A WARM WELCOME
Welcome to Burnhill House, an impressive Georgian home with a versatile annexe, officially named The Granary.
This substantial four-bedroom property is a dream home in waiting and welcomes you with open arms. From the stunning grounds surrounding it to the family breakfast kitchen gently warmed by the AGA, this property is ready to make beautiful memories that will last a lifetime.
The electric double gates to the gravelled driveway open to allow for extensive vehicle parking and access to the double garage, before crossing the patio area through the conifer archway to the property’s main entrance. A split double door reveals the reception hallway bathed in light from a large picture window on the staircase. The eye is drawn right through to the conservatory at the rear.
WORK FROM HOME IN STYLE
Immediately to the right is the study. A great space to work from, with a window that overlooks the patio area. The proximity of this room to the kitchen means you are never far away from fresh coffee as often as you need it.
DINNER PARTY HEAVEN
The dining room has a formal feel with high ceilings and ornate cornicing. It is fabulous for hosting dinner parties; light a roaring fire and enjoy this entertaining space with two large dual aspect windows to take in the stunning outlooks.
RELAX AND UNWIND
Directly across the hall is the lounge. Mirroring the dining room with a grand open fireplace, this room is much less formal, although the Georgian property features are still very much present. Modern yet cosy soft furnishings create a place to unwind and decompress from your day. Again, this room has a dual aspect and enjoys the morning sun.
THE HEART OF THE HOME
The home’s main focal point is the breakfast kitchen, where the entire family congregates spending most of their time. This is a busy kitchen for the designated chef to rustle up all manner of dishes, from mid-week family meals to gourmet dinner parties.
The soft blue of the wooden kitchen units, coupled with the rich royal blue AGA, sets the mood for this room. A central island topped by ‘butcher block’ style worktops is great for gathering around, as well as additional granite topped workspace. The early rays can be felt as the sun rises, and you’ll enjoy listening to morning birdsong with the sash windows thrown open.
BRINGING THE OUTSIDE IN
A utility room houses the washing machine and tumble dryer, keeping the noisy, whole spin of a washing cycle away from your family catchups over coffee in the kitchen. In addition to this there is a useful cloakroom with hand wash basin and high level cistern w/c.
At the rear of the property, the conservatory enjoys the sun almost all day, and it is a wonderful place to sit and enjoy the garden views when it’s just a little too chilly to sit outside. Just imagine opening the doors and letting the spring breeze fill the home as the weather warms.
As the end of the day approaches, climb the turned staircase, past the feature picture window, and capture a final glance across Went Valley towards Wentbridge twinkling in the distance. From the landing, the principal bedroom sits at the front of the property, enjoys a dual-aspect view, and has a private en-suite shower room. Modern mirrored wardrobes ensure that there is plenty of storage too.
ROOM FOR EVERYONE
Across the landing are three further double bedrooms. Those at either end of the property also enjoy a dual aspect with varying views across the gardens and beyond. There is a second en-suite bedroom and a family bathroom with a bath and a separate shower. A lovely modern feel recreates a relaxing bathroom to rival a 5-star hotel, an excellent way to wind down in the Hydrobath with bubbles after a long day.
Externally, the mature and landscaped gardens wrap around the property. Fully enclosed and private, there is somewhere to sit and enjoy regardless of where the sun is in the sky, and a fantastic covered outdoor dining space allows Al Fresco dining, whatever the weather. Decorated with festoon lighting and a grapevine that snakes along the roof, this area gives the property a Mediterranean feel that has hosted many outdoor parties over the years.
The studio and gym area are a surprising addition, a great space to enjoy keeping fit and exploring hobbies in peace. There is even a workshop area, separate from the garage, for tinkering away on those long weekend afternoons.
Perhaps one of the most versatile elements of this property is The Granary.
An entirely self-contained annexe with two bedrooms, this could be a fabulous place for older relatives to live, close enough to feel supported but still keeping their independence, as offices to run a business from or perhaps generate a rental income which the current vendors have previously done (current rental return approximately £15,600 per annum.)
There is a lounge, dining room and kitchen with access to the utility room and downstairs w/c on the ground floor, with two large bedrooms and a four-piece house bathroom on the first floor. The landing is spacious and makes a lovely study area or library.
AREA TO EXPLORE
Location is vital for any property; it doesn’t get much better than at Burnhill House.
Positioned in the sleepy, yet community-focused village of East Hardwick you really are in for a picturesque way of life with a dreamy countryside style of living surrounding you. Your grounds border sweeping fields to give you so much peace and quiet you’ll be able to float away into your own little world.
Despite this idyllic setup, you are still situated within a few miles of links to major motorways such as the A1 to the East and M62 to the North. As a result, this private home gives you all the perks that come from remote living while still boasting great transport links for an easy commute or school run.
Within East Hardwick itself, you have a village hall and St Stephens Church as well as a number of easy trails to pick up and walk into the neighboring villages of Darrington, Ackworth, Thorpe Audlin and Wentbridge. Each of these offers a local pub to pick up a well-earned glass of wine after you’ve enjoyed some fresh air and got in your steps for the day.
The nearby town of Pontefract is within close distance. Here you will be greeted with an eclectic mix of shops, restaurants, supermarkets and attractions. If you’re looking for family days out, the 18th century manor house Nostell Priory is close by and the scenic area of Brockadale Nature Reserve is right on your doorstep too. The ever popular Xscape and Junction 32 can be found just a short drive away. Here you’ll find high end outlet shopping, real snow skiing/snowboarding slopes, cinema, climbing wall, E-Karting, bowling and much more!
