Property Description

Full description

Tenure: Freehold

ACCOMMODATION A most impressive period semi detached family home located in the highly regarded St Johns area of Wakefield.

This distinctive property has been tastefully and cleverly upgraded throughout now providing a level of presentation which is rarely found on the open market and is in keeping with the character of the building.

The accommodation is arranged over three floors and approached via a glazed reception vestibule leading in turn to a central reception hall and then an impressive sitting room with bay window, a large separate dining room and a family breakfast room with adjacent kitchen.
To the first floor are three double bedrooms along with the house bathroom which is fitted with a luxury suite including free standing roll top bath and separate double shower.

On the second floor are three further double bedrooms which are serviced by an attractive shower room.

In addition to the living accommodation is a sizeable cellar area. This can be accessed both from inside the house and externally and whilst at present this area offers useful storage, in our opinion the cellar provides an opportunity to increase the living space, potentially creating a self contained annexe (subject to the necessary consents).

A significant amount of hard landscaping has been undertaken within the external areas to provide appealing yet relatively low maintenance gardens, ideal for outdoor entertaining. A secure electric wrought iron gate leads in to a cobbled drive for ample off road parking and a detached double garage.

St Johns retains an enviable reputation as one of Wakefield's most sought after locations. Just a short distance from the commercial centre and there conveniently placed to access a wide range of retails and recreational facilities. There are outstanding schools located within the area including both the Queen Elizabeth Grammar School and Wakefield Girls High which are both within walking distance. The commuter is also well served by the nearby motorway network along with the train station at Westgate which is on the East Coast main line with daily services in to London and Leeds.

BASEMENT The basement can be accessed externally to the rear and also via a staircase from the storage cupboard within the entrance hall. The basement is split into three large separate rooms and in our opinion represents an excellent opportunity to be developed to provide further living accommodation and potential self-contained granny flat style living. The basement also houses the gas fired central heating boiler. 

OUTSIDE Vehicle access is provided by secure electric wrought iron gates which lead in to a cobbled drive offering ample off road parking. This in turn leads to a detached double garage.

To the rear a small and enclosed paved patio area located immediately outside the kitchen gives a most attractive sitting area with views over the rear garden.

Steps lead down to the garden which has undergone a comprehensive scheme of hard landscaping to create a peaceful, appealing and low maintenance space ideal for entertaining. The over hang of the rear garage is a particularly useful during shelter during the typically unpredictable British summer.
 

GARAGE Detached brick built double garage with up and over main door, power and lighting and storage space to the roof. The rear of the garage extends to provide a covered area within the rear garden, providing a useful shelter for inclimant weather if outdoor entertaining during the summer months.
