A MAGIFICENT detached house by the canalside in Mytholmroyd is our featured property this week.

This splendid 4/5 bedroom home stands in ¾ acre of outstanding manicured gardens with pond and bounded on one elevation by the Rochdale Canal with two moorings.

The garden is divided up into specific areas such as a herb garden, in a cart wheel of brick paving with water feature, orchard with hard and soft fruit, pond with bridge over and adjacent bog garden, wildflower banking, rose bed, large patio, decking at canal level with BBQ, various herbaceous borders and a large level lawn with a functioning well.

Picturesque Reedacres at Redacres is equally green and environmentally friendly on the inside too.

It was built 29 years ago, to insulation standards that, even now, regulations are struggling to achieve.

It was constructed with two cavities, one with 150mm thick polystyrene walled in, continuing between ground floor joists and on top of roof joists filled with fibreglass.

A ventilation system was installed at construction stage which has since been modified to incorporate an air-to-air heat pump, which heats or cools, dependent on the season, automatically.

Underfloor heating has recently been installed to the ground floor to supplement the heat pump when or if necessary.

A tour of this spacious family home is a must.

The dwelling comprises: a ground floor, vestibule entrance with two locking doors opening into spacious central hallway.

The comfortable lounge has a conservatory off it, there is a snug dining room, kitchen, office/study, utility room with condensing gas boiler and cylinder linked to solar water panels, cloakroom leading to downstairs w.c. and washbasin, and integral triple garage.

The first floor is accessed by open stairs to a landing with four bedrooms (two en-suite) and recent modernised house bathroom.

There is fitted furniture to three bedrooms and there is a second floor/attic, large attic bedroom and door leading to plant room.

The triple garages have electronic part glazed doors, with boarded floor to roof space currently used for storage.

The doors open out into a large circular brick drive with a feature centre circle. Adjoining the garages are outbuildings currently used for storage but could easily be adapted for other uses.

The canal moorings have provision for metered electric and water supplies.

You are a stone’s throw from Mytholmroyd with its mix of shops, restaurants and choice of schools, and the railway station is a few minutes away with links to Leeds and Manchester. There are also regular buses towards Halifax and Hebden Bridge.
