Full description

Set in vast lawned gardens and woodland, this beautiful, 7 bedroom, C18th Century period property offers ideal scope and potential to create a truly stunning individual property. Situated in the centre of the picturesque village of Harthill, immediately adjacent to All Hallows Church, the property was rebuilt C1720 for the 2nd Reverend John Hewitt.  Gaining Grade II listed status in 1966 and now being used as a family home.

Built of Ashlar Sandstone under a Westmoreland slate hipped roof, architectural features of the property include raised quoins, bolection moulding and a fine early-C18th Century cantilevered oak staircase with alternate barley-sugar and slender, turned balusters. At its foot a cupboard with linenfold panelling re-used from the old C16th Century Rectory:

Harthill village has the distinction of being the most southerly village and most southerly parish of the county of Yorkshire.  Lying close to the M1 motorway, equidistant from junctions 30 and 31, therefore being ideally placed for commuting to Sheffield, Rotherham and Chesterfield, or farther afield, but retaining an old village feel within a vast panorama of countryside.  Local shopping facilities can be found in the village along with good local schooling.   Nearby Harthill reservoir provides recreational facilities, while for the budding sailor, it is also the home of Rotherham Sailing Club.
