A beautiful stone built, Georgian, attached cottage situated in the heart of the vibrant and well connected village of Burton-In-Kendal. Recently refurbished and modernised throughout, the accommodation at Laurel Bank Cottage has been re-planned and finished to a high standard. To the ground floor, the neat hallway leads to two generous reception rooms and further into the L shaped breakfast kitchen and a great separate utility room with external access into the courtyard behind. Upstairs, there are two double bedrooms of good proportions and a modern house bathroom. Outside, the neat courtyard and low maintenance garden provide a private and peaceful escape with plenty of potential for creating an urban garden. Practically there is also an outbuilding which is ideal for extra storage space and to the front, the gravel driveway provides parking for two vehicles.
Pleasantly located in the centre of the thriving rural community of Burton-In-Kendal, which boasts a good range of local amenities including a post office, local pub, store and just a short stroll away, the popular Burton Morewood Primary School. For those travelling further afield, both the M6 junction 33 and 34 a are short drive away and Carnforth train station, providing quick access to the West Coast mainline train station at Lancaster, is just a 10 minute drive away.
Laurel Bank Cottage will appeal to a range of buyers including small families, working couples and those looking for a gentler pace of life for retirement, especially with the added appeal of immediate vacant possession.
