If you are looking for a quiet life, this much improved three bedroom detached house at the head of a cul-de-sac in Copley village might just be for you.

The property has plenty of attractive features inside, but anyone who loves gardening or just being in the open air will be drawn towards the magnificent enclosed rear garden at 20, Lydbrook Park.

Not only is it larger than the norm. Within the criss-cross of decking and borders is a garden shed that can double up as an outside office and another unit too to take all your gardening equipment.

Inside, the lounge features a living flame gas fire with Adam-style surround, granite hearth with an ornate cast iron and tiled inlay. It also picks up lots of light from a bay window.

Double doors open into a large dining kitchen, from which in turn you can access a large conservatory.

Upstairs are two good sized doubles and a single bedroom with a house bathroom.

Moving back outside, the house has a pebbled driveway with a car port to keep you dry while unloading the kids or the shopping.

There’s an external utility room plumbed in for a washing machine and with enough space for a fridge freezer and dryer. Next to it is a tool shed with an access door to the rear garden.

Lydbrook Park is a particularly pleasant part of Copley with walks galore along the Calder and Hebble Canal and the river Calder.

Motorway links are good too with the M62 junction at Ainley Top just 10 minutes drive.
