Tucked away down a private lane behind a secure gated entrance is Woodlands, a magnificent period residence which is set in 9 acres of its own land and has a stunning detached, 2 bedroom cottage in its grounds in addition to a vast Barn with stables which offers tremendous development potential. With an oversize double garage and an abundance of parking provision the house and outbuildings extend in total to approx. 6021 square feet.
The main house is a extraordinary blend of contemporary open plan living with a period barn conversion style interior which will not disappoint. The main living and dining area is on the first floor and is the finest available on the open market in the region which is enhanced by the dramatic mezzanine snug/study area above and the cavernous inglenook fireplace complete imposing dog and grate in addition to the French doors opening onto the gin terrace overlooking the garden. Having a most impressive kitchen with granite worksurfaces and Miele integrated appliances which offers open plan aspect to the living area, the main house has four double bedrooms with the opulent master suite having that 5 star manor house quality.
An historic building in its own right this detached stone cottage is a complete 2 bedroom home with an impossibly beautiful interior and character that is Yorkshire at its best. Having its own garden area and separate parking it allows dependant relatives to live independently and privately on the door step or as a fabulous location to house visiting business contacts or even utilise as a holiday let to generate income.
As shown on our floor plan, this vast building of solid stone and brick construction currently is utilised for high end spacious stables as well as workshop with living area. It offers so much scope, subject to planning to develop into a separate residence for dependant relatives as a superior bungalow or to resell creating a separate private driveway entrance from Carr Lane, which could also serve the Cottage and offer this to the open market too. Both would command a high end values. Alternately, the Barn could also be adapted into business use for a number of trades or holiday cottages or kept as it is lovingly used at present.
