This detached residence occupies a pleasant location at the head of a private driveway that serves just a handful of prestigious homes and takes in some fabulous long-distance views. The property was constructed in 2001 for the current owners who have just finished a further programme of updating, redecoration, and newly laid carpets in most areas. There are 4 generously sized double bedrooms which makes this an ideal family home in a great location, with easy access to the M62 at junctions 23 or 24, or if you rely on public transport, you will find a railway station in nearby Slaithwaite where you can catch the trans Pennine trains, or opt for one of the local bus services. Externally there is a block paved parking area, access to the integral double garage, access down the side of the house to a good-sized paved patio, raised garden area, and couple of steps up onto the newly constructed decked terrace where you can sit and relax or entertain your guests whilst enjoying superb views across the adjoining fields and far beyond towards the Pennine hills.
