General Information

Offering an increasingly rare opportunity in the village of Norwood Green, Norlyn is a deceptively spacious 3 bedroomed detached true bungalow that provides prospective purchasers the ability to create an individual property designed around their specific needs and design. Occupying a private position close to the village green the property benefits from a large paved parking area to the front, across from which is a generous mature garden.

The accommodation requires internal modernisation and updating, however, offers the chance for purchasers to re-configure the existing layout with the possibility, subject to obtaining the necessary planning consents, to create an adjoining garage/conservatory or extension of the living accommodation on the area currently gravelled and utilised as additional parking.

Internally the accommodation briefly comprises; large l-shaped entrance hall having timber framed glazed entrance door to the front elevation, cloaks cupboard and fitted airing cupboards with built in shelving along with cupboard housing the hot water immersion cylinder and warm air central heating unit. Accessed from the main entrance hall the master bedroom enjoys a dual aspect to the front and side elevations and benefits from having fitted wardrobes and an en-suite shower room with double walk-in shower with splashback panelling, pedestal wash hand basin with tiled splashbacks and low flush WC along with uPVC window to the side elevation.

The second bedroom is positioned to the front of the property, with uPVC window to the front elevation, overlooking the garden and also has fitted wardrobes. The third bedroom is positioned to the rear having uPVC window to the rear elevation and internal horizontal window through into the hallway. The house bathroom has a three piece suite comprising; low flush WC, pedestal wash hand basin and panelled bath with tiled walls along with uPVC obscure window to the rear elevation.
Also accessed from the main hallway the kitchen has a range of laminate units with contrasting timber effect laminated worksurfaces having an inset stainless steel sink unit with tiled splashbacks, gas hob, integral cooker and uPVC window to the rear elevation. Leading from the kitchen and with separate access from the main hallway is a generous dual aspect l-shaped dining/sitting room having wall mounted gas fire, uPVC windows to the front and rear elevations, glazed double doors leading through to the main lounge and access through to the utility room.

The very generous utility room is positioned to the rear corner of the property and offers a flexible space that could be utilised for a number of alternative uses, currently having a fitted base cupboard with stainless steel sink unit and overlying cupboard along with uPVC window to the side elevation. Completing the accommodation the main lounge is a light and airy room having large feature uPVC window to the front elevation enjoying an open outlook over the front garden and having additional windows to the side elevation, decorative ceiling covings and feature decorative fireplace.


Approached from Rookes View vehicular access leads into a substantial paved parking area that could also be utilised as a terrace providing an elevated aspect over the front garden. To the side of the property an additional pebbled parking area provides the opportunity to extend the existing accommodation subject to obtaining relevant planning approval and leads around to the rear of the property where a flagged pathway runs the length of the rear and opposite end of Norlyn and has mature shrub and hedge boarders. To the opposite side of the driveway/parking area a raised flagged terrace provides a pleasant seating area and currently has a timber garden shed. The large lawned garden is a real feature of this home, providing a generous and private outside area with substantial lawn having established central beds with flowerbeds and mature shrubs. A hedged border and well stocked flower beds run around the perimeter of the lawn.


From Halifax Town Centre proceed along the A58 Godley Road towards Stump Cross. Upon reaching the traffic lights at Stump Cross stay in the right hand lane and continue along the A58 Halifax Road towards Hipperholme proceeding through the traffic lights and continuing along the A58 Leeds Road. After proceeding along the A58 for approximately 1 mile turn left into Rookes Lane, continue to the top of Rookes Lane and at the t-Junction turn left into Prospect Place and after passing the row of cottages on the left turn left into Wells Terrace. Continue around the rear of the cottages and turn right into Rookes View, continue straight forward and this leads you into the driveway of Norlyn.
