Do you need access to local schools, the hospital, Halifax, or the M62 motorway? And do you love the character features of these old, prestigious houses? This semi-detached family home is situated to what many would describe as a convenient location, and it's very much sought after as a result.

Inside, there's a wealth of character, with stained glass windows and traditional ceiling covings, and the decorative spindled staircases are a real feature. Rooms are a great size, in keeping with prestigious homes of the period, and there are plenty of them, too. There's some development potential, here, too, with good cellar rooms, a box room which supplements the five bedrooms, and a good sized utility with a large cloaks cupboard next door. If you're looking for a good family home then this must surely be on your viewing list. Give us a call and come and see for yourself why we love this house.

The real feature here is the patterned door and screen with carved woodwork and stained glass windows which are a real feature of the period.
A lovely, spacious hallway with a door to the side driveway and a beautiful carved balustraded staircase leading to the first floor and extending to the second. We have a deep traditional ceiling coving and a delph rack. A large cloakroom cupboard offers a useful storage facility but could easily provide access straight through to the utility room.
LOUNGE :14′ 4″ x 14′ 0″ (4.37m x 4.27m)
With a large square bay window with beautiful stained glass panels. The focal point of the room is a large polished wooden fireplace with hearth which houses an electric fire and there are shelves and cabinets fitted beside the chimney breast. The deep traditional ceiling coving is complemented by a delph rack and a ceiling rose around the light fitting, ornately carved and decorated in keeping with the period.
FAMILY DINING KITCHEN :17′ 2″ x 11′ 2″ (5.24m x 3.41m)
A fabulous family kitchen which is extensively fitted with base and wall units with matching drawers and complementing work surfaces to tiled surrounds, incorporating a one and a half bowl sink unit with mixer tap.
UTILITY ROOM :8′ 1″ x 7′ 9″ (2.46m x 2.35m)
With a range of base and wall units to tiled surrounds.
With a two piece suite consisting of a low level WC and a wash basin to part tiled walls and with a useful towel and linen cupboard.
There are three useful cellars off a hallway in the basement. The room at the rear is a good workshop which has a door and window onto the rear garden, and there are two further storage rooms/workshop areas. Some would certainly create extra living accommodation down here and it will be interesting to see what you would like to do with this area.
FIRST FLOOR LANDING
A galleried landing from a turning staircase with a window looking out to the side. There is a useful linen cupboard and traditional ceiling coving.
BEDROOM ONE :14′ 1″ x 13′ 5″ (4.28m x 4.1m)
A large double room to the front with deep ceiling coving and a wash stand.

BEDROOM THREE :9′ 7″ x 7′ 10″ (2.92m x 2.38m)
A good sized third bedroom which would make a fabulous Home Office, again with a traditional ceiling coving.
A good sized bathroom at the rear of the house, above the utility room and below the box room on the upper floor. Fittings consist of of a bath, a shower enclosure and a wash basin to part tiled walls, and with a useful towel cupboard.
With a low level suite and part tiled walls. The bathroom and this separate WC are off a small archway, with the linen cupboard, and some on the street have combined the rooms to form one large bathroom. Would you do that, or create an en-suite for the rear bedroom? Or perhaps you like to keep them as they are...

Another galleried landing, with a window on the half landing.
BEDROOM FOUR :13′ 10″ x 11′ 9″ (4.22m x 3.59m)

BOX ROOM :8′ 4″ x 7′ 2″ (2.53m x 2.19m)
A useful space which some have converted to a second floor bathroom. It's right above the bathroom on the first floor. Add a window and you could create a sixth bedroom or a home office here, too...
A shared driveway runs to the side of the property, providing parking space for one car towards the top.
