3 bedroom detached house for saleBriestfield Road, Briestfield, DEWSBURY, West Yorkshire
Sold STC £650,000
A rare opportunity to buy an equestrian property in the rural village of Briestfield, including approximately 6.5 acres of land, a farmhouse with an attached split level barn which is ripe for conversion to perhaps create a separate dwelling or to adjoin with the existing farmhouse to create an impressive living space (both subject to the relevant consents), two brick built stable blocks containing 11 stables in total, ménage, a large agricultural barn with adjoining smaller barn and a field shelter/haybarn within the fields. The farm is set up away from the road, accessed via its own private driveway with generous parking provisions, two single garages, gardens to the front and rear of the farmhouse and an outside covered swimming pool! The property itself would benefit from a scheme of modernization throughout, it briefly comprises 3 double bedrooms (master with ensuite bathroom), dining kitchen, garden room, sitting room and ground floor shower room. This farm would most likely appeal to both equestrian purchasers and developers and early viewing is highly recommended. Approximate distances from Huddersfield 7 miles, Wakefield 9 miles, Leeds 21 miles and Sheffield 25 miles.

Hay Barn/Field Shelter
Further up the field there is a shelter which is covered to three sides with congregated iron sheets and is currently used for storage of hay.
A barn constructed of red brick is attached to the rear corner of the property, it is currently used for storage of hay and straw and has a mezzanine upper floor covering approximately half of the square footage. This barn has fabulous potential to perhaps convert and combine with the farmhouse, to create a very impressive L-shaped property (subject to consents).
Stable Block & Tack Room
The primary stable block of red brick construction offers six American barn style internal stables with an access door to the corridor at either end. Adjoining the stables is a feed room and tack room with a ladder leading through a hatch to a first floor which has been used for storage.
Stable Block Two
This stable block is of red brick construction and partially rendered, offering four large stables within and an access corridor in addition to a further stable attached to one end.
Conveniently located to the side of the two stable blocks is a small sand covered manège, fully enclosed by a brick wall with a wrought iron access gate.
A concrete slope leads up from the stable yards into the rear fields where two barns can be accessed via 5 bar gates. This would be ideally suited for storage of hay/straw or machinery.
A well-proportioned reception room displaying character features such as the twin beams to the ceiling and charming built in window seat. A polished wood fireplace is mounted to the far wall, housing a gas fire within.
Also to the ground floor is a shower room located just off the entrance hall, this is fitted with a walk in shower, hand wash basin and W.C., and houses the Worcester boiler.
Master Bedroom & En-Suite
The master is particularly generous in size, with double aspect windows offering attractive views over the surrounding countryside. This bedroom has the advantage of a large en-suite bathroom fitted with a white suite including bath, hand wash basin, W.C. and a separate shower.
Bedrooms 2 & 3
A further two double bedrooms are situated on the first floor, one of which benefits from a range of fitted wardrobes and which has great potential and room to add a 2nd en-suite to the corner (subject to the relevant consents).
Gardens & Pool
Directly to the front of the farm house is a walled cottage garden, planted with mature shrubs, with the main gardens lying to the rear of the property. As previously mentioned, the garden room leads out onto a stone flagged patio which is turn leads up to a second tiered patio then up to the lawned garden. From the garden one can access the outside swimming pool with a hard plastic cover which slides back when the pool is in use, and with a decked surround. We must advise that checks haven’t been made to see if the pool is in working order and we understand it hasn’t been in use for some time, therefore we suggest making your own checks prior to offering.
The property benefits from two single garages, both having electric up and over doors. One of which is attached to the farm house, and the other attached to stable block 1.
The characterful farmhouse style dining kitchen is fitted with a range of high and low level units to two sides with a tiled work surface and splash back above, spotlights inset to the ceiling and parquet flooring. The kitchen would benefit from a modest scheme of modernization but is perfectly liveable and contains all of the required appliances, including a one and a half bowl sink, integral fridge and freezer, washing machine concealed within the units and a white Range Cooker set within the chimney breast alcove. The room has a double window above the sink offering pleasant views to the front elevation, and a windowed door through to the garden room.
The UPVC framed garden room is flooded with natural light from all angles with French doors leading straight out onto the patio thus creating a great space for BBQ’s and entertaining, having grey tiled flooring underfoot.
