Overview
Oats Royd Cottage

House Network are pleased to offer this competitively priced 4 bed detached family house in Luddenden, Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire.

Viewing is essential to appreciate both the fantastic location of the property and the quality of the accommodation offered. No chain involved. Development potential. Excellent for commuting to Leeds and Manchester.

Total area approximately 123.6 square metres (1330.0 square feet).

The Basics:

A four bedroomed detached home positioned in a delightful, private setting with first class access to the countryside, attractive courtyards and large south facing gardens up to 1/3 of an acre. Oats Royd Cottage forms part of the former Murgatroyd Oats Royd Estate and is one of just 5 properties providing a hamlet style setting.

What the Owner says:

"We couldn't believe our luck when we found this detached property with a large, relatively flat garden tucked away from view but yet so close to Hebden Bridge and Halifax. There are fabulous walks from the front door taking you directly into wonderful countryside favoured by walkers, fell runners and cyclists. The added bonus has been that there is a good local primary school within walking distance and bus access to the two highly renowned selective grammar schools in Halifax, plus the independent Rishworth School & Heathfield which makes the location hard to beat. There is also a train service into Leeds and Manchester which we use daily for work, making the property perfect for our lifestyle. Oats Royd Cottage is very much part of the local history, as the Murgatroyds built and ran textile mills, so it must date back to the 1800s and therefore has many original features still in existence. It has, however, been renovated and more land has been purchased in order to make it a very practical and comfortable family home where we now have chickens, vegetable patches and a little orchard, so if you fancy a go at the "Good Life" then this place would be perfect!"

The House:

Tucked away in the pretty and much sought after Luddenden valley is this delightful Grade II listed detached property set within approx. 1/3 of an acre. This beautifully presented, versatile family accommodation retains many character features and benefits from south facing, private, mature gardens and attractive views. Comprising lounge, dining room, kitchen, 4 bedrooms, family bathroom, private access, ample parking, 2 courtyards, extensive gardens with vegetable plots, large shed/workshop and greenhouse. In addition, the property offers scope for further development and comes with the benefit of architect plans drawn up for an extension to the property which would create 2 additional bedrooms and a bathroom.

A rare opportunity to acquire one of a handful of properties forming part of the Murgatroyd Oats Royd Estate, this property - which was formerly the cottages, and dovecote to the main house - has undergone significant conversion and renovation since it was bought by the present owners in 2004 and now benefits from wooden-framed double glazing throughout, underfloor heating on the ground floor, hard wood flooring, a new kitchen and dining room, and additional french windows accessing the lower courtyard. Some additional land was also purchased giving the property exclusive access via its own track and plenty of room for chickens and possibly the odd pig!

The property has an EPC energy rating of 'D' and is Council Tax Band 'C'.

The Area:

Ideally located in a private position, yet still convenient for local amenities, this property is also a stones throw from the popular conservation village of Luddenden with its local pub, Midgley with the village shop, and is less than 3 miles from Hebden Bridge (voted coolest place to live in March 2013 and recently proposed as Britain's 2nd City), where you will find a vibrant collection of cafes, galleries, restaurants, theatre and the historic picture house, not to mention the Tour de France Grand Depart 2014.

Great for commuters, the property is perfectly located to take advantage of the trans Pennine rail service and, with free parking at both Mytholmroyd and Hebden Bridge stations, Leeds and Manchester are easily commutable by train. Leeds approx. 25 miles, Manchester 30 miles.
