Property Description

Dating back to the late 1800’s and steeped in local history, The Hollies is a prime example of a beautiful Victorian period property. Retaining many of the original features yet benefitting from a modern influence present in both the kitchen and stylish bathroom, the house offers extensive living accommodation with the option of up to six reception rooms including gym and cinema room, and six double bedrooms, three of which are situated in the old servants quarters on the top floor along with a shower room which would benefit from a scheme of modernisation to complete, to suit a buyers individual requirements. This property would be suited to a family looking for a spacious home with flexibility in the layout, or equally would lend itself well to use as a B&B (subject to the relevant permissions). Externally the property is sat within extensive gardens to all four sides, backing onto open woodland at the rear, in addition to currently having a single garage accessible from the road yet also benefitting from planning permission granted to create a double garage with off road parking. Approximate distances from: Huddersfield 2 miles, Wakefield 15 miles, Leeds 20 miles, Manchester 27 miles, Sheffield 29 miles.

Both staircases are accessed off the hallway, to the first floor and to the lower ground floor, whilst a second point of external access is available via the arched front door if preferred.

Drawing Room
Presented in a Victorian theme true to the properties origins, the drawing room is particularly impressive with a large sash window facing out toward the front elevation of the property providing views across the valley and flooding the room with natural light, with a second sash window situated to the corner of the room looking into the orangery. The focal point of this reception room is the open cast iron fireplace with decorative tiled side panelling and an elegant carved wood surround.

Dining Room
A further well-proportioned reception room with ornate cornicing and a beautiful original ceiling rose of intricate design in addition to other characterful features such as the deep skirts, fireplace with tiled panelling and tiled hearth, and exposed polished floorboards. Twin sash windows provide a pleasant woodland outlook toward the rear garden and a windowed door leads up into the orangery.

Garden Room

Having a T.V. point located in the chimney alcove with built in book shelving to either side. This would also make a great home office space for those wishing to work from home or alternatively could be a 6th bedroom if required.

Utility and W.C

This room could alternatively be used as a playroom or teenagers lounge if preferred.
