Cragg Vale is home to a truly warm community of exceptionally friendly people and lies in a verdant, steep-sided wooded valley of outstanding natural beauty in the Upper Calder Valley, West Yorkshire. Located approximately 2 miles from nearby Mytholmroyd, almost 4 miles from Hebden Bridge and only 7 miles from the Lancashire border, it is easily accessible from both East and West. The area holds many opportunities for WALKING, DINING, CYCLING and EQUESTRIAN pursuits with pathways, tracks and fine dining venues criss-crossing the valley.

Hinchliffe Cottage in Cragg Vale Village has been BEAUTIFULLY and PROFESSIONALLY refurbished, seamlessly combining both original and contemporary features. It carries full building regulation certification. It was built in the mid 1800's and offers fine features throughout whilst retaining a wealth of character. The property is a traditional high end home, is spacious and immaculately presented whilst also being a period property seeped in history.

In addition there is a plot of land (freehold) to the top of the rear drystone wall which also belongs to the vendors and is included in this sale. This separate plot of land has its own set of Title Deeds and could be sold separately to the main property although in this instance it is included in the sale.

Hinchliffe Cottage sits alongside a beautiful traditional CHURCH, a splendidly elegant HOSTELRY, the historic listed BRIDGE and deep beneath it - winding RIVERS for company. A taste of breathtaking, 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 home 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 property is a solid, substantial and well kept 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 and well appointed 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 in-built wardrobes. Externally there is a bespoke western red cedar workshop, fully enclosed private gardens to three sides, parking for two cars, power, light and water plus the adjoining additional plot of land which is included in the overall sale. Perfect for developing into a secluded and peaceful hideaway. It could enjoy a variety of uses such as a greenhouse, additional workshop area, vegetable plot, treehouse for children or a BBQ/entertainment space with a difference. Its length runs longer than the main property and a plan is available for interested parties.

There are three areas to the gardens - the front, the side and the rear - all are fully enclosed and safe for pets and young children. Absolutely perfect for outdoor entertaining and relaxing in the sunshine. More details in the specific area description.

A two or three minute walk on the nearby 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 and the access road leading to Hinchliffe Cottage is always gritted in icy weather.

You will find good local nurseries and 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. It is a 2 hour run to the East Coast and 1 1/2 hours will see you on the West. Skipton, Ilkley, Harrogate and Lancashire are all accessible shopping areas away from the immediate locality in addition to MANCHESTER, BRADFORD AND LEEDS.

Since the refurbishment, the property 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 an arial amplifier system and smoke alarm sensors. There are numerous telephone and arial sockets throughout the whole property and satellite is installed. In addition, the vendors enjoy HIGH SPEED INTERNET.

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, LED bulbs have been fitted throughout and a house thermostat installed so the original EPC is out of date.

There are various fixtures and fittings which the vendors may include in the sale, details of which can be discussed if required.
