Property SummaryThis stunning detached house stands in large gardens and boasts a range of intriguing features including a minstrels gallery-style landing, eye-catching windows, master suite with walk-in wardrobe and a separate garden room.
On the edge of the village of Tankersley and with plenty of open countryside nearby, it offers generously-proportioned accommodation ideal for family living. The busy centre of Barnsley is not too far away and there are excellent links to the UK motorway network.
Tankersley village lies a little under four miles south of Barnsley, where there are ample shopping opportunities including the popular Alhambra Shopping Centre. There is an supermarket within a few hundred metres of the property, along with The Rockingham Centre a sports and social centre that includes a bar, concert and drama facilities, and provision for football, cricket and archery.
Tankersley Manor, a hotel with brasserie, is also less than a mile away, along with several bars, restaurants and fast food outlets. Local bus routes run close by and the Birdwell Interchange junction 36 of the M1, intersecting with the A61 is within easy reach. Doncaster Sheffield Airport is around a 20-mile drive for those travelling further afield.
The property has a private gated driveway with a detached double garage featuring two separate up-and-over doors. There are neat lawns and raised beds with established shrubs and plants, and a stone path leading to the front door.
To the rear is a decked area with open wooden fencing, affording plenty of space for outdoor furniture and barbecue equipment. There is a further paved patio area next to the separate wooden garden room, which is currently used as a pool/games room and equipped with both light and power. The back garden is well-screened by a variety of hedges, trees, bushes and wooden fencing.
Before entering the front door, the eye is caught by the individual design of the property part single, part double, and part triple-storey, as well as the large feature lounge window overlooking the front garden. The accommodation is beautifully presented and immaculately maintained throughout, evident as soon as the viewer enters the hallway.
To the right is the door into the large lounge, which has a wooden laminate floor and recessed ceiling spotlights, and a feeling of space and airiness due to the high ceiling and open landing. There is a white feature fireplace with fitted living flame electric fire, along with integral mantlepiece and display shelving.
The downstairs is predominantly open-plan, with the lounge leading into the kitchen area which has a tiled floor and features a range of high and low-level cupboards, drawers and shelving. There are marble-effect worktops and dark-tiled splashbacks, a one-and-a-half bowl sink with mixer tap, and space for a free-standing oven and hob below a fitted extractor hood. To one side of the kitchen, a door leads to a rear lobby area with separate downstairs toilet and a door into the rear garden.
To the other, the open-plan design continues with double French doors opening onto the rear deck and steps down into the dining room. This is currently used for home gym equipment, as the kitchen is large enough to accommodate a table and chairs.
Off the dining room is another hallway where there is a fitted storage cupboard and the house bathroom, which is fully tiled in neutral shades with patterned accents. It has a wall-mounted heated towel rail; shower cubicle with folding screen door; a bath with wide edges and a shelf above, providing plenty of room for toiletries; a hand basin and WC. At the end of this hall is a ground-floor bedroom, with a round window and embossed wallpaper to one wall.
The second floor is home to the eye-catching minstrels gallery landing, which overlooks the lounge an ideal office or separate study area. Here can also be found the master suite a large bedroom with feature round window and recessed ceiling spotlights, a separate walk-in wardrobe, and en suite bathroom, predominantly tiled in neutral, earthy shades with a patterned border mid-way up the walls.
This room has a shower cubicle with power shower, wide hand basin set into a useful storage cupboard, wall-mounted towel rail and WC. There is also a second bedroom on this floor, in neutral décor with an attractive rose-patterned feature wall, and which has an en suite with hand basin and WC.
On the third floor is a further bedroom, decorated in shades of blue and with a full-height window overlooking the rear garden at one end. This makes an attractive seating or computer area and - coupled with the en suite toilet - would be an ideal room for any in-house teenager keen to enjoy their own space.
The house has double glazing and a gas-fired central heating system with a programmer and individual thermostatic valves to the radiators.
In our opinion, this is a truly beautiful home, characterful and close to open countryside but with easy access to busier town centres. We highly recommend a viewing for potential buyers to fully appreciate the many outstanding features and high standard of accommodation on offer.
