Property Description

Dating back to the mid 1800s is this very spacious character filled country residence in the very heart of Holmfirth with a huge garden and lovely village and countryside views. Internally the property is finished to a very high standard (the current owner has undertaken works such as re-wiring) but there is also the potential to add value by finishing the work started on the generous cellar and completing the permission for the drive way and double garage. The garden is approximately an acre of lawns, terraced sitting areas and woodland and provides a huge opportunity for the keen gardener, small holder or young explorer with the added benefit of being largely wild and maintenance free. The living accommodation briefly comprises hallway, lounge, sitting room, dining kitchen, downstairs shower room, part converted cellar, three first floor bedrooms, family bathroom and possible separate WC. The loft is a versatile bedroom suite of two spacious rooms. Single garage and huge garden which can be sub-divided if preferred.
