School Terrace, Slaithwaite, Huddersfield, HD7 5HW


This absolutely gorgeous Grade II listed cottage is in the middle of three properties created from the original school building which displays a stone plaque on the pediment with the inscription ‘Slaithwaite & Lingards School 1825’. The property is full of character and charm and has some nice period features including exposed stonework revealing former doorways and openings that would have given access through the school, exposed beams, and original fireplaces. Externally, there is a well-tended mature garden to the front, and parking for 2 cars at the rear with access up to a lovely garden space where you will find a decked terrace, a large open garden room for relaxing in, gravelled sitting area, and a large shed. It has very recently benefitted from some improvement works including replacement cast iron guttering to the front and a new consumer unit. The village of Slaithwaite is only a short walk away where you will find an array of shops, bars, restaurants, train station, and bus stops. The well-regarded Nields Junior, Infant and Nursery School is handily just along the road.

At the rear, there is parking for 2 cars on a flagged base, steps up to a decked sun terrace, access then to a large garden room which is timber framed and open all sides with some segments of Perspex and can be enclosed with blinds or curtains if you wish to fully enclose it.

Leave Slaithwaite village and head up Ned Lane onto the A62 Manchester Road as though you were heading towards Marsden.

No.2 is the middle one accessed at the rear.
