Ashby House enjoys a pleasant semi rural setting between the villages of Clayton and Queensbury just 4 miles south east of Bradford City Centre and 6 miles north of Halifax.


The farmhouse is entered through the kitchen having a range of oak fronted fitted base and wall units with laminate work surfaces and a 1 bowl stainless steel sink. There is plumbing
for a dishwasher and a gas and electric point for a cooker. To the rear of the kitchen is a useful pantry. The kitchen leads through to a good sized dining room with a gas fire set in a stone
surround with wooden beam mantel piece and there are stairs leading up to the first floor. Next to the dining room is a comfortable snug with open fire set in a tiled surround and hearth with canopy and stone chimney breast. Double doors open into a rear porch that opens to the garden and there is a separate utility room housing the gas boiler and also having plumbing for a washing machine. At the end of the house is a well proportioned living room with gas fire set in an 'Adams style' surround with marble inset and hearth, cornice to the ceiling and plaster panelling to the walls. To the rear of the living room is a bathroom with panelled bath, w.c., and pedestal wash basin.

On the first floor the landing, with a range of fitted wardrobes, gives way to three double bedrooms, two of which have fitted wardrobes. There is a fourth single bedroom and a spacious
bathroom with linen cupboard, panelled bath, twin wash basins set in a vanity base unit, bidet, w.c., and separate shower cubicle.
