Property SummaryAn extended property with a separate annex in delightful grounds, a double garage, a cellar, large fitted kitchen and double conservatory.
Just a couple of miles from the centre of Wakefield, within easy reach of the motorway network and close to a couple of good schools, this is a generously-proportioned, versatile family home offering a new owner with an eye for a project plenty of scope.
The property is located a little south-west from the centre of Wakefield and within easy reach of the M1. Frequent bus services run to Wakefield City Centre, Ossett, Batley and Dewsbury from stops a few yards from the front door. Northern Rail services from Wakefield connect with Sheffield, Huddersfield, Dewsbury and Leeds while Grand Central services to Londons Kings Cross can be in the capital in approximately two and a half hours.
Amenities nearby include The Old Mill pub which serves traditional pub fayre as well as bottled and hand-pulled ales. A good selection of shops can also be found on the high street in Horbury, which is home to a medical centre and pharmacy, a couple of butchers, an off-licence, a florists, several hairdressers, a hardware store, a jewellers, a Co-op convenience store and a number of takeaways. The City of Wakefield Golf Club is just a short drive away.
For those interested in schools, the Horbury Academy and the Horbury Primary Academy both rated as good by Ofsted at their last inspections are under 700m away. The One Small Step Day Nursery is also within easy reach.
A gated drive leads from the road outside along the front of the house to the garage and studio annex to the rear of the property. Neat and tidy stone-edged beds are planted with shrubs, flowers and ornamental trees with a separated flagstone path leading to the front door. Boundaries are marked by tall hedges offering privacy from neighbouring properties.
The enclosed rear garden is laid mostly to lawn and is also surrounded by green hedges and trees. Features include a greenhouse and timber storage shed, a pond, a rockery planted with mature shrubs and flowers and a garden bench made from solid Yorkshire stone.
The front door opens onto a bright, airy hallway within an extension built onto the south-westerly-facing elevation of the house. An internal door ahead opens onto a ground-floor bedroom with en-suite shower room, a double integral wardrobe and wall-mounted radiator beneath the window overlooking the driveway. The partially-tiled en suite includes a modern digital shower with both wall and ceiling-mounted heads within a quadrant enclosure, a pedestal sink with shelf and mirror above and its own WC.
A door to the left of the hallway leads to the fitted kitchen with tiled floor. Dark-wood base and wall units can be found beneath white worktops as well as a breakfast bar which offers additional preparation space. White splashback tiles with decorative accents are fitted above the cooking areas, as well as the four-ring gas hob which has a concealed extractor above and an electric oven beneath. There is space and plumbing for both a dishwasher and washing machine as well as a separate tumble drier. The design also incorporates a composite sink in white with a mixer tap above, fixtures for a wall-mounted TV and adjustable ceiling-mounted spotlights.
A door from the kitchen opens onto a hallway where stairs rise to the first floor with another door leading on into the carpeted living room. Here, a delightful, stone-built feature fireplace with a solid wood mantle and integral display shelving draws the eye, bracketed by an alcove to one side offering space ideal for larger pieces of furniture and a window to the other. The ceiling boasts decorative plaster coving while the room includes a TV point as well as wall and ceiling-mounted lighting. The hallway at the foot of the stairwell also offers access to a large conservatory built across the north-east-facing elevation of the property - used as an additional reception room by the vendors and fitted with wall-mounted gas fires, a TV point and power sockets. An arched cellar has also been converted into an office complete with power points and Ethernet connection.
The stairs to the first floor lead to a landing with internal doors opening onto two carpeted double bedrooms as well as the fully-tiled house bathroom including a raised corner bath with shower above, a WC with dual flush and a pedestal sink. The larger of the two first-floor bedrooms includes double integral wardrobes with sliding mirrored doors, a light fitting with decorative coving and a window overlooking the rear garden. The second smaller room also includes some integral storage cupboards.
The outbuilding to the rear of the property currently used for business studio by the vendor could equally be used as a granny annex, a teenagers hideaway or a games room with its own independent fitted kitchen and loo attached to the double garage. The kitchen area includes a wall-mounted, fold-away table, stainless steel composite sink with drainer and chrome mixer tap, light-wood base and wall units with adjustable, and ceiling mounted spotlights above the cooking and preparation areas. The separate WC is tiled and includes a low-level toilet with dual flush and a pedestal sink.
The main property benefits from double glazing and a programmable gas-fired central heating system with separate thermostat and individual controls to regulate heat from each of the radiators. Some low-energy lighting has been fitted to fixed points around the house.
