Archer Cottage is a distinctive home dating back to 1926 with many interesting features and the advantage of a decked balcony leading from the dining room and overlooking the garden and fields beyond. Located within walking distance to the centre of Middleton and easy reach of the M60 motorway, the property has a leafy suburban feel. Occupying a third of an acre in total with added development potential, this is a property that must be viewed. Having only had two owners it was built in 1926, Archer Cottage is a property of great distinction and character. Located views towards Limefield Park, the property has a leafy suburban feel with its private garden and decked balcony area.
For several years Archer Cottage was something of a ‘Hidden Gem’ discovered by the current owner who had come to view another property in the area and was immediately intrigued by the unusual look of the house.
Archer Cottage had originally been built for an Army Major, although he never took up residence and it was subsequently owned by the Dodsworth family until the current owners moved there in 1997.
The name of the property is derived from the famous ‘Middleton Archers’ who successfully fathered together against invasion from the Scots in the Battle of Flodden Field in 1513. As a nod to the historical significance of the area, the ‘Middleton Archer’ is depicted in a stained glass above the arched door and is a great talking point for visitors.
Once they were settled in, the current owners undertook an extensive programme of renovation throughout Archer Cottage taking care to preserve all the original features. The original oil heating system was replaced with gas central heating and three small rooms were knocked together to create a large breakfast kitchen.
The renovation of Archer Cottage also unearthed an expected surprise in the shape of an impressive oak plank floor that had been covered up by carpet for most of the life of the property.
Another attractive feature is the exterior balcony, running almost 28 feet across the back of the house and accessed through double doors from the dining room.
The current owners have refitted the two bathrooms to suite the style of the property an in the main bathroom have created a huge space by knocking two rooms together.
Externally, the property has lovely gardens that have been carefully maintained and would be ideal for young children.
