AUTHOR, artist and traveller William Holt fell in love with it.
So did succeeding owners, and when you see the historic Grade II listed Kilnhurst Old Hall, it’s highly likely you will too.
Holt lived in the Elizabethan residence, which enjoys a wealth of architectural features, for 40 years and the home has had a heritage plaque granted to it to mark the famous maverick’s devotion to it.
This beautiful home also enjoys the added benefit of being an established, five-star silver award residence, awarded to the present owners by the English Tourist Board, which can be further perused at the future purchaser’s discretion, subject to the usual consents.
It is a graciously appointed five-bedroomed accommodation with up to ten acres of beautiful, well-stocked gardens and land.
The gas centrally-heated home comprises a stone porch, entrance lobby, drawing room, formal dining room (or second reception room), a “snug”/bedroom five, breakfast kitchen, utility room, separate WC, vaulted wine cellar, landings and four very well-proportioned bedrooms with three very well equipped en suite facilities.
Externally, Kilnhurst Old Hall retains wonderful well-stocked gardens and ten acres of land (including approximately two good grazing acres).
The property is presently on town water supply and mains drains. It is ideal for sustainable living, with fresh spring water available and land for planting.
Outdoor features also include a summerhouse, a gazebo, dovercote and workshop facilities, and it has dawn to dusk outside lighting and ornamental garden floods. It has a Yorkshire stone flagged enclosed patio and several other seating areas.
Some woodlands and very ample private parking complete this most attractive property, which is within easy reach of town centre facilities in Todmorden and Hebden Bridge, while nestling in the Kilnhurst countryside.
The property is on the market for £625,000.
l THIS property is available for sale at Anthony J. Turner.
