FULL DESCRIPTION This fabulous Grade II listed family sized residence enjoys a stunning rural location hidden away down a tree lined driveway on the hilltop above Slaithwaite. It comes with a double garage, extensive parking, and fantastic gardens & grounds amounting to over half an acre. An ideal home for those who are looking for a countryside retreat yet require good access to the M62 motorway and railway network. The property, along with the neighbouring house, was converted from a late 18th Century Pennine farm cottage and barn in the 1990s by renowned local craftsman builders and has more recently been extended to create a third reception room and home office. You will find lots of features, character and charm which blend well with the stylish and contemporary installations, along with hardwood double glazed windows and oil fired central heating, and although this is a rural property, it has good broadband speed provided by EE. We must also mention that there are tremendous panoramic views over the surrounding countryside and Pennine hills beyond.
