Asking Price Of:

Thick Hollins, Meltham, Holmfirth, HD9 4DQ


This absolutely gorgeous 3 bedroomed cottage is the end in a row of four which occupy a lovely position just by the entrance to the golf course. No.31 benefits from having a large corner plot which the current owners have taken full advantage of by creating more parking in front of the garage and have transformed the heavily overgrown plot into beautifully landscaped wrap around gardens. The cottage rests on the site of the old gatehouse and the original stone gateposts are still in situ just in front of the cottage. The property has gas fired central heating, and double glazing. The village of Meltham is within walking distance, or short car journey, where you will find an array of shops, bars, restaurants, and bus stops. For those who enjoy the outdoors, there is plenty of surrounding countryside to be explored.
