Set within its own grounds, with landscaped gardens and an area of woodland, this week’s home offers an idyllic slice of upper Calder Valley life.
Arnsbrae, Wood End, Hebden Bridge, is loftily situated with outstanding views over the town and to the surrounding countryside.
Not only is it spacious and perfect for a growing family, it also offers delightful original features that date back to when the property was built - around 1925 - including fireplaces and oak wood floors.
And for anyone who needs additional storage or workshop space, there are three good-sized cellars, all with power and lighting.
Arnsbrae sits on a plot that extends to about three-quarters of an acre. To the front is a triangular-shaped garden extending to Keighley Road.
Pebbled paths lead to all manner of intriguing garden areas that will have green-fingered family members rushing to hunt out their gloves and secateurs - with others seeking out sunny or shaded spots in which to relax and enjoy this long-awaited summer weather. A snaked pebble path to either side of the house passes through mature flower beds to a patio area outside the conservatory and lawns.
A long driveway with ample parking is a boon for a property which is just a few minutes’ walk from Hebden Bridge town centre.
Substantial and detached, the house has a wealth of rooms which are spacious, functional and charming in equal measure.
The entrance hall is a room in itself. It measures more than 15ft by 10ft and has a twisted oak staircase, stained glass window, original panelling with delph rack, deep skirting boards and decorative coving. There’s also a small cloakroom with WC tucked away under the stairs.
There are two spacious reception rooms - a dining room with original marble and mahogany fireplace and a living room with a feature fireplace. The living room leads out into the conservatory, which has feature arched stone pillars and wall and ceiling lighting as well as a fan, ideal for those sweltering days.
The dining kitchen is another attractive and atmospheric room, with a range oven set to a slate-finished chimney breast.
On the first floor, a gallery style landing area has an original stained glass leaded window and arched ceiling entrance.
The four bedrooms are served by a family bathroom and separate shower room, both of which have leaded and stained glass windows.
Arnsbrae benefits from gas central heating and a security system. Full of character and charm, this property would suit a family who are in tune with its elegant period aura.
Arnsbrae is for sale with Peter David Properties, New Road, Hebden Bridge, for £610,000.
