Built on the site of a former doctor’s surgery, this modern detached house at Shepley certainly has the feelgood factor.
The home of Grahame Turner, Snowden House at Field Head, is one of a pair of natural stone detached properties built on land vacated by the local doctor’s surgery when it relocated elsewhere in the village.
Built in 2012, the house is a fine example of modern quality build and has all the advantages a homeowner would expect from a large detached new home: five bedrooms, several en-suite bathrooms and spacious, light, airy, rooms.
Grahame, who is now looking to relocate to fit in with his Northern-based worklife, said: “The property was finished to a very high standard and the quality of workmanship is really good with solid oak flooring, a solid oak staircase, contemporary bathroom fittings and quality internal doors.’’
This house is on three levels with arched windows om the top-floor providing character, along with a small bay window over the single-garage door.
Downstairs the house is very spacious with a good sized entrance hall, a large kitchen breakfast room with contemporary units, downlighters and plenty of storage. This room looks over the rear garden and links through to a pleasant sun room. Also on this level is a utility room, downstairs cloakroom, formal dining room and large lounge with a stone fireplace.
Three bedrooms are on the first-floor, including a large master bedroom with dressing room and en-suite with curved bath.
All five bedrooms had their own en-suite bathrooms when the house was first built but Grahame has changed two of these – one into a storage area and the other into a dressing room.
He said: “I felt as if we didn’t really need five en-suite bathrooms so I changed two of these on the first-floor to create more storage options.’’
On the upper floor, two further bedrooms, still with en-suites, make this house ideal for a family or for someone who has regular visitors.
Grahame said: “The arched windows on the upper floor are a real feature of the house.
“The house is ideally located for walking into Shepley village but is very private and quiet with fully enclosed gardens and dry stone walls and fences all the way round.’’
Outside at the front the property has an electric gated entrance, is bordered by dry stone walls, has a blockpaved driveway with room to park a number of cars, rockery and lawned garden with shrub borders.
The rear garden is laid to lawn with a planted rockery and an Indian stone flagged patio area.
This is a stunning modern home, ideal for a growing family, and close to local shops and amenities, local schools and open countryside. The M1 motorway is a short distance away, via Denby Dale, and Shepley village has its own railway station on the Huddersfield to Sheffield line, which is ideal for commuters to major city centres.
