Overview
GORGEOUS FAMILY HOUSE OR SECOND HOME OPPORTUNITY - EXCELLENT RAIL AND CAR LINKS TO MANCHESTER BRADFORD AND LEEDS

Currently used as a family home, Hinchliffe Cottage would equally be a wonderful second home investment for a discerning purchaser either from the UK or abroad providing a very secure, high quality base in which to live, explore and enjoy this stunning part of England.

House Network are delighted to offer this superb 3 double bedroom, semi-detached, freehold, period property in the stunning, ever sought after village of Cragg Vale near Hebden Bridge in West Yorkshire. It is rare for properties of this standard and calibre to reach the open market in this area and viewing is strongly recommended to appreciate both the property and its location. Hinchliffe Cottage is one of a kind.

Cragg Vale has wooded valleys, fabulous moors and craggs. It is famed for having the longest continuous incline in England, hence Tour de France and Tour de Yorkshire Cycle Races were routed through the valley and through Cragg Vale. Walking in the Upper Calder Valley both on the flat and on the tops provides some of the most stunning countryside and views in the North Of England.

Hebden Bridge centre is under 4 miles away with Mytholmroyd, Hardcastle Craggs and Heptonstall offering additional treasures in the form of history, walking, cycling, artisan shopping and dining out. The Upper Calder Valley is home to a truly warm community of exceptionally friendly people. Hebden Bridge is currently a finalist for the category of 'Small Market Town' run by The Great British High Street Awards 2016.

Dropping down from the main road are three properties central to this old village - Hinchliffe Barn, The Hinchliffe Arms and Hinchliffe Cottage, a gorgeous period house standing proudly within this beautiful conservation area covering approximately 1,378 square feet. Hinchliffe Cottage is situated in idyllic country surroundings with a traditional church, listed bridge and winding rivers for company. A taste of quintessential England at its finest.

The property is within five minutes 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, making it an ideal country retreat for the city commuter. A new Trans-Pennine Rail Tunnel linking Manchester and Leeds that will take 125mph trains through some of England's most beautiful countryside is at the heart of an ambitious £15 billion plan to improve transport networks in the north of England in the near future. The brand-new route, modelled on the Channel Tunnel, would cut journey times by half. Travelling between Manchester and Leeds or Sheffield would take just half an hour, with links to ports in Hull and Liverpool and the region's airports vastly improved. Nearby Mytholmroyd (5 minutes by car) is on this line.

35 minutes by car to The Trafford Centre in Manchester, just over an hour to Manchester Airport and good links to Leeds.

Tucked away in a most desirable area of Cragg Vale, this welcoming home boasts kerb appeal, and flows with beautifully restored features. Enviable throughout, the property has been professionally refurbished and boasts a neutrally pleasing interior decoration. Hinchliffe Cottage has been renovated and finished to a very high standard and offers excellent living accommodation to suit a variety of needs.

The property is a solid, substantial period stone house and briefly comprises: lobby, open plan ground floor with discrete reception areas including lounge, enclosed under stair cloakroom opening into the dining area which in turn opens into the spacious kitchen. This open plan reception room could easily be returned to separately partitioned areas if preferred. 2 sizeable double bedrooms on the 1st floor with a spacious and bespoke Jack and Jill house bathroom and separate WC. A second staircase leads to the lovely third double bedroom with separate shower room, a further separate WC and 2 storage cupboards/wardrobes. Externally there is a bespoke Western Red Cedar Workshop, enclosed gardens to three sides, parking for two cars, power, light and water.

In addition, there is an adjoining further plot of land (freehold) to the top of the rear wall enjoying the woodland glade which is included in the sale. Perfect for developing into a secluded and peaceful hideaway. It could enjoy a variety of uses such as a greenhouse, additional workshop area, treehouse for children and BBQ/entertainment space with a difference. Its length runs longer than the main property. It does not have any rights of way over it. A plan is available for interested parties.

During the late 18th century, Cragg Vale was the home of a band of counterfeiters known as the Cragg Coiners. From the mid 1700's onwards, water then steam power, and combined water wheel and steam engines dominated the valley with the cloth mills. There were a number of families involved in mill ownership during this time. Sutcliffes, Greenwoods, and 'The Hinchliffes' amongst others.

A two or three minute walk on the woodland path takes you to a delightful private tennis club. The whole area provides many wonderful walking and cycling opportunities by the riverside, on the moors and through fields quite literally on the doorstep.

There is a readily accessible and regular bus route to Mytholmroyd, Hebden Bridge, Ripponden and Huddersfield. You will find good local schools, excellent pubs, cafes, galleries, restaurants and shopping facilities both nearby in Mytholmroyd and in Hebden Bridge - home to a plethora of wonderful Artisan shops, a Marina, the canal with its moorings for narrow boats and pathways for walking and cycling. Medical, rail and transport facilities in Mytholmroyd and Hebden Bridge are superb. The Yorkshire Dales are less than an hour away and The Lake District two hours. Skipton, Ilkley, Harrogate and Lancashire are all accessible shopping areas away from the immediate locality in addition to Manchester, Bradford and Leeds.

Hinchliffe Cottage is beautiful, spacious, on the level for ease of access and immaculately presented whilst also being a period property steeped in history. The house is ready for the new owner to simply move in and enjoy the fabulous surroundings with no chain delay.

Hinchliffe Cottage has undergone a superb top to bottom professional renovation, backed with full building regulation certification that seamlessly combines original and contemporary features.

No Onward Chain.

Since the refurbishment, the property now enjoys new floors, doors, beautiful wooden windows, thermostatically controlled central heating, acoustic double glazing, electrical wiring, lighting, carpeting and plumbing throughout with a fully equipped and fitted superior kitchen, superb bathroom and various en suites. All newly and neutrally decorated throughout. There is also a fully integrated alarm system, arial amplifier and smoke alarm sensors installed. There are numerous telephone sockets throughout the whole property.

Hinchliffe Cottage is served by mains gas, electricity and water. There is a brand new (2016) sewerage system to which Hinchliffe Cottage has legal right of use (documented in the Deeds, situated off the property and carrying a full protective legal covenant to the benefit of Hinchliffe Cottage.) Whilst enjoying all user rights over this system, Hinchliffe Cottage has no financial or maintenance responsibilities - these both belonging to the owners who are legally obliged to maintain and manage the system regularly. Thus no sewerage charges apply to the vendor's property.

Since the EPC was completed, two of the three recommendations have been acted upon. LED lighting has been installed throughout the house, there are thermostatic radiator valves and in addition there is a house thermostat.
