About New Laithe House
This impressive double fronted detached house is understood to date back to Victorian times and is of traditional stone built construction under a slate roof. Its dominant features are the 2 large bay windows to either side of the front entrance door – these also serve to enjoy the superb views to the front. The property was renovated circa 2002-2004 by a well know local builder and our clients carried out further works after purchasing in 2006 to relocate and extend the kitchen so that it sits between 2 of the reception rooms making it a truly family friendly “hub” of the home.

It enjoys a pleasant elevated position up above Woodhead Road and is accessed via Moss Edge View – a quality modern development also completed in the early 2000’s. It enjoys private gated parking at the rear and wonderful landscaped gardens to the front which are also designed to take full advantage of the views.

The day to day entrance to the house is at the rear where there is a spacious hall with built in cupboards with access to the downstairs wc. It also opens into a good sized utility room which in turn leads through into the kitchen. The kitchen is fitted with a good range of modern units with a large island unit and plenty of space for a dining table and sofa etc. It features windows to 3 sides and is also partially open to the galleried landing area above with further natural light flooding in from the large glazed panel to the high angled ceiling above. Beyond the kitchen is a snug / family room with bi-folding doors opening out to the garden and a secondary staircase leading up to the first floor.

The two original reception rooms are located either side of the main entrance hall and are identical in size and shape with the aforementioned bay windows enjoying the views. One is used as a formal lounge whilst the other currently described as the playroom and features folding doors which open up into the kitchen. The hallway also features the original staircase to the first floor with period balustrading and a door to the garden with circular leaded glazed panel and matching surround.

The first floor landing gives access to the first 3 double bedrooms and house bathroom. The principal bedroom features a walk in wardrobe and also has an en-suite wc and shower. Bedrooms 2 & 3 are served by the house bathroom. The landing extends into a galleried area with built in storage overlooking the kitchen. This provides access to 2 further bedrooms and a shower room.

The property benefits from a gas central heating system and has wooden framed double glazed windows in keeping with its age with the windows to the front elevation retaining the original leaded lights.

Externally, there is gated parking / driveway area at the rear with access to an outside store / boiler room and a single garage attached to the side of the house. The gardens wrap around the front and side of the building and are attractively landscaped with lawns, stone paved seating areas, well stocked borders and ornamental pond.
