It’s said an Englishman’s home is his castle - and this property has a head start because it is part of Castle Lodge East.
A characterful home with private off-road parking and a detached outbuilding, the two bedroom ground floor flat is for sale on a freehold basis and, although it is set in an imposing location, its Council Tax outlay is Band B.
The property, which forms part of Castle Lodge East, Halifax Road, Todmorden, has lots of internal space.
In addition to an elegant and spacious living room, the flat has a large dining kitchen, a pantry and a large cellar as well as a bathroom and an en-suite shower to the main bedroom.
Access to the property is via a private driveway with wrought iron gates and there is parking for several cars.
On the ground floor, a central hallway offers access to all rooms and uPVC French doors lead out on to a paved garden, ideal for summer evenings.
The dining kitchen is fitted with a range of bespoke base units with solid wood work surfaces.
A large double-glazed window overlooks the garden. The dining kitchen houses a ceramic double sink and pantry with power, lighting and shelving.
It has an exposed stone feature wall, exposed ceiling beams and an inglenook fireplace with a gas stove set on a stone hearth.
The large living room, which measures 4.98m by 5.42m, has retained many original features including a ceiling rose, coving and picture rail.
It has a wall-mounted gas fire and built-in storage cupboards.
All rooms are on ground floor level, so the property might be of particular interest to someone who has difficulty accessing stairs but would like to enjoy the benefits of a spacious home with plenty of parking.
Bedroom one measures 6m by 3.65m and has a fitted carpet, fitted wardrobes and a TV aerial point as well as a fully tiled walk-in shower.
Bedroom two measures 3.43m by 2.36m and has a fitted carpet.
All rooms benefit from central heating.
The bathroom is fitted with a white suite comprising panelled bath, low flush wc and wash basin. There are frosted double-glazed windows to two sides, laminate flooring and fully tiled walls.
The property’s large cellar would provide useful storage space or could be used as a workshop.
The detached outbuilding has plumbing, lighting and power and has been fitted with a range of wooden kitchen units.
It has uPVC double-glazed windows, a multi-fuel stove in working order and a pull-down loft ladder providing access to a boarded area for extra storage.
The property has a private shared driveway, paved patio and garden areas.
The flat is for sale with J Greenwood Properties, Halifax Road, Todmorden, for offers in the region of £189,950.
