We are informed that the neighbouring farmer is prepared to sell some land ( by separate negotiation )
