Welcome to the delightful Dimple Cottage...
Will you be the next lucky owner to be a part of this buildings 300 year history?
A Sense Of History - ( ) - Looking for character?....well this unique stone cottage has it by the bucket load! Vaulted ceilings, impressive stone fireplaces, sash windows, decorative arched doors, original beams.... the list goes on!
The history of this 300 year old property is as interesting as the house that stands today. Built with goodwill and charity in mind by the local church, this stone cottage was originally an Almshouse where it provided shelter and care to the poor and those in need. Attached to the restaurant next door only by a stone archway at the side, this two bedroom house is surprisingly spacious with four receptions and a walled courtyard garden which was alive with birdsong when we visited. For those of you who like to stretch your legs or when four legged friends needs their walk, then Delph reservoir is right on your doorstep.
Step Inside - Push the gate open to this double fronted cottage,and prepare to be wowed. Shelter under the canopy before stepping inside, into the reception hall where you're met with the surprising and impressive grand proportions of the vaulted ceiling and sweeping barley twist staircase. So much more than just an entrance hall, this room is warm and welcoming and currently used as a second lounge, although you could you this space in a number of ways and with a roaring fire its somewhere you'll want to linger. Continue straight ahead through a gorgeous arched door and emerge into a fabulous lounge! Yet another surprising room, not only due to the size but most of all the original large inglenook fireplace, reminding you of the age and history of this incredible cottage. Double doors, with ornate arched detailing, lead you into the conservatory. This is where you'll get the perfect view of all the birds that visit this courtyard garden. Return back through the lounge and turn right into the fourth reception room, used as a dining room, this is another well proportioned room with plenty of space for all the family to gather round for Sunday lunch. Follow us through to the chef's quarters... a rustic style kitchen which is spacious, practical and characterful with a flagged floor, storage units with arched detailing to echo the doors throughout the property and a range style cooker. Retrace your steps through the entrance reception and follow us upstairs to the galleried landing. The feeling of space and light is simply fabulous and unusual for such an old cottage, although if you needed a third bedroom there may be potential to add a mezzanine here to provide you with that extra space upstairs. Both bedrooms are luxuriously large with vaulted ceilings, beams and decorated in a charming vintage style. The master has a double aspect with a gorgeous window seat....the perfect spot to take a moment to yourself with a good book. At the end of the landing a huge bathroom awaits. Tiled in white with a green accent tile, this bright bathroom continues the cottage charm you'll find throughout this home. A luxurious roll top bath invites you to put life on pause for an hour, but if you're in a rush there's a separate shower too.
