This imposing detached house occupies a prominent position with close to the much sought after village centre of Slaithwaite. It has undergone a comprehensive scheme of renovation by the present owners and offers approximately 2550 sqft of spacious, flexible and well presented accommodation over 3 floors. There are raised gardens to the rear and generous parking to the side.
The property is of traditional stone built construction under a hipped blue slate roof and understood to date back to circa 1865 - 1900. In recent times the property stood empty and largely unmodernised for many years prior to our clients purchasing it in 2019. Since then, our client has carried out an extensive scheme of modernisation works to create a home that meets the demands of modern living whilst retaining its traditional charm.
The formal front entrance is accessed up a set of stone steps from the pavement on Manchester Road – the spacious hallway features a glazed balustrade to the first floor. To one side of the hall is the large lounge which features dual aspect windows, a superb stone fireplace and log burning stove. At the other side of the hall, you will find the kitchen which is fitted with an excellent range of modern units with Silestone worksurfaces and island with overhanging breakfast bar. This is in turn open plan to the living / dining room which has a feature brickwork fireplace and a recessed walk in pantry / store. Finally on this floor, there is a utility room and a cloakroom / w.c.
On the lower ground floor, the basement rooms have been converted and could be utilised for a variety of uses and may well suite somebody who operates a business from home as there is a separate entrance door here to the side of the building. Within one of the rooms there is a large walk in store / plant room.
The first floor landing features a glazed balustrade around the stairs and a door with a bridge out to the rear garden. There are 5 bedrooms on this floor, the principal bedroom having its own en-suite shower room. There are 2 other double bedrooms and 2 larger single bedrooms. These are served by a house bathroom and shower room.
The property has been replastered, rewired and replumbed throughout. All of the external walls have also been insulated. There is a gas central heating system with underfloor heating to the lower and ground floors – this is zoned with thermostats in each of the rooms. In addition to this there are uPVC double glazed windows throughout. We understand from our client the property was re-pointed and re-roofed circa 2017, prior to their ownership.
Externally there is a stone paved area to the front of the building, enclosed by wrought iron railings. A driveway to the side leads to a generous parking area for up to 6 vehicles.
