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.
