With the beautiful backdrop of Colden Valley this family-friendly farmhouse sits within two acres and is surrounded by outstanding views. The interior is a contemporary conversion with some charming features and modern details combined with robust eco credentials.

Higher Heath offers exceptional privacy; located in a moorland setting in the upper Colden valley, it is accessed via a lane leading through a series of fields, The house is very appealing on the approach, you will notice the panoramic expanse surrounding the property with large windows sensitively chosen to blend into the Yorkshire stone.

The primary entrance leads into the welcoming kitchen diner which is the heart of this stunning home, a perfect blend of traditional features and the convenience of modern living. Fitted with a range of bespoke units alongside the comforting glow of the Aga, you are sure to spend many an hour relaxing with friends around the dining table. To the rear of the kitchen diner there is a wonderfully characterful multi use space which was once the old dairy, with twin velux windows providing ample light this would make a great snug, home office or hobby room.

The kitchen diner leads through to the lounge with a large multi fuel stove providing a homely focal point for the space. Full height windows allow light to flood in and draw in the breath-taking views that surround this stunning residence. To the rear of the lounge there is a good sized dining room, once again the views from the windows are a reminder of the stunning setting which surrounds this wonderfully crafted home. The owners have taken every opportunity to link the property to its surroundings with large windows and fully glazed doors in each room offering seamless access to the exterior.

A birch ply staircase leads up from the corner of the lounge to the three double bedrooms on the upper floor. One of the bedrooms forms part of a self-contained studio flat providing perfect guest accomodation or offering the potential to draw an income from holiday makers (subject to necessary consents). A side door from the studio leads out onto a mezzanine balcony which hovers above the barn and provides a lovely space to sit and enjoy a drink or two whilst taking in the splendour of the surroundings.

The property has two bathrooms, one family bathroom with bath and walk in shower and a second shower room located within the self-contained unit.

The interior aesthetic feels light and modern yet works perfectly with its surroundings, it is a blank canvas with all of the walls freshly painted and there is a pleasing cohesiveness of solid wooden flooring underfoot in all but the kitchen which has an earthy slate floor.

This property offers the new owners amazing flexibility and boundless potential, the conversion of the adjoining barn is yet to be developed. The owners have been bold in their choices for energy supply and in doing so have laid the foundations to future proof this property with the opportunity to live completely off grid should you wish. You will notice a huge bank of solar panels, water is from the spring and there is a newly fitted waste treatment unit to the rear. Currently the central heating and Aga are oil powered. The insulation in the property is exceptional with 200mm underfloor, 180mm in the walls and 300mm in the ceilings making this an incredibly warm house.

The two acres of land surrounding the property is a haven for hares, ground-nesting birds and is an evening haunt for local barn owls. It provides plenty of opportunities for embracing outdoor living, with potential to tend the land for vegetable, fruit or flower growing. There is sufficient meadowland for livestock should you wish. There is an attractive wildlife friendly pond to the rear, home to a few frogs, wild ducks and even the occasional heron.

Higher Heath is perfectly positioned for the wide range of outdoor activities in the area, with extensive walking and mountain bike routes all accessible from the house. Hebden Bridge Train Station is a 15 minute drive away and offers transpennine routes both to Leeds and Manchester within 40 minutes. May's General store is nearby and there are an array of independent retailers, restaurants, bars, cinema and live music in Hebden Bridge and Todmorden.
