This is the home you have been waiting for! An idyllic stone cottage dating back to the 1700’s, the Old School House, a truly unique and wonderful home bursting with character set in a prime Horsforth location with countryside views. Enter through the garden gate and you a greeted by a postcard style cottage showcasing stunning stonework set amongst a restful garden – kerb appeal at its finest!
The entrance porch is a welcomed addition, not only to enhance the façade but to provide a useful space upon which to enter through and in to the hallway which leads to the split level living room and dining room. The living room houses a splendid fireplace and leads through an opening, down steps, in to the sitting room. Both rooms exude period charm with stonework, beams and cottage features, providing peaceful and spacious areas in which to enjoy. The snug room, which can also be used a third bedroom is entered via the sitting room.
The dining area is open plan to the kitchen, having a traditional countryside feel, beams and archway, and much like the rest of the property is impeccably well maintained and presented. The garden room is a wonderful place to relax in, especially as you can enjoy the views of, and have access to the well-kept and mature gardens. There is also a downstairs w.c. And integral garage with electric door that complete the ground floor accommodation.
Upstairs the Master bedroom steals the show, being full length and having dual aspect windows, plenty of natural lights floods in and on to the stunning central beam which immediately draws the eye upon entry. The countryside views on offer through the front window make it feel like you are in miles from anywhere, in a deep rural location, not only 1 mile from Horsforth’s vibrant Town Street area. There is a second double bedroom enjoying pleasant views of the gardens and the spacious bathroom has a four-piece suite.
Outside the private gardens are well stocked and immaculately presented, there is a patio area leading on to the vast lawn which is surrounded by flower and shrub beds, as well as fruit trees and hedged borders – the tranquillity of the gardens are something the current vendors will certainly miss! There is a driveway at the rear that leads to the garage providing off-street parking.
A home like this is extremely rare to market and won’t be around for long. Don’t miss out, call us today to book your viewing before it’s too late!Porch
