Shaw Lane, Hinchliffe Mill , Holmfirth£899,950
6 bed Detached House, Holmfirth
This much admired detached residence enjoys a slightly elevated position with impressive views to the front, set in just under an acre of beautiful grounds. It offers extensive accommodation with 5 bedrooms, 3 reception rooms and a number of other ancillary rooms. The property has been well maintained and retains many period features but we anticipate that buyers will look to carry out further modernisation works to meet their own tastes and needs. Having been in the ownership of our clients family for over 50 years this is a rare opportunity to purchase one of the Holme Valleys most impressive residences.
Full DetailsABOUT STUBBIN This handsome detached property has the appearance of two semi-detached double fronted properties. It is our understanding that the property was built in two separate sections.
We are informed that a residence has occupied this site since the 1600's but we understand that the house we see today is more in keeping with the early 1800's when it was the residence of the Shaw family - an important local land owner. Our client's family purchased the property in 1966 and it has remained a much loved family home.
The property is entered through an impressive entrance hall and features a lounge with superb bay window and dining room. The hall leads through to the dining kitchen with a secondary entrance hall also providing access to another reception room. The ground floor also features a downstairs wc, shower room and traditional wash kitchen.
Upstairs there are two separate landing areas, 4 large double bedrooms, single bedroom, boxroom and 2 bathrooms.
The property has recently had its gas central heating system updated extensively but we do anticipate that buyers will look to carry out further modernisation.
