IF YOU had to sum up the latest Property of the Week in just one word, ‘quaint’ would capture it perfectly.
Set in the semi-rural Laundry Row in the pretty village of Wortley, this one-bedroom cottage could answer the prayers of any househunter looking for plenty of character and history.
The stone-built mid-terrace dates back to 1765 and was once a laundry house for the 18th-century mansion Wortley Hall.
It has undergone modernisation with a fitted kitchen, conservatory, and a bathroom with separate shower, while still maintaining its period charm.
The spacious living and kitchen area is light and airy, while the upstairs bedroom is good-sized.
Double glazing and central heating are fitted throughout.
The cottage’s conservatory boasts a brilliant view of the well-kept garden, which has a large lawn and mature shrubbery, and comes complete with a summer house.
Its location is in the heart of Wortley village, but the areas of Chapeltown, Stocksbridge and Hillsborough are close by and the M1 is just a short drive away.
