A rarity in Hebden Bridge, a spacious 3 bedroomed house with gardens and views in the valley rather than on the tops. This architect-designed stone-built house was built in the 1940's but has been recently renovated to provide stylish contemporary living on the sunny side of the valley
Just ten minutes walk away from town, and a couple of minutes from the main road yet quiet and peaceful, this property opposite the church and school in Mytholm (at the bottom of Mytholm Steeps) is ideally located, a short walk to town and the station. The house is at the end of a private drive and has plenty of off-road parking at the end of this drive as well as its own sloped drive up to the garden where's there's room for further parking if needed.
The house has large gardens to three sides and amazing views, something that is unusual for a Hebden Bridge valley property. There's a large double glazed wooden door into the kitchen to benefit from these views, and to provide easy access into the extensive gardens.
The ground floor has a large sitting room with bay window (again with a great view) This room is heated with central heating, but also has a Danish wood-burning stove for extra warmth and a cosy feel. Behind the sitting room is a room that could be a home office, dining room or fourth bedroom.
The kitchen runs the whole of the length of the house, with windows to the front and rear. It has free-standing kitchen units from Habitat, including an island worktop, dishwasher and Smeg oven included in the price. The size of the room means that it can incorporate a dining table for relaxed eating and entertaining, or armchairs to appreciate the views over the valley. The double-glazed large door opens directly out to the garden.
Upstairs the main bedroom is very large, and could in fact be converted into two smaller rooms, or have an ensuite bathroom fitted, particularly as it has windows to two sides. The second bedroom is a large double with fitted wardrobes and cupboards/vanity unit, and the third bedroom is just big enough for a double bed.
The family bathroom is brand new, tiled with Ideal Standard and Laufen fittings and a great "Rain" power shower. The toilet is in a separate small room with basin.
The house was designed and built in the 1940s, but has more of a 1930's style about it, with a beautiful original large stained glass window on the landing. The recent conversion, contemporary and stylish, includes stylish decoration, sisal carpets and stair runners. The property already provides all a family or professional couple would need for modern living, but also benefits from the option to extend to the side, to the rear or up into the well-insulated loft, to make a truly amazing large family house. The whole place inside and out has been professionally decorated, and the pictures don't do the place full justice, come and have a look for yourselves.
The gardens wrap around the house on three sides, and are well-established with planting, lawns, ponds and and some vegetable patches. There is a useful stone-built outhouse with electricity and water, ideal for washing machines, tumble dryers and gardening equipment, as well as a small greenhouse/potting shed. There are the foundations for a double garage should you want to build a garage or perhaps a garden room/office.
The main A646 Burnley to Halifax road is just 2 minutes away, yet the sounds are of the church bells and birds in the woods behind the house.
Hebden Bridge is an increasingly popular place to live for good reason. It boasts many lovely independent shops, has bars, cafes and restaurants, a community-run cinema and the world famous Trades Clubs for intimate gigs. Add in the reputation of good local schools and easy commuting to Leeds and Manchester, and it is no suprise that this sought-after and convenient location is attracting many incomers who receive a warm welcome from this community.
