Oak House is a beautifully presented family home in a little know location set well back from Barnsley Road in a popular village neighbourhood.
The traditional red brick exterior with pillared balcony and wrought iron gates makes for a stunning introduction to this family home. The high quality arrangement internally continues to impress as you travel throughout this spacious property.
The main entrance is furnished with Karndean flooring that flows throughout the ground floor and is edged with a golden trim. Bespoke round windows are installed to both the front and rear elevations adding characterful details in this handsome property.
The fully fitted kitchen with separate utility room is particularly eye-catching. A combination of textured grey cabinets are harmonised with cream gloss cabinets and offer a fantastic range of integral appliances. Incorporated into the central island is a free standing Rangemaster with gas hob and cylinder extractor fan above and wine cooler. The kitchen further includes NEFF coffee maker, combination microwave oven and steam oven, Liebherr fridge and separate freezer with built in ice maker, engineered granite work surface with two square sinks and instant hot water facility. Ambient lighting offers a cosy glow and the room has ample space for reception seating or formal dining. The utility room has a dual entrance from both the kitchen and the entrance hall and has plumbing for a washing machine. The rear porch with pathway to the exterior is an ideal approach to decloak with muddy boots and muddy paws after enjoying the many network of walkways that surround Flockton.
The sitting room is a well arranged room with great dimensions and enjoys a Stovax cassette stove, recessed spot lighting, internet provisions and French doors that alight into the garden. The property is in fact designed to connect the garden to the property through 3 sets of French doors which given the south facing elevation is a fabulous architectural consideration to the positioning of this home.
The ground floor is completed with a contemporary cloakroom offering a combination unit with marble top, throughout the continuity of ensuite and bathroom provisions are continually high-specification.
The first floor has the gorgeous master suite, equipped with step out balcony and further Juliette balcony. The owners reconfigured the layout to create this opulent space so that they may enjoy the views and luxury of the size. Established with a walk in wardrobe and present-day bathroom with fabulous contrast between dark furniture and white suite, the remaining space is dressed with a king size bed and lovely seating area arranged to appreciate the views. This particular aspect would make for a lovely nursery, close to the main bedroom. The layout is such that it can become two separate bedrooms once more, both with their own private door.
The first floor also enjoys another large ensuite bedroom with walk in wardrobe, built in shoe cabinet, shower ensuite with combination unit with black sparkle marble, karndene flooring and a Juliette balcony.
The second floor will take you to the three remaining bedrooms, two of which have ensuite facilities and the third makes for an ideal home office or playroom. Every ensuite bedroom is dressed to perfection, providing fabulous fitted furniture for storage space.
From end to end you are suitably impressed by the quality of the furnishings which guarantee a property that is ready to move into with all the hard work having been done already.
Externally the front face garden is south facing and provides assured private seating areas and a lawn for children and pets. A large driveway sits before the double detached garage which has an electric door and side pedestrian entrance. The garage is installed with a dog shower which is a wonderful accessory for those who know just how muddy paws can get!
Oak House enjoys all the amenities that Flockton has to offer but also benefits from the positioning close to Grange Lane allowing for swift access to commuter routes avoiding the village if so desired. Flockton is a well regarded village that provides all required needs for a family but is also located close to many main attractions that includes the National Coal Mining Museum, Yorkshire Sculpture Park and Cannon Hall Farm recently covered by 'Springtime on the Farm'.
EXTERIOR Oak House is settled in a little known access point at the end of a shared entrance with only one other property.
The south facing elevation guarantees a property bathed in sunshine which is wonderful for families to enjoy those BBQ's and family gatherings on great weather days!
The garden which is settled to the front of the property has been equipped with both a decked and separate flagged patio so that you have two lovely designated spaces for garden furniture.
The large detached garage easily fits two vehicles so that cars can be removed from the driveway providing even more space for children to play.
The location assures much privacy for the family and the sides of the property offer extra positions for floral adornment and storage. A pathway runs to the rear porch of the property which is a great entrance to decloak and remove footwear.
The double garage enjoys an electric opening and pedestrian side door and is fitted with south facing solar panelling which we understand may provide a yearly income of £1,200 a year.
