RETAINING a wealth of character and charm, Leeming Hall Cottage, Halifax Road, Todmorden, is spacious yet evokes a cosy feel, and boasts some beautiful gardens.

It comprises a light, bright, south-facing two-bedroom period stone built semi-detached cottage with well maintained gardens, ample driveway parking and a separate office.

Leeming Hall Cottage enjoys very easy access to the Todmorden amenities and the town’s trans-Pennine Leeds/Manchester rail links.

Once through the side entrance porch you enter the wooden-floored inset-spotlit hallway which gives access to the lounge, kitchen, and an inner hall which provides access to the master bedroom and bathroom.

The sitting room is spacious at 15 feet two inches by 13 feet ten inches (4.62m x 4.22m), but it is still cosy with a delightful stone feature fireplace and cast-iron Esse stove with hot plate inset.

The exposed beamed ceiling has inset dimmer spot lighting while the mullioned windows to the front feature stone seating.

The front entrance door leads to an enclosed mature garden, while a spiral staircase leads to the second galleried bedroom, landing and a storage room.

The kitchen has an ample range of wall and base units with further storage cupboards, a butcher block and granite work tops, a gas-fired Aga providing heating for the water.

Off the inner hall, the master bedroom has custom-made hand-crafted bespoke oak wardrobes providing excellent storage space with mirrored frontage and it has a high sloping ceiling with exposed beams.

On the first floor a galleried landing provides access to the storage room, which would also make an ideal children’s bedroom, and the home’s second bedroom, which also boasts exposed beams.

The detached office is generously sized with external access, laminated flooring and a window to the side, equipped with lighting, telephone point and ample power sockets.

Leeming Hall Cottage offers an enclosed mature garden to the front, predominantly lawned with flag stone walkways and perimeter fencing. The driveway to the side provides parking for several cars.

The enclosed paved courtyard garden is to the side of the building and there is a further enclosed garden, which is partly elevated, at the back.
