Ryder & Dutton are proud to bring to the market Whinney Bank House; a substantial period residence set in mature gardens of a plot of approximately 1.5 acres.

Boasting an enviable and prime position within Wooldale, this unique home originally dates back to circa 1800, with the one bedroom annex converted later. The well cared for and much improved accommodation, together with this idyllic rural setting which is also convenient for amenities, is well suited to the growing family, and internal inspection is highly recommended to fully appreciate this beautiful home and its lovely position.

The property itself sympathetically blends Georgian and Victorian features with modern conveniences, with tasteful presentation throughout. The main residence has accommodation spanning four floors. A porch leads to a charming hallway, providing access to the large living room, the cosy snug/sitting room and the elegant dining room. A cellar is accessed beneath the stairs to the first floor. A farmhouse style fitted kitchen features a breakfast bar, AGA, and granite worktops, and leads to a spacious utility/boiler room, which in turn has a staircase to the office above. The first floor consists of a landing area which provides access to four bedrooms and the family bathroom. The master bedroom features fitted wardrobes, and boasts an en suite shower room with panoramic views of the beautiful outlook to the front. The second floor features two further bedrooms, one of which with a recently fitted en suite shower room.

The attached barn conversion has been substantially improved of late, and would make an ideal place for relatives to live together, yet still have independence from the main residence. It could also provide a useful income as a holiday let. The annex can be accessed both externally, and from within the main residence and consists of accommodation spanning three floors. To the ground floor there is an entrance hall with utility and WC, the first floor a modern bathroom and lovely spacious bedroom. The second floor has a kitchen area, with the large lounge area on a higher level boasting fantastic views.

All mains services are available and the property is warmed via a gas fired central heating system.

The property sits in a plot of approximately one and a half acres, with a cobbled courtyard/driveway access which leads to the garage integrated into the annex. There are large mature gardens, with particularly pleasing aspect to the front, and the private garden to the rear featuring a large detached games room with wood burner. Beyond this there is a further field of approximately one acre, ideal for equestrian users.

Standing in a good sized plot not far from Wooldale Village Centre, the property is only minutes from the bustling centre of Holmfirth with a range of boutique shops, restaurants and wine bars, local countryside and highly regarded schools.

An opportunity not to be missed.
