Glen View is a most deceptive Victorian terrace offering extensive accommodation
laid out over four floors and displays many period features including deep skirting,
high ceilings, moulded covings, and period style fireplace. The property also has gas
fired central heating, and double glazing. There is a certain amount of flexibility with
regard to the lower ground floor accommodation which includes a shower room, and
therefore has potential for a granny/teenage flat.
There is a garden to the front and a tarmac area to the rear which can be used as an
outside sitting area or for parking.
Meltham itself sits on the fringe of the Pennine hills and is therefore an ideal location
for those who enjoy walking and other outdoor pursuits. The village offers good
amenities including a range of village shops and a Morrisons supermarket. This is
also an ideal base for commuting to any of the surrounding major conurbations such
as Leeds, Manchester, Wakefield and Sheffield with good access to the M1 and M62 motorways.

matching fan light over opens into the entrance hallway.

decorative door architraves, deep skirting boards
