Full description

A great family home with a detached cottage and a triple garage block. Set in a picturesque rural setting and with potential to rent adjoining grazing land.


Slaithwaite has had an injection of investment to become an up and coming one stop convenient, community village. There are lots of places to eat and drink, a supermarket, a good butcher, doctors surgery, a great community bakery and green grocers.  So not lacking in ammenaties and including renowned farmshops in the surrounding area.   

The Aire & Calder Navigation runs through the centre of the village and it’s a growing tourist stop. It’s also a really convenient place to live for commuters to both Leeds & Manchester, by road or rail. 


Key Features


Heath Farmhouse is a grade II Listed home with nice architectural features.

The adjoining barn has recently been converted into more great living space to create a really spacious family home.

The mix of traditional and modern works really well, offering a range of living spaces, from the cosy sitting room to a really large open living room with a games area. Something for every occasion. 

There are four double bedrooms on the first floor and the option of a fifth bedroom on the ground floor.

The detached cottage offers great potential, as does the triple garage block.

All of the property benefits from great views across the Colne Valley and Heath Farm enjoys a high degree of privacy.


The Ground Floor


The front door leads into the breakfast kitchen which has a range of modern cabinets arranged around a central island, all topped by granite surfaces. There are integrated appliances, two double self cleaning ovens and a ceramic induction hob set into the chimney recess with a glass splash-back. There is a store room and laundry behind the kitchen along with a fuel store and boiler house. 

A staircase leads from the kitchen to the central landing in the farmhouse.

The sitting room has windows to two sides and a large solid fuel stove within an impressive stone surround. A half glass panelled door leads into a home office which has an external door and a long store which may have the potential of creating an en suite shower room, enabling the study to be used as a ground floor bedroom suite, subject to consents. 

There is an inner hall between the barn and the farmhouse which has a coat store and a cloakroom. 

The rear entrance hall then opens into an exceptional living space within the barn, it’s a really large open area with a high pitched ceiling with a roof light atrium and beautiful exposed roof timbers. There is a high stone wall with a cast iron stove and a set of twin barn doors opening to the front courtyard. An under heated limestone floor runs throughout the room. This great space means the whole family can relax, dine and play in one exciting space, it’s also a great space for a party. A modern oak and glass staircase runs up to a long galleried landing which flies over the barn. 


First Floor


The family bedrooms are gathered around the landing from the kitchen stairs. 

There are two double bedrooms with fitted furniture which are ideal children’s rooms and both are served by the house bathroom which has a shower, a panelled bath and twin basins.

The master bedroom sits in the centre of the house, with windows on two sides and a range of fitted furniture. A step leads down into a dressing room which has more wardrobe space and a dressing table beneath a skylight. The master bedroom en suite is really nicely presented it has under-floor heating, a shower, wall mounted basin and loo and a panelled bath with a bathroom TV set into the tiles, a nice place to relax after a long day. 

The second bedroom suite is set at the far end of the landing, it has a recessed shower and wash areas, a great place for guests to stay independently from the family bedrooms.

The landing combines into a long glass panelled staircase which flows down to the living area.


The Outbuildings, Gardens, Grounds and Services


A long drive runs down from the road and winds down in front of the triple garage, past the cottage and into a large parking area in front of the barn. 

The front garden sits above a pond with decked platforms. A gate at the bottom of the garden leads to an adjoining field which is currently rented. Beyond the cottage and garage there is a reasonably flat area of grassland which is also rented and offers the opportunity to be grazed as another pony paddock. We believe these tenancies would be offered to the next lucky owner of Heath Farm.

The Cottage is a quant building which has a ground floor room with windows to three sides and a staircase to the first floor room. We think this great building, which extends in total to around 600 square feet could make a small cottage annexe, a home office or studio. It could also create a profitable holiday let, subject to consents. 

The garage block has also got lots of potential as well, it can currently accommodate three cars but much of this space could also be converted into similar uses as the cottage, subject to consents. 

Heath Farm has oil fired central heating & hot water, mains electricity, spring water and septic tank drainage.
