Located in an elevated position above Luddendenfoot, Blackwood Hall offers a wonderful feeling of seclusion, hidden away off the lane behind a stone boundary wall. There's a small cluster of premium properties here, and Lime Trees is one of two very impressive detached homes set on their own private driveway on the site of the former parish church.

Set against a backdrop of open countryside and enjoying incredible views over the Calder valley, the location is second to none, and deer, fox and an array of birdlife are frequent visitors to the sizeable gardens. Despite the tucked away feel, the friendly local community is close-by and it's just a short stroll to Luddendenfoot for an easy commute and access to the towns of the Calder Valley, including Hebden Bridge which is 3 miles away. The closest railway station is less than 2 miles away at Mytholmroyd, from where regular services run to Leeds & Manchester. The property is also located within the catchment area of Luddendenfoot Academy primary school, rated Outstanding by OFSTED.

Lime Trees was stone built during the late 1980s, and offers over 2200 square feet of living space arranged around an unusual and impressive octagonal reception hall. This space doubles as the dining room and features an enormous floor-to-ceiling window on one side with a galleried landing above. This unique layout results in large rooms throughout the property, many with dual aspects creating a wonderful quality of light.

In addition to the reception hall, the ground floor includes a large living room with fireplace for cosy evenings in, an excellent office, generous breakfast kitchen, cloakroom and useful utility / boot room, as well as access into a large double garage adjoining the house. On the first floor there are three double bedrooms (one ensuite), plus a smaller double / large single, the family bathroom and a very large additional reception room over the garage. This space is currently used as a second living room / family room, but offers flexibility for many purposes - perhaps for running a business from home or as a large studio, gym, or further bedroom space?

The whole house is beautifully maintained and decorated throughout, with quality fixtures and fittings, a neutral colour palette and excellent floor coverings. Fans of DIY need not apply, as you'll be able to move straight in and slowly make any changes over time.

Outside there are large gardens to the front and rear, both beautifully planted with minimum maintenance in mind. To the front a gravelled driveway sweeps around creating parking for several cars in addition to the two spaces in the garage. The front garden is a mix of lawn and mature planting which frames the outstanding view across the valley to perfection.

Just outside the back door there's a lovely courtyard facing to the south-west. This is a real suntrap and the ideal spot for dining al-fresco or a barbeque. A wandering path takes us up behind the house through an area of shrubs and perennials which have been thoughtfully chosen to provide year-round colour, with a natural spring burbling in the background. Above here is a good-sized lawn, a greenhouse and a large kitchen garden lined with fruit trees, perfect for growing seasonal vegetables. The summerhouse alongside provides a great spot to relax with a drink and admire your handiwork, and also enjoys lovely far-reaching views over the house.

Some practicalities: The house is connected to all mains services and heating & hot water are provided by a gas combination boiler located in the kitchen. All windows are double-glazed. There is also a security alarm fitted.
