Newland Fold, Blackmoorfoot, Huddersfield, HD7 5GY


An exclusive development of 7 prestigious homes created around 17 years ago by converting the former Yorkshire Water owned barns and filter house. No.4 is one of four dwellings created from the substantial former filter house and provides a fantastic family home with a huge amount of space, some of which can be quite flexible to suit your own needs. It comes with a double garage, parking, and a large very well-tended garden.


This enviable family home was created as part of the original conversion of the former Yorkshire Water buildings back in 2007. Newland Fold is nicely tucked away beside the picturesque Blackmoorfoot Reservoir with access to some beautiful surrounding countryside via numerous public footpaths from your own doorstep. There are 7 unique residences within the development and No.4 is one of four dwellings created from the substantial former filter house and provides approximately 250sq.m. (2,691sq.ft.) of living space. The internal layout was well thought out with a huge dining hall being partially open to a breakfast kitchen, and access to a boot room & w.c., very spacious living room, a sizeable home office, and utility room. On the upper level you will find an open mezzanine lounge with gallery overlooking the dining hall, 4 large double bedrooms, en suite shower room to the master bedroom, and a house bathroom. There is then access up to what is currently used as a TV/Games Lounge. The property has a gas fired central heating system, double glazing, and an intruder alarm.

As you will see from the photographs, there is also so much to be utilised and enjoyed outside but very briefly there is a double garage with parking in front, a beautifully landscaped garden south westerly facing garden, and access to communal gardens should you wish to take advantage of them.

The property occupies a semi-rural setting yet is conveniently placed with the well-regarded gastro pup ‘The Bull’s Head’ within a short walk, and access to all the village amenities in nearby Meltham, Slaithwaite and Linthwaite.

It is a joy to sit here and listen to an array of birdsong along with the sound of the overflow stream that comes through below the garden and out the other side running off down the valley. Beyond the sun terrace, there is a beautiful garden which is lawned and has well stocked beds bordered by timber fencing, trees, and shrubs. There is a greenhouse, timber shed, and opening leading on to the communal grounds should you wish to make use of them. If you followed the lane just beyond the house, you will find the double garage which has a newly installed remote-controlled door, lighting, and power sockets.
