UNEXPECTANTLY BACK ON THE MARKET - Are you looking for that ideal family detached house in one of the most desirable parts of Barnsley? Here it is - not only in the lovely area of Staincross but in the exclusive The Balk. Properties here don't become available very often so don't miss out!!

From Staincross you can look out across the countryside and into the Pennines. It's one of the most sought after parts of Barnsley and you can easily see why. Properties here don't come available very often but just occasionally, after living in this lovely house for 30 years, its time for the current owners to downsize and give someone else the chance to enjoy this beautiful house in a beautiful location.

Staincross is ideal for getting onto the M1 and quick commuting or for getting out into the lovely countryside. As one of the highest points around Barnsley the views are stunning in all directions. It still maintains a community feeling but The Balk is something special. An exclusive area of individual houses on good size plots and most are now sporting well established gardens.

16 The Balk has been lovingly cared for. It's been a family home but modernised very, very tastefully. The kitchen/breakfast room is very stylish and has many integrated appliances including microwave, oven, hob and dishwasher plus space and fittings for washing machine, full height fridge and full height freezer.

The living room and dining room open into one large, tastefully decorated space with a bay window to maximise the light at one end and double doors leading out onto a raised patio with extensive gardens beyond.

The downstairs also benefits from having a double bedroom with it's own en-suite. It's ideal for a self contained guest suite or could be used as a granny annexe or teenage kids hideaway. It's flexible to be used as you need it to be used.

Upstairs is the master bedroom. It faces the front garden and so benefits from the bay window to maximise light. The current owners have installed a high quality and comprehensive range of fitted wardrobes and drawers. This really sets the room off well and gives you loads of storage space ready built in.

The second bedroom is also a generous double and has a further comprehensive range of high quality, modern looking, bedroom furniture.

The third bedroom on this floor will make a fantastic nursery or smaller child's room with views over the lovely front garden and right next to Mum and Dads bedroom for those times when you just need a hug in the night!

The bathroom is another fantastic refurbishment. Fully tiled, with a freestanding glass sided shower cubicle, a large standing bath with centre taps, toilet, and, a washbasin built into storage cupboards it's really impressive and gives you that WOW factor. You wont rush to get out of here!!

Outside there's loads of space. A long front garden has a separate raised parking area for one car plus the long drive will easily accommodate a further three or more cars. The front garden is laid mainly with lawn but has well established planting to give the garden a beautiful range of colour.

The rear garden starts with a raised patio area - ideal for enjoying the summer sun. You step down onto a lawned area complete with established border planting and then through a gate into the "working" bit of the garden where vegetables are grown and with plenty space for a the shed and greenhouse.

Overall its a lovely house that has been tastefully refurbished to a very high quality. It's location alone is worth every penny of the price and you'll not find such a flexible layout in many houses. The downstairs bedroom and en-suite giving you a huge range of options as to how you use the space. Plus that WOW factor bathroom and beautiful kitchen/breakfast room and that's all before you test out the garden. What's not to like about this house?
