Property of the Week: New house on hillside offers luxury living and views

As natural promentaries go there are few across Calderdale like the Hough at Northowram that offer such far reaching, southerly views.

It is into this landscape a new home 42a, Hough has been constructed, a fabulous natural stone building with five bedrooms (two en-suite) and a house bathroom and a welter of rooms on the lower ground living floor.

Space is the first thing that will strike you about this property which is on the market with Ryder & Dutton for £435,000. It simply oozes it and the great thing about buying new is that you start with virtually a blank canvas.

It also takes into account the need to access outdoors space with two double doors opening out onto the south facing garden, so summer drinks and barbecues become a simple exercise.

On entry level from the road that links Northowram village to Shibden is a large hallway off which each of the five bedrooms are situated.

Making your way downstairs is a large lounge at 19 feet by 13 feet and a super kitchen space that opens out into what is described as a family area which again is almost 19 feet by 12 feet.

This level also has a cloakroom, a good sized utility and a store room, or for those who need to work from home potential office space.

Outside on the upper level is a shared driveway off which there is a large double garage with an electric up and over door.

Around the front is a stone flagged patio terrace looking down onto the private garden.

Northowram is a bustling village with good road links to the motorways and a thriving village shopping centre.
