Full DetailsDESCRIPTION Magnificent Victorian Mill Owner's Residence and Gate Lodge
Occupying a Commanding Position within
Gardens & Grounds of over 2 Acres
'Cellars Clough House' is a fine example of a residence built for a wealthy Victorian gentleman choosing to live in the lush surroundings of beautiful gardens and grounds with the River Colne meandering alongside its lower boundary and stunning views across the valley. At that time, he would have also been able to clearly see his mill (Cellars Clough Mill) in the bottom of the valley.
This fabulous detached residence offers a staggering amount of accommodation amounting to almost 5000sq.ft. plus the gate lodge and outbuildings. The property is full of period features including high ceilings, some with intricate plasterwork, ornate coving, deep skirting boards and architraves, beautiful internal doors some of which still have the original door furniture, sash windows, cast iron radiators, impressive fireplaces, and a staircase with ornately carved newel posts and balustrade rises to the first floor with plenty of natural light provided courtesy of the half landing feature window.
The self-contained 1 bedroom detached Gate Lodge is perfect for a relative, guest accommodation, holiday let, etc
A gated entrance gives way to a sweeping driveway which provides access initially to the Gate Lodge and then continues around passing the rear of the main house and on round to the impressive front entrance before it carries on round into the cobbled courtyard where you can gain access to the outbuildings. The stunning well established gardens and grounds amount to over 2 acres and comprise formal gardens, extensive stone terrace immediately in front of the house from where you can sit and take in fabulous views, woodland areas, pathways winding through the more informal lower gardens which lead on to the former tennis lawn, and down to the riverside areas.
Cellars Clough House is within a reasonable walk from Marsden village centre which offers a good range of shops and restaurants, railway station catching the trans-Pennine trains, and canal side towpath which provides pleasant walks up to the Tunnel End Visitor Centre, or down to Slaithwaite. If you prefer a more challenging terrain, then there is access to some fabulous Pennine walks via numerous public footpaths.
This is also an excellent base for those who commute on a regular basis to any of the surrounding major conurbations such as Manchester, Leeds, Wakefield and Sheffield, having good links to the M62 and M1 motorways.
