Enjoying a semi-rural setting on the edge of this sought after village, the property is located in a hamlet of other high quality homes. Holt Laithe Cottage has been recently upgraded and substantially extended from its original design, which has created a spacious and well-appointed five bedroom, four bathroom family home positioned on the edge of Slaithwaite and mid-way between Holmfirth and Marsden. Internally, the accommodation comprises entrance lobby, living/dining kitchen with bi-fold doors, utility, living room, sun lounge/orangery, inner hallway, three bedrooms (the Master with a separate dressing room and en suite) and family bathroom to the ground floor. To the first floor is a galleried landing and two double bedrooms both with en suite facilities. The property enjoys a gas central heating system, is predominantly uPVC double glazed and has an alarm and CCTV system. Externally, an electric gate gives access onto the driveway with parking for several vehicles and access to a stone built, detached garage with automatic door. A patio area adjoins the sun/garden room, along with lawned gardens and the lane to the side, with adjoining woodland bounded by the stream. Of particular note is the internal oak joinery including doors, exposed stonework, high ceilings and beams. Only by internal inspection can the position, presentation and high specification be truly appreciated.
