Ahhh, the joys of living in the beautiful countryside on the edge of the Forest of Bowland.  Words can hardly describe this picturesque setting so close to charming Longridge and the old Roman village of Ribchester.  It's such a wonderful rural setting yet a short walk to a nice pub and sitting directly on a bus route with a post box right across the road.  Homes don't become available for purchase in this area very often so the selection is often limited if one is looking for a pastoral setting close to modern amenities.  
This well presented cottage is situated on the outskirts of Ribchester, a village steeped in history and with local amenities including, shops, schools, restaurants and visitor attractions. It's also close to the historic market town of Longridge where, from Longridge Fell, it's possible to see the Welsh Mountains, the Isle of Man, Ingleborough and the Loud Valley and enjoy the many wonderful walking trails in the area.  Its a setting that people take holidays to visit and enjoy and makes a wonderful place to call home.  
Set amidst this beauty is this charming terraced cottage on a lovely country lane.  To the ground floor the accommodation briefly comprises: Entrance vestibule with new front door allowing natural light to stream through the entry foyer into the lounge with feature wood burning stove and a nice sized dining kitchen.  There's plenty of storage space in this kitchen because the washer and dryer have been located elsewhere.  This home is bright and cheery because of the brand new UPVC double glazed windows installed throughout the home.  
To the first floor there are two double bedrooms and a four piece family bathroom. Externally, the property boasts beautifully maintained front and rear gardens with stunning open views to the rear. There's a large and attractive stone outbuilding currently used as a utility room with electric and water and a window but could potentially be used as a study, studio or workshop, and a 26' Stone garage. While there is no access to the back garden directly from the house, which is just how these cottages were built, neighbours have added extensions and doors to the back from the ground floor.  A better and less expensive option here is to add a door and stairs from the second bedroom to the back garden.  At present the back garden is accessed with just a bit of exercise but there is a small shed so the lawn mower and gardening tools can always be close at hand.
