Property of the week: Stunning listed home

editorial image

One of the first requirements people look for when buying a new home is getting as much space as they can for their money.

At Thornhill House, Towngate, Hipperholme they would get exactly that.

A wonderful, bold, south facing Grade II listed Georgian detached property (dating back to 1802) that has it in spadefuls.

There are two rooms in the basement; a lounge, fabulous kitchen (more of that later), dining room, cloaks, rear vestibule and access to an integral garage.

Onto the first floor there’s a further lounge and kitchen, an additional claokroom and two double bedrooms. Clearly there is scope for development.

And up on the top floor a family bathroom, three more double beds including the master which is en-suite.

Continuing the theme outside is a large garden and ample off road parking .

Food lovers and budding chefs will be bowled over by the kitchen. A mix of black granite and French oak gives you plenty of workspace. Within the old chimney breast is a space that houses a belling range cooker and a recycled railway sleeper acts as a lintel. A Belfast sink sits between two large south facing windows that overlook the garden.

Hipperholme is one of Calderdale’s most desirable areas, well served by good schools and a range of shops, restaurants and pubs with a pedigree.

The village is within easy reach of Huddersfield, Halifax and Bradford and two minutes from the motorway linking Leeds and Manchester. If this house falls within your price range it is worth a serious look.
