In a tucked away location in a semi-rural setting, The Grey House sits nestled in spacious gardens in a property designed to appreciate its surrounding. Providing 5 bedrooms and spacious reception rooms, the house is approached via its own private driveway. Recently renovated and vastly improved, the property is an assured family home.
The Grey House is a unique property set in idyllic surroundings which has been vastly improved and reconfigured by the current owner. Offering spacious gardens that include a double garage and timber shed, there is plenty of scope to significantly double the size of the garage or even install an additional workshop to the rear.
Internally, the improvements to the property have produced a light filled arena with spacious dining kitchen, balcony to the large sitting room that enjoys sliding doors to the exterior and four bedrooms to the lower ground floor and a further double/king bedroom to the ground floor. With a separate utility room and cloakroom, the property further boasts 3 bathrooms, 2 of which are ensuite. Provisions have also been made to include a study and with considerable space both internally and externally, there is no question this all provides an ideal family home.
Close to the local amenities of Almondbury village which includes boutique shops, cafés, bars, hairdressers and beauty shops, to mentions but a few, the village also includes a reputable doctors surgery, dentists and King James's School. Close to Castle Hill, Almondbury is perfectly placed to reach the popular tourist town of Holmfirth and is only 3 miles from Huddersfield Town Centre and is positioned on great transport links.
KEY FEATURES The Grey House is a very individual home, far from ordinary and quite exclusive with its surroundings and layout. With considered detail, the property has been renovated to a high standard, ensuring that the exterior is always visible from the main reception rooms.
The dining kitchen is very impressive in scale, with a vast range of Oxford green cabinets, complimented with Apollo Quartz work surfaces in astro black. Integrated appliances include a Zanussi hob, microwave, double oven and grill, Neue dishwasher, fridge and freezer and separate wine cooler installed in the large central island. Underfloor heating runs throughout the property, especially warm and toasty underfoot on the tongue and groove engineered oak flooring that flows throughout the ground floor rooms. Double doors lead out to the flagged patio, perfect when entertaining and al fresco dining.
The sitting room is particularly decadent in space and includes a wood burning stove. The chosen neutral colour scheme only further enhances the proportions of the room as the eye is pulled towards the gardens which have unobstructed views through the glass panelled balcony. Ensuring the every changing colour scheme of the landscape becomes part of the décor, the homeowners cleverly thought to keep stripped back simplicity to the internal presentation. The glass balcony has created a wonderful extension to the home to ensure that nature and calming ambience could be thoroughly enjoyed in this enviable location.
Another clever consideration is storage! To be found in abundance throughout the property, bespoke shelves and cabinets, as well as exterior out buildings offer considerable space for a growing family.
The ground floor is completed with a bedroom with ensuite facilities, large open hallway with cloakroom facilities, office and utility room which is also a great station for family dogs to dry off after enjoying the many country walks in the region.
The lower ground floor provides the property with a further 4 double/kings bedrooms, one with ensuite facilities and a stylish house bathroom with extra large bath tub, step in double shower and oversized wash basin with a water closet located further down the hallway.
Externally, the gardens are a notable key feature which offer great beauty and charm to the property. Incredibly spacious and offering more boundaries then one might first consider, there is great potential to create a separate access to the property with additional parking from the neighboring lane. The double garage is in addition to the ample parking spaces available beyond the driveway and further room is available to build another large outbuilding, creating a great workshop / games room / office space. Enhanced with trees and established foliage, the property has two lawns that offer family friendly stations for children to play and nature can be enjoyed with a regular variety of birds and squirrels that visit daily.
