Lancashire country cottage

Another cute country cottage for you today. Detached, obviously. With garden, obviously. 
Bank Well Cottage (above and below), in the Lancashire market town of Carnforth, has three bedrooms upstairs, two reception rooms, kitchen, and bathroom downstairs.
It's pretty tired and dated looking and I do wonder what that floor covering is hiding:

The garden is a bit odd too - basically you've got a lovely little garden behind the house and then a plot that sort of wraps itself around other houses - and an "allocated" parking space about 50yards further on.

However, it's a sweet cottage, with views over the golf course, and some lovely original features.

Carnforth itself is a pretty town - five miles from Morecambe and Lancaster. It's railway station was the setting for Lean's 'Brief Encounter'.

If it was me - and I do like to daydream about what I'd change on each property I pick for 'Wreck', I'd rebuild that kitchen/bathroom extension (or just knock the two rooms together) as one bigger kitchen, and move the bathroom upstairs to that daft little bedroom in the middle.
I might even open up the dining room and create one big kitchen/dining room. What do you think?

It's on the market through Hackney & Leigh at £265k. Details and more pictures here.
