Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Bracken Hall is a remarkable detached home of splendid grandeur, set within idyllic grounds of approximately 4.5 acres(with an option to purchase a further 17 acres) and in beautiful surroundings. The home has undergone significant and sympathetic refurbishment and modernisation by the current owner and has created an exceptional family home of rare quality. Located between the villages of Denholme and Oxenhope this is a quaint and beautiful semi-rural setting whilst being conveniently situated for easy access to the principal business centres of West Yorkshire.
Dating back to the late 1800’s and built for a wool mill owner the property offers a wealth of internal accommodation that exudes much of its original character whilst providing the comfort and convenience of modern day living. This is a substantial home with generous gardens and grounds.
Through the front door you are welcomed into an impressive L shaped reception hall with a striking mullioned stained glass window up above at half landing level. The majority of the principal rooms and the cloakroom on the ground floor lead off the hall, a grand mahogany staircase takes you up to a part galleried landing and the first floor accommodation.
The three principal reception rooms are all great spaces with many superb features. The drawing room is the largest and has a wide window to front with fantastic views over the gardens, a magnificent ornate panelled ceiling and feature fireplace. The adjacent dining room has similar views through a large bay window with window seat below, a feature fireplace and enough room for a sizeable dining table. The sitting room also has a large bay window and Adams style fire surround, a fitted gas coal effect fire providing a cosy space for relaxing.
Sat across the hall is the kitchen, with adjoining breakfast room, the utility room and butler’s pantry (with access to the cellar space). The kitchen has a wide window with an appealing outlook down the driveway and gardens towards the front gates. Featuring a central island, the wooden units are handmade and incorporate granite worktops, tiled surrounds and concealed lighting. A two oven Aga sits within a brick fire surround, this is in addition to the more modern range of Gaggenau appliances. The breakfast room provides space for a large table and is afforded warmth by a remote controlled gas stove. There is a walk in store cupboard and pantry cupboard with fitted shelves conveniently located along with space for a large American style fridge freezer. Beyond the kitchen is a rear entrance to the courtyard where there is an additional external kitchenette and further outbuildings/storerooms plus access to the integral triple garage.
To the first floor there are four double bedrooms and a study. All bedrooms come with their own luxurious en-suite bathroom, all of which have underfloor heating. To the second floor there is a further bedroom with adjacent bathroom. There is also a further storeroom; a home to numerous electrical controls and a hatch for roof access.
Bracken Hall is approached via impressive wrought iron gates and a winding driveway that splits at the house, there is ample parking toward the left and the garage and detached barn is toward the far right. The approach to the house gives a real sense of arrival with feature lampposts lining the drive and a mature collection of trees either side. The formal gardens are arranged to the south of Bracken Hall and equate to approximately 4.5 acres and are well tended with a mixture of lawn, flower beds, mature trees, paving and a standout water feature with fountains. Flanking the gardens is further woodland and paddocks that ensure privacy and seclusion and are also available for purchase by way of separate negotiation (approximately 17 acres).
A detached barn provides further storage or garaging and it has its own electrical and water supply. A children’s play area or barbeque area with a recess for a trampoline is also a great family area. A tennis court and helipad are the two finishing touches to complete a home fit for those who enjoy the finer things in life.
The present owner has had drawings approved for the creation of a new wing including a leisure centre and further living accommodation which has been granted to almost double the footprint.
Sat within West Yorkshire, Denholme and Oxenhope are pleasant villages that offer a wide range of daily facilities and amenities, from schools, pharmacies, pubs, GPs, post office and much more. The cities of Leeds and Bradford are within commuting distance, not to mention easy access to the M1/M62 motorway networks. For those travelling further afield, or if the helicopter is in for a service then Leeds/ Bradford Airport is also nearby.
We recommend an early inspection to appreciate this spectacular home in its entirety.
