A large detached family home with open plan living that can be separated to provide an annex for multi generational living. With 4 bedrooms, 3 to the first floor and a further reception room that is easily identifiable as a bedroom, this versatile home has spacious gardens and a detached garage.
Greystones is an impressive building encompassing much of the signature aesthetics of the Art Deco period from which it dates. With minimum financial outlay and subject to relevant consents, the first floor could be further extended adding to the three double bedrooms and nursery that are already available. Internally the decorative presentation flows throughout with simple elegance contrasted with the decadent detail of the romantic 1930's period. Offered with a private driveway, detached garage and generous gardens, the property is well located for both commuters, being a short drive from M62 access, and for families - with a range of local amenities and highly regarded schooling, including the renowned Heckmondwike Grammar School less than a mile away.
Entrance Hall & Cloakroom The original entrance door with stained glass insert, opens into the spacious entrance hall which is well-presented in neutral tones with polished wooden flooring underfoot and an art deco inspired paneled staircase rising to the first floor. The entrance hall narrows to a hallway running to the side entrance door which has a separate entrance vestibule with a useful under stairs cloak storage cupboard, in addition to a wash closet fitted with a hand wash basin and W.C. with tiled floor and walls to mid-height, finished with spotlights to the ceiling.
Dining Room A well-proportioned reception room with space to accommodate a table to seat at least six guests thus lending itself well as a reception room to host large family gatherings. With an exposed stone fireplace and display shelving along one side housing a cast iron multi-fuel burner within, and with two stained glass windows to either side. Again having other period features on display such as the aforementioned exposed polished floorboards and decorative cornicing.
Sitting Room The sitting room is situated at the front of the property thus enjoying a good degree of natural light and pleasant outlook over the front garden via the large bay window. This reception room displays characterful features such as the art deco style walnut fireplace with ceramic tiled surround and hearth housing a coal effect gas fire, the feature plasterwork to the ceiling and exposed floorboards.
Dining Kitchen The modern kitchen has been upgraded over recent years and is fitted with a range of both high and low level cream units, including a corner carousel cupboard, topped with complimenting oak work surfaces and integrated appliances including fridge, freezer and dishwasher, with space designated for a substantial Range Cooker (available by separate negotiation). Beneath the window is a one and a half bowl stainless steel sink with contemporary mixer tap over, the property has also managed to retain the original butler bell which is proudly displayed above the door along with the door indicator. Just off the kitchen is a very conveniently placed walk in pantry with tiled shelving and walls to mid-height, ideal for storage.
Living Area Flowing open plan from the dining room is this very light and bright room, with three sets of treble windows all looking out to the rear elevation and a side door providing access to the rear patio. Presented in attractive neutral tones with spotlights inset to the ceiling a great space to entertain.
Snug / Bedroom Currently used as a home office, however this room has a multitude of possible uses including play room, gym, or perhaps as a ground floor double bedroom. The sloped ceiling plays host to twin beams overhead and there is an exposed stone feature wall with the dining room the other side which gives opportunity to perhaps combine the two areas subject to the necessary consents. The snug benefits from separate external access via French doors from the front of the property therefore also presents a good opportunity to create ground floor annexe living accommodation should a buyer desire to accommodate parents or independent children within their move. The room also offers the choice of opening up the internal double doors through to the living area to further extend that open plan space and use as one large area if preferred. The possibilities are endless with this room!
Master Bedroom A particularly generous double room, tastefully decorated in light, neutral tones having the advantage of built in wardrobes across one wall and double elevation windows bathing the room in natural light. There is perhaps potential to use a section of the upper hallway and the adjoining nursery room to create ensuite facilities, subject to the relevant consents.
Bedroom Two Another large double bedroom, also benefitting from built in wardrobes to two sides incorporating a dressing table within. Presented in stylish tones with a papered feature wall and an attractive outlook over the front garden.
Bedroom Three Presented as a single bedroom, however can accommodate a double bed. This bedroom has fresh, neutral dcor and a slim storage cupboard to the corner offering some hanging space.
Nursery This room would be ideal as an infant nursery or study, with room to accommodate a small bed and with shelves and hanging rail to the corner. Alternatively, this could be used as a dressing room or perhaps combined with the Master bedroom to create ensuite facilities (subject to consents).
Bathroom and WC A luxurious bathroom suite with a fabulous free-standing clawed foot bath tub with shower head taps, hand wash basin and a large corner shower cubicle. Finished with travertine tiled floor and matching wall tiles to mid-height, and spotlights inset to the ceiling. As with many properties of this particular era, the W.C. is located in a separate adjoining room yet could easily be combined if a buyer wanted at a later date.
Garage and Garden Workshop The garage is a substantial building in its own right, a generous single with up and over door and a separate side door leading to the garden kitchen complete with a stainless steel sink and drainer, plumbing for a washing machine and space for a dryer and fridge with tiled flooring underfoot. The basement of the garage is currently used as a garden tool shed/workshop.
Outside The grounds in which Greystones sits within are of great appeal to many buyers, wrought iron gates open onto a private gravelled driveway offering parking for at least four cars. The front garden is bordered with mature trees and curved, well-stocked borders with a stone flagged patio area in front of the snug. To the rear is a very private stone flagged patio, then steps lead down to a second patio BBQ area and a large, flat established lawn. Mature trees to the lower boundary screen the garden well and enhance the privacy on offer.
