Full description

The Area

Forest Lodge is set high on the edge of a large valley which rolls out across a belt of popular and picturesque countryside and back up towards The Pennines. Situated just outside Outlane, a village to the west of Huddersfield which has a golf course and a selection of places to eat and drink. The countryside to the north has some beautiful villages with rural pubs and a variety of schools.

The sought after area is both beautiful and convenient, with easy access for the M62 motorway to Leeds, Manchester and the central
Huddersfield train station is within 5 miles of this superb home.

Key Features

This great home has been finished to a very high standard with some really impressive finishes.The chic contemporary touches combine with traditional features to create a very stylish, welcoming and homely place to live in the country. The seller of Forrest Lodge owns a high-end shop fitting business which creates bespoke interiors for boutique shops, bars and homes and this quality of manufacture and attention to detail is obvious throughout this great home.

We love the modern oak and glass staircase with under-lit treads which rises from the reception hall, a great place to warm up in front of the stove after a long country walk.There is also a large family sitting room which open into a conservatory, creating a great place for the family to relax and for entertaining. There is a stylish breakfast kitchen, arranged around a central island with a bar, along with a boot room and laundry. A door leads into a health and leisure room and there is a dining room, all three of these rooms could be combined to create a really large live-in kitchen with dining and sitting areas.

We particularly like the master suite, a concealed door within a mirrored wall leads into a really smart fitted dressing room and the en suite also has great bespoke furniture and stylish fixings, all in all, a great place to start and end the day! There are two really smart bedroom suites at the far end of the house, one of which has an entrance hall with dressing space, a bedroom with a sitting area and a cool bathroom. The other three bedrooms are all spacious double which are serviced by the house bathroom.

The long driveway sweeps down to a parking area in front of the large integral garage which has internal windows and doors leading into the health and leisure room, a great place to look at your toys while enjoying a frame of pool and a drink or working out and relaxing in the sauna afterwards. We are told that there is also planning permission in place for a separate triple garage to be built into an embankment within the garden, this could potentially be created as a stable or even a living annexe, subject to consents.

The garden areas are fairly low maintenance and offer a variety of places for the kids to play and to sit out, relax and enjoy the view over a summertime lunch. We believe the grounds extend to around three acres and this includes seperate paddock areas, some of which are sloping but they offer plenty of space for ponies to graze and great potential for those who wish to grow their own.
