CONTRACT READY. Formerly part of Ann Walker's Crow Nest estate is this three bedroom detached home situated in over 6 acres of green belt land with tremendous views overlooking the Shibden valley. The current layout of the property could relatively easily be changed to create at least one other bedroom. Rarely do properties like this one come to the market and whilst it would benefit from some renovations, provides an excellent family home with a large degree of privacy but within easy reach of local amenities. Telephone lines open until 8.30pm weekdays and 10am until 4pm weekends – please call or email to arrange a viewing.
The ideal home for anyone looking for tranquil, country living with some of the most fantastic views in Halifax. The property is situated right next to the bridle way which is ideal for someone to use the land for horses but also for country walks and mountain biking.
The property dates back to the 1800s and formed part of Ann Walker's Crow Nest estate. On her death, the estate passed to her nephew, Evan Charles Sutherland Walker, and he renovated the house in the 1860s. His initials sit to the front of the house. In 1866, an Act of Parliament was passed which enabled Mr Sutherland Walker to sell the estate and this home later passed to Samuel Green Webster who was known for Webster's Brewery.
Not only does this property have a fascinating history, it is also a rare find with many options for the next owner to make it their own home. The property is approached by Hag Lane. On entering the driveway your eyes are immediately drawn to the far reaching views to the front of the house.
Internally comprising to the ground floor; large entrance porch with plumbing but could easily be reconfigured to provide an entrance area and separate utility, hallway leading to the dining room. The dining room sits to the front of the house and therefore benefits from the stunning views with a large picture window. The kitchen opens up from the dining room and has a range of base and eye level units. The living room is also focussed on the views to the front and is a large yet cosy room. Located off the living room is what is currently used as a large office but could easily be used as another sitting room or playroom. A useful downstairs WC completes this floor. There is a small storage cellar to the house accessed via the hallway.
To the first floor there is a good amount of space which could relatively easily be reconfigured to provide more bedrooms and bathrooms. The master bedroom is a fantastic sized room, again with window to the front overlooking the views. There is a large dressing room situated off the master bedroom and could easily be split to form a dressing room and an ensuite bathroom to the master bedroom. Bedroom two is a large double bedrooms with deep in built cupboards which are situated next to the utility area. Therefore this provides a further option to link this bedroom and create another ensuite or enlarge the current utility area to create another bedroom. Finally to this floor is a further bedroom and bathroom with modern three piece suite.
Externally, the property certainly has the "wow" factor. Off street parking is provided by the aforementioned driveway in addition to the garage. There are gardens areas to the front, side and rear of the property and beyond this lies the land of approximately 6.4 acres. There are outbuildings/stables which would benefit from renovation but would then provide on site accommodation for those with equestrian needs. A title plan has been provided to show the full extent of the land.
Set to the picturesque Shibden Valley, the property has good access to local facilities in nearby villages as well as Halifax and Queensbury centres. Close by to the popular Salterlee school and having open countryside on the doorstep for lovely walks.
