A grand and impressive Hall that is rooted in Calderdale’s local history. This stunning home is situated in its own large grounds with a large sweeping private driveway leading to the property. The grounds are a beautifully tended Victorian style garden that is as beautiful now as it was when it was open to the public. This substantial and well-built stone building stands proudly, an imposing and regal building that will not fail to impress. Situated in impressive grounds with its own large annex cottage property, this house is perfect for someone looking for something with a touch of class.
The main building is currently separated into three independent dwellings, however, it could easily be reconfigured back into one larger property if required:
- The main property is a stunning two bedroomed self-contained house that shows some of the original features of the property, with large rooms and grand entrance hallway. Anyone looking for a luxury property with fantastic potential need look no further.
- Apartment A (accessed via rear external staircase) is the larger of the two and has been expertly decorated and presented throughout, offering the perfect self-contained apartment.
- Apartment B (accessed via the rear lower door) offers another well-proportioned apartment – potentially as a Granny Flat.
Both apartments are self-contained and present a multitude of opportunities including the potential as rentals in the growing industry of Airbnb (an online marketplace which lets people rent out their properties or spare rooms to guests).
Located in its own private estate yet with easy access onto the A58 Halifax Road and offering good transport links into the village of Hipperholme and Halifax town centre. The property also has easy access to the M62 motorway offering access into Leeds, Bradford or Manchester. Both the Brighouse and Halifax train stations are a short drive away, offering cross Pennine connections and a London train. The property is also within short commute distance of both outstanding primary and secondary schools. Its proximity to the vibrant village centre of Hipperholme provides access to a range of shops and services as well as a number of bars and restaurants.
Due to the unique nature of the property, interesting format and truly stunning sweeping gardens, an appointment to view is a must to fully appreciate what is on offer. By just stepping into this impressive building you will undoubtedly find a property to fall in love with.
