This is a lovely Georgian period country house set around two sides of a courtyard with a pretty double fronted separate cottage fronting the drive.
The main house offers a wealth of characterful family accommodation which has been sympathetically maintained and improved over many years to create this quite charming home.
Slate and stone flagged floors, exposed beams and vaulted ceilings to many first floor rooms, along with open fires and panelled doors create a delightful ambiance. With three staircases the accommodation is very flexible and a number of rooms could be utilised as needs dictate.
The pretty double fronted cottage offer separate three bedroomed accommodation which has been successfully let for a number of years but which could equally well be integrated into the main house if required or used for dependent or extended family.
The gardens are outstanding and extend in all to about 4.6 acres including sweeping lawns, a lawn tennis court, orchard and bluebell woodland as well as an extensive gravel parking area for numerous cars. There are far reaching views over rolling countryside to the Pennines, especially from the balcony off the cottage bedroom.
This is a lovely rambling family house which will appeal to those who enjoy being in the countryside, prefer not to be isolated and are looking for plenty of accommodation for family and guests or would appreciate letting income from the cottage.
From the courtyard the front door opens into the fine reception hall with stone floors and a wide main staircase leading up to the galleried landing. A panelled door leads out to the gardens to the rear and to the large family kitchen to the left. This too is stone flagged and has an Aga and cooking area opening to the dining/sitting area. To the rear of the kitchen are a boot room and a cloakroom with w.c., a door to the garden and a connecting door to the main hall.
To the rear right of the hall is an inner hall area with an open fireplace and the second staircase leading up to a second landing area. A door off leads to the boiler room and a second cloakroom with a w.c.
Off this inner hall are a sitting room and family room, both with French doors to the courtyard, one of which could be utilised as a ground floor bedroom if required.
From the kitchen a door leads through to the formal dining room with a dual aspect and stone flagged floors. A door leads off to the guest entrance hall, with double doors to the courtyard and a rear entrance hall area with a staircase leading up to two double bedrooms and a house bathroom with a separate shower. On the ground floor there is a library/study and the main drawing room with double doors off the hall and double French doors to the courtyard.
Off the main galleried landing, which has plenty of space for a study area, is the master bedroom with an en-suite shower room. To the far side of the landing there are three further double bedrooms served by a second house bathroom. This landing is also accessed by the third staircase.
The cottage is double fronted with a porch opening into the hall and a staircase leading up to the first floor. To the right is a sitting room and to the left of the hall is a second sitting room or dining room with an opening through to the dining kitchen. A utility room lies off with a garden door and a w.c. off. On the first floor there are three good sized bedrooms and a bathroom with a separate w.c.
