Four bedrooms and a separate annex; The home of Neville Aspin of Pole Moor.
WHILE breathtaking views are a feature of many homes in the local area, it is rare that a property with such a panoramic outlook becomes available.
The Poor House, on Wortshill Road, Pole Moor, is a stunning family home that has been owned by Neville Aspin for the past 12 years.
Neville has undertaken a great deal of renovation work over this time, to bring it up to a very high standard of finish.
It is located "This property dates back to 1850. It was one of the original poor houses, a workhouse, which is where the name comes from. "When we bought it, it essentially dated back to the 1970s, as the chap who had owned it before us had renovated it to that level.
"But we came in and we've done a great deal of decoration and renovation over the last 12 years.
"I'm biased, obviously, but I do think we've brought it up to a fantastic standard.
"The views are incredible. It's a panoramic view all the way round, but from the front you're looking out towards Marsden and at the other side of the house you can see all over Saddleworth Moor."
Set in an impressive plot, thought to amount to approximately one-and-a-half acres of land, this is a substantial family home on the outskirts of Slaithwaite and found on a rural lane with a private gated driveway.
Internally, the living accommodation amounts to more than 3,500 sq feet and includes a well-appointed dining kitchen, four double bedrooms and a large office/games room.
Where possible, Neville has preserved original features throughout the renovation work, including the exposed beams on display throughout.
The property has the advantage of a self-contained annex with kitchenette, lavatory, two further rooms and an L-shaped living area.
This makes The Poor House an ideal proposition for buyers with dependent relatives, while there is also the potential to rent out this space as a holiday letting or utilise it to run a business.
Additional benefits include an integral single garage and attached double garage.
There is an abundance of parking available and a garden room that helps to further appreciate the stunning views.
It is with a heavy heart that Neville is leaving the property and it would be safe to assume he would be looking for something a little smaller, especially now that his three sons have grown up and left home.
"We've bought a house near Bridlington that we're renovating at the moment,'' he said.
"To get it up to the standard we want, I've been working on that a few days per week.
"To be honest with you, it's actually a bigger property, I just really like space!
"And I really enjoy doing the work, so it's a project as well."
The Poor House is being marketed by Yorkshire's Finest.
