This could be the perfect family home.  If you are in the market for a large period house in extensive grounds, that also boasts annexed accommodation, and a large straw bale garden room, then this rural property in the hills above Holmfirth is where you might belong.

From time to time a house comes to the market that offers everything a large family needs.  Space, character and practicality, coupled with generous gardens and a prime location.

In a rural setting above Holmfirth, but just out of Wooldale which has a lovely local pub, village store and schooling for children of all ages, Whinney Bank House offers accommodation suited to larger families and professionals.

In an accessible hamlet together with a handful of older properties and local small holdings and farms, the setting is excellent for those who enjoy the outdoors, with local walks and scenery on the doorstep.

The main house comprises up to 6 bedrooms if required, with two lovely attic rooms on the top floor providing bedrooms 5 & 6 as well as an en-suite.

On the first floor, the master bedroom is light and spacious and has an en-suite shower room which has a beautiful bay window with views across the local fields.

With three other bedrooms (two large doubles (beds 2 & 3) and a box (bedroom 4)) and a stylish bathroom including a wonderful copper bath and separate shower on the first floor, most families will be catered for.

The ground floor feels warm and welcoming with a traditional layout for a house of this age and style.  A formal reception hall connects through to a rear hall which has a turned staircase rising to the first floor and stairs beneath leading to the wine cellars.

There are three large formal reception rooms (Drawing Room, Dining Room and Sitting Room), together with a beautiful Kitchen, the centre piece of which is the all important Aga.  In addition, there is a useful utility room with a first floor study above. 

A cobbled and tarmac driveway leads to the large garage and side entrance which offers access to the two storey annexe that sits over the garage.  One could imagine a relative living here or for it to be used as an excellent work from home space for a variety of professions.

The gardens are a delight, and they are not just gardens.  They are a place for children to roam safely and for garden enthusiasts to while away the hours.

Attached to the front of the house is a newly renovated conservatory and porch.  Somewhere light and quiet to get away from the hustle and bustle of the household.  There is a useful garden shed too, but the real gem is the straw bale detached garden room, which is presently used as a games and party room by our clients.  It is something very few homes enjoy and is a fabulous place to leave one's children to their own devices.

The gardens are extensive as depicted in our images and please reference the title plan for the boundaries.  Our clients own a field to the rear which is on separate ownership and they may be prepared to rent that back to a suitable buyer for an annual fee to be agreed outside of the conveyance.

The essentials:  The property is in a greenbelt location.  The house is Freehold.  Mains services are available.  Council Tax Band is G.
