Situated just down the road from the lovely village of Galgate and tucked away down a private road you will find Hampson Cottages. With easy access to both the A6 and M6, it's a brilliant and convenient location for commuters.
Galgate has a host of local amenities including a handy Spar shop and two public houses.
Wander down the stone path through the gate and notice the laid to lawn front garden just below this beautiful cottage. A handy vestibule awaits, perfect for storing your muddy shoes and coats before entering the hallway via the part glazed internal door.
Once inside, the character of this wonderful home starts to show. A staircase sits to the left leading up to the bedrooms and bathrooms, whilst to your right gives access to the front facing living room and ground floor rooms beyond.
Ground floor rooms
As you step into the gorgeous and cosy living room, you'll immediately notice the attractive, exposed stone wall and fireplace along with beautiful stone flags to the floor. Sitting proudly in the inglenook is a multi fuel burner - perfect for those winter nights to cosy up in front of.
Head toward the rear of the home and to your left find under stairs storage, ideal for your vacuum cleaner, cleaning products etc. Turn to your right and be prepared to be wow'd. This stunning cottage comes with a truly wonderful country style kitchen/diner. Skylights allow an abundance of natural light within the extension to the rear, a perfect area to dine and entertain friends and family. French doors lead out to the rear garden, imagine bringing your garden inside during the warmer months.
The kitchen itself is packed with character features once more, including an inglenook fireplace where the Rangemaster stove sits. Plenty of cabinetry is afforded along with a handy island to the centre, offering a space to sit around with a brew, whilst having a catch up with friends. The wood preparation surfaces blend perfectly with the country style units as well as the ever popular and stylish Belfast sink.
You'll no doubt find yourself spending a great deal of time in this social area of the home.
Bedrooms and bathroom
Make your way up the stairs to the first floor, where you will find a delightful single room to the rear. Space is available for a single bed or maybe used as an office/study - depending on your needs. This would be perfect as a child's bedroom due to the cute little staircase leading up to a little hideaway. This would be great for storage too!
Next door we have the beautiful and elegant family bathroom, complete with roll top bath, wash basin and toilet. The exposed stone wall is once more present within this bathroom, blending perfectly with the modern yellow and grey decoration to the walls. Two windows provide the natural light source within and a heated towel rail completes the room.
Back out onto the landing space and take a left into the front facing double bedroom on the first floor. Overlooking the front garden this room is spacious, light and bright. Plenty of room is available for a double bed and furniture to suit and would be perfect as a teenager's get away.
Continue on the landing space up to the second floor via the staircase once more and find yourself in the private master bedroom. What a delightful and inviting room this is. There are beautiful exposed beams to the ceiling along with skylights allowing lots of natural light within. It works so well with the light and neutral decoration. An abundance of space ensures you have a luxurious feel in here, enough for a king size bed. Cleverly the space in the eaves now houses bespoke wardrobes and further storage.
The en-suite shower room is stylishly tucked away behind opaque glass bricks. This ultra modern en-suite fits perfectly within this character filled master bedroom.
Just outside the French doors from the kitchen/diner is the private and low maintenance rear garden, perfect for entertaining guests during the summer months. Room for relaxing garden furniture, table and chairs. Pebbled borders surround Indian sandstone flags, leading up to the arched entrance and exit to the far end.
Beyond the stone arch and wooden gate is access to the communal service road. Here you can get back round to the front of the cottages. There is even additional land belonging to 5 Hampson Cottages. With a little landscaping you could have a wonderful area to sit out and soak up the glorious views over the farmer's fields.
