Stoodley View is tucked away in the heart of the conservation village of Heptonstall. Famous for its iconic churchyard, the village has good local amenities including a couple of excellent pubs, a community-run post office & shop, superb tearooms and a primary school. Hebden Bridge, with its range of independent shops, bars and restaurants, is just a mile away and easily accessible on foot or by bus, and has a railway station offering regular and swift services to Leeds, Manchester and beyond. Heptonstall is also perfectly placed for easy access to stunning open countryside, with beautiful walks from the doorstep in every direction. The trail running is fabulous too - you'll be out on the moors almost immediately, with multiple options for adventures outdoors.

This Grade II listed property dates from the 1700s and has been in the same ownership for more than 20 years. Immaculately maintained throughout that time, the windows and front door have both been recently replaced with accoya wood to ensure minimal maintenance for years to come. With two double bedrooms, two large receptions plus the surprise of a delightful garden space to the rear, the whole property is an absolute delight. Beautifully decorated throughout to complement the wonderful period features, this is a sophisticated but fun home of the highest quality. Simply unpack, relax and start enjoying the good life!

Let's start at the front door, which opens into a small lobby area, ideal for coats and shoes. An inner door opens into the wonderful living room, which is south-facing and very sunny. Features abound in here, with criss-crossing beams, an exposed wood floor and stunning mullion windows, plus a gorgeous fireplace creating the focal point. This is the perfect place to relax, so put your feet up on the sofa or bask in the sun on the window-seat - wherever you choose you're sure to love spending time in here!

A door to the rear leads into the very generous dining-kitchen. This is another fabulous space ideal for entertaining, with room for a large table and quirky yet perfectly functional kitchen fittings lending an eclectic feel. Invite friends around for coffee or food - this very social room is sure to become the heart of the home.

From the kitchen steps lead through the window and up onto a very cleverly designed patio garden - a small but perfectly formed place to relax outside. It's surprisingly private out here and the sheltered, sunny spot enjoys a very attractive outlook over the rooftops to open countryside beyond.

Back inside, and stairs from the kitchen take us to the first floor, where there are two double bedrooms & the bathroom. The master bedroom is simply stunning, a large room with sloping ceilings and calming decor, again with lovely features. The standout here is the row of mullion windows with seating underneath - with a great village view this is sure to become one of your favourite lookout spots! If you wish is should be possible to subdivide this room to create a double bedroom plus single / study, subject to the necessary consents.

Bedroom two is a smaller double, with exposed stone walls and views over the patio and surrounding buildings. This room has a really cosy feel and there's plenty of space for a double bed and large wardrobe, plus a built in cupboard alongside the chimney breast.

The bathroom completes the first floor and is a good size with lots of light thanks to the large roof window overhead. The character continues in here with more exposed stone nicely contrasted with vibrant yellow paintwork. There's a bath with electric shower over, WC & basin.

An opening from the landing leads to the excellent loft space, which is part-boarded and perfect for storage. Heating and hot water in the property is provided by a gas combination boiler located in the kitchen, plus an electric stove in the living room.

So that's the inside of the house. Outside, in addition to the lovely patio garden to the rear there's a small stone flagged area to the front, ideal for a few garden pots or sitting out and watching the world go by.

To summarise this spacious cottage has a brilliant location, bags of character and is brilliantly presented throughout. We don't expect it to be on the market long so don't delay, call 24/7 today or go online to the EweMove website and book your place to view on our Open Day, Saturday 12th August. We're waiting to show you around!
