Everybody likes to come home to a hug. Welcome to Number Seven, Old Green, a home steeped in history, with hidden depths and warmth in abundance. A home that embraces you each time you return.
Turning off Brandlesholme Road, travel along the lane leading to Sellers Farm and sense the shift in frequency. Parking is available to the rear, on North Avenue, with a pebbled path leading to the rear gate.
Neatly gated and paved to the front, make your way to the front door, opening into a porch, handy for coats and shoes. Beyond, a home whose spacious rooms bely its modest exterior awaits…
Welcome home. Sense your cares dissipate in the ambient surrounds of the spacious living room, as the coal-effect gas fire imbues its warmth from within the handsome cast iron and marble surround. Original beams overhead have been painted a contemporary white and serve as comforting reminders of the home’s antiquity (Number Seven dates back to the 1700s when it was believed to have once been part of a larger farm).
 “We love the comfort of sitting in front of the lovely fireplace with the fire glowing, especially on cold winter nights.”
With ample space for sofas, bookshelves and even a small piano, the living room at Number Seven combines character and cosiness, with room for all your favourite furnishings.
Step through to the contemporary feel family room to the rear. White and black tiling underfoot harmonises with crisp white walls. To the far side, a wall of fitted cupboards and shelving provides plentiful storage.
“I fell in love instantly with the house the minute I looked out the kitchen window and saw the back garden.”
Private and not overlooked, a recent 2016 extension sees the kitchen open out to the rear of the family room, creating a free-flowing and sociable dining-living-cooking space.
Fitted with brand new, top quality appliances, light flows down through the kitchen courtesy of a large Velux window. Dine at the breakfast bar, relax in front of the television in a comfortable armchair, or whip up a feast for the family.
Allow the garden views to seduce you through the leaded light of the rear door. Step out onto the patio and soak up the sun for a spot of alfresco dining in the summer months.
Sneak a peek at the downstairs, guest WC, before taking the attractive spindled staircase up to the first floor.
Nestled to the rear of the house is a cosy double bedroom, the original, gnarly and characterful beams filling the room with charm. Stash your clothes in the built-in stylish wardrobes. A low-set window beneath the sloping roof invites plenty of light in and offers views over the back garden.
Serving both bedrooms is the sizeable family bathroom, replete with separate bath, walk-in shower cubicle, WC and wash basin. Tiled and contemporary, where better to refresh and relax?
Soak up the views from the low-set window in the front bedroom, looking over the farm and toward the distant houses; a reminder of your rural retreat. Built-in furniture provides a plethora of storage for clothing and more, with room for a desk and your double bed.
Garden escape
Outside, discover a peaceful paradise in Number Seven, Old Green’s expansive garden. Spend summer days sitting out on the private, sheltered patio up the first level of steps, sipping on a cool refreshing drink and soaking up the sun. No need to return indoors for dinner; fire up the barbecue for a fantastic spread of food.
A variety of acers provides a beautiful range of colour, bursting into leaf in spring and erupting into flaming oranges and reds in autumn.
Low maintenance and easy to enjoy, there is no lawn to mow, with colour provided by potted plants and a beautiful pond filled with fish. In summertime, relax to the fountain’s soundtrack in this serene haven.
“The large greenhouse has been instrumental in our enjoyment of the property.”
Two large outbuildings, installed by the current owners serve as a workshop and craft room but can easily be repurposed to suit any interests: why not transform one into your home office, playroom, gym or summer house bar?
Out and About
Step out of the front door and into a walker’s paradise. With walks in all directions, take your time to discover them all.
To the south, explore ‘The Lines’, as the old former railway-line walk is locally known, officially titled the Kirklees Trail. Dog walkers can enjoy letting their four-legged friends sniff out the series of paths through the woods and lodges of Greenmount.
Skirt the edge of Greenmount Golf Club to the west, and take the footpaths across the fields into Hawkshaw. Redisher Woods await to the north, leading up through moorland paths to Peel Tower and Holcombe Hill. Why not explore to the east, where the village of Summerseat lies only a mile away. Boasting riverside walks along the Irwell and Nutall Park, there is access beyond into Ramsbottom, brimming with shops, cafes and restaurants. Pick up the finest steaks for your romantic dinner from locally sourced produce at Greenmount Butchers. Or for something different, dine out at Carmelo’s Italian restaurant in Tottington.
