Well....life is full of surprises...I can't stop thinking about this house! I just love it. I have driven up and down Half Mile Lane for many years and never even noticed this house! What a hidden gem. I can see why the original (mill owner?) built it just here. Originally with an acre of garden, it has commanding views over the valley opposite and away to the right, as far as Beamsley. I've seen lots of photos of the differing types of vistas and the sunsets/sunrises are really impressive.
Set in nice gardens and having parking for several cars and twin garaging too, it has so much to offer...
This is a house that is still packed with many beautiful and typically characteristic features of a stone-built Victorian house...mouth-wateringly so... Examples are...the high ceilings, skirtings, architraves, cornices, ceiling roses, the return staircase, build quality, and the fireplace, to name a few.

Starting from the front of the house, standing in the garden, there is a superb stone staircase that takes you up and into the reception hall which still has a rather nice pattern tiled floor. To the left, as you walk in, there is an elegant bay-windowed living room that has a multi-fuel-burning stove and great views. Not wishing to be outdone, there is a sizeable dining room (with a nice fireplace) an office/study, kitchen, and guest cloakroom. The return staircase has been restored to its' former glory and is a great feature that opens on the first-floor landing. Here, you will find 3 double bedrooms, 1 of which has an en-suite and the house bathroom.

There is also great potential to convert the basement if required. Here you will find 2 large cellars with stone flagged floors and ceilings that are approximately 2.60 metres high. Subject to regulations etc., that may be required, this provides excellent potential to extend the accommodation.
Outside there are gardens to front and rear, 2 garages and parking for 3 cars. Did I mention the views?

Located twixt Rodley and Farsley; so you get to have the best of both. At the valley bottom, I believe Farsley Beck marks the start of the Farsley district. Being on the border of Rodley and Farsley, the house is within walking distance to Valley View & Summerfield primary schools as well as Leeds West Academy. Located close to the centre of Rodley there are lovely walks along the Leeds-Liverpool Canal and access to the nature reserve. The village of Farsley can also be reached within a short walk and offers a host of further facilities (more of that later) The A6120 and A647 are both on hand and provide major links to the motorway networks. Just a short distance away is the popular Owlcotes Centre at Pudsey offering a Marks & Spencer store, Asda superstore, and there is a train station adjacent. In addition, the bus services are frequent from Coal Hill Lane, getting you into Leeds & Bradford City centres. The neighbouring villages of Pudsey and Horsforth are only a short distance away and also offer a comprehensive range of facilities, including a train station. Oh, don't forget access to Leeds & Bradford International Airport as well....a 15-minute car/taxi drive away...great for getting away on holiday.

At Farsley ... What a thriving community and very much continuing to be on the up! There is a wide array, such as fabulous restaurants, cafes, pubs, bars, butchers, greengrocers, post office, barbershops, hairdressers, jewellers, beauty salons, fashion boutiques, diy, and homewares stores. There is a doctors' surgery, dentists, pharmacy and opticians. Farsley has it all! With a further range of shopping opportunities at the Owlcotes shopping centre with Asda, B&M, M&S, and the Market Town of Pudsey just up the road. Farsley is well known as a creative hub, with Sunny Bank Mills on the doorstep and local galleries. There are live entertainment venues, street food vendors, a micro brewery pub, a woodfire pizza bar, and delis. Great transport links to Leeds, Bradford and further afield: Train station, bus connectivity, cycle highways, motorway connections. Blessed with open spaces nearby: The green belt between Farsley and Calverley is great for walking.

So there you have it; a hidden gem ... A double-fronted Victorian semi-detached house, tucked away off a private road, which retains many characteristic features. Set within beautiful gardens, with views to die for. Yes, it does require some T.L.C. But what a gem and such a great opportunity to own a house that you can put your own personality and expression into! But don't take my word for it...book yourself an appointment, and I will see you there at the open viewing.
