WHEN it comes to hunting for a house steeped in history with some stunning rural views, then our property of the week is well worth a look.

This magnificent and unique Grade II-listed former Sunday school, on Bacup Road in Todmorden, dates back to 1829.

It offers a versatile three/four bedroomed property with exceptionally large gardens, summerhouse and ample off-road parking.

The property is on the market with estate agent Yopa for £475,000 and has allotment gardens and a split-level conversion with a host of stunning features.

On the ground floor level is an entrance hall and side porch, three generously sized double bedrooms, a family bathroom, a characterful bespoke dining kitchen and a large reception hall.

What is great about this property is the very spacious mezzanine level which is currently used as a second sitting room/fourth bedroom with a further storeroom and eaves storage.

It is an ideal purchase for someone seeking a stunning semi-rural retreat with beautiful extensive gardens yet offering convenient easy access to a very popular and bustling town centre.

It has lots of charm and character with its seven bays of sash windows and on the doorway it says: ‘This school was built by public subscription, A.D.1829, for children of all religious denominations.’

The reception hall has a large double height vaulted room with wooden flooring and exposed beams which go throughout this charming property.

You feel like you have stepped back in time thanks to the feature cast iron fireplace and multi-fuel stove.

The bathroom is a fitted four-piece suite with panelled bath, walk-in shower enclosure, toilet and sink.

Outside, there are the most delightful gardens to the rear which are abundantly stocked with a variety of plants and shrubs.

Also there are flagged patio areas and a well maintained level lawn which is bordered by a stream with the moors beyond.

A great addition for the family is the wooden summer house.

Adjacent to the gardens is an additional large market garden plot, as well as raised fruit vegetable plots with a polytunnel for growing crops.
