Full description


Both heart and head will fall for this huge Victorian Villa, so large that it has six bedrooms and a one bedroom self- contained annexe. The garden is also unusually long even for this leafy, affluent area of Menston (within walking distance of popular schools and the station. At the front, off street parking for several cars has been sensitively arranged and inside, the sheer size, location and character features are a joy to behold.

In an exclusive area of this sought after village popular with families and professionals this extraordinary house is one of a pair purportedly built in 1906 in a style that would not look out of place in the smart parts of London except for the fact that they are probably twice as big. The hard standing is sufficiently roomy for several cars, leading up past a smart front garden to an impressive front door beneath a porch. Inside does not disappoint with a broad hallway brimming with period features.
The Ground floor
Generations of owners have carefully preserved the delicate plaster cornicing still wending its way high above your head around the two serene reception room with the generous proportions of the Victorian Era. The windows bring in plenty of natural light and leafy views.
To the rear of the property is the more recently added kitchen and dining room, in times gone by maids would have prepared meals in the cellar kitchen. The views over the extensive gardens and countryside beyond are simply sublime. The dining room and kitchen are in need of updating, but what an opportunity to create a really wow space in this spectacular property.

One of the largest bathrooms and separate WC are also located on this level- it would be lovely to see this space with a roll top bath!
