Asking Price Of:

Hawthorn Road, Slaithwaite, Huddersfield, HD7 5DU


Do not be deceived by the apparent narrow appearance of this gorgeous weaver’s cottage, it is actually a fair bit wider extending out at the back of No.3 with banks of mullioned windows to its northern elevation. Once inside, you will immediately see this most attractive home is absolutely full of period character and charm with a wealth of cottage features. The accommodation is laid out over 3 floors and has double glazed windows, a gas fired central heating system with recently replaced boiler, and the stone roof was replaced and insulated in 2019. All the window blinds that you see will be included which are bespoke and made to measure for these windows. Externally, there is a cobbled area just in front of the entrance door where you can sit out and have planted tubs, or, like the neighbour, you could use it for off road parking. It is conveniently located for access to all the village shops and amenities, plus it is within walking distance of the train station. In all, a gorgeous home ideal for a single person or couple.
