5 bed Detached House, Huddersfield

Full Details

ABOUT THE PROPERTY The original property is believed to date back to the late 19th century, as a small stone built detached cottage but has been extensively transformed by our clients and their family before them, having been in the family for over 50 years. With the family no longer at home, our clients are looking to downsize.

There have been 2 extensions to the side of the house in order to create a master bedroom suite and then an annex which extends over the garage. We anticipate that the property would appeal to buyers looking for extensive family accommodation with space for dependant relatives or alternatively the potential to earn a second income from the annex as a holiday let.

The main living accommodation is entered at ground floor level via a porch into the entrance hall. There is a good sized lounge, study, breakfast kitchen with open plan dining area on this floor along with a utility room and access to the keeping cellar.

Upstairs there is a generous master bedroom with en-suite shower room and sliding door to the terrace which enjoys stunning views. There are also two further double bedrooms with a "Jack and Jill" en-suite shower room, 4th bedroom and house bathroom.

The annex features its own living kitchen at ground floor level with a staircase leading up to an impressive first floor sitting room which again enjoys the views and has doors opening to the terrace. There is also a large double bedroom with Juliette balcony and a superb en-suite.

The property is well presented throughout but we anticipate that buyers might look to update and redesign to their own tastes and needs. It has the benefit of double glazed windows throughout (some are wooden and some are uPVC) and 2 independent gas central heating systems.

Externally there is a double width driveway giving access into the large integral garage. Attractively designed and maintained gardens wrap around the front and side of the house providing various seating areas which enjoy a good deal of privacy whilst making the best of the open outlook at the front.
