Full Details

FULL DESCRIPTION This well appointed and deceptively spacious 4-bedroom residence forms part of an imaginative conversion of an impressive Grade II listed former church and Sunday school into a selection of uniquely designed homes. It occupies a semi-rural setting on top of Pole Moor with fantastic views and access either down into Slaithwaite where you will find an array of village amenities and a train station, or equal distant is Outlane and then on to Ainley Top where you have access onto the M62 motorway both east and west bound. The property itself is laid out over five levels and would suite a family, a professional couple, or perhaps those who work from home having a second external entrance at lower ground floor level. You could even use the lower ground floor as a granny/teenage annexe. All in all, this property offers a great deal of flexibility thanks to its unique layout. Externally, the property comes with an area of garden to the front, a paved area to the side, and two allocated parking spaces. A paddock of around one third of an acre is also included. It is also worth noting that this is for sale with the benefit of no vendor chain.

ACCOMMODATION 1 The Chapel has the advantage of having access via the grand main entrance door to the front of the building which only serves this and one other residence.

Steps lead down from the sitting area to the lower ground floor entrance door. There are two allocated parking spaces for this property and visitor parking within the car park. There is a small nearby paddock which is also included in the sale.

TENURE Leasehold. The management company owns the freehold and each property owns one equal share of that company, so although it's leasehold, you effectively own one sixth of the freehold.

VIEWING By appointment with Wm. Sykes & Son.
