Arguably one of the best locations in the region to build your own dream home. Located on a plot of a third of an acre { approx. } with a historic Grade II listed barn having permission to convert and being connected by a glass atrium to a new build property to create one remarkable residence. River Cottage has a babbling brook gently sweeping safely below the property's garden creating a serene idyllic setting which is surrounded by green belt fields in between Shelley and Shepley.

The land and barn come with the benefit of all searches and surveys carried out and are available for inspection upon request to interested parties. A cash purchaser is preferred who is in a position to proceed for a completion prior to end of March to avoid the stamp duty.

The barn is currently in the process of being made good to a first fix level with roof trusses etc and made watertight, reducing the build/conversion cost considerably. This is expected to be complete by mid February.

The mostly flat plot provides the perfect opportunity to create your own landscape design for the garden which comes with the benefit of plans to allow a stilted alfresco dining terrace to protrude over the babbling brook to create a magical outdoor terrace.

The current barn is listed as it is understood to be the oldest former 'Dye House' still standing in the Huddersfield area and therefore an opportunity to own a piece of local history.

The location is ideal for walking and cycling being on the Kirklees Way bridle path and a delightful short country walk into Shepley.

Ideal for commuters with Leeds only 22 miles away, Sheffield 20 miles, Manchester 31 miles and Shepley train station only 1 mile away whilst Wakefield train station with its 1.5 hour service to central London only 12 miles away.
