8 Oak Cottages

Quirky and charming, this 1 bedroom end terrace character cottage is presented in good order throughout and benefits from a parking space to the front aspect, small rear garden and lovely old outbuilding with potential for a variety of uses.

An alternative option for buyers considering flats, the property is suitable for singles or couples. With close proximity to town centre amenities, this is a great base for days out in the Yorkshire Dales, Forest of Bowland and Lake District, and has very obvious potential as an AirBnB style holiday let investment.

Available with no chain, viewing is highly recommended in order to fully appreciate this unusual and characterful property.
