Of all the valleys around Halifax, Wheatley is one you possibly will not hear as much about.
But while Shibden and the Calder Valley itself steal the headlines Wheatley valley, through which Hebble Brook run remains, to the outside world, an undiscovered gem.
This spacious detached home on a large corner plot in Hebble Vale Drive, is on the market with Redwoods for offers around £194,500. Its garden back onto Hebble Brook, which in days of heavy industry in the Halifax would feed among other places the dyeworks attached to the huge John Crossley carpet empire.
The first thing that strikes you is the size of this property’s rooms. There are two reception rooms and a modern kitchen which is part tiled with a range of modern wall and base units. There is an integrated double oven and grill, an integrated gas hob and dishwasher.
A spindle balustrade leads you up a flight of stairs to the first floor where there are three bedrooms, the main one of which is fitted with pine wardrobes.
The family bathroom comes with tiled flooring, inset spotlights and a chrome heated towel rail.
The loft space is partly boarded out which gives useful extra storage space.
Outside is a large lawned front garden, a concrete drive to the side providing ample off street parking, a decked area and flowerbed with feature railway sleepers.To the back is an enclosed flagged patio and a garden shed backing onto the brook.
Wheatley is only minutes away from Halifax centre with its array of shops, restaurants and public houses.
It is also just a short distance to the motorway network. And being situated on the west side of Halifax is perfect for heading out to the Pennines, north Yorkshire and the Lake district.
