In recent years the centre of New Mill has changed considerably.

Gone is the old Moorbrook Mill, which employed local people for years, and in its place a new development of modern properties named Moorbrook Mill Drive to keep the historical mill connection.

This week’s Our House is a three-storey semi-detached property on this modern development in the heart of New Mill.

For a modern house it is surprisingly spacious, with three double bedrooms and plenty of storage on all three levels.

Home owner, Lisa Stringer, bought the property when it was first built in 2012 but now that her son and daughter have flown the nest, she feels it is time for her to downsize.

Lisa said: “I want to stay in the same area but I really don’t need all this space. When I first came to view the property, I was really surprised at the size of it. The house is in a lovely setting, close to the centre of New Mill but really quiet and private. New Mill Dike runs alongside the development so it’s really pretty.

“There is plenty of room for visitor parking and the houses are close to open countryside, ideal for anyone who likes walking or who has dogs to exercise.’’

At the front of the property is a lawned area and driveway leading to an integral single garage/utility area and providing off-road parking.

Walk into the property on the ground-floor and you’ll find a good sized entrance hall with access to the garage/utility room. On this floor there is also a downstairs cloakroom, storage under the stairs and a large kitchen/diner, which looks out over the rear garden. The large kitchen is well equipped with base and eye-level units, integrated appliances and a double built-in oven.

French doors lead out into the rear garden.

Stairs lead up to the second-floor which is home to a spacious lounge with French doors out to a balcony: ideal for sitting out on a summer evening with a glass of wine.

Lisa said: “The back garden gets the sun all day but it’s lovely to sit on the balcony in the evening sunshine.’’

Also on the second-floor is a large double bedroom and the house bathroom with both bath and shower.

Up again and you reach the third-floor which has two double bedrooms with fitted wardrobes, including the master bedroom with an en-suite with double shower.

Outside, the rear garden is very private with a lawned area, wooden decked patio area and additional gravelled area.

Lisa said: “The garden is easy to maintain and really quiet and private.’’

Because of it’s young age, this house has still several years outstanding on the NHBC 10-year building warranty and also part of a guarantee from builders David Wilson Homes.

This property is a lovely spacious house, ideal for a family or couple who want to be near the amenities of New Mill and Holmfirth, yet on the doorstep for rural walks.
