Full description

This is a rare opportunity to purchase this spacious dwelling house which occupies a wonderful, large site adjacent to the green belt in the village of Stone Chair, Shelf. Included in the sale is a building plot with detailed planning consent to construct a large detached property and further, there is a good sized paddock, small animal shelter and various outbuildings. We understand that the entire site is around 1.10 acres in size but this must be verified by interested parties before proceeding.

Although the property is broadly in three sections, ie House; Building Plot and Paddock the vendor is seeking a buyer who will purchase the entire property as one entity, although we are confident that the successful purchaser could easily split the property into three or more sections should they wish to do so in the future.


This is a semi detached cottage style property which originally, we understand, dates back to 1825. The house has been extended both to the side and rear in recent years and has been refurbished to a high standard throughout. This is a lovely, bright, spacious family home with an abundance of charm and character. The accommodation has good quality contemporary kitchen and bathroom fittings and comprises, in brief:

Ground Floor: Entrance Porch; Family Lounge; Formal Lounge; Breakfast Kitchen / Dining Room; Conservatory. First Floor: Master Bedroom with En-Suite Bathroom; Three further Bedrooms; Family Bathroom.

There is a rear garden with raised patio area and greenhouse. To the front is a block paved garden area and several vehicle parking spaces.


Planning permission was granted in June 2016 to construct a four bedroom detached house with stone outer skin, on a good sized plot within the grounds of the house. Full details, including layout plans and site plan can be inspected on Calderdale Councils portal. Reference 15/01267/FUL. In summary the permission is for a three storey detached house, with a gross external floor area of approximately 3,400 square feet.

The proposed accommodation will comprise in brief:

Ground Floor: Entrance Hall; Living Room; Breakfast Kitchen; Utility Room and Washroom. First Floor: Atrium; Master Bedroom with En-Suite Bathroom and Separate Dressing Room; Two Bedrooms and Family Bathroom. Second Floor: Bedroom; Bathroom and Study. Externally.


The paddock is located to the south side of the site. The paddock is fairly level and rectangular in shape and extends to approximately 70 metres long. To one side of the paddock there is a small animal shelter, hay store,  utility building and shed.


The property is located close to the centres of Stone Chair, Shelf, Northowram and Brighouse and has easy access to Halifax centre and the motorway network. Transport links are very good and local schools have an excellent reputation. The setting is very tranquil and the ambiance has a rural feel. The property is south facing and the land to the south and east is green belt and the house enjoys long distant views across the countryside.
