A 500-year-old house with its own sauna is up for grabs

Character property could be one of the oldest in Kirklees

This character filled cottage could be one of the oldest homes in Kirklees.

The Meltham town centre property is believed to have been built in the 15th century, making it more than 500 years old.

Nestled in the heart of the Holme Valley village, the historic building is packed with architectural features including exposed wood beams, mullioned windows, an open stone fire place and the Latin words ‘Porta Dorma Aurea’ (door of the golden house) etched in the stone above the front door.
