Property overview

Description

Castle House, Todmorden is an immaculately presented and substantial detached property set in a private estate of 2.2 acres of gardens and grounds. Its elevated location enjoys breath-taking, panoramic views over surrounding countryside.

In front of the historic Dobroyd Castle, the property is a 12-minute walk to the town centre and train station, which offers easy access to Manchester and surrounding towns, including Halifax, Huddersfield and Leeds.

The house boasts a light and spacious interior with views from every room and comprises entrance vestibule, hallway with wc/cloaks, study, kitchen with Bosch appliances, Franke double sink and granite worktops, large sitting room, spacious dining room and fitted utility.

Upstairs there are six bedrooms (5 doubles, including master with en-suite shower) and two further bathrooms with baths and electrostatic showers. Accessed by private road and driveway, there is a large parking area, with both a detached and attached garage. There are lawned gardens to the front, side and rear with borders of mature trees and shrubs, paved patio areas, raised beds and an adjoining wild flower meadow.

The property benefits from all mains services, alarm, recently replaced double glazing, a Worcester Greenstar condensing gas boiler, reliable mobile phone reception and good internet access.

Owners' view

We came here from London. We looked at over 40 houses between Harrogate, Skipton and Holmfirth before deciding on this one. It wasn't hard. Castle House stood out against our location brief for country views, not too near other houses, close to shops and town, and with good travel links. The station has free parking and is excellent for rail access to local centres. London is 3½ hours.

The house is a superb family home, very economical to run and easy to maintain. The main rooms flow the length of the house and face south over the garden and meadow to the fells beyond. The location is special: rural, peaceful but not isolated. Birds love it and deer flit across the meadow about once a week. You wouldn't know the town was so near.

Todmorden is friendly, not as trendy as nearby Hebden Bridge but with an industrial heritage evidenced in the canal and local buildings. There's everything you need for day to day. Shops, pubs and local restaurants are plentiful. There's a market most days of the week, an award-winning indoor market, two good supermarkets (Morrison's and Lidl) and other convenience stores. Tod has great NHS facilities, a leisure centre, a theatre and Incredible Edible, a group which grows fruit and vegetables around the town for anyone to pick. Walking locally is superb, whether by yourself or with a local group. You can go the length of the canal or up along the tops. Favourite walks include Todmorden beach – a patch of sand on one of the reservoirs that's popular in summer. You can see Stoodley Pike from the house, which is on the Pennine way. The Calder way runs up to the right of the house, part of our daily walk with the dog. There's also National Trust heritage site Hardcastle Crags at Hebden Bridge. Really, we're spoiled for choice.

We especially love the views, whether out walking or from every main room in the house. From the master bedroom, you can lie in bed and look out across to the other side of the valley, knowing we're not overlooked and no-one can see us! The lounge is especially relaxing and in the evening, the fell glows with the setting sun. "We're moving South to be nearer our children but we shall greatly miss Castle House. It's a wonderful place to live"
