Residing in 3/4 of an acre approx. set well back from Bradford Road with a dual entrance secured gated driveway, Stoneleigh is an extended 4/5 bedroom large family home with a spectacular south facing garden overlooked by a balcony exiting from the elevated garden room. With garage and carport, the property is perfect for commuters looking for that forever home in an ideal location to reach motorway links.
Stoneleigh is a large family home that has been extended to provide a wealth of internal space. Retaining original features including stained glass windows, lincrusta embellishment, marble fire surround and hearth, an interior rich design often indicative of the Georgian era. Our home approximately built in the roaring 20's is a rich tapestry of space, opulence and grandeur. A fabulous blank canvas to build upon for a new family, set back from Bradford Road with ample parking and a dual entrance driveway behind secured gated entrance, the family home includes 4/5 bedrooms, garden room extension with balcony, 2 reception rooms, study, breakfast kitchen, house bathroom, garage and covered car port with electric shutters either side. Sitting within 3/4 approx. of an acre, the gardens have been stupendously maintained and will offer a green fingered enthusiast a wealth of possibilities to redesign and landscape to their families needs and requirements.
The nearby Low Moor train station gives the community essential commuter routes, even travelling to London. Stone Leigh gets to enjoy the Countryside viewpoint, especially with the popular close-at-hand Bierley Woods, far reaching views and then Oakenshaw Village providing well regarded amenities, but within little time, you can be travelling to work, airports or day trips out. With no upward chain and a wealth of internal space, this large detached family home is maintained to a good standard and is waiting for a family to enjoy all the stunning aspects that it has to offer.
GROUND FLOOR The grand entrance hall with handsome staircase is indicative of the opulence of the rooms throughout the property. The classical architecture is a nice welcome into this wonderfully bright and airy home that includes a ground floor cloakroom with wash basin with pedestal and low level w.c.
The sitting room though carpeted we have been informed has a solid wooden Maple floor underneath. With lincrusta ceiling and Georgian inspired plaster coving, the muted colours to the wall enhance the room dimensions that is further lighted by the large arched window to the front elevation and side window. A marble fireplace with recessed gas fire lays central to the room that includes a pendant ceiling light.
The dining room almost mirrors the sitting room in size and glazing which externally creates a highly attractive façade.
The breakfast kitchen with relatively new BOSCH oven and grill further includes a BOSCH 4 ring gas hob with canopy extractor fan, fridge and space for a washing machine and dishwasher Solid wooden cabinets with display units are arranged to the wall and base of the kitchen offering substantial storage and a matching breakfast table bringing the family together sits to the opposite end of the room. A door leads out beneath the covered carport which means shopping can be bought into the house unhindered by the weather!
The first floor is completed with the provisions of a study, a great space to utilise to the desires of the homeowners.
FIRST FLOOR Walking up the half turn staircase to the spacious landing, natural day light is drawn though the large art deco window.
Both front bedrooms again mirror the ground floor with symmetry offering very large super king bedrooms, one with fitted furniture that includes a vanity section and the other with free standing furniture and extra side window.
A further bedroom that overlooks the garden to the rear again is sizeable able to support a king/double bed and has free standing furniture.
The fourth bedroom is accessible through a dressing room though the bedroom is additionally accessed from the hallway which forms part of the garden room extension.
The house bathroom with 4 piece ceramic suite includes a very large corner bath with seat, wash basin with pedestal, low level w.c. and bidet. The step in shower with smoked glass door includes a mixer shower.
The garden room with unobstructed views across the garden has been used as a games room in the past and does lend itself perfectly for versatile uses. Accessing onto the balcony with wrought iron balustrading, the views from this vantage point are delightful and demonstrate the full extent of the plot.
EXTERIOR Approaching though wrought iron bespoke personalised gates onto a dual aspect driveway, the front elevation includes two sectional lawn areas and a range of trees and bushes hiding the property from the roadside which offers substantial privacy to Stone Leigh.
The driveway to the side continues up towards the car port and garage behind. The garage and car port sides appreciate electric roller shutters which is an added bonus for security but also produces a covered walkway to the garage from the kitchen. The owners keep extra white goods in the garage which also enjoys shelving and lighting.
The gardens to the rear are incredibly large with access from the front lawn to the back which is peppered with snow drops.
A shed underneath the balcony is a great garden store and a well maintained greenhouse is certain to be appreciated. Fundamentally the garden is a blank canvas with stone walkways and high hedging which has created a great arena for children and pets to enjoy.

This is further added by the convenient motorway access comfortably reached within 5 minutes from the property.
