This substantial stone built detached property occupies an enviable location that is convenient for all of Holmfirth’s amenities which are just a short walk away. It was converted from a goods shed from the town’s former railway station and extends to approximately 4700 sqft in total which includes a large 5 bedroom principal dwelling with a 2 bedroom flat and large workshop / garage below.

About Engine House
A quite unique property which extends to approximately 4700 sqft over 4 levels and offers the flexibility to be used in a variety of different ways depending upon the next owners needs. It was originally built circa 1870 as a railway goods shed and is of stone built construction under a replacement pitched roof. Our clients purchased the property circa 1984 and converted it over a series of years following this – they are now looking to downsize.

The main living accommodation is found over the two upper floors which are to be found on the Station Road elevation of the property. There is a central entrance hall with staircase leading to the first floor. To one side of the hall there is a large lounge with feature fireplace and solid fuel burning stove and to the other side is a large living / dining kitchen. Both rooms feature large glazed sections to the gable elevations. There is also cloakroom / utility on this floor and downstairs wc. The upper floor landing gives access to 5 good sized bedrooms, 2 of which have their own en-suite bathrooms. There is also a house bathroom to serve the other 3 rooms.

To the rear elevation the property is to Summervale and is 4 storeys in height - it is here that you will find the access to the large workshop / garage which takes up the majority of the lower floor. There is also an entrance hall with stairs leading up to the lower first floor which was originally part of the main house living accommodation – it is now used as a self-contained annex with a large living room with kitchenette, 2 bedrooms, en-suite and store. We understand that this space was originally accessed by a staircase from the main living accommodation which has since been removed.

The property is generally well presented but we anticipate that buyers will look to update and redesign in order to meet their own tastes and needs. The windows are largely wooden framed double glazed units and there are separate gas central heating systems for the main dwelling and annex.

Externally, there is a tarmac driveway from Station Road which leads down to a parking area in front of the house. The mature gardens surround the property on the front and side elevations. To the rear of the house there is an area of tarmac curtilage which provides access into the workshop.

The location is undoubtedly convenient, with all of Holmfirth’s amenities accessible within easy walking distance. Holmfirth High School is also less than a mile away.
