Full description

Standing in a superb elevated position commanding fine long distance views across the valley, this superior semi-detached period home provides particularly spacious five bedroomed accommodation including the great advantage of mature landscaped grounds whilst also having previously been granted planning permission to build a detached two storey home on a good sized level portion of the lower gardens.

Built in an era famed for attention to detail and enjoying many interesting original features, this substantial family sized home provides generous accommodation planned over four floors comprising very briefly:

An imposing reception hall, a sitting room with stone mullioned bay window, a living/dining room with magnificent stone fireplace, a spacious dining kitchen, a rear entrance porch, a utility room, a ground floor bathroom, a large cellar with excellent head height, a galleried landing with large feature window, four well planned first floor bedrooms together with a house bathroom and a good sized attic bedroom. Externally a shared access leads up to a private sweeping driveway extending to the side and rear whilst at the rear a large car port provides undercover parking. There is a large level lawn to the front of the property (previously having planning permission to build a detached house) surrounded by mature trees providing a good degree of privacy and seclusion. Immediately adjoining the front of the property is a level patio area enjoying long distance views whilst at the rear beyond the car port there are two useful out-buildings which then lead up through a rockery to a further hard-standing/parking area adjoining Bar House Lane.

Planning permission was previously granted to build a detached three storey three bedroom home on the lower portion of the garden, therefore perhaps representing an exciting opportunity for a builder/developer subject to re-securing any necessary approval. The planning reference with Bradford Planning is 08/06209/FUL and further information can be found at:

https://planning.bradford.gov.uk/online-applications/applicationDetails.do?activeTab=summary&keyVal=K8F0VHDH0BY00

Although the permission has now lapsed, there is potential to re-new/re-submit the application for a similar scheme, or perhaps indeed an alternative application for a detached garage, bungalow or other ancillary accommodation to serve the main property. Further information/plans available on request.
