ABOUT QUARRY CROSS HOUSE This outstanding detached property is believed to date back to the 1850's being 3 cottages with an underdwelling on the lower floor. We understand that it was converted into single dwelling shortly before our clients purchased the house in 2005.
Since buying the house our clients have carried out extensive works to improve it to its current high standard and added a superb garden room at the rear which enjoys far reaching views. The property is of traditional stone built construction under a stone slate roof and features many original features including stone fireplaces and exposed beams.
It has an entrance hall to the front providing access into the large lounge which in turn has glazed double doors into the garden room. There is also high quality breakfast kitchen, dining room with stone floor, utility room and downstairs wc on the ground floor.
At first floor level there is a spacious study / landing area, 3 double bedrooms, house bathroom, en-suite and walk in wardrobe to the master bedroom. The lower ground floor is accessed from inside the property but could alternatively be used as a self-contained annex for visitors, a dependant relative or possibly even rented out for a supplementary income and can be accessed externally. It features a living room with kitchenette, double bedroom and en-suite shower room. There are also 2 cellar rooms providing useful storage.
The property is presented to a high standard throughout and features a gas central heating system, hardwood double glazed windows and quality modern fittings alongside the more traditional features.
Externally there is a small seating area to the front of the house from which the owners can enjoy watching the sun set. A double garage is attached to the side of the house and there is a large garden store beneath it - this itself could offer further potential to create a workshop or studio. There are generous gardens at the rear which feature an extensive lawn, well planted borders and a water feature.
The property enjoys a pleasant rural setting with excellent views from most of the rooms. It is conveniently located for the village amenities to be found in the villages of Kirkburton and Highburton, whilst being accessible for commuters who require access to the road networks.
