This 2 bedroomed stone-built end of terrace home is nicely tucked away off Old Mount Road and occupies an elevated position in the hillside above Marsden, close to the boundary of the Peak District National Park. No.20 is the very last property in the row and benefits from owning the bit of land at the side of it. It has gas fired central heating, double glazing, useful cellars, an attic room, and some fantastic views across towards Marsden Moor. There is a garden to the front, strip of land to the side, and opposite the rear entrance door there is a raised garden area. Wood Top is only a short walk from the village centre where you will find a good range of shops and restaurants, railway station, and canal side towpath which provides pleasant walks up to the Tunnel End Visitor Centre, or down to Slaithwaite. If you prefer a more challenging terrain, then there is access to some fabulous Pennine walks via numerous public footpaths.
