This pretty and central 2br Hebden Bridge cottage has great historic character.
The cottage sits on a quiet laneway facing the hillside. It’s very well located being 5 mins walk to St George’s square (through Calder Holmes park), less than a minute to Hebden Bridge train station. With regular access to Manchester (40 mins) and Leeds (50mins) it’s perfect for those seeking the calm of countryside and pleasures of a great cultural community, whether commuting or living and working locally.
The cottage is cosy and has pleasant separation of space inside, with an additional outside laundry room, toilet and a waste room along our courtyard’s stone wall.
Perhaps you’d like to come inside and have a look around?
Th kitchen-lounge is a lovely room.
The stone fireplace has a great multifuel fire, brilliant for chilly evenings.
It has a beautiful and user-friendly benchtop with a built in fridge, gas stovetop and oven.
The mullion windows give the room great light and character.
Let’s go upstairs …
The staircase nook is a good spot for ornaments.
The first floor landing leads to the good sized bathroom with a bath and shower and heated towel rack. Like the rest of the rooms it has its own radiator so never gets cold.
The main bedroom is also off the first floor landing. Again, it has lovely mullion windows and a nice view of the gardens, trees and hill behind the house.
The coalfireplace is quite pretty.
The landing has a good sized built in cupboard and the bedroom houses a three door wardrobe.
Up another flight of stairs we come to the attic bedroom. Its another really lovely space with good natural light from its windows.
This is a winter view from the rooftop window ..
And a little later in the day from the main bedroom.
One of the nicest things about this cottage is the neighbours. In this photo you can see the gate at the back of the garden that’s used as a spot to feed the sheep.
Higher up the hill they run rare breed goats (worth a walk and a look).
Surrounding the small field on the hill is forrest with a stream running down that travels under a culvert towards the canal. The council clears it regulalry and there’s little risk from floods. Because hills are full of mature trees, the mornings are full of bird-song. Its really great to wake up to. The cottage is around 180 years old, but its location falls just outside the heritage zone, so the regulations for any renovations are normal rather than historically strict.
We think that local folks are likely to buy the cottage in which case they probably know a great deal about the surrounds. But just in case, lets go outside.
If going to the train station its less than a minute’s walk, yet passes by the allotments and over the canal and river.
The allotments bank onto the river Calder.
A five minute walk along the canal path (below) leads to the small stone bridge that crosses into Hebden town.
We often prefer to walk through Calder Holmes park (the green adjacent to the canal) because its pretty.
The park’s great for families. It has this children’s playground (above), as well as football, tennis, and basketball, a skating ramp, and a cafe where they sell gourmet icecreams.
Alongside the park runs the river.
The track alongside it is great for dogwalkers, strollers and bike riders.
And it forms one of the pleasant features of Hebden Bridge town.
So, a lovely and livable cottage with pleasant surrounds. We hope you liked this brief tour enough to want to come and have a look. If so, please let me know at my email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
I’ll get back to you as soon as I can, and help arrange a viewing. Feel welcome to ask any questions as well.
