This beautifully presented Grade II listed former vicarage, offers spacious accommodation over three floors with a total of six bedrooms, four reception rooms and double garage with home office above. The house sits within 0.7 acres of grounds with a further 1.5 acres of grazing land to the rear. Cragg Vale benefits from a host of excellent local amenities and the cities of both Manchester and Leeds are easily accessible by road and rail.

Occupying an elevated position with beautiful views of the tree lined valley that forms Cragg Vale, stands the Old Vicarage. Built in 1901 by Helen Strickland in memory of her father, a local mill owner, the property offers warm and welcoming accommodation at the edge of the village. Stepping into the property from the rear cobbled courtyard, the entrance hall, with its grand staircase and ornate decorative window, deep skirting boards and moulded plasterwork, sets the scene of what is to come. The drawing room is light and spacious, with an open fireplace along with large mullion windows and French doors opening onto the terrace and offers you the first glimpse of the view. From the drawing room, you enter the dining room, again bathed in light courtesy of its dual aspect and large mullion windows. Furthermore, there is a library, breakfast room, kitchen, utility and WC that make up the remainder of the ground floor accommodation.

Taking the stairs to the first floor and here you will find the majority of the bedrooms, five in all, with two bathrooms and additional WC. The three principal bedrooms all benefit from views of the valley with the master bedroom also benefiting from a second window looking west to the moors. Taking the stairs to the second floor and here you will find a guest suite or ideal accommodation for teenagers seeking some independence, providing a double bedroom along with a sitting room and shower room. The Old Vicarage is also not short of storage, with two store rooms on the second floor and two further store rooms and a wine cellar below ground.

The Old Vicarage enjoys fully enclosed gardens extending to approximately 0.7 acres. The property is approached from Rudd Lane and upon entering the wrought iron gates you are immediately greeted by a driveway and parking area which is capable of accommodating a number of vehicles comfortably, in addition to a double garage accessed via the cobbled courtyard at the rear of the property. With the property sitting above most of its grounds, it benefits from beautifully presented and landscaped gardens. A substantial sweeping lawn, mature trees, well-established borders and stocked flower beds offer an easily manageable space with plenty of potential for those particularly keen on gardening. The paved terrace, which extends for the entire width of the south elevation and enjoys the fantastic views, provides a wonderful space for entertaining or enjoying a meal outdoors, from which a pair of stone staircases lead down onto the front lawn. There is also a small sheltered kitchen garden and a second secluded lawned garden. In addition to the formal gardens the property boasts a field at the rear offering approximately 1.5 acres of grazing land.

Above the garage is an additional room currently used as a home office. The office boasts a kitchenette and separate WC, along with gas central heating, courtesy of its own combi boiler. This space could easily be re-imagined as a gym, cinema room or given relevant planning permissions form additional accommodation.

The area around Cragg Vale offers no shortage of leisure activities, the village boasts two pubs, The Hinchliffe and The Robin Hood, a host of woodland and countryside footpaths, a tennis club and Craggies Farm Shop. The popular town of Hebden Bridge is nearby, with a wide range of restaurants, cafes, bars and independent shops, along with a cinema, theatre and live music venue.
