  • Bedrooms: 4
A beautifully restored LISTED FOUR BEDROOM DETACHED house with STUNNING views 


The Owlers sits on an elevated site above Hebden Bridge, about a mile from the town centre. Recognised by The Times in 2013 as number one in its list of 'the 30 coolest places to live in Britain', Hebden Bridge is a vibrant, artistic community perfectly positioned midway between Leeds and Manchester, with regular trains to each major centre taking about half an hour and connections to London King's Cross in 3 hours 20 minutes at best.

The surrounding countryside is glorious and the views from the property quite breathtaking. An extensive network of footpaths and bridleways for cycling and horse riding leads down to the town and up to the moors above, where Hebden Bridge Golf Club offers a particularly challenging course.

The Owlers is the last but one house along Burlees Lane. As it passes through the property, the lane has been attractively laid in stone setts, leading down to the beautiful garden beyond.


The Owlers is a fine Grade II Listed house with its origins in the mid 18th century. The restoration and redesign of parts of the property have been carried out with sensitivity and flair, creating a beautiful home with adaptable, spacious accommodation of the highest quality.

The house incorporates modern environmentally friendly technology, with photovoltaic panels for electricity and solar collectors for hot water, comprehensive details of which are available. The house has a dedicated spring water supply and a bio digester drainage system.

The Owlers occupies a site of about 1 acre with an appealing mix of formal gardens, orchard, kitchen garden and established woodland. Throughout the grounds, terraces and seating areas have been created to take best advantage of the stunning views.
