Full description

A stunning, individual residence designed by the renowned architect Roger Stephenson in a rural backwater of Littleborough, on the Lancashire / Yorkshire border. Built in 2006 to the exacting requirements of the present owners, Hill House combines stylish design with flexibility of use and provides more than 3000 sq ft of living space and also benefits from NO UPWARD CHAIN.

Roger Stephenson is one of Britain's most successful architects, awarded an OBE for his contribution to British Architecture which includes notable buildings such as Cheetham's School of Music in Manchester. Hill House is one of the rare times he has taken on a domestic project and he has created an outstanding and unique property.

The accommodation is arranged over four floors with the lower ground floor comprising the large double garage with electric doors which also incorporates a workshop / boiler room. Internal stairs lead directly to the ground floor. From the outside a flight of steps leads to the front door and these have a cleverly concealed bin store.

The impressively proportioned living room is of double height and has a tall feature window to the front elevation. The open plan space is divided into sitting and dining areas by a superb central chimney which incorporates a bespoke contemporary fireplace. Sliding doors in the dining room give access to the south facing garden.

The kitchen leads off the dining area and is fitted with designer ‘Alno’ units from Germany with Silestone worktops. There is an integrated dishwasher, oven with an induction hob over and a large pantry. The ground floor accommodation is completed by a two-piece contemporary cloakroom and a generous utility room with a laundry chute from the first floor.

The master bedroom suite is located on the first floor with a walk-in wardrobe and large bathroom with shower and free-standing bath. Also on this floor is another mezzanine bedroom, currently utilised as a home office.

The second floor comprises a double bedroom with en-suite shower room and a huge studio room which would easily split into additional bedrooms if required. Both rooms access the delightful south-facing terrace which enjoys far-reaching farmland views.

Hill House stands in a private plot with an easily maintained, landscaped garden and large block paved drive to the front. The south-facing walled garden to the rear of the property has a paved patio leading up to a level lawn bordered by easily maintained raised flower beds.

Situation
Hill House is situated in a sought-after area on the outskirts of Littleborough, close to the Lancashire / Yorkshire border and surrounded by stunning countryside. The local amenities of Littleborough town are only a short drive away and include shops, pubs, restaurants, schools and a mainline railway station affording direct access to both Manchester and Leeds.

The delightful towns of Hebden Bridge, Todmorden and Rochdale are within 20 minutes’ drive and Littleborough is surrounded by delightful Pennine countryside offering walking and cycling opportunities for the outdoor enthusiast. Whittaker Golf Club is five minutes’ drive away.

Services
All mains services, gas central heating (underfloor heating to the ground floor, radiators to first and second floor). Double glazing. The boiler is located in the boiler room on the lower ground floor. There is a central vacuum system throughout the house.
