Description

COMMENTS
Dating back to 1804, Thorpe House was a former cotton mill owner's mansion. It stands in mature established grounds, set back off the A58, between Triangle and Ripponden, in the heart of this most sought after of residential locations.

This is a truly magnificent Grade II listed house, boasting a wealth of period features and providing an extensive array of accommodation laid out over two floors. The grounds which total some 5 acres, offer a high degree of privacy with extensive lawned areas, mature trees, Rhododendrons and a generous sized lake. This is a perfect residential location, a short distance from the ever popular village of Ripponden, whilst there is also easy access to the M62 putting Leeds, Manchester, etc., within easy reach.

The property has been in the same ownership some 60 years and in recent years has been successfully run as a bed and breakfast. However, subject to the relevant planning permission it would suit a variety of uses from a private residence to small hotel, wedding venue, nursing home, head office, etc.
