The farmhouse dining kitchen has an eye catching AGA in postbox red that has been upgraded, on mains gas, the AGA effectively warms the kitchen as well as cooks delicious meals! The character of the property has been lovingly maintained ensuring a captivating home with mullion windows and beamed architecture. Added to this, extremely well managed gardens that includes an orchard, vegetable patch, paddock, flagged patio and sweeping driveway, this idyllic country home is perfect for families.
LOCATION The wonderment of rural Briestfield is the location which is assured of charming surroundings but in no time at all, Huddersfield centre can be reached in 8 miles and Wakefield Train Station in about 12 miles. Wakefield Westgate served by LNER includes car parking, café and cash machines and has regular journeys to travel to London Kings Cross, Edinburgh Waverley, Leeds and York to mention but a few. More locally, the Shoulder of Mutton is a popular independent family run pub with a great choice of real ales, wines and spirits and the local amenities in Grange Moor are in comfortable reach of Gardeners House.
KEY FEATURES Recently redecorated and fitted with a new gas boiler, tank and radiators, the property has a large sitting room and separate dining room with distinctive stone flagged floor and newly installed Stanord 33 multi fuel stove. The postbox red Aga is delightfully prominent, working well against the soft shades of the kitchen cabinets and the utility room is a well received extension with easy access to the garden for those household laundry duties. A new shower room and large master ensuite are well received and in keeping with the overall aesthetics of this very quaint and attractive property with mullion windows and beamed architecture. We have been advised the roof is fully insulated and that both bathrooms are fitted with underfloor heating. The property has been supplied with all new doors to the garden in contemporary shades. Gardeners House has permitted development plans valid until March 2020 for a single storey extension and double garage.
