WOW! Like local history? Then you'll LOVE this! This stunning duplex cottage oozes history even down to the bespoke wallpaper on the stairs. It offers a fabulous open plan living space, kitchen with integrated appliances plus 3 double bedrooms, one ensuite, all set in 20 acres of private grounds.
Dating back to the late 1800's, Wildspur Mills were an integral part of the thriving textile industry in the Holme Valley. They were converted in 2004 to create a variety of residential properties and this spacious three bed duplex cottage now occupies one corner of what was originally the Hank Building.
This beautifully presented upside down home has three double bedrooms on the ground floor (one with ensuite) and a fabulous open plan living / dining / kitchen area complete with balcony plus a bathroom on the first floor. With large windows in every room, the whole property feels light and airy.
The current owners have styled it in such as a way as to embrace the historic context of the building including an eye-catching bespoke printed wallpaper on the stair well. They have also made some very modern improvements including fitting engineered oak floors throughout and installing a
state-of-the-art Mixergy hot water system (https://mixergy.co.uk/mixergy-tank/) plus new high tech NEOS electric radiators (https://www.trustelectricheating.co.uk/).
So let's explore the delights this property offers in a little more detail. As well as having the benefit of an allocated parking space right outside, the property has its own front door. Step inside and you're in a spacious hallway. Take a quick look up the stairs and you'll see the team from the Mill Manager's office (1934) watching and waiting to welcome you!
On this floor, there are the three bedrooms, all doubles. The main bedroom has an ensuite shower room plus additional understairs storage in the cupboard that also hosts the aforementioned state of the art hot water system. The second bedroom is used as a dressing room and the third as an office.
Heading upstairs, you will be totally mesmerized by the bespoke wallpaper which has been made from old sepia photos of the Mills' workforce. If your family is local, perhaps you might know someone in the photos!
On this first floor, there is a nicely appointed family bathroom and a stunning large open plan living area which divides neatly into 3 separate but connected spaces for cooking, dining and lounging. The kitchen has an excellent range of high gloss maroon base and wall units plus drawers, plenty of worktop space and integrated appliances including fridge, freezer, dishwasher and washing machine. The current owners have added an island in the dining area that complements the kitchen beautifully. The lounge area is large enough for a comfy corner sofa and occasional furniture. Patio doors lead out to a balcony where you can sit out and relax with a cuppa or a pre-dinner aperitif as you enjoy the babbling sound of New Mill Dike below.
Outside – There is allocated parking for 1 car immediately outside the property with additional parking available in the visitors' carpark. A decked balcony is accessed from the lounge and enjoys the morning sun so perfect for taking a break with a cuppa. If you enjoy a bit of gardening, there is a flower bed at the front that the current owners maintain with agreement from the management company. The owners of this delightful property have access to 20 acres of field and woodland; ideal for dog walking and picnicking in the summer. There are walks through these woods to the centre of New Mill and to Brooklands Garden Centre in Totties as well as to the popular Boot and Shoe pub in Scholes.
This house is in a great location as it's close to the centre of New Mill where you will find the local shops which include a Coop, a Post Office, two pharmacies and a renowned butcher's. There's also a popular Indian restaurant and great take aways. There's easy access to Holmfirth and the Holme Valley as well as to main commuter routes to Huddersfield, Manchester, Wakefield, Leeds and Sheffield. Buses run to Holmfirth, Huddersfield and Wakefield. For train travelers, it's a short drive to Brockholes railway station where you can take advantage the convenient hourly service between Huddersfield and Sheffield.
