Full description

Originally probably one of the finest Victorian houses to be built in Barnsley. Standing in extensive grounds close to Locke Park it has three reception rooms, kitchen, utility room, conservatory and cloakroom. On the first floor there are five bedrooms one with en-suite together with a house bathroom. The attic has a further three bedrooms together with two excellent sized box rooms. Full range of cellars.

General Description - This superb Victorian house was originally constructed in 1876 and at the time must have been one of the finest residences within the Barnsley borough. Facing the south-west, it stands within extensive grounds thought to extend to almost an acre and has retained many original features whilst having been extensively modernised over the course of time. The accommodation comprises reception hall with return staircase leading to the first floor, two spacious bay fronted reception rooms to the front and double aspect study to the rear. The walnut lined drawing room was apparently inspired when one of the previous owners went on the maiden voyage of the R.M.S. Queen Mary in 1936 and it is still in superb condition. Also on the ground floor there is a kitchen, utility room, cloakroom and a small rear conservatory. The first floor provides five bedrooms, the master having a large en-suite bathroom. House bathroom and linen store. A second staircase then provides access to the second floor/attic where there are three further bedrooms, a shower room and two spacious box rooms, the largest of which could possibly be converted a further bedroom if required. The property also has a full suite of cellars one of which was probably the original scullery and another that is currently used as a garage.
