Highfield House is a stunning 3 bedroom detached period property located in approximately 1 acre of land, appreciating an elevated position with a long sweeping driveway. With so much potential to reconfigure and refurbish, the property also includes the opportunity to gain planning permission for further dwellings.
Highfield House offers a rare opportunity to purchase a property with significant views, land and opportunity to extend, improve and develop.
A much beloved family home that has been extended to provide 3 bedrooms, 3 reception rooms, kitchen, study (wired for broadband) and double integral garage. The property further includes another detached double garage and additional stable block, workshop, greenhouse and potting shed.
Though planning permission has never been applied for, the previous occupants have explored converting the detached garage and acquiring the orchard as part of their own private garden, a viewing better explores the potential. Again another suggestion, all subject to usual constraints is to procure a building plot directly taken from Hartshead Lane into the grounds to the right of the driveway. Then we have the adorable stable block with pebbled driveway and slate roof that provides great annexe potential.
All suggested changes will never impact on the most impressive of views that are best appreciated from the first floor landing and front facing bedrooms.
Fringed by countryside with local amenities close to hand, the property has Hartshead junior and infant school within close walking distance to the property. Attractions include Dewsbury Country Park, Ponderosa Zoo and the ever popular Whiteley's Garden Centre. The property has the added benefit of Birstall Retail and Entertainment Park being located less than a few miles away, and a choice of gastro-pubs including the famous Old Mill Pub within a 7 minute radius. Close to motorway networks accessing the M62 and M1, and easily accessible to Leeds, Huddersfield and Wakefield within 10 miles in a car. Both Huddersfield and Dewsbury are served with train stations that offer fabulous commuter links.
KEY FEATURES The property is well presented throughout and is offered to the market with no upward chain.
Both the dining room and the sitting room have generous dimensions taking large furniture. Away from the sitting room is access to a cellar with wooden steps. We have been informed that this is vastly dry and offers large storage space in which standing is possible.

All 3 first floor bedrooms are well proportioned with 2 king size bedrooms and a generous single with fitted furniture.

The plot size is estimated to be around one acre and includes a small orchard, out buildings, vast lawn, allotment, lighted tarmacadam driveway and secret ornate garden.

The adjoining outbuildings, the detached single garage and stable block, offer scope to convert to a variety of uses, subject to planning.
All suggestions regards planning have not been formerly investigated and are purely ideas on what may take place.
