There are occasions when the old adage “a picture tells a thousand words” applies perfectly.
And in considering how best to describe the wonderful Lower High Trees Farm at Greetland, this was the first thought that sprang to mind.
The valley that runs from West Vale to Barkisland over which this impressive property looks is one of Calderdale’s finest.
Nestled into the south facing side are many fine properties, though few can claim to offer what this one can.
For a start, within the impressive main house is a self-contained holiday let complete with two bedrooms, a living kitchen, bathroom and store room that will bring in useful extra income.
The property is set within a total of 1.5 acres, one acre of which is a paddock. Its gardens - again take a close look first at the photographs - are meticulously maintained and offer several vantage points from which to admire the local scenery.
Inside is a house that is truly flexible. On the ground floor, the main living area, is a lounge, sitting room, dining kitchen, two utility rooms and two pantries, an office/games/playroom, a study and a store room. So much scope to play with.
Upstairs in a separate part of the house to the holiday let are five double bedrooms’ the master and one other of which are en suite, and a house bathroom. There are several outbuildings too, the former dairy has been transformed into an office with fitted desk, internet and telephone points. There’s also a stone stable and outside store.
Greetland is a busy little village with plenty of good shops, pubs and restaurants in a relatively short distance. And it has an outstanding academy school and nursery.
Lower High Trees Farm is for sale with Charnock Bates for £765,000.
