This a rare opportunity to purchase a spacious end terraced house with huge potential to renovate within a short walk of the centre of Holmfirth. It enjoys considerable character and benefits from a generous garden to the front, side and rear. The accommodation comprises: entrance hall, lounge, sitting room, dining kitchen, landing, 3 first floor bedrooms, bathroom and a further bedroom on the second floor. In addition there are 2 vaulted cellars, an attic room, outside store rooms with an additional room above providing potential to create a studio or office space. Externally, the grounds surrounding the property on 3 sides are largely lawned and we understand that there is an access from Greenfield Road at the rear which offers the potential to create parking if reinstated. Opportunities like this are rare to the open market and an internal viewing to fully appreciate the potential.
About The Property
The property was originally a larger double fronted house incorporating the attached property next door but subsequently divided into 2. It features a 3 storey section which is back to back with another cottage and a 2 storey extension to the side which is surrounded by the garden areas. It is of traditional stone built construction under pitched stone slate roofs. The overall internal floor area extends to over 1900 sqft excluding the cellars and outbuildings. Whilst the property requires a comprehensive scheme of modernisation, we anticipate that the successful purchaser could restore the original features and enhance the property with more modern fittings.
