Property of the week: A delightful site for home

Bethel Terrace, Brearley, Luddenden Foot
Bethel Terrace, Brearley, Luddenden Foot

Situated in one of the upper Calder Valley’s most attractive and picturesque settlements, this week’s featured property has much to commend it.

Bethel Terrace is a mature and substantial row of homes in Brearley, on the outskirts of Luddenden Foot, where there is an abundance of wildlife to watch and appreciate.

And this week’s home, being an end terrace, has the added bonus of a useful extension and plenty of upper windows from which to take in views across the surrounding fields.

The entrance porch leads to an attractive and spacious L-shaped lounge and dining room.

Described by the estate agents as a “really open” space for entertaining, this room measures 21ft 7in by 16ft in one direction and 21ft 7in by 24ft 8in in the other.

Ideal not only for entertaining - imagine a Christmas dinner, with the family seated round the table - it also provides a warm and welcoming treat on wintry days when only a real fire can warm the soul.

The lounge has a wood burning cast iron fireplace with a slate hearth and a large window to allow in plenty of light. The room has wooden flooring and neutral decor, meaning incoming owners can easily put their own stamp on the property.

The kitchen measures 12ft by 7ft 5in and has fitted wall and base units with a double cooker.

There is complementary tiling to the walls and the sink is situated under the window which looks out over the rear garden area. There are spotlights to the ceiling and a leg staircase leading up to the first floor.

On the first floor, the bathroom contains a new suite with toilet and a pedestal sink bath with ball and claw feet. There’s also a shower over the bath with a curtain, tiled walls to complement the suite and a window to the side overlooking open countryside.

Bedroom one measures 13ft by 9ft 9in, with a window to the front with views over the fields.

Bedroom two measures 10ft 11in by 9ft 3in and looks out to the back of the property. Both bedrooms have a ceiling light point and radiators.

The property also has a good-sized cosy attic bedroom measuring 9ft 4in by 8ft 10in. It is accessed via a leg staircase and has beams to the ceiling.

It has a Velux window, ceiling light point and radiator, and its own en suite which comprises a shower cubicle, toilet and wall-mounted sink.

The second floor also offers an area of under-eaves storage.

This second-floor bedroom might be the perfect place for a teenager to enjoy their own space - especially one who spends lots of time getting ready! Their own en suite would free up the house bathroom for the rest of its occupants.

Outside the property has an attractive front area and flagged walkway, while the rear garden terrace features an enclosed flagged garden area with a shed offering useful storage space.

The garden area has a fenced perimeter and there are gates to the rear and side.

Ready to move into, it’s a quality family home.

The property is for sale with Reeds Rains estate agents, Hebden Bridge, for offers in excess of £200,000.
