Were delighted to add this immaculately presented, three-bedroom, semi-detached home on a quiet cul-de-sac in a village location to our portfolio in Yorkshire.
In South Kirkby between Barnsley and Pontefract, the property is within easy reach of both the A1 and the Dearne Valley railway line but still offers many of the advantages of quiet village life, with open green spaces and even a pond almost on the doorstep.
Faith Street is part of a residential development on the north side of South Kirkby accessed via Carr Lane the main road connecting to the centre of the village where amenities include a post office, convenience store, an off-licence, a selection of takeaways, a bakery, and the well-regarded Travellers Inn, described as an inviting local by CAMRA. Moorthorpe Station offers connections to Sheffield, Wakefield, York and Leeds while schools nearby include St Josephs Catholic Primary and Minsthorpe Community College.
Smart and modern from the outside, the property is divided from the road by a low, brick-built wall with pillars and decorative wrought-iron railings. A block-paved driveway, bordered to the left by head-high timber fencing, leads to the single garage with a small paved courtyard offering access to the front door to the right. Access to the neat and tidy, enclosed rear garden is via decorative but secure wrought iron gates. Features include an elevated, wooden decked area surrounded by mature plants and shrubs, a well-kept lawn and head-high timber boundary fencing offering privacy from neighbouring properties.
The property boasts both cavity wall and loft insulation as well as roof-mounted solar panels, generating power and energy to supplement the programmable gas-fired central heating system, which provides warmth and hot water. All rooms are fitted with radiators and the house is also double glazed throughout.
The main access is via the front door which opens onto a reception hall with carpeted stairs rising to the first floor ahead and an internal door opening onto the sitting room to the right.
A bay window overlooking the front aspect floods the sitting room with light. The room includes TV and phone points and is fitted with laminate wood floor, repeated elsewhere on the ground floor.
Pine base and wall units in the modern fitted kitchen/diner offer plenty of options when it comes to storage, supplemented by a large under-stairs cupboard. An electric oven, gas hob with concealed extractor over, space and plumbing for a washing machine, a stainless steel sink with retro-design mixer taps, multiple double power points and LED overhead spotlights are all incorporated into the design. Worktops are complemented by splashback tiles behind all preparation areas, while access to the conservatory is via double sliding UPVC doors from the dining area.
The conservatory overlooks the rear garden and is fitted with a radiator for warmth in winter, power sockets and a dark wood floor.
The stairs to the first floor lead to a carpeted landing with access to the loft and internal doors opening onto all three bedrooms and the house bathroom. Of the two double bedrooms, one is carpeted and equipped with adjustable overhead spotlights while the other is fitted with a dark wood laminate floor. The single bedroom is used by the current owners as a dressing room but could easily be converted to a nursery room or an office.
The modern house bathroom includes a panelled bath, pedestal sink and WC with wood seat and is tiled throughout.
In our view, this is a property which could suit either first-time buyers or second-steppers moving up the property ladder, perhaps from a town centre apartment. Modern in both equipment and design, very little if any – work is required to enhance the accommodation on offer, save perhaps some personal touches. However, as ever, we would thoroughly recommend a viewing, both to appreciate the high standard of accommodation on offer and the convenient yet peaceful location.
