65 Longfield Road, Todmorden, for sale with Peter David Properties for £350,000

Tucked away in the basement of the semi-detached property in Longfield Road, Todmorden, are some of the most desirable and attractive features any buyer could wish for.

On the lower ground floor of the four-storey property are two rooms to thrill those who enjoy a taste of luxury.

A shower area leads to a sauna measuring 5ft 2in by 5ft 7in with tiled flooring, stone seats and coal burned sauna facilities.

And if that’s not enough to tantalise you, there’s a neighbouring room measuring 13ft by 14ft 11in housing a tiled Jacuzzi pool with jets and uplighting.

This large period property is full of character and has been painstakingly restored and modernised over a number of years.

It now provides a spacious and versatile home boasting a wealth of high-quality fixtures and fittings across four floors.

And if you should ever tire of admiring the handiwork that has gone into this property, you only need to glance out of the window to enjoy the far-reaching views over the town and valley.

Despite its semi-rural feel thanks to these outstanding views, the house is within easy reach of Todmorden town centre, which benefits from a handy railway station situated a short walk from the shops, bars and cafes.

The entrance hall, which has oak flooring, coat hanging space and a staircase to the first floor, leads to the open-plan living, study and dining area which measures 34ft 6in max by 19ft 9in max.

This is a superb living space with a large double-glazed bay window to the front, overlooking the garden and surrounding countryside.

It has a feature fireplace with inset gas stove fire and a decorative wooden surround. The study area has tiled flooring.

The dining room measures 17ft 2in by 13ft 2in and has inset spot lighting and display shelving with uplighting.

The modern fitted kitchen is again a good size - 16ft 2in max by 13ft 6in - and has a range of wall and base units with granite work tops. It’s an incredible entertaining space, having room for an American-style fridge-freezer, and there’s also a wine rack if you prefer your drinks at room temperature.

Feature dual stone archways lead to a large conservatory measuring 15ft 6in by 12ft 4in, which has two radiators and patio doors that open out on to the decked sun terrace.

On the first floor are two spacious bedrooms, with bedroom one (13ft 9in by 12ft 3in) having an original fireplace and French doors that open on to a balcony with far-reaching views.

Bedroom two has fitted wardrobes, a feature fireplace and a window seat.

On the second f loor are two more large bedrooms and each floor has its own bathroom.

The property has a private walkway to the front, framed by iron railings. There’s a driveway to the side and, at the rear, a large decked area and lawned garden.

The home is for sale with Peter David Properties, New Road, Hebden Bridge, for £350,000.
