Full description

An exceptional opportunity to purchase this outstanding four bedroom, Grade II listed, stone detached building believed to date back to 1637 and constructed by John Saville who's reputed to have been equerry to Elizabeth I. This delightful property was used as the local village school until 1881, and has recently been sympathetically restored by the present owners to provide a stunning home ideal for the young professional or the growing family alike. The property would also suit itself to offices, or indeed a restaurant or other varieties of commercial use subject to planning permissions, none of which have been sought or applied for.
This characterful property offers outstanding period features including exposed beams, exposed stone walling, stone mullion leaded light windows, oak doors and extensive oak panelling. The versatile accommodation briefly comprises; Reception hall, guest w.c., splendid lounge through to an extensive dining kitchen with a large open fire, utility room, gardeners w.c., elegant drawing room, first floor landing, master bedroom with en-suite bathroom, guest suite with en-suite bathroom, two further bedroom and house bathroom. The gardens are fully enclosed by period stone walling, and there is a large cobbled driveway leading to a double garage and courtyard to the rear.
Methley is a sought after location having its own amenities, although the nearby facilities of Rothwell, Castleford and Pontefract are within easy vehicular access, as are national motorway network links such as the A1M and M62. Methley also has vehicular access to the vibrant City centre of Leeds. We would highly recommend internal viewing on this outstanding period property.
