This imposing Ashlar stone fronted property offers an incredible amount of accommodation over 3 floors and a large garden to the side. It enjoys a particularly convenient location, right in the centre of Holmfirth and its distinctive frontage is well known by visitors to the town. The property is grade II listed and believed to have been built as a mission by the Methodist church in the mid 19th century. It has been within the ownership of our client’s family since the late 1940s although they did occupy it prior to then too. The internal accommodation has in the past been subdivided into 2 and includes, 3 reception rooms, 5 bedrooms, 2 kitchens, 2 bathrooms, cellars and storage although we anticipate that buyers will look to carry out their own comprehensive renovation and redesign works.
