Full description

Tenure: Freehold

We are delighted to offer for sale this stone fronted end cottage which provides a very generous three bedroomed home, together with pleasant gardens and off street parking. This is a delightful semi-rural position, with open views to the front, yet surprisingly, only five minutes drive away from Brighouse town centre and with easy access to J26 of the M62. Step inside and you will appreciate the accommodation is well presented and has the obvious benefits of gas central heating, uPVC double glazing and an alarm system. The master bedroom has an ensuite shower room whereas other benefits include a useful storeroom and sun lounge to the rear.

The property is stone fronted with the remainder being rendered surmounted by a stone slate roof.

Mains gas, electric and water are available. Drainage is to a shared septic tank.

There will be an annual service charge of £500. This will be reviewed on a five yearly basis. This service charge will cover maintenance of the electric gate and driveway and maintenance and emptying of the shared septic tank and rainwater tank.

NB. The property has the benefit of cheap electricity from solar panels, which are on the current owner's nearby barn. The current owner will retain ownership of the solar panels and therefore the feed in tariff. However, the property will continue to benefit from cheap electricity.

From our enquiries this property is a Council Tax Band C. However interested parties should make their own enquiries to confirm this.
