Lancashire Hot Spot

19th century cottage refurbished to the new Duchy standard
19th century cottage in Dunsop Bridge refurbished to the new Duchy standard and let within six weeks.

A 19th century cottage in the heart of Dunsop Bridge is the first to be refurbished to the Duchy’s new quality standard for residential properties. The refurbishment included interior and exterior decoration, and the installation of a new kitchen and ironmongery to accord with the recently introduced Duchy specification.

On completion, Ivy Cottage was let to a new tenant – a young family moving into the area from Bolton by Bowland.

Mum Erica said they are delighted with their new home: “Ivy Cottage is everything we were looking for – a period property with plenty of character, but with a luxurious finish throughout. The attention to detail is first-class and has meant that we can move our furniture straight in to the property without major disruption.”

 “We are delighted to welcome Erica and Matthew to their first Duchy property,” added Head of Rural Christopher Sparrow, “and to Dunsop Bridge and Ivy Cottage in particular. We have committed significant investment to a rolling programme of improvement works over the next couple of years and will be applying the new Duchy standard wherever possible. The Duchy of Lancaster should be synonymous with quality and excellence in all of our properties to let, wherever they may be.”
