Remodelled and extensively updated by the current owners, Hill Side Farm offers a rare opportunity to acquire a generously proportioned residence offering a delightful combination of modern fixtures and fittings and olde-worlde charm. Beamed ceilings to many of the rooms and a stone floor to the barn have been retained to keep much of its original character. On the ground floor there are three reception rooms, one currently used as a games room and one as a dining room with stairs leading to the first floor. A separate utility room with full height cupboards has plumbing for an automatic washing machine, sink and a stable door leading to the courtyard. The large farmhouse style kitchen has been finished to a very high standard and is complete with a solid fuel burner.

To the first floor are four bedrooms, three being doubles, the master having en-suite facilities with shower cubicle. The house bathroom comprises low flush WC, wash basin and bath with shower over.

Externally the large courtyard and driveway provides a generous parking area for a good number of vehicles. The attached sixty-foot- long barn, currently used as a garage, is complete with a workshop and a woodstore and offers obvious potential for the extension of the main house or possibly the creation of separate dwellings, subject to relevant consents. The lawned gardens to the front and side are surrounded by dry-stone walls and a separate patio area makes an ideal area for barbecues and entertaining.

This property is offered for sale through agents Dacre, Son & Hartley’s newest office on 34 Queen Street, Morley. Call 0113 322 6333 or visit www.dacres.co.uk.
