Extended and remodelled to an exceptionally high standard providing a south facing terrace in addition to a roof terrace accessed from the master suite, this 3 bedroom detached family home appreciates countryside views, driveway for several vehicles, garaging and spacious gardens.
Rarely does a property come to the market that assuredly offers the potential to collect the keys and move straight in. Extended and remodelled rendering the property unrecognisable from its original self, the homeowners have created an enviable family home that resides beautifully in Briestfield with its privileged scenery. Approached via a sweeping driveway with electricity installed to the main entrance allowing for the potential to install automated gates, the property stands majestic in the countryside with fabulous kerb-side appeal. With a single integral garage to the front elevation, the property further includes an under dwelling termed affectionately as the "man cave" that offers further storage and a covered laundry zone is adopted beneath the balcony to assist with drying clothes for those inclement days. The family home has 3 generous bedrooms, one being the master suite with dressing area and sumptuous Burlington shower room with wash basin and toilet. As you wander around the property, you find yourself enthralled with the considered attention to detail that has not just created a desirable house but also a charming family home.
Thornhill is a coveted location given the close proximity to required amenities but also enjoying many rural pastimes including rambling, horse riding and dog walking. Serviced by two junior schools and the Thornhill Community Academy for secondary education, the area is aided perfectly by public transport. Thornhill is situated on a hill on the south side of the River Calder and the Calder and Hebble Navigation. Thornhill encompasses the areas of Thornhill Edge, Overthorpe and Fox Royd overlooking the valleys of the Howroyd Beck and Smithy Brook
GROUND FLOOR Stepping in to this property, you realise immediately the quality of the remodel as a bespoke half turn staircase leads to the first floor. Walking onto a white stone floor the property passes to the sitting room on the right and the kitchen to the left. The consideration to natural light and enjoyment of the views is apparent as you enjoy the many windows and glazing throughout. The sitting room feels very comfortable with plush carpeting and using elegant lines in architecture, the eye is drawn to the simplistic but stylish fireplace. With generous space for family seating, the room has a large bay window and great dimensions for ample furniture. Across the hallway, the kitchen is open plan with the family room and dining area but with purpose built elevation it adopts its own zone also allowing this large area to provide social interaction for all the family. You can easily visualise yourself at times of celebrations with all family and friends enjoying the space and on hot summer days, the 3 sets of double doors open and alight onto the balcony, further increasing this already voluminous area. The crisp white décor works in harmony with the wooden cabinets contrasted with sage green cabinets all finished with Macintosh styled handles. The AGA range oven has a gas hob and electric oven so ease and speed of use is assured, recessed with white gloss tiling and oven mantle, the aesthetics is most pleasing and functional. The kitchen further includes a granite work surface, square sink with mixer tap and integrated dishwasher. Further space is provided for a wine cooler and the homeowners retained an original larder. Leading away from the kitchen, the property enjoys the benefit of a utility room that supports an integrated washing machine and dryer with practical units, sink and roll top work surface. The area leads to the garage and external side door which is perfect for laundry duties and encompasses the ground floor cloakroom with Burlington two piece suite. The family room is impressive not only in stylish presentation but also in space and lighting. Three sets of double doors exit out onto the balcony and allow for plentiful natural light to stream through but also draw your eye to the breathtaking scenery. The dimensions allow for a versatile layout and with underfloor heating under the stone white flooring, this room is ideal whatever the weather.
FIRST FLOOR The half turn carpeted staircase with bespoke solid wood balustrades leads past the landing window with views over the roof terrace. Alighting on to the first floor you are presented with three bedrooms and the house bathroom which like the remainder of the house has exquisite presentation. The two smaller bedrooms both comfortably support double beds and one includes fitted furniture, both with plentiful scope for free standing furnishings. The master suite is particularly enchanting, the gem of the home with assured views and a roof terrace to step out on to, the space available is quite superior. With a dressing area creating plenty of clothing storage the suite also includes a high class shower room with Burlington traditional set and step into glass shower enclosure. The first floor also includes a grand bathroom suite, again all Burlington with footed roll top bath tub and separate shower enclosure and with an original exterior wall retained to add character, the room is beautifully presented.
EXTERIOR In spacious gardens, the property has been afforded the same renovation as the interior producing well maintained gardens that include a tarmacadam driveway and lawns to both the front and rear of the property. The south facing elevation has been capitalised on with the provision of a roof terrace and a balcony with purpose built BBQ. This exterior of the property takes full advantage of the setting and ensure the gardens are practical for all the family. Beneath the balcony is a "man cave" for storage and realising the potential to utilise all aspects, a laundry area is covered for those poor weather days. The garage has wooden doors in keeping with the aesthetics of the property and leads into the property externally. Electricity has been taken to the entrance of the driveway so if the installation of electric gates is desired, the possibility is easily realised.
