3 bed Detached Cottage, Holmfirth

This beautiful detached cottage occupies a good sized mature plot (0.38 acre approx) in a much sought after location which enjoys far reaching rural views. We understand that the cottage was formerly 2 houses which are now combined into a single dwelling. There is also an attached barn incorporating a workshop and garage. The property offers excellent potential to update and enlarge the existing accommodation subject to the necessary consents being obtained.

Full Details

ABOUT DERWENT HOUSE Believed to date back originally to the 1780s, this detached cottage property is understood to have originally been 2 cottages which were combined many years ago. The property was last sold over 50 years ago by Wm Sykes & Son and has provided a much loved family home for our clients.

The property retains many traditional features including exposed beams, stone fireplaces and sash windows. We do anticipate however that buyers will look to carry out a scheme of modernisation and updating of fixtures and fittings. There is also excellent potential for the buyer to redesign and extend the property or possibly convert the adjoining building - this would naturally be subject to planning permission being obtained.

It currently comprises the following accommodation: on the ground floor there is an entrance hall, 2 reception rooms, dining kitchen and downstairs WC; upstairs there is a landing, 3 double bedrooms and a bathroom.

Externally there is a sweeping driveway to the lower side of the plot leading up to the side parking area where the attached barn is situated. This is divided into a garage / workshop and 2 store rooms. The extensive gardens are located to the front and rear of the house and feature generous lawned areas, fruit and vegetable plots, mature trees, shrubs and bushes.

Whilst the property enjoys a pleasant semi-rural setting it is located a short distance away from the village railway station and secondary school.
