IF you like the look of a traditional home, but appreciate all mod cons and plenty of space, then Scout End may be just for you.

This stone end cottage in Mytholmroyd has undergone an extensive refurbishment programme, literally turning the house upside down and back to front.

The result is a very stylish and highly individual home which combines character features with modern design.

Located off Scout Road on the outskirts of Mytholmroyd, it has excellent public transport links, only a third of a mile from Mytholmroyd Rail Station and a mile and a half from Hebden Bridge.

There’s a great feeling of space in the property which combines the best elements of old and new. A gas central heating system and hard wood double glazing have been installed and there is electric under floor heating to the bathroom.

Light and airy with a high-beamed ceiling, the stylish open plan, well-equipped, dining kitchen has French windows which open out onto the garden while the windows at the front boast some excellent valley views.

Bright and spacious, the living room has a high-beamed ceiling and exposed stonework, windows to the front and back, oak flooring and a stone fireplace with a wood-burning stove. It has open access to the dining kitchen.

The master bedroom has a double glazed window to the front while French windows open out onto a secluded side patio area. Built-in wardrobes in a second bedroom provide good storage space. A third bedroom features a stone fireplace.

Scout End’s bathroom has been fitted with a stylish four piece suite and the electric under-floor heating will be a cosy treat when colder weather arrives.

The delightful rear gardens extend into the wooded hillside and feature external lighting, while the secure flagged patio/courtyard area to the side also features a secure bike store beneath the deck.

The driveway provides off-road parking to the side of the house.

With the wooded backdrop at the rear and valley views to the front, you get the best of rural living in a home which is very close to the major amenities.

Coupling traditional exposed beams and stonework with the latest in household comforts, Scout End is proof you can have the best of both worlds.
