Dumfries House, Denshaw For Sale

Postcode: OL3 5SH
Property Type: Detached
Bedrooms: 5
Price: £450,000

This double fronted stone property in Denshaw has living accommodation by means of a three bedroom house and a two bedroom separate first floor apartment. The house could be enjoyed in its current layout as a three bed family home with the separate apartment used as a holiday let, separate office space or as a rental property with a monthly income. Alternatively the vendors have informed us that it would be straight-forward to rejoin these two spaces, subject to the correct consents.
The property is of considerable size, and has been cleverly split to create separate annexed living which has been rented out for many years.
The main house briefly comprises an entrance hallway and a side hallway, a bright dual aspect lounge, a kitchen and a fantastic double length sitting and dining room. Also to the ground floor is a bright sun room with countryside views, and a generous double bedroom with an en suite shower room. Stairs then lead to the first floor where there are two further double bedrooms and a family bathroom. There is access from the sitting room into a tandem double garage and store room, and to the rear of the house is a covered patio seating space with beautiful views.
The apartment has a separate entrance from Ripponden Road and has a generous garage, with steps then leading up to a first floor apartment with a lounge, kitchen, bathroom and two bedrooms.
Externally, the property has an enclosed lawn garden to the front with seating areas and flower beds.
There is further scope to extend the house into the currently unused loft space above the sitting / dining room which is of a considerable size and could easily accommodate further bedrooms and bathrooms.
The property is located in the popular Saddleworth village of Denshaw, offering easy access to the M62 motorway network ideal for commuters to Leeds and Manchester. The house is adjacent to open fields and boasts uninterrupted views from the sun room and covered patio.
This is a beautiful family property and viewing is a must to appreciate the size of accommodation available.
