Property description

Tenure: Freehold

If you’re looking for a house with an historical tale to tell, look no further than this delightful character property.

Originally built in 1829 and used as boarding rooms for the girls who attended Ackworth Quaker School, the building was divided into two semi-detached dwellings over a century ago. This helped to create a charming four-bedroom family home which has retained many of its original features.

With no less than three reception rooms, which include a lounge, dining room and snug, there’s scope to enjoy the space on the ground floor to suit the evolving demands of a large household.

Although the master bedroom décor still features period style picture rails and characterful door handles, there’s the addition of an en suite shower room and walk-in wardrobe tucked away behind oak panelled doors. Aside from the master, each one of the remaining three bedrooms upstairs boast enough space for more than a double bed.

Deceptively spacious and in keeping with its heritage throughout, you’ll also find it difficult not to notice the incredible field views surrounding this property.

The garden features a vegetable plot and mature trees, including an impressive Korean pine which conceals the shed, along with a manageable sized lawn. The current owners have enjoyed countless parties and BBQs here and have made the most of the spacious patio with unrivalled landscapes.

Although the property is just a stones throw away from a private boarding school, there are also a further three primary schools within walking distance. 
Ackworth has all the conveniences of a small town including a public library, doctor’s surgery and chemist, supermarket and convenience stores, multiple pubs serving restaurant food and a tea room above the gift card shop.

The location has a wide appeal for those seeking rural countryside surroundings, but also for families that need to be placed closer to larger towns and cities.
