About Law Slack
The property was originally 2 cottages with an attached barn to the side - it is of traditional stone built construction under a stone slate roof. Our clients have owned the property since 1964 and it has been within the same family for over 100 years.

The property is situated up a driveway from Penistone Road and sits within generous gardens which extend to over half and acre at the front, side and rear of the building. Beyond this is an L-shaped block of land in 2 fields extending to 5.76 acres in total.

On the ground floor there are entrance halls to the front and rear, 2 reception rooms and a dining kitchen. Upstairs you will find a landing, 3 double bedrooms and a bathroom. The adjacent barn has been partially converted having a large playroom, office and storage upstairs whilst downstairs has been used as a joiner’s workshop and also incorporates a pantry / utility and downstairs wc. This offers excellent scope for extension of the accommodation or possibly to convert to an annex / holiday cottage depending upon the buyer’s needs.

Externally, the driveway from Penistone Road provides parking for a number of vehicles. There is a lean to on the side of the building housing 2 generous single garages and a further car port at the rear. The gardens are beautifully maintained by our clients and feature extensive lawns, borders, mature trees, greenhouse and summer house. A gateway leads through into the fields at the rear. The second field also has a roadside access from Law Slack Road.

We understand that the property is Freehold and connected to mains water and electricity. The windows are single glazed and heat is provided from the solid fuel fired Rayburn in the kitchen. Drainage is to a new sewerage treatment plant within the grounds.
