A truly unique opportunity to acquire a detached former Vicarage including 'Clock Cottage' holiday let. Benefitting from breathtaking views over the Saddleworth valley, viewing is considered essential. EPC: D

Set in a half-acre, hillside position affording unparalleled, commanding views of The Pennine’s stretching from Yorkshire, through Greater Manchester and on to the neighbouring county of Cheshire, this wonderful former Vicarage includes a further detached cottage which features a high rate of occupancy with Sykes Cottages -

Accessed off Stockport Road via electronic security gates, the private driveway leads down to both properties, passing open countryside and feature pond.

Clock Cottage gains its name from the unique circular window the cottage has been built around. The 4 stone quarts that make up the circular window were discovered buried in the garden and had originally been produced to house the clock face at Lydgate Church but following storm damage they were rendered useless and given to the then Vicar.

In 2019 the stones were returned to their former glory housing the clock window in Clock Cottage.

Screened off from the main residence for dual-privacy, externally Clock Cottage offers two parking spaces and a private enclosed patio space with hot tub. Internally, viewers will find an open plan ground floor layout; the lounge features a stunning feature ‘clock’ window, whilst the kitchen is fitted with a range of matching units, integrated appliances and space for dining. Additionally, there is a storage cupboard which is plumbed for a downstairs WC.

The first floor features two double bedrooms and a bathroom. Clock Cottage is completed by a balcony with a wonderful backdrop towards Stockport Road.

Personal viewing of the main detached residence will reveal three floors of beautifully presented accommodation. The ground floor features an imposing entrance hall with solid wood ‘Parquet’ style flooring, a large lounge with feature multi-fuel stove, a useful home office and a stunning kitchen with original stone flooring, matching units, granite worktops, a range and integrated appliances including a double oven, double fridge-freezer either side of the larder unit, microwave and dishwasher. The kitchen open to a wonderful garden room with stone flooring and bi-fold doors which take full advantage of the vistas beyond the garden.

The ground floor is completed by a useful utility/boot room and guest WC.

A switchback staircase leads to the first-floor where viewers will discover four double bedrooms, a shower room and an additional family bathroom which comprises of a low-level WC, hand wash basin, deep bath and shower unit.

The second floor features the primary suite, with a large double bedroom accompanied by a dressing room and stunning en-suite bathroom with a further roll-top bath.

Ideal for easy access to the Saddleworth villages and neighbouring townships, the property also features wonderful walks on its doorstep, including Hartshead Pike, Pots & Pans, Dovestone reservoir and the Huddersfield Narrow Canal.

The villages themselves offer a wealth of amenities including bespoke local shops, café-bars, pubs and restaurants.
