Full DetailsINITIAL DESCRIPTION A fantastic 4/5-bedroom family home being one of four prestigious properties created from an impressive Victorian mill owner's residence which occupies a commanding elevated position overlooking this nicely tucked away cul-de-sac with tremendous views over the village and far across the valley. It comes with an enclosed garden, parking and garage.
ABOUT 17 FIELDHOUSE DRIVE The property was originally built for George Haigh, owner of the nearby Brook Mill, before it was occupied for many years by the Crowther family who owned many of the mills within the Colne Valley. It was then left empty for a while before a renowned specialist developer took it on and carried out a sympathetic programme of restoration and conversion into four very unique and individual homes. It is located just out of the village up this little-known cul-de-sac accessed from Radcliffe Road. Once at the property, you will see it offers a fair degree of privacy and its elevated position ensures a great feeling of open space with fabulous panoramic views to the front, and over fields and woodland at the rear. Internally, the property offers the perfect combination of contemporary style and traditional splendour with modern kitchen and sanitary ware, along with the period elegance of the main reception room. The accommodation is laid out over four floors with a high spec and stylish finish throughout. It also has a gas fired central heating system, double glazing, and an alarm system. Externally, there is a single garage with power and light, parking at the rear, and an enclosed garden at the front immediately accessible from the dining kitchen with gate out to a rockery and steps down to the lane below.

BEDROOM 5/PLAYROOM 10' 11" x 10' 9" (3.33m x 3.28m) Although this is currently used as a family room, it would make an ideal guest bedroom as there is access across the hall to a shower room. It has a window to the rear, and useful under stairs storage cupboard.

Integrated appliances include dishwasher, larder fridge, twin ovens, microwave, and a 4-ring ceramic hob with a 'floating' extractor hood over.

BEDROOM 2 20' 0" x 15' 8" (6.1m x 4.78m) This is almost as big as the master bedroom and has an array of exposed roof timbers with three velux roof windows providing ample natural light. There is access to plenty of eaves storage space, and there are two recessed display niches with enhancer lighting.
OUTSIDE There is a single garage with power and light, and parking at the rear. The French doors from the kitchen lead straight out onto a good-sized stone flagged patio from where you can sit and enjoy those fabulous views, and beyond the patio is a garden laid with artificial grass all enclosed by stone walls and timber fencing.
