Swallow Lane, Golcar, Huddersfield, HD7 4NB


Upper Fields Farm was created around 45 years ago by converting the original cottage and adjoining barn into the sizeable 4 bedroomed residence you see today. It is full of character and charm having retained as many original features as possible and nicely complimented by more recent installations including the modern fitted kitchen and white sanitary ware. It has gas fired central heating, and double glazing. Externally, there is ample parking on the driveway, double garage, good sized gardens with paved sitting areas, and external access to a very useful basement area. It is ideally placed for access to local schools, an array of village shops and amenities, bus stops nearby, and only a short drive to either junctions 23 or 24 of the M62 motorway.
