Set in a quiet backwater off Hoddlesden Village, this property was originally constructed in 1861 as part of Hoddlesden Hall and converted to form one of four beautiful homes in 1997. This three-storey home, in our opinion, now offers modern day amenities with a truly interesting history. It is set in a cobbled courtyard and stands proudly in Â¾ acre of extensive lawns and woodland (best bluebells in town!) gardens along with countryside aspects beyond. The accommodation is arranged over three floors and briefly comprises; spacious entrance hall, walk in cloaks cupboard, separate WC, fitted kitchen, breakfast room/dining room with open fire and access to the beautiful rear garden, a useful study with work station and ample storage, first floor, elegant sitting room with original exposed floorboards and two windows with stunning outlooks, a double bedroom and a family bathroom with shower, second floor, master suite with double bedroom and en suite four-piece bathroom, two further bedrooms on this floor (one double and one single). Benefits include parking for three cars, hardwood and PVC double-glazed windows (majority have 'K glass' and have stunning outlooks), gas central heating (has a full service history), a roof overhaul in 2015 and new bargeboards in 2014. Viewing is essential if your requirements are immaculate and spacious accommodation along with a village/rural life.
