ABOUT COPLEY HOUSE This delightful detached property is filled with great charm and character, it is believed to date back to the early 19th century and was originally a block of 4 cottages. The property was subsequently remodelled as a single residence with the addition of the bay to the front, then later extensions were added to the side and rear. It is of traditional stone built construction under a stone slate roof.

Our client purchased the property circa 1988 and carried out a number of works at that time including redesigning the upstairs layout and installing bathrooms whilst retaining many original features.

The property is entered through a door to the front, which leads through into the hall giving access to the 3 reception rooms and kitchen. It then opens into a further rear hallway with glazed roof. This in turn leads to a range of further rooms including a study, utility, downstairs wc and pantry.

There are 3 reception rooms on the ground floor: the lounge and sitting room both enjoy views to the front over the adjoining field, the lounge itself features a superb bay window. The dining room features a superb period panelling to the walls and leaded glazed windows to the garden. The dining kitchen is of an excellent size and features an Aga range cooker. A door gives access to the stairs to 2 vaulted cellar rooms.

The first floor landing features an arched window to the side of the building. There are 4 double bedrooms with an en-suite to the principal bedroom and a house bathroom that can also be accessed from bedroom 2. Two further bedrooms can be found within the attic space featuring exposed roof trusses.

Externally the property is accessed via a driveway through impressive gateposts from Penistone Road. There driveway extends round the front and rear of the building, providing generous parking and access to the double garage.

The generous landscaped gardens wrap around the driveway and feature lawns, borders and mature trees, shrubs and bushes. They extend to the side of the house where there is a delightfully manicured garden again featuring lawn, borders and trees.
