Description

A very rare opportunity presents itself for the discerning buyer to acquire what is certainly one of the most prestigious houses in the Wortley area. This stone built period property retains many original features throughout, with high ceilings, offering two very generously proportioned reception rooms, separated by an imposing central hallway with original mahogany spindled balustrade to the turned staircase. A major feature of this hall is the beautiful tall leaded stained glass window to the rear. The property has a large bespoke kitchen as well as useful storage cellars. To the first floor is a larger than average single bedroom, together with two very substantial double bedrooms, en-suite to master bedroom, and house bathroom. The property benefits from double glazing, gas central heating, larger than average double garage, block paved driveway with parking for four cars, extensive mature gardens with lawns, established trees and shrubs, patio and further seating areas. The property enjoys a southerly elevation and an internal inspection is absolutely essential.
