A J Turner are excited to present to the market Belvedere – a substantial Edwardian four bedroomed family home, set in a sought after convenient location just ten minutes walk into the centre of Hebden Bridge, where it is rare for properties of this standard to reach the open market. This lovely house was built for the English Velvet and Cord Dyeing Company and designed by a firm of Manchester-based architects in a distinctive Arts and Craft style. The house has been sympathetically extended by the current owners and offers well-proportioned rooms giving plenty of living space. The accommodation briefly comprises: entrance hallway, large breakfast kitchen, two large reception rooms, downstairs shower room, four good sized bedrooms, house bathroom and separate WC. Externally the property enjoys impressive private gardens to three sides and useful garage.
All the facilities of Hebden Bridge including the local infant and junior schools are a short walk away along the Rochdale canal towpath. Hebden Royd C of E school is five minutes walk. Despite its proximity to the town centre and main road the house sits in a peaceful wooded location, is surrounded by garden on three sides and the back garden merges into Rawtenstall Woods with its wildlife including deer.
