Property of the Week - Elder Lea House, Clough Lane

Offered to the open market for the first time since 1985 is this spectacular, Victorian built detached property, situated in a private location just off Clough Lane.

The property was built in 1885 for the Lord Mayor of Brighouse. Retaining its original features, the property is set within beautiful landscaped gardens and also benefits from a coach house which offers further detached accommodation, ideal for elderly or teenage family members alike.

Elder Lea House briefly comprises of: a porch, a reception hall, a downstairs cloakroom, a living room, a dining room, a second sitting room, a kitchen, several cellar rooms, four double bedrooms and four en-suite bathrooms.

The coach house briefly comprises of: several ground floor rooms and a self-contained studio apartment.

Both properties are superbly maintained throughout and offer luxurious accommodation, benefitting from central heating, double glazing (as a minimum) and easy access to local amenities, the M62 network and excellent schools.

The property also possesses scope for extension, as planning permission has been received for at least one detached property within the grounds, and with space to provide further room for more.

The present owners use three bedrooms for guest accommodation, having been awarded five stars and a Gold Award, giving potential owners the opportunity to continue or use the bedrooms for family members.

Either way, internal viewing is absolutely essential to appreciate this impressive accommodation.

To the exterior, there is a fully restored 1920s Harrods summer house.

l Elder Lea House is offered for sale by Peter David Properties, priced £650,000.
