This individually designed detached house was built in 1927 and is offered on the open market for sale for the very first time. It offers well presented accommodation with 4 bedrooms and 2 reception rooms but offers further potential for renovation and extension subject to the necessary consents. It enjoys a pleasant position with a half acre plot, outbuildings and generous parking at the rear. Viewing is essential to fully appreciate all that is on offer.

About the property
An attractive double fronted property with stone and rendered frontage and brick walls to the side and rear, sitting beneath a rosemary tiled hipped roof. The house was originally constructed circa 1927 and has remained within the same family ever since. It enjoys a pleasant open aspect to the front with the benefit of an adjacent plot of land extending to half an acre with outbuildings at the rear.

The property is well presented and maintained but some fixtures and fittings would be considered dated. We feel that there is excellent potential to carry out a further scheme of renovation and updating of fixtures and fittings whilst also extending the house at the rear – this is of course subject to obtaining the necessary consents.

Whilst the official entrance door is at the front of the house, our clients use the glazed entrance porch at the rear as the main “day to day” entrance. This doubles up as a pleasant sitting area too. A lobby from here leads into the main entrance hall which features stairs to the first floor and a door into the lounge. The lounge is of a good size and features a bay window to the front. A door leads through into a small study area and then into the conservatory extension at the rear. Also accessible from the central lobby area there is a small utility room and kitchen. A further door leads through from the kitchen to the sitting / dining room which features a log burning stove and window to the front.

On first floor there is a spacious landing area leading to the 4 bedrooms. There are 2 double bedrooms, both facing the front and 2 further single bedrooms. It also features a modern house bathroom and separate wc.

We understand that the property is connected to all mains services but rather than a modern gas central heating system it currently has electric wall mounted heaters as its main source of heating.

Externally, there is a low maintenance garden area to the front of the house and further paved garden area at the rear of the house. Beyond this is an additional plot of land which extends to approximately half and acre which is mostly grassed with a generous parking area brick built stable and a further former piggery.

Gomersal is a popular village location between Cleckheaton and Birstall, with this property sitting almost on the border of Birstall. It enjoys excellent local amenities and is situated in easy reach of the M62 motorway and the large Junction 27 retail park. The property is offered for sale with vacant possession and no upper chain.
