Full Details

About 1 Sike Close The property was built in 2000 by Lanson Developments, a renowned local contractor. It is of traditional stone built construction under a stone slate roof.

Our clients purchased the property in 2008 and carried out a major scheme of renovation in 2013 under plans drawn up by Space Architecture. These works included reordering the ground floor to create an open contemporary living space, upgrading the kitchen and porch area, introducing a new luxury bathroom and second en suite, as well as an upstairs lounge to take advantage of the delightful views towards Pike Lowe and Anchor Hill.

Downstairs the property features a glazed entrance porch, reception area, high-specification kitchen (incorporating units by Schller, appliances by Siemens and finished with Silestone work surfaces), living space, study / dining room and garden room. Upstairs there is a superb master bedroom with en-suite, two further double bedrooms (one with en-suite), a designer bathroom and a further living area which could easily be converted into a fourth bedroom. Signature porcelain tiling runs throughout the accommodation giving an elegant and coordinated appearance.

The gas boiler and radiators have been replaced, along with all the doors, light-fittings and window furniture. The property benefits from wooden double-glazed units throughout and is fitted with an intruder alarm system.

Externally there is a stone set driveway with drystone wall surround and remote-controlled gates to the front leading to the integral double garage. To the rear there is a beautifully landscaped garden with extensive lawn and patio areas.

The property occupies a pleasant semi-rural setting within the village of Totties which lies between New Mill and Scholes. It forms part of a small hamlet of properties built from reclaimed stone and in keeping with the area, incorporating a large green space which is maintained by the local authority.
