This end terraced cottage enjoys a superb position in a much sought after conservation area between the villages of Honley and Netherton. The property has been tastefully extended to provide spacious well planned accommodation with 3 double bedrooms. It has a delightful garden to the side with a garden room and woodland extending to approximately 1.25 acres.

About the property
The property is a traditional stone built end terraced cottage with stone slate roof located at the end of a row of cottages in a much sought after location. The original part of the cottage bears a datestone of 1795 above the entrance door. It was extensively renovated circa 2013 and the subject of a substantial extension to the side which has been carried out in keeping with the style and materials of the original building.

It sits in a beautiful, slightly elevated position on the edge of this much admired conservation area which enjoys all the best of a rural setting but is within easy reach of both Honley and Netherton with their array of amenities. It should be noted that whilst the adjacent cottages in this row are grade II listed, this property isn’t. There are generous gardens to the front and side of the building which then open up into an area of mature woodland – the total area being approximately 1.25 acres.

The day to day entrance to the building is via a door to the front of the house which leads into the dining kitchen. This is fitted with an excellent range of fitted units and features dual aspect mullioned windows and a stone flagged floor with underfloor heating. Off the kitchen you will find a large utility room with door to the side garden – this also doubles as an occasional study with a built in desk. There is also a good sized living room (within the original part of the house) which enjoys many character features including mullioned windows and an exposed brickwork fireplace with log burning stove. It is open plan to a small lean to section at the rear of the building which is currently used as a dining area.

Upstairs, the landing area features exposed stonework along the rear wall and gives access to the 3 bedrooms. The main bedroom is partially open to the high angled ceiling with the roof framework on display to great effect and a useful open mezzanine area. The other 2 bedrooms are both doubles and are to be found in the newer section of the building along with a modern bathroom.

There are wooden framed double glazed windows throughout the building which serve to enhance the original character of the building. It also has a gas central heating system and quality modern fittings throughout. Our clients purchased the property circa 2020 and have caried out further improvements including the upgrading of the bathroom and utility room.

The outside area has also undergone further works under the commission of our clients including landscaping of the garden area which sits mostly to the side of the house and the construction of the modern garden room with its own shower room / wc facilities. There is a parking area below the house with steps leading up to the garden and front of the building. Beyond the garden area there is an area of woodland, divided up into 2 sections by a further area which is not registered to the house but has been in use by the previous and present owners.

We strongly recommend viewing to appreciate the quality of the internal finish, the beautiful grounds and the enviable location.
