About Graystones
We understand that the property originally dates back to circa 1860 and was extended shortly after. It is of traditional stone built construction under 2 stone slate roofs which meet in the middle of the house with a valley gutter. Whilst it was built as a detached dwelling it is linked to the adjacent property at a lower level by way of a single storey wooden outbuilding.

It enjoys a pleasant position set back from Lane Head Road and enjoying pleasant views over the village and being situated in easy reach of its many amenities. The property occupies a larger than expected plot which extends to 0.42 acre and includes a driveway to the side leading to a generous parking area at the rear of the house with detached double garage, outbuildings and extensive gardens beyond.

There is an entrance hall to the front of the house with a beautiful spindle staircase leading to the first floor and reception rooms to either side of the hall. In the rear section of the house you will find the dining kitchen and a further good sized living room. On the first floor there is a landing area, 4 double bedrooms and a house bathroom. The principal bedroom has its own en-suite shower room. There is also good sized cellar room beneath the house.

The property is generally well maintained and presented with a number of traditional features and a gas central heating system, although we do anticipate that future owners will want to put their own stamp on the property and update it to their own tastes.

Shepley is a much sought after village and enjoys good local amenities which are all just a short walk away from the house. These include the village co-op, 3 local pubs, café, hair and beauty salons. Shepley Junior and Infant School is just a short walk away and the village railway station is located on the Penistone line with a regular service to Huddersfield, Barnsley and Sheffield.
