A Brief History 
Built in 1852 it has been the official residence of the minister holding office at St Augustine’s Church in the parish of Scissett which is roughly equidistant between Huddersfield, Wakefield, Barnsley and Holmfirth. The property was sold by the church in 1991 when the current and only private owners bought the property and carefully restored it to its former glory. Given it is Grade II listed it is important to note that all renovation work and Orangery extension have already been completed.

Some Period Features 
Whilst this period property has a contemporary twist, many period features have been retained and restored including; dado rails, deep skirting boards, ornate mouldings to walls and ceilings, ceiling roses and inglenook fireplaces.

Dining Kitchen & Orangery 
The social hub of this perfect family home is the newly created open plan dining kitchen and orangery. The stunning kitchen is of an individual bespoke design with hand crafted solid wood units finished with a granite work surface which extends into an especially sociable breakfast bar. Incorporated within the kitchen are three ovens including a vogue steam oven, a five burner gas hob, wine cooler display fridge, dishwasher and tall freezer and tall fridge. The hard wood orangery with underfloor heating is a fabulous addition to the property which is flooded with natural light and spills effortlessly into the garden and patio which affords room for a full family dining table and separate living/seating area.

Reception Rooms 
In addition to the aforementioned orangery there are three further reception rooms each having an abundance of character and charm. The dining room is a wonderful arena for the more formal dining occasions with its polished wood floor and grand inglenook fireplace in addition to French doors which lead out into the garden. The sitting room enjoys all these same qualities and is a perfect principle reception room with dual aspect to side elevation. The drawing room is a more cosy reception room with ornate fireplace having French doors opening onto the side garden.

The Utilities 
The ground floor has a separate WC with contemporary suite and a full kitchen has been installed in the well-equipped utility which is located in the basement creating an abundance of pantry storage and food preparation space for the larger gatherings.

First Floor 
To the first floor there are four double bedrooms. The master suite with pleasant garden and copse views has sumptuous built in robes and vanity units in addition to its own contemporary ensuite which has a high quality double shower fitted with a mains Grohe shower. The elegant guest suite has a bank of sliding robes and is accompanied by its own large ensuite shower room. Bedroom three and four are both well-presented and are served by the decadent house bathroom which has a luxury sunken bath and scope to install a double shower unit.

Second Floor 
Whilst the rest of the house has been finished to a perfect standard, the second floor is still somewhat of a blank canvass yet perfectly ready for occupation. It comprises three rooms, two of which could be utilised as double bedrooms five and six with a games room or study in the middle. It would also make an ideal teenager suite where it would have living room, bedroom, bathroom and even a kitchenette subject to any necessary permissions. This floor also has cavernous storage cupboards into the eves.

The Hayloft 
A substantial detached stone building which has a character and charm all of its own, measuring a generous 534 square feet currently used as garaging for up to three vehicles and a storeroom, it has scope, subject to planning to convert to a bungalow barn conversion style cottage for extended family which may be especially valuable given the flat locality and proximity to amenities and bus routes. A separate double/triple garage could then be constructed subject to the necessary consents.

Externally 
Good parking provision for numerous vehicles is accessed through the gated entrance. A cottage garden area is devoted to raised beds and greenhouse, whilst most of the rest of the expansive south facing, private and enclosed grounds are laid to lawn and mostly flat. The garden is also still much of a blank canvass for the new owner to cultivate and organically stamp their own identity on this stunning residence.

Agents Notes 
The property benefits from mains gas, mains electricity as well as main water and sewerage. It has an alarm system, hardwood double glazing and fibre optic broadband available.
