If you are in the market for a truly unique and romantic family home then this beautiful house is where you belong. 

Ash Cottage is an elegant period house, standing in approximately 1.7 acres, within the much sought after hamlet of Wilshaw, above Holmfirth.

Sit a while in the gardens and enjoy the sound of your children playing or evening bird song, and admire all that is around you. With a view of a beautiful church spire, the gardens are both extensive and private.  Perfect for little ones to roam in safety, and ideal for those with green fingers.  There are established lawns with beautiful mature trees, as well as rustic garden areas that offer further potential.

There is ample parking, various outbuildings, and small woodland copse's too.  Discerning buyers with an additional budget may wish to explore the possibility of extending, or in future years potentially developing the property further, subject to planning permission, but we think it is perfect, just the way it is.

Constructed circa 1840 by the Hirst family believed by our clients to have been designed by an Italian architect,he house displays character and charm, and enjoys high ceilings, arched window heads and most of the rooms are double aspect allowing for lots of natural light.  The family then went on to build the nearby church at the bottom of the garden in honour of their daughter Mary, and later the Almshouses.  Ash cottage is situated in its own private parkland garden on the edge of the Peak District and Pennines.

Period fireplaces, deep skirting boards and a lovely hallway add to the stature of the property.

There are four bedrooms in total, three being double bedrooms, and one single.  In addition, there is a shower room and separate bathroom.

The ground floor accommodation is suited to daily life, with a variety of reception rooms allowing for various activities, complemented by the addition of a beautiful sun lounge/garden room looking over the rear patio and beyond.

The kitchen has been opened up and has an adjacent morning room, perfect for breakfasting or just daily family interaction.  There is a formal dining room and separate drawing room also.  One can imagine sitting back and relaxing in front of an open fire, especially on cold winter evenings or Christmas time.  Wine and storage cellars provide additional useful space.

Approaching Ash Cottage from the driveway one cannot fail to appreciate the beauty of this lovely family home and the setting that it enjoys.  It has neighbours, but is private, it is in the countryside, but is so easy to access.

Business travellers will appreciate the road links to Manchester, and local buyers will appreciate the extensive amenities on offer across the Holme Valley.  There are several local villages with a variety of amenities, independent businesses, places to eat out and socialise, a local golf course within walking distance, public services, bus services, supermarkets and a variety of other activities, including sports and social clubs too.  A fabulous location for those who enjoy the outdoors, with cycling, riding and local countryside and scenery all on the doorstep.

Buying Ash Cottage is a lifestyle decision, one we think that a discerning buyer will never regret.

Viewings are strictly by appointment with James White via our Honley Office.  The essentials:  The property is Freehold.  Mains services are available. Council Tax Band G.  The house is in a conservation area with tree protection orders.  There is restricted vehicular access to the Alms Houses.
