It’s here that you’ll enter the home via one of three exterior doors on this side – each giving its own warm welcome. Before exploring the sizeable ground floor, you’ll already have noticed the potential to divide this vast property into two separate living quarters – allowing different family dynamics or business opportunities to thrive.
Set back furthest from the road and enjoying views of the garden is the newest part of the home which was added in the mid-2000s. The ground floor comprising of a large lounge and a sizeable dining kitchen featuring a Range cooker and built-in appliances. Both rooms lead out to the garden through French doors. You’ll find your own hot tub hideaway room tucked in the corner of the house – guaranteeing a luxury lifestyle awaits.
Above this on the first floor, is a modern four-piece family bathroom plus three double bedrooms – one of which comes complete with an en-suite.
To complete the main home, on the second floor, you’ll find the master suite offering ultimate privacy up its own flight of stairs. The quirky shape and dormer windows ensure character continues throughout.
This room also boasts an en-suite shower room with ‘Jack and Jill’ wash basins plus a full length wardrobe/storage cupboard.
HOME FROM HOME
In the original wing connected by a single-story sunroom is the floorplan of a potentially separate three-bedroom cottage of its own. Upon entering the lounge with its open staircase, you’ll notice original farmhouse features including solid wooden floors and oak internal doors. On the ground floor is also a modest-sized kitchen and separate dining room, plus a downstairs W/C to finish.
The first floor offers two double bedrooms, a spacious dressing room which could be used as a bedroom if required and a traditional family bathroom complete with decorative panelling and a roll-top tub.
The exterior space is equally impressive as the far-reaching rear garden spans 350 metres and takes you on a calming journey all the way down from a large wooden decking area right to the edge of the flowing River Went at the bottom. With views across open fields and into the sister village of Kirk Smeaton, this authentic semi-rural lifestyle is easy to sign up for.
You’ll be situated in idyllic surroundings with the peaceful patter of Brockadale Woods on your doorstep. The community-orientated villagers come together daily when enjoying a cold, crisp pint in the in the highly rated village pub, dropping off the children at the quaint village primary school and when stocking up on essentials supplies at the small post office and convenient local store, all in the neighbouring village of Kirk Smeaton. The nearby villages of Wentbridge and Darrington as well as the market town of Pontefract ensure a broader range of amenities are easily on hand too. The combination of this property’s size, charming location and endless potential really does make it one of a kind.
