Property description

Tenure: Freehold

Situated in the heart of the village of Sandal, this eye-catching Victorian residence is a charming and grand family home offering a high level of privacy and lots of rich character.
There is plenty to admire and much more potential still to be unlocked by the new owners.

Built in 1896 with authentic local stone from the nearby Sandal Castle, this fine property offers ultimate curb appeal. From the roadside, you’ll be intrigued by the palatial exterior, complete with multiple chimney breasts and an impressive tower with a first-floor balcony built above the entrance.
The whole plot is rich in history and grandeur, and we’re certain that you won’t want to miss the opportunity to acquire such a charismatic home.

The characterful quirks include the beautiful stained glass in the turret and the intricate stone detailing of the structure will definitely take more than the first visit to appreciate in full.
The wide, open staircase and high ceilings are perfect for hanging a showcase chandelier.
Although many of the rooms have been tastefully upgraded over the last 37 years by the current owners, the vast majority of the original fixtures remain.

Drive through the wrought-iron double gates along the cobbled drive towards the rear of the property, where you’ll find a vast open space for parking, ahead of the detached double garage. With a garden as vibrant and beautiful as this one, it’s easy to see why the current homeowners spend so much of their time relaxing here. In summer months, it’s wonderful to swing the doors open and extend out onto the large Yorkshire stone patio for al fresco dining and enjoy an element of outdoor living.

Perfectly situated on the edge of the city of Wakefield, this home is bursting with nearby attractions to explore both on foot and within a short drive. Fasten your walking boots and head to the historic medieval Sandal Castle - the scene of one of William Shakespeare’s plays - where there is plenty to explore and views overlooking the River Calder.
Continue a little further and you’ll find yourself at Pugneys Country Park which boasts 250 acres of beautiful Yorkshire outside space.
