Key Features

Upper Butterworth End is positioned in a stunning location overlooking the Ryburn valley, close to the desirable villages of Ripponden and Barkisland. Despite the rural setting there's a regular bus service to local shops, supermarkets, pubs and restaurants. For travel further afield Sowerby Bridge train station is just a five minute drive away, and offers fast and frequent trains to Leeds and Manchester, making both local and national rail travel a breeze.

The detached property sits on a good-sized plot adjoining a small park home development for the over 45s. With incredible views in every direction it's a very peaceful location close to the entrance to the Norland Moor local nature reserve, offering outstanding walking and cycling on the doorstep.

As for the house itself, it's something special! Grade II listed, over recent months the property has been carefully renovated from top-to-bottom, and is now a very welcoming home. With excellent living space downstairs plus three double bedrooms and the bathroom upstairs, every single room is a delight. Exposed stone and original beams are abundant and beautifully balanced with a modern finish to bring the house right up-to-date. Ready to move straight into, all there is to do is unpack and start enjoying the good life!

Beginning at the front door, and for starters there's a very practical stone-flagged lobby, perfect for kicking off your shoes before entering the main house. The inner door opens into a wonderful kitchen-dining room, where you'll immediately be stuck by the sheer amount of space on offer. The large L-shaped kitchen offers very generous workspace and storage ideal for a busy family and is beautifully lit by the stone mullioned windows on two sides. There's a double oven, microwave and induction hob built-in, and an American style fridge-freezer and dishwasher are included too. There's space for a large dining table, making this a very appealing layout for entertaining family and friends over food.

Stairs leads from this room to the first floor bedrooms and a door alongside opens into the very large reception room. This space is simply gorgeous and flooded with light thanks to more mullioned windows and a triple aspect. The ceiling is criss-crossed with beams and there's an original fireplace with wood-burning stove, perfect for cosy nights in during the winter months. The living space consists of two interlinked rooms connected via stone steps, creating the opportunity to use the two areas slightly differently - perhaps you'd use the lower area as a reading room, a formal dining room, play room or large study / studio space? The flexibility is a real bonus.

Also adjoining the kitchen-dining room to the rear of the house is a very large laundry room. Again this space offers wonderful versatility and has been equipped with a utility sink, washing machine and tumble drier allowing you to adapt the remaining space to suit your needs. There's a useful WC just off here too.

Moving upstairs, we'll find three double bedrooms and the family bathroom, all well sized and beautifully lit. The master bedroom is a very large L shape, with plenty of room for the largest of double beds and generous space for wardrobes too. The adjoining shower room comprises a large corner shower with basin, and there's also access from the master bedroom into a large useful storage room in the eaves.

Bedroom two is also an excellent double, and like the other rooms has wonderful character from the exposed stonework. Bedroom three is bigger again, with a sloping ceiling creating a cosy, intimate feel; this room could possibly be sub-divided to create a fourth bedroom or study, if you wish. Finally, the house bathroom is also a great size, and has a bath with shower over, WC and large basin.

Outside the house is surrounded on three sides by sunny garden space, bounded neatly by Yorkshire stone walls. The front and rear are laid mostly to lawn, with perennial plants adding colour and interest. On the south aspect there's a delightful split-level walled garden, accessed from the front or rear and also directly from the living room. There's a wonderful, almost Mediterranean feel here, with feature archways and tumbling plants creating a huge amount of privacy. This would be an ideal spot for seeking shade on a sunny day, relaxing with a book or hosting a barbeque. Alongside here there's also the bonus of an excellent large stone outbuilding with power and a WC. This would be perfect for hobbies and has potential for conversion into further living space, subject to planning consents, enhancing the already excellent living space available in the main house.

On a practical note, the house has been entirely re-wired and re-plumbed as part of the renovation works. Heating is provided by radiators in each room powered by an LPG gas combination boiler, plus a woodburning stove in the living room. There is a shared septic tank for drainage, with a £200 per year fee payable for maintenance of the septic tank and estate road. Private driveway parking is available for two cars close to the front door.

To summarise, this is a one-of-a-kind home in a very appealing location. With excellent living space and generously-sized rooms throughout it's an adaptable property just waiting for someone to move in and unpack!
