You can be king of the castle in this stunning period property. The five-bedroom detached home, which dates from 1820, is filled with tons of charming Georgian-style details – from it's original oak panelling to the ornately carved ceilings throughout.

If the grand property isn't enough to tempt you in itself (although really, why wouldn't it be), the home sits within 1.5 acres of grounds, which include a tennis court and boast breath-taking views across the Colne Valley.

As you enter, you'll immediately be drawn into its warm, light and airy ambiance. Despite its considerable size, the property still has a cosy, homely, welcoming feel. It's ready to move into and offers superbly presented and flexible living accommodation, which has been lovingly restored over the past 30 years by its current owners. It has a wealth of period features and offers great scope to adapt as the cellars and attic are ripe for conversion.

In addition to its spacious reception rooms, the property includes a conservatory overlooking the gorgeous grounds. And there's even plenty of additional storage space in the cellars on the lower ground floor.

Upstairs, you'll find good good-sized bedrooms as well as the master room, which comes with an en-suite. With so much space, the property is perfect for a growing family.

Lingards Wood, in Marsden, is nearby to a good selection of well-regarded primary and secondary schools. It's also the perfect location for commuters since it's just roughly eight miles from the centre of Huddersfield, 11 miles from Oldham, 18 miles from Manchester and 27 miles from Leeds.
