This is a unique opportunity to purchase a substantial detached residence set within approximately 5.24 acres of grounds.

Full Details

ABOUT TENTERHILL HOUSE We understand that the main property dates back to the early 1800s and was originally a detached house with barn and stables. A section linking the two buildings was added later on and the barn is currently converted into a snooker room and swimming pool. There is also a further detached coach house next door. The property sits within generous grounds amounting to approximately 5.24 acres with attractive gardens, woodland and grazing land.

The property could appeal either to private buyers or developers and offers the potential to create almost 8,000 square feet of accommodation from the existing buildings, subject to the necessary consents being obtained. There are many options available but we believe it could be feasible to create 2 further dwellings from the former barn and another from the coach house.

The main dwelling features an impressive entrance hall with portico frontage, further reception hall, large lounge, dining room with bay window, conservatory, dining kitchen, 2 WCs and a utility room on the ground floor. A lobby area links the main house to the snooker / games room which is partially open to double height and then the indoor swimming pool. A further self contained stable is to be found at the far end of the building.

Upstairs, there is a spacious landing area with 3 large double bedrooms and a bathroom off it. There is a further landing area, 2 further bedrooms and another bathroom above part of the snooker room. A staircase from the main landing gives access to the attic space where there are two large attic rooms - with the potential to be used as further double bedrooms.

Externally the property is accessed via a tree lined driveway from Holmfirth Road which leads to the rear of the building where there is a generous parking area and a pleasant lawned area with mature trees. Other nearby properties enjoy a right of access over the initial part of the driveway - a public footpath also runs along here. The extensive grounds also include delightful gardens, grazing land and mature wooded areas.
