Property Description

Full description

Tenure: Freehold

A most outstanding and rare opportunity to purchase this fine period home located on the fringe of Baildon Village and within close proximity attractive countryside as well as Shipley Glen and Baildon Moor. Occupying an established private site of very generous proportions, incorporating lovely family gardens which are predominantly laid to lawn and benefit from a southerly aspect, this stone-built Victorian property was built in 1872 for a local business man and his wife. Extended in 1874, the property later became semi-detached when the adjoining cottages were separated, leaving an individual home ideal for a larger or growing family and incorporating four reception rooms and four bedrooms. Complemented further by some lovely character features including the original hand carved fire surround in the Dining-Sitting Room which has the initials of the original owner and the date as well as the striking tower which provides a study space, the property also has the benefit of a courtyard to the front providing generous parking space and a double garage. Very well screened from West Lane and virtually impossible to appreciate from the outside regardless, we highly recommend a full internal viewing to be able to appreciate the complete picture!
