In addition, the ground floor comes complete with a further two sizeable reception rooms and downstairs cloakroom. Whilst on the first floor there are four double bedrooms, two of which benefit from ensuite facilities (with the potential for a third subject to consents), in addition to a well presented family bathroom. One of the huge appeals to Clough House lies within the generous outside space on offer, with mature, walled and south facing gardens and two separate private driveways offering parking for several cars. However, the hidden gem included in this sale is a detached coach house, offering a double garage on ground level and with the upper floor recently tastefully converted into a compact separate annexe. This flexible space offers a kitchen, shower room and mezzanine level within the eaves, all with character features on display such as the exposed beams and rafters yet complimented by contemporary touches such as the modern shower room, glass balustrade staircase and Velux roof light. This would certainly appeal to buyers looking to accommodate another generation of family within their next move, or as a holiday let to supplement income (subject to the relevant consents) or as a separate home office space for those who work from home. Approximate distances from: Huddersfield 3 miles, Holmfirth 6 miles, Wakefield 12 miles & Leeds 20 miles.
