Do you need a lesson in designing an elegant home? Or would you like to receive a glowing report from your friends when they step over the threshold?

School days are said to be the happiest of your life. If you agree, you can revisit the scholarly structure without the tedious homework - but with the benefit of breath-taking contemporary styling.

Situated next to the canal in the heart of Walsden village is a select development of five new homes which have been individually designed in the former village school in Birks Lane.

All five homes - one with four bedrooms, the others having three - are now for sale and all differ slightly in terms of their design and layout.

Each has an open-plan kitchen diner and living space, a ground floor master bedroom, ground floor bathroom and additional bedrooms and a second bathroom on the first floor.

All properties include allocated private parking and an enclosed garden.

Prospective purchasers who can move quickly to secure a plot may have the opportunity to choose internal fixtures and fittings for kitchens and bathrooms.

The kitchen diner comes complete with integrated dishwasher, fridge and freezer and there is ample room for a table and chairs.

Large windows flood the properties with light, allowing residents to take advantage of the open views and show off the contemporary styling to its best effect.

The homes are each for sale for offers in the region of £189,950 - for information, or to arrange a viewing, contact J Greenwood Properties, Halifax Road, Todmorden.
