Having just completed a comprehensive scheme of renovation, modernisation, and a first-floor extension, is this absolutely gorgeous 5 bedroomed Grade II listed detached residence believed to date back to the late 1700s. As you would expect, it is full of character and period features perfectly matched with more modern installations, and has fabulous countryside views from almost every window. Externally, there is ample parking, gardens to all sides, and stone flagged patio areas.


This enviable family home is conveniently placed along Chain Road between Marsden and Holt Head within a short drive of all the village shops, bars and restaurants in Slaithwaite, Marsden and Meltham. The location is semi-rural and therefore it enjoys some fabulous views over the surrounding countryside and far beyond. It has been completely renovated by the current owners who have invested a great deal of time and effort in turning it into the beautiful family home you see today. The sympathetic renovation focused on retaining as much of the original character and charm as possible, whilst installing more modern conveniences including a gas fired central heating system, under floor heating to part of the ground floor, double glazed windows, a stunning dining kitchen, quality modern sanitary ware in all 3 bathrooms, and a brand-new sewerage treatment plant. It is then finished to a particularly high standard with natural wood ‘Z’ braced internal doors, antique brass style sockets and switches, and tasteful décor throughout. If you need space to accommodate elderly relatives or perhaps prefer slightly separate guest quarters, then the ground floor bedroom with adjoining bathroom is ideal.

As you will see from the photographs, there is also so much to be utilised and enjoyed outside but very briefly there is a driveway providing off road parking, garden areas to all sides with lawns, rockeries, and stone paved patio areas. Conveniently, there is a bus stop right outside the property for pick up and drop off of children going to and from Colne Valley High School.
