Full DetailsINITIAL DESCRIPTION This has to be one of the most comprehensive renovation projects we have seen for quite a while! Apart from its basic structure, Potter's Cottage is brand new in every other way. It has also been extended and now offers an absolutely superb family home with exceptional quality fixtures and fittings, and is finished to a high standard throughout. It occupies a generous plot high on the hillside above Slaithwaite with stunning panoramic views. It comes with newly landscaped gardens, extensive parking, a large garage, and option to take on the rental of the adjoining paddock.
ABOUT POTTER'S COTTAGE Having undergone such a comprehensive renovation, this is like walking into a brand new home. It was taken right back to the basic structure of the original building before starting from scratch with the internal build and adding a double storey extension to the south westerly elevation. Consequently, it now feels like a newly built property with just a hint of history. It occupies a sizeable triangular plot up on the hillside at Pole Moor with tremendous views, particularly from the large expanse of glazing to the living/dining kitchen which offers southerly views far across the Merrydale valley towards West Nab on Pennine hills above Meltham. As the current owners intended to live in the property themselves, the interior is finished to a particularly high standard with no expense spared on the stylish fixtures and fittings. The accommodation briefly comprises reception hall with w.c. off, sitting room, snug/playroom, a substantial living & dining kitchen, first floor landing, master bedroom with en suite shower room, 3 further double bedrooms and house bathroom. It has underfloor heating to the whole of the ground floor and to the bathroom and en suite shower room, oak internal doors with modern ergonomic handles, brushed chrome switches and sockets, and a 6 camera CCTV system.
Externally, a pair of entrance gates on the Laund Road side of the house open to a large driveway which provides parking for several vehicles. There is a substantial detached garage with electrically operated door, ample garden areas which are mainly lawned, a large stone flagged terrace in front of the living/dining kitchen, and pathway leading to the front entrance door on the easterly side. The whole is enclosed by dry stone walling with the exception of the southerly boundary which has a timber fence beyond which is a paddock of approximately 0.45 acre which you have the option to rent from the Dartmouth Estate at a current annual rent of £350.
