Vicarage Drive, Meltham, Holmfirth, HD9 4JE

Overview

This tastefully extended modern detached home enjoys a choice plot in a popular residential setting. Don’t be deceived by the more modest exterior as it has been transformed by the present owners who have overseen comprehensive improvements and the addition of a breathtaking living / dining room at the rear.

About the property
Our clients purchased this property “off plan” in 2003, being the first to occupy on the development and chose the plot on account of its size and views to the rear. They have enjoyed the last 20 years of living here but are now relocating to a different area. Throughout this period, they have carried out extensive improvements, most notably the stunning rear extension (added circa 2015) which provides a flexible living space. Other more recent improvements include upgrading of the bathrooms and replacement windows and doors.

The property is entered via a porch to the front which in turn leads to the inner hallway. From here there is a lounge with bay window to the front and log burning stove. The kitchen is also accessible from the hall and fitted with an excellent range of units with granite worksurfaces and an impressive Falcon range style cooker. Off the kitchen, you will find a well equipped larder / utility room.

The kitchen is partially open plan to the large living / dining extension which is so sought after in a modern family home. It features a high angled ceiling with tall windows overlooking the garden and taking in the views beyond. There are double doors to the side to provide access to the garden and a log burning stove. Glazed double doors lead back into the lounge. Also on this floor there is a downstairs wc and an integral single garage which is accessible from the entrance porch area.
Upstairs, the landing leads to the 4 good sized bedrooms. The principal bedroom has its own en-suite bathroom as does the 2nd bedroom. Bedroom 3 is a double bedroom and whilst the 4th bedroom is currently used as a dressing room we understand it is able to accommodate a double bed. These 2 rooms are served by the house bathroom. Each of the 3 bathrooms has been recently refurbished (2023) and finished to an excellent modern specification.

It has a gas central heating system with the boiler and hot water storage tank located in the garage. The windows to the original form of the house were replaced circa 2021, they feature attractive matt finished frames and were supplied by Residence 9. There is also an intruder alarm system.

Externally, there is a sloping tarmac driveway leading down to the front of the house and providing access to the integral garage via its remote controlled roller shutter door. There is an electric vehicle charging point and paths to either side of the house. At the rear you will find the large enclosed rear garden which features a long level lawned area with wooden garden room at the end and mature borders.

Vicarage Drive is a well regarded residential street, located just off Wessenden Head Road which makes it convenient for access into the village centre of Meltham which enjoys many amenities. Breathaking open countryside is also within easy reach as the village sits on the edge of the Peak District National Park.
