This most unusual yet desirable property has been in the same family since it was built around 1970 and has provided a very comfortable home for the last occupants who had it adapted by adding the lift enabling them to stay there. Although it will benefit from some updating, this quirky home will appeal to a variety of purchasers including someone who may also make use of the adaptation, or perhaps someone with a bit of vision who can see the potential to create a very comfortable home of their own design. It is the end in a row of 4 with most of the living space laid out on the first floor comprising living room, breakfast kitchen, 2 bedrooms and bathroom. The ground floor is currently taken up with two integral garages, a large hall, and a utility room. Its enviable position up Rock Lane means that it enjoys countryside or woodland views from every window. It also has double glazing and central heating provided by the back boiler. Externally, it has a driveway to the front giving access to the garages, and at the rear you will find a lean-to conservatory (accessed externally only), and a large well-tended garden. Slaithwaite village centre is still within walking distance where you will find an array of shops, bars, restaurants, train station, and a regular bus service. It is also only a short drive up to junctions 23 & 24 of the M62 motorway.
