Imagine sitting in your cozy living room, the flames from the fireplace crackling as you sip your warm beverage and take in the view over the fields and villages, off into the distance, watching the weather roll in. Or maybe you can see yourself cooking on that big range, the glow from the fireplace warming your family as the drinks and the chatter flow easily in the traditional family kitchen. It's a fabulous place, this, with the warmth and character (not to mention the position) of the old cottages, but with the size of rooms that's sure to surprise many, and a quality of fittings that you'd really hoping to find when you walk through the door. The position's great, set to the end of a small row of old cottages, and it's unusual to find one with such a good sized garden and with this much parking. There's certainly enough room to extend at the side, though you would require planning consent and building regulations, and keep much of your garden. Of course, being two cottages knocked into one, it's not a bad size to start with! There's character in abundance, here, with most of the ceilings exposed to the beams, the wood burner in the lounge, the lovely, wooden doors... Upstairs there are three good bedrooms, each with its own facilities. The principle bedroom has a full bathroom suite resplendent with a roll top bath and a separate shower enclosure. The second bedroom has a good shower room, and the third has a screened off WC and wash basin. There's an oil central heating system, and windows and doors are double glazed, too. With a large garage that could serve as a workshop, and views surrounding the house, you really have to come and have a look for yourself.

From Halifax follow Godley Lane out past Shibden and to the traffic lights at Stump Cross. Follow the left fork, the A6036 Bradford Road, through Northowram and to the roundabout at Stone Chair. Turn left into the A644 Brighouse and Denholme Gate Road and then take the first right you can into West Street. Pass the cottages before turning left into Cock Hill Lane. Travel up the hill for just under half a mile, and the cottages can be found on the left hand side, set back along a small service lane. Postcode: HX3 7TQ.
A fabulous and good sized traditional cottage style lounge. It's a great family room with a large fireplace housing a solid fuel stove atop a stone hearth. The ceiling is wood panelled and open to the beams, and there are twin windows to the front which take in those far reaching views. There's a useful storage cupboard which runs beneath the stairs, and double timber and glazed doors swing open into the family kitchen.
The real hub of the house is this wonderful family kitchen. There is a fabulous range of fitted base and wall units with matching drawers and complementing oiled wooden work surfaces, along with feature lighting to the kickboards and under the wall units to add that warm glow around the room. A Belfast sink sits beneath a modern mixer tap, and there is a free standing oil fired range cooker. Integrated appliances include a dishwasher and a fridge. As expected, there's a lovely fireplace which houses sorry an electric stove, again creating that ambiance and glow around this central feature. Again the ceiling is panelled and exposed to the beam work, whilst the floor is finished with a complementing and hard wearing karndean.
A good sized utility space which could be used as a dining room, conservatory or even as part of your future plans to extend to the side. There are fitted wall cupboards above work surfaces.
A space for coats and boots, which also provides access to the boiler room and the WC.
Fitted with a two piece suite consisting of a low level WC and a wash basin.
A useful space which houses the oil fired boiler.
With a small, twisted wrought iron balustrade.
A good sized double bedroom with plenty of room for furniture. It narrows very slightly, to 2.83 metres, as can be seen on the floor plan. The ceiling is exposed to the beam work and there are twin windows to the side which look out over the gardens and adjacent fields.
A full bathroom, good sized, again exposed to the beam work in the ceiling. The walls are fully tiled and the white, four piece suite consists of a low level WC, a wash basin, a corner shower enclosure, and a lovely, roll top, claw foot, freestanding bath. Modern touches include a chrome ladder style heated towel rail and there is a towel and linen cupboard, along with a useful display shelf.
Another good double room, this one with an exposed fireplace which is a lovely traditional feature, though now purely decorative. The windows look out to the front and enjoy that fabulous, far reaching view. There is a traditional style fitted wardrobe and again the ceiling is open to the beams.
Again exposed to the ceiling beams, this shower room is fitted with a white three piece suite consisting of a low level WC and a wash basin set to a vanity style unit with cupboards beneath, and a large shower enclosure. There is also a useful heated towel rail.
For anyone working from home, this good single bedroom would make a lovely home office, if you can tear yourself away from the view out of the front facing windows.
Open to the bedroom but easily enclosed, this room is fitted with a white suite consisting of a low level WC and a wash basin, to part wood panelled walls.
Please note that there are mains electricity and water to the property, with no mains gas. Drainage is to a septic tank which is shared with the other houses in the row, and there is a small fee to empty it once or twice a year. The central heating and hot water are fired by an oil boiler, so you will keep a tank of oil but you will have no gas bill.
The house is set to a surprisingly good size plot, with gardens to the front and the side. Features include areas of lawn, along with a large stone paved patio area, and an ornamental pond which sits in front of a flowerbed rockery.
The large garage offers a great opportunity for all those requiring workshop space, but would house two cars, either.
The driveway and parking area provide car parking space, enough to home three cars.
