Full DetailsFULL DESCRIPTION If you are looking for a semi-rural home or weekend retreat in a delightful countryside setting, then this is certainly worth viewing. This Grade II listed semi-detached cottage occupies a great position up on the Pennine hillside between the villages of Slaithwaite, Marsden and Meltham. Along with the adjoining barn conversion, it underwent a full programme of renovation and modernisation back in 2002 transforming the buildings from their former run-down state, into the very desirable homes you see today. 'The Cottage' is full of character and charm with exposed beams, stonework, quirky features, multi-fuel stove, and enjoys some fabulous far reaching views over the surrounding countryside. It comes with two off road parking spaces, a small cottage garden to the front, and a much larger garden at the rear with sizeable paved patio and garden shed.
