Full Details

FULL DESCRIPTION This well-appointed and deceptively spacious 3-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 far reaching 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 a little further to Ainley Top where you have access onto the M62 motorway. The accommodation is laid out over four levels, along with a basement storage area, and would suite a family, a professional couple, and has enough space to create a 'work from home' area. All in all, this property offers a great deal of flexibility thanks to its unique layout. Externally, the property comes with a stone flagged area where you can have planted pots and tubs as well as being ideal for sitting out and enjoying those tremendous views. It also comes with two allocated parking spaces.
