This impressive detached property occupies a pleasant tucked away setting off Bill Lane and sits within a plot of approximately quarter of an acre. It has been tastefully renovated and extended to the rear by the present owners, offering spacious contemporary living which must be seen to be appreciated.
This random stone fronted property is believed to have been built in the 1970s, its interior however is quite unexpected having been the subject of comprehensive modernisation by our clients including a large single storey extension which was added circa 2020. Prior to this the property had also been extended over the garage by a previous owner. Its overall living accommodation extends to approximately 2300 sqft excluding the garage.
The property is accessed via a short driveway off Bill Lane which is shared with 1 other similar dwelling. The plot extends to just over quarter of an acre with generous parking provision at the front and a large landscaped garden at the rear. The combination of these assets makes the property a rare find indeed.
Internally the property has undergone extensive refurbishment by our clients, particularly downstairs which now enjoys a high quality contemporary feel. It is entered via the central entrance hall which features a staircase to the first floor, storage cupboard and downstairs wc off it. Glazed double doors open into the dining kitchen which extends to approximately 22’ and is fitted with an excellent range of modern shaker style units and a long island unit with quartz worksurface and adjoining wooden block breakfast bar. A door from the kitchen leads to the utility room where there is also a personal access door to the garage.
The kitchen is open plan to the stunning living / dining room extension which stretches right across the rear of the building having 2 sets of bifolding doors to the rear garden, a high angled ceiling with velux rooflights and underfloor heating beneath the herringbone flooring. A sliding door also allows this space to be opened up into the original lounge which is now partially split into a cosy snug and office area with a wooden slatted divider. The ground floor is completed by a further room, used by our clients as a gym but offering the scope for many other purposes within the extension.
Upstairs you will find a wonderful principal bedroom suite which enjoys the views, having a large en-suite and walk in wardrobe. Our clients have also incorporated bedroom 5 to be used as a dressing room but this could easily be used as a single bedroom / nursery or office if required. There are 3 further bedrooms which are served by the house bathroom which has also undergone recent refurbishment.
The property is heated by a gas central heating system and features underfloor heating to the ground floor extension. It features uPVC double glazing to the original parts of the building whilst the full height glazing of the extension is aluminum framed. There are solar panels to the front elevation.
Externally, the front driveway / parking area provides space for a number of vehicles and at the time of preparing these particulars, our client had commissioned it to be resurfaced in tarmac with block paved detailing – this will be explained further on viewings.
To the rear the gardens have been attractively landscaped to feature a large outside seating area which is paved and extends along the rear of the building with a further timber decked seating area beyond. This overlooks a generous lawned area with mature borders and planting.
The property is positioned in a perfect position for access to Holmfirth High School which is just a short walk away. Wooldale’s village pub and co-op are also close to hand, the centre of Holmfirth is also just over a mile away and enjoys an array of independent businesses, shops, cafes and bars. The village also provides the gateway to some excellent walks into the countryside which surrounds Holmfirth.
