The Old Stables
Externally the property has the huge benefit of a completely separate detached building to the side which was previously a stable block or coach house to the main residence, currently used as a garage, workshop, garden store and W.C., and retaining features such as a large stone fireplace to the corner. This building has huge scope for conversion of use to provide annexe facilities (subject to the relevant permissions) thus appealing to buyers wishing to accommodate multiple generations within their next move.
An expansive room of truly enormous proportions! The farmhouse style kitchen offers units to three sides topped with grey work surfaces with a one and a half bowl stainless steel sink inset, finished with a tiled splash back, and room for both a freestanding cooker and a large American style fridge freezer. The room enjoys a good degree of natural light courtesy of the double aspect windows, complimented by a network of suspended spotlights to the ceiling also. Plenty of space is available to accommodate a large family dining table to seat six or more if required. A door to the corner opens to reveal a staircase leading down to two vaulted cellars, both of which have an original stone keeping table.
A large reception room presented in light, neutral tones with an attractive papered feature wall hosting a coal burning effect gas fire set within a marble feature fireplace. This room also benefits from double aspect windows, one of which is particularly notable having a period style wood panelled surround, in addition to deep skirts and an oak door through to the entrance hall. The sitting room flows open plan to the dining room via a large archway.
Another generously proportioned reception room, currently used as a more formal dining room – ideal for dinner parties and larger family gatherings as the space comfortably accommodates a substantial table to seat eight or more guests. A large bay window protrudes to the side elevation, in addition to another full height window to the front with wood panelled detailed surround, offering an attractive view over the garden.
Offering flexibility in its usage, the drawing room has a range of period features including encased beams, an ornate ceiling rose overhead and a marble fireplace with a solid stone hearth. Two doors to the corners open into useful storage cupboards and conceal an old staircase from earlier years, and a set of French doors open out into the courtyard. This room is currently used as a study thus appealing to buyers who may wish to work from home, or would also lend itself well to use as perhaps a playroom, or entertainment/hobby room.
The aforementioned grand staircase rises to a spacious upper landing with doors leading off to two of the largest bedrooms and offering access to two further sub-landings leading to the other three bedrooms.
Master Bedroom & En-Suite
A vast double bedroom offering an abundance of space and light via windows to two elevations, the front of which enjoys far-reaching views toward Emley Moor Mast. The bedroom benefits from a range of fitted furniture including wardrobes, drawers, dressing table and bedside tables, and is presented in a neutral theme. The master is served by its own ensuite fitted with a shower, hand wash basin and W.C. with partially tiled walls, the ensuite also doubles up as a utility room with plumbing and space for both a washing machine and dryer and a traditional creel suspended to the ceiling.
The largest bedroom in size, again having the advantage of high ceilings and a window to either elevation – also offering the aforementioned attractive views. A bank of built in wardrobes span one full side of the room, providing plenty of storage space.
A large ‘L’ shaped spacious double bedroom, boasting a cast iron Victorian fireplace set within the wall and double windows looking out to the rear elevation.
Another large double bedroom, having plenty of light offered via windows to two sides. This bedroom neighbours the house bathroom so there is great potential to create ensuite facilities with minimal disruption if desired (subject to the relevant consents).
The smallest of the five bedrooms, yet still a generous single although it is currently used as an office. This would also lend itself well to use as perhaps a large dressing room for the neighbouring bedroom to create a completely separate wing tucked away from the rest of the upper floor accommodation.
A glazed main entrance door to the side of the property opens into a porch area which in turn leads through a door into a period style entrance hall. With an array of features on display including textured plasterwork to the walls, ornate ceiling rose and an impressive grand staircase rising to the upper floor. Beneath the staircase is a useful wash closet recently updated with a modern white and chrome W.C. and hand wash basin, and finished with tasteful grey tiling to the walls and floor – also having a cupboard for storage.
Externally the property boasts a fully enclosed courtyard, reached from the kitchen it lends itself perfectly for the security of children and pets. A blank canvas waiting to personalise, the hard standing is ideal for the recreational use of small bikes. A convenient outside WC is reached from this area. The attractive courtyard would be ideal for summer BBQ's and small family gatherings. The added bonus is the expanse of laid to lawn located to the front of the property. With established trees and shrubs, located in the close knit hamlet setting for exclusive private use of 54 Wellhouse Lane, this garden would easily accommodate a marquee for family celebrations. To the side of the lawned area, the property includes parking for several cars.
Fitted with a bath, separate large shower cubicle, hand wash basin and W.C., with built in shelf alcove and a built in storage cupboard to the corner. Whilst perfectly useable as it is, some buyers may wish to undertake a modest refurb to update the bathroom.
