Property SummaryA well-presented, versatile and tastefully-decorated Yorkshire home over four storeys, including a substantial basement and converted loft. Adjacent to mature woodland but not far from the town centre - and within a short walk of a primary school with an outstanding Ofsted report - this is an ideal home for a family with growing children and/or pets.
A little to the east of the town centre, Haynes Street is towards the end of a row of sandstone terraced homes located adjacent to wooded slopes above the River Worth. The 708 and 728 buses run from stops on nearby Parkwood Street to Keighley town centre while a convenience store, off-licence and a sandwich shop are within a short walk. Parkwood Primary School rated outstanding by Ofsted at its last inspection in 2011 is also within walking distance. The towns main railway station is only a little further away, offering regular connections to Bradford and Leeds to the south and Skipton to the north while Leeds Bradford International Airport is within an hours drive. Town centre amenities include a good selection of bars, restaurants and pubs, most of the large supermarket chains have a presence while both independent and high street names can be found in the Airedale Shopping Centre. The Brontë hills, the Keighley and Worth Valley Railway and the Yorkshire Dales are all also within easy reach by car.
The front of the property is separated from the road by a waist-high sandstone wall with steps leading to a flagstone courtyard leading to the front door. Another courtyard garden can be found to the rear, enclosed by stone walls with steps leading to a paved patio accessed via double doors from the living room. A gate opens onto an access road to the rear of the property while the garden also includes a covered log store.
Great pains have been taken with the décor throughout the property to give the house the feel of a cosy Yorkshire country cottage blending with a few modern touches here and there.
The front door opens immediately onto a kitchen with a stone-tiled floor but dominated by the pine mantle surrounding an Aga-style range with dual oven and grill, four-ring hob and hotplates. A stainless steel sink with drainer and mixer tap sits beneath the window overlooking the front of the property, with rolled laminate worktops either side and splashback tiles above. Beneath, there is space and plumbing for a washing machine and dishwasher while the opposite side of the kitchen is equipped with base and wall units above and below an additional rolled laminate work top, which also has matching splashback tiles above. There is still space for a family-sized dining table and chairs while lighting is provided by modern, recessed LED spotlights in the ceiling. One internal door leads down to the cellar while a second opens into a hallway where stairs rise to the first floor. Another wooden, glass panelled door opens from here into the living room.
The cellar is already fitted with a stone floor, wall-mounted radiator, storage space and fluorescent lighting but offers a new owner plenty of potential for further redevelopment, perhaps as a games room, a second reception room, fitness room or additional bedroom.
The living room is equipped with a solid-wood floor, matching shelving, a TV point and the double external door leading to the stone-flagged patio in the rear garden. However, the cosy cottage theme is underlined once more by the traditional fireplace with its stone hearth and surround framing an authentic, cast-iron wood burner.
The stairs to the first floor lead to a door which opens onto a landing where additional internal doors open onto a double and single bedroom, both fitted with solid wood floors and wall-mounted radiators. The double room includes some shelving and storage either side of the chimney breast. The house bathroom is also located on the first floor and includes a laminate, tile-effect floor, pedestal sink with separate hot and cold taps, a WC with scallop-effect cistern top and a bath with overhead shower, surrounded by blue and white mosaic tiles.
Another set of stairs leads to the large, carpeted master bedroom in the converted loft space, equipped with under-eaves storage on both sides of the house, a Velux window and modern recessed ceiling-mounted LED spotlights.
The house is double glazed and equipped with a programmable, gas-fired central heating system providing warmth and hot water. Additional warmth is provided by the wood burner in the living room, fuelled by logs which can be stored in the rear courtyard garden.
