Asking Price Of:

Falhouse Lane, Whitley, Dewsbury, WF12 0NJ


A unique opportunity arises to purchase this substantial stone built detached bungalow set in a much sought after rural setting surrounded by approximately 9 acres of land, gardens and additional grounds. It requires comprehensive modernisation but has potential to create a more substantial dwelling subject to the necessary consents being obtained.

About Headlands Farm
The property comprises a substantial stone built detached bungalow which sits within a plot of 9 acres in a sought after rural setting. It is of stone built construction beneath a pitched stone slate roof and is believed to have been built in 1950. It has remained within the ownership of the current family since the 1960s.

The ground floor features an open entrance porch at the front, leading to the hallway which features a staircase to the first floor. There are 2 good sized reception rooms on this level – the lounge has a large bay window to the side and the dining room has a door giving access to the conservatory extension at the rear. The kitchen has a side entrance porch off which is the main day to day entrance. Also on this floor are 2 double bedrooms which are served by a bathroom and separate wc. On the upper floor there is a large landing area with access to a shower and wc. There are also 2 good sized double bedrooms.

The property is connected to mains water, gas and electricity. Foul water drains to a septic tank which we understand might not be up to modern regulations.

We do anticipate that the next owner would look to carry out extensive renovation and redesigning of the accommodation and that there is the potential to create a more substantial dwelling in line with modern tastes on the site.

Externally, the property is accessed via a gated driveway from Falhouse Lane which runs alongside the house and leads to a detached double garage with workshop at the rear. Beyond here there is a former tennis court which provides a generous area of hard standing for parking vehicles and a stable block at one end. There are also pleasant mature gardens to the front and side of the house.

Beyond the immediate grounds there are two fields to the side and rear which total approximately 8.58 acres. Included within these fields is a wooden barn and lambing shed.

Properties of this type and location are rare to the market and viewing is strongly recommended.
