Greenfield Road, Holmfirth£765,000
5 bed Detached House, Holmfirth
A rare opportunity to purchase one of just 2 high spec contemporary homes enjoying a magnificent rural setting on the outskirts of Holmfirth. Great emphasis has been placed upon maximising natural light and providing a clean modern design with excellent energy efficiency credentials. Being offered for sale off plan, buyers will be encouraged to customize the final finish to their own tastes and needs.
Full DetailsABOUT THE PROPERTY Our client has obtained planning permission to build 2 contemporary dwellings in a rural setting which remains convenient for access to Holmfirth and for commuting over the Pennines. With one of the plots already reserved for the developers own occupation, this is the only property to be offered to the open market at this time.
The property has been designed to be low key and un-intrusive from the front but to maximise the views over the gardens and beyond at the rear. It is entered at upper floor level with an entrance vestibule providing access into an open hallway. Beyond this there is an impressive open plan living space which incorporates living, kitchen and dining areas with a high angled ceiling and picture windows enjoying the views. There is also a further snug / lounge, utility room, cloakroom / wc and integral garage on this level.
Downstairs there is a broad central hallway which provides access to the bedroom accommodation. This provides a particularly impressive master bedroom suite with en-suite, walk in wardrobe and doors into the rear garden. There are a further 4 double bedrooms (1 having its own en-suite bathroom), office and a house bathroom. This floor does however offer the potential for buyers to reconfigure and redesign if required, for example, to incorporate a downstairs living room instead of the master bedroom, still keeping 4 double bedrooms.
The property will be constructed of insulated blockwork with a steel frame, the outer envelope being finished with dry stone walling and cedar cladding under a pitched slate roof. There will be an air source heating system with underfloor heating throughout the upper floor and radiators on the lower level. Our client aims to reduce heat loss by including highly specification insulation and an air tight finish.
It will be completed to an extremely high standard throughout with high performance windows and doors, high quality kitchen and a contemporary wood burning stove. Thoughtful architectural details will be included in the form of shadow gaps between the walls and floors, a large ridge light to the high angled ceiling and bespoke staircase.
Externally there will be landscaped garden areas to all 4 sides, a generous driveway with remote control gates with access to the integral garage via a remote controlled door and electric car charging point.
The property enjoys an enviable rural setting adjoining woodland and with wildlife and birds frequent visitors to the site. Close to the Peak District National Park boundary ideal for countryside walks.
It remains extremely convenient for access over to Saddleworth, Greater Manchester and the many amenities of Holmfirth can be found approximately 2 miles away.
