Entrance Hall & WC
The glazed panelled front door opens into a very spacious entrance hall with plenty of room for cloak and boot storage, featuring a split level spindle staircase rising to a galleried landing. Usefully located just off the entrance hall is a compact wash closet fitted with W.C. and corner hand wash basin sat atop a mahogany style vanity unit.
Open Plan Dining Kitchen
This open plan space is a real selling point of this home, providing a fantastic space to entertain and for family socialising. Having several characterful feature including exposed brickwork and beams to provide a farmhouse kitchen feel, the solid wood kitchen units span across two sides with a breakfast bar area returning to partially divide the kitchen and dining areas. The cream works surfaces have a built in sink and drainer, and a range of appliances are accommodated including integrated dishwasher, built in microwave, a substantial Noir Range cooker sat within the feature chimney breast, and space provided for a large American style fridge freezer. Both areas benefit from laminated flooring and spotlights inset to the ceiling, French doors in the dining area open out onto the patio – perfect for al-fresco dining and BBQ gatherings in the summer.
Accessed from the main entrance hall is this large reception room, with a full bank of windows to one end with French doors inset, allowing plenty of natural light to flood the room. Presented in neutral tones with a papered feature wall, and the central focal point of a stone fireplace with a gas coal burning effect fire inset.
Garage & Storeroom
The garage has an up and over electric door, rear external entrance door out onto the garden, and an integral access door to the kitchen. It benefits from a range of built in units to three sides offering very useful storage and providing space and plumbing for both a washing machine and dryer as well as housing the boiler. A staircase runs up one side leading to a first floor store room which is boarded out with a radiator and a Velux roof light to the sloped ceiling. This room neighbours the single first floor bedroom within the main upstairs living accommodation therefore has plenty of scope for a buyer to consider knocking through to combine the two spaces to create a studio, home office or perhaps an annexe style bedroom if desired (all subject to the relevant consents). There are also lapsed planning permissions which were for a single attached garage with roof space – details of which can be found on the Kirklees planning portal under reference 2013/62/91941/W.
The bathroom is fitted with a modern white and chrome suite including a bath with Victorian style mixer taps and shower head over, separate shower, hand wash basin sat atop a vanity unit and a W.C. The room is finished with white tiled walls with a metallic trim, and benefits from a roof light to the rear and under eaves storage.
The property is accessed down a little known lane, off the main Lightridge road. A pillared entranceway leads to an enclosed parking area for at least four cars and on to the garage. Pathways to either side of the house lead round to the rear garden which has been landscaped for ease of maintenance to create one flat lawn area and a stone flagged patio (which is also accessible via French doors from the open plan kitchen), the rest of the land is tiered in sections which gently step down to a retaining wall and iron railing. This land could be levelled further by a purchaser to create one large, flat space if a buyer particularly wanted more useable garden space – or alternatively could be used as an area for vegetable growing, to establish a kitchen garden for the keen horticulturist!
Master Bedroom & En-suite
The master bedroom is located on the ground floor and has the advantage of built in bedroom furniture, a network of spotlights inset to the ceiling, and a large treble window at one end to enjoy the attractive outlook to the rear. This large double bedroom is served by its own ensuite, comprising step in shower, hand wash basin and W.C., with tiled walls and suspended spotlights to the ceiling. Whilst being perfectly functionable, the ensuite would benefit from a modest upgrade over time.
Upper Floor Study / Living Area
The staircase rises to an incredibly light and spacious upper floor landing with an area directly to the right set within the eaves with an apex ceiling and half-moon window that would lend itself well to use as a games/socialising area for children or teenagers. The landing area then widens out to a larger space with velux window inset to the pitched ceiling and exposed beams and rafters, the Vendor’s currently use this space as a seating area to sit and admire the view via the large half-moon window, however we believe this space could easily be adapted and partition walls added to section off part as a further bedroom or be adjoined with the neighbouring bedroom to create one particularly impressive master suite (all subject to consents).
A good-sized double bedroom, enjoying plenty of natural light courtesy of two roof lights, double doors open into the neighbouring study/living area leaving scope to combine the two areas if desired. This room also benefits from its own hand wash basin to the corner.
Bedrooms Three & Four
A well-presented double bedroom, also having a roof light to either side in addition to built in wardrobes and built in eaves storage. This bedroom provides access to a further room which is presented as a generous single, a corridor could be created to allow this room its own individual entrance door for it to be used as a formal fourth bedroom, equally one may wish to use this room as a dressing room or nursery room therefore keeping the two rooms combined. As mentioned earlier in the brochure, the single room neighbours the store room above the garage. There is scope to combine the two spaces to create a double bedroom if desired, subject to the relevant consents.
