Smithy Croft is a delightful detached period cottage property dating back to Circa 1825 occupying a pleasant position in the picturesque and highly desirable Pendleside village of Fence and abutting open fields. Over recent years the property has been refurbished and now has a very contemporary feel with underfloor heating yet retains much of its original cottage charm with exposed stone work walls, mullion windows, beamed ceilings and spacious rooms.
As you enter the property there is an impressive hallway with original stone pillar, beamed ceiling and return oak staircase to the first floor. You step into the lounge where there is a cast iron wood burning stove set into a stone feature fireplace with timber mantel and stone hearth, mahogany flooring and beamed ceiling, through to a spacious dining room again with mahogany flooring and second wood burning stove set in an impressive stone feature fireplace. The kitchen houses an impressive range of oak fitted base and wall units with marble work surfaces and splashbacks, fully integrated appliances, island unit with five seater breakfast bar looking out over the garden to the rear and fields beyond.
At first floor level there is a landing area with an interesting seating area, four double bedrooms, the master having a three piece en-suite shower room and an impressive house bathroom with a four piece suite in white comprising feature bath, vanity unit, low level wc and separate walk in shower.
Externally there is off road parking for two vehicles and a detached garage. To the rear for those who enjoy the al-fresco style of living there is an impressive cooking and entertaining area with dual barbecue and pizza oven with preparation area.
This is a truly superb detached period cottage property with a contemporary feel and in our opinion requires an internal inspection for the size and quality to be fully appreciated.
