This Victorian period mid terrace property, built in the 1880's, is set over four floors and brings a wealth of opportunities with it. Upstairs is no. 9 and downstairs no. 9A. Like I said two for the price of one ! The lower ground floor has its own separate entrance doors, front and rear and would make ideal independent living accommodation, a workshop or business premises. Importantly there's no onward chain...
Some modernisation is required but without too much work or expense it can once again become a fantastic family home. Period features include, high ceilings, ornate coving and ceiling roses and of course the very spacious rooms. The property also benefits from: UPVC double glazed windows, central heating and burglar alarm.
On the ground floor is a very grand entrance hall with stairs leading up to the first floor and down to the lower ground floor. The stairs to downstairs are currently blocked off but can easily be re-instated. There's a lovely, large and bright lounge with full length bay windows overlooking the garden and Scatcherd Park. At the rear is an even larger kitchen diner/family room with access to the rear.
On the first floor are two super sized double bedrooms, a smaller double and the house bathroom. Stairs lead from the landing to the attic room which has a roof light window to the rear and dormer windows to the front. Some work is required in the attic but it could potentially provide two further bedrooms.
The lower ground floor has its own entrance door to the front, hallway and a large front room similar in size to the upstairs lounge. There is also a large living-kitchen with access to the rear and a further two storage spaces one of which houses the original stone slab cold shelf. Conversion of this to a bathroom would make the downstairs a complete independent living space.
Outside at the front is a pretty enclosed garden giving access to the private road which is Gladstone Terrace and in front of that the beautiful Scatcherd Park. At the rear of the house is a large driveway for at least two cars.
The shops and amenities of Morley are just a short walk away and there you will find a wide range of shops, banks, a Post Office, several supermarkets and the indoor market. There are also plenty of restaurants, bars and eating places without having to travel to nearby Leeds or Wakefield.
Excellent links to the region's motorway networks with the M62 being a short drive away. Buses from Morley will take you to Leeds, Bradford and Wakefield and Morley Railway station is just over half a mile walk.
Morley has several primary schools two of which St Francis Catholic and Morley Victoria are just a short walk away. Older children are catered for at The Morley Academy and Bruntcliffe Academy both of which are within easy walking distance.
