Asking Price Of:

Brookside, Slaithwaite, Huddersfield, HD7 5BZ


This absolutely gorgeous cottage is the end in a row of three nestled alongside the crimble clough beck that meanders by in the cutting below the gardens. As you would expect, the property is full of character and charm with exposed beams, stonework, natural wood internal doors with cast iron latches, and a multi-fuel stove set into a brickwork chimney breast. The accommodation briefly comprises kitchen and living room on the ground floor, 2 bedrooms and a shower room at first floor, and the lower ground floor, which is believed to have been converted many years ago, has a hall with external door out to the beck side elevation, a room to be utilised to suit your own requirements, and a fully fitted bathroom. Externally, there is a block paved parking bay with steps down to the entrance door and then down again to an attached stone-built garden store and access to a sizeable garden. The village of Slaithwaite is only a short walk away where you will find an array of shops, bars, restaurants, train station, and bus stops.
