This imposing detached property offers spacious and well presented accommodation, situated a short walk from the centre of Holmfirth and its many amenities. It dates back to Victorian times and many features of this period have been retained, being complimented by quality modern fittings.
About Mill House
The property is of traditional stone construction under a hipped blue slate roof, we understand that it was built circa 1870, allied to Ribbleden Mill. It is accessed from Dunford Road via a gated driveway through the yard of the mill (now known as Holmfirth Dyers) to a private parking area belonging to the house. The slightly elevated position allows a pleasant outlook over the mill buildings and the close proximity to the centre of Holmfirth allows easy access to the town’s many amenities.
Our clients purchased the property circa 2001 and have renovated the property extensively to create a home that retains its original features, complimented by high quality modern fittings. It has a gas central heating system with radiators by Zonda and is connected to all mains services. During their ownership the roof has been repaired, the external walls repointed and a number of the original sash windows refurbished.
It features an impressive 28’ long entrance hall which spans from front to rear, with a grand staircase leading to the first floor. There is a living / dining room which features a superb bay window to the front of the house, this is open plan to the large kitchen which is fitted with bespoke hand made units by Thomas & Thomas. There is also a separate living room which is also of excellent proportions, utility room and downstairs wc on this floor.
The first floor has a tall arched window above the half landing area where stairs continue to the main landing. This is also of a good size, open from front to rear due to the removal of an internal wall which formed the original 4th bedroom. This space has been used by our client as a study and reading area but could easily be restored to a bedroom if required. There are 3 double bedrooms, one having an en-suite shower room and a large house bathroom – both are fitted with high quality modern fittings and finished to an excellent specification.
Externally, there is a driveway and parking area leading up to the front garden area which is level and lawned. This extends to a further less formal garden area beyond.
