Staups House, Staups Lane, Shibden is on the market with Hunters Estate Agents for �445,000

Houses with such imposing grandeur rarely come on the market, so if you have always desired owning a real piece of the past, Staups House in Shibden may be just the place you’ve been looking for.

The Grade II, triple fronted detached period house, forms part of the Shibden estate and was built in 1684, during the reign of Charles II.

Not only does it have real presence as you stand in front and cast your eye over its magnificent architecture, it occupies a most pleasant spot overlooking Shibden Valley, one of Calderdale’s most outstanding places of natural beauty.

The house is on the market with Hunters Estate Agency for £445,000 and offers five reception rooms, a dining kitchen and separate utility, five bedrooms, three of which are en suite plus a separate shower room and ground floor WC.

It is impossible to do justice to the historic charm of this property in words. Would-be buyers really do need to see it for themselves.

In the past it has been split into two individual homes and it has also been converted into a bed and breakfast business.

Outside the splendour goes on. To the front is a stone paved terrace. To each side, a driveway with a ramp to one end and in front of the double garage at the other is a space for parking for four or five cars. There’s room for another two across the road. Gardens extend up to Kell lane and include two ponds and a Victorian-style greenhouse.

Over the road path descends to a stream with a private decking area.
