A most impressive family home standing in extensive, dual level, landscaped grounds in the highly sought-after area of Upper Batley Set well back from the main road The Uplands enjoys a private and discreet position. The property was originally built in the early 1870’s by Joseph Talbot, a wealthy local mill owner and was split some years later to create two substantial dwellings.

The modern kitchen has an extensive range of fitted wall and base units with integrated appliances and a Rangemaster double oven, the separate utility has plumbing for an automatic washing machine.

The front entrance vestibule provides access to both a large inner hallway and the ground floor bathroom having a feature sunken bath.
The first-floor landing has an ornate ceiling window with mood lighting and provides access to three double bedrooms and the family bathroom having a luxury four-piece suite including a double ended free standing bath. There are fitted wardrobes to two of the bedrooms including the generous master having a feature bay window affording views over the extensive grounds.

The property has off-street parking to the front and to the rear the single garage has both light and power fitted.
