Situated in a stunning canal-side location with far reaching views over the fields beyond, this deceptively spacious three double bedroom property has all the quirks and character of a traditional stone cottage yet boasts a surprisingly generous interior. Dating back to 1690, this Grade II listed property has been carefully converted from three cottages into a unique and versatile residence. With a superb open plan first floor living area with high ceiling and exposed beams, bright and contemporary dining kitchen, double bedroom to the ground floor, two further double bedrooms to the lower ground floor with the second having been two separate bedrooms previously, an impressive basement area/games room with utility space opening out into a fabulous landscaped rear garden alongside the canal and the added feature of a gated driveway for off street parking. A real must-see for the discerning purchaser looking for something a little bit special as only internal inspection will do this property justice and allow full appreciation of the scope on offer.
Comprising in brief, to the ground floor; entrance hallway with parquet flooring and guest WC, snug/bedroom three which is a lovely versatile room with exposed beams, currently in use as a home office and dining kitchen with an ample range of cream shaker style fitted units to base and wall level, gas range cooker, integrated fridge, freezer and dishwasher, wood effect tiled flooring, two sink areas and looking out onto those amazing views to the rear.
To the first floor is an impressive open plan living space with attractive high ceiling having exposed beams, velux roof lights and a triple aspect bringing in plenty of light and a focal point is created by the wonderful exposed stone chimney breast.
There are two further double bedrooms to the lower ground floor, the master with a balcony making the most of the views and the second bedroom having windows out to two elevations and we understand has previously been divided into two separate bedrooms. The house bathroom is also on this level with four-piece white suite incorporating both a bath and a corner shower enclosure. To the basement level, the two vaulted cellars provide excellent storage and the large room to the rear is currently a games room with utility space and again offering versatility and further potential. The smart rear garden has a low maintenance astroturf lawn and stylish wooden/glass balustrade to allow full appreciation of the view beyond.
The pleasant 'village' of Rodley sits aside the Leeds-Liverpool Canal and offers the commuter easy access to Leeds City Centre and the Leeds Outer Ring Road but retains a more rural feel. The canal welcomes the walker to scenic towpath strolls towards both Leeds and Bradford through areas of countryside and farmland. There are local shops and Public Houses in Rodley and neighbouring Farsley and Pudsey provide further facilities. The Owlcotes Shopping Centre, which is a short drive away along the Ring Road, boasts both Asda and Marks & Spencer superstores.
