A stunning and substantial executive barn residence of bespoke design and high calibre - a new build approximately 2.5 years ago, on the footprint of the former 200 year old field barn, completed to exacting standards and the developer's own meticulous requirements. Following a characterful style complimented by a carefully integrated contemporary living amenity, absolute privacy and high level security is self evident here, the property, a registered smallholding, set within imaginatively landscaped surrounding grounds with fenced paddock, extending to in excess of 2 acres in all and flanked by delightful rural aspects.
Attention to detail and carefully sourced materials have created an outstanding home and definitive family amenity both internally and externally, served by main and secondary service (roadway standard) driveways each accessed through two sets of automatic gates. Sweeping to converge at a double matching garage, the drives afford ample additional resident and visitor parking and readily accommodate access for larger vehicles for those with equestrian interests. The house grounds are essentially lawned with random planting of ornamental trees and an expansive Yorkshire stone walled patio extending across the entire rear of the house, is ideal for al fresco dining and social entertaining having a lawn and neatly planted backdrop. A generous grass paddock, enclosed from the main drive by wrought iron estate fencing and having double matching access gates, includes a substantial field shelter and weather proof pet kennel creating a fine facility for family ponies and a variety of outdoor pursuits.
Finished in mellow hand-made brickwork and incorporating Bauer precision engineered windows in Irish oak finish, the residence benefits from high levels of natural light and has been completed by the owners without thought of re-sale, with a quality of build admired by many in the field. Just some features of note include gas fired 'underfloor heating, high calibre permanent flooring in schoolhouse oak finish, oak internal timbers all French polished to create minimum maintenance, CAT5 future-proof electronics for 4K viewing and Sonos 'top-range' surround sound system with recessed acoustic speakers to main rooms and externally to the patio, CCTV and high performance security system. This together with versatile accommodation, finished throughout in natural colours complimenting internal finishes, and including welcoming reception/dining hall with stunning part vaulted ceiling and contemporary staircase, delightful lounge with traditional fireplace and log burning stove, study, 28 ft kitchen diner with family area and spacious utility room with ground floor WC. To the first floor a viewing gallery/landing includes a sitting area commanding panoramic views, 'designer' ensuite facilities to the principal and guest bedrooms, two further double bedrooms and further house bathroom.
Positioned within half a mile of junction 30 M62, just off the A642 Leeds/Wakefield Road, this is an ideal commuter base, virtually at the 'crossroads' of the country (just one junction to connect M1) ideal for the busy business executive. With railway stations, private schooling and hospital within swift access in Wakefield, local facilities nearby in Oulton and Woodlesford together with sports centre, golf course and state schooling, there is convenient reach to Leeds city and surrounding West Yorkshire townships.
