Property description

ABOUT MILLSIDE BANK A rare opportunity to purchase a detached property with such excellent proportions with large gardens and superb views located within easy reach of the centre of Holmfirth. The property is of traditional stone and rendered construction under a pitched slate roof.

Our clients purchased the property during the mid 1990s and have carried out extensive refurbishment works since then. A 3 storey extension was added to the side to create a stunning dining kitchen, principal bedroom and a large home working space beneath the house. We anticipate that buyers may wish to carry out further works to meet their own tastes and demands.

The property is entered through a glazed porch at the side linking the house to the garage. A door from here leads into the spacious hallway. There is a downstairs WC, dining room and lounge with bay window enjoying the views. A further entrance lobby gives access a laundry room / utility and the large L-shaped living / dining kitchen.
