Location & Description

45 Vale Fold Cottages enjoys a peaceful setting off a private road between the popular villages of Haworth and Oakworth. The renowned village of Haworth with its historical links to the Bronte Family offers a good range of amenities including a highly regarded primary school, shops, a number of pubs and places to eat and good links to public transport services and road networks. Haworth is also on the Worth Valley Steam Railway Line. For a more comprehensive range of amenities including regular direct train services to Skipton, Bradford and Leeds, the larger vibrant towns of Keighley and Bingley are a short distance to the north and north east respectively.

This attractive middle cottage style property is approached via the private drive in front of the integral garage and accessed through the front door into a spacious entrance hall with staircase leading up to the first floor. To the left is a well proportioned, beautifully presented living room with window seat under a bow window looking onto the front garden.

Beyond the living room is a pleasant dining room with a large window looking onto the stone flagged seating area and woodland beyond. The well appointed kitchen has a comprehensive range of cream coloured base and wall units with laminate work surfaces, inset

sink with drainer and tiled splash back. There is a four ring gas hob with electric oven and extractor hood above, plumbing for both washing machine and dishwasher, external door and recessed spot lights.

Iroko surface and wall mounted mixer tap. There is a large walk-in shower. Bedroom 2 incorporates an excellent cabin bed with useful storage beneath and a window overlooking the rear patio and woodland beyond. Bedroom 3 is L shaped and currently used as a family room/study.
