5 bed Detached House, Holmfirth

This imposing detached house occupies a convenient and sought after location close to the village centre of Honley. Whilst being fairly anonymous from the roadside it has surprisingly large plot with gardens extending to the rear. The spacious accommodation comprises entrance lobby, hall, dining kitchen, lounge, 2 further reception rooms, landing, 4 first floor bedrooms, house bathroom, en-suite bathroom, dressing room and further large attic room with exposed trusses and its own shower room. There are also extensive cellars beneath the property. Whilst the property has been the subject of some renovation works we expect that purchasers would need to carry out further maintenance and modernisation to restore the house it its former status. Externally there is a good sized lawned garden to the side and rear of the house. This extends further to a lower level garden beyond. For sale with vacant possession and no vendor chain.

OUTSIDE There is a small open yard area to the side of the house providing access to the side entrance gate. Once through the gate the gardens open up to feature a large lawned area across the rear of the house which returns up the other side of the building. This is enclosed by a high stone wall to Southgate. Steps lead down from the main garden to a lower level garden area which is again lawned with mature trees.

We would anticipate that buyers would look to create an access into the side garden area to provide an off-road parking area / driveway. We must stress that planning and highways consent would be required to do this.


VIEWING Strictly by appointment with Wm Sykes & Son.

Turn left over the bridge and continue up into the village, turn left onto Southgate just before the car park and follow this road along. The property will be found on the left hand side.
