Your own little piece of history, A medieval, grade II listed, threshing barn boasting one of the best views in scholes and scope to develop further.
Situated on the only street in England named Scholes Village is this quaint two bedroom detached stone cottage, steeped in history, dating back to the early 16th Century. Located in the picturesque linear village of Scholes, which is home to a fine country pub and cricket pitch, close to an array of amenities, surrounded by reputable schools and minutes away from Junction 35 of the M1 allowing easy access to Sheffield, Doncaster and Leeds. The property boasts many characterful features such as the quirky timber framing, exposed stone walling, stone slat eaves, slit vents, pigeon holes, charming window seats, bell switches, stone flooring and a collared rafter roof in the barn. The Yorkshire Vernacular Building Study Group recently named the property in the top 5 buildings in Rotherham.
Not only perfect for commuters amongst us, the property is a gardeners and wildlife lovers paradise, boasting an enchanting, well stocked tiered garden with spectacular views of the Wentworth Woodhouse estate and beyond. This sizeable detached property has enormous potential to be developed into an impressive larger detached home, not only within the building/barn itself, but off road parking (at present inside the barn and outside the barn) such as a drive or garage may also possible at the bottom of the garden with access over the private right of way down the side of the property.
