Situated in a quiet courtyard in the shadow of Denby Dale viaduct is this charming two-bedroom period cottage with a contemporary interior.
The home of Tom Mountford and Kathryn Powles, it is situated in Bank Lane, just a few minutes’ walk from the centre of Denby Dale.
The couple, who have lived at Jasmine Cottage for more than two years, are now moving within West Yorkshire to be closer to family.
During their time at the property, the couple have created a warm and welcoming cottage home, which still has many original features such as original floorboards, wooden beams and curved walls.
Laid out over three floors, this property is much bigger inside than it appears from the outside, with generously sized rooms.
An entrance hallway on the ground-floor leads into a large dining kitchen, which is the hub of the home.
With plenty of room for a six-seater table, the kitchen has a range cooker, a Belfast style sink and a range of units.
Leading off the kitchen is a utility area and large pantry, ideal for storage and for laundry. This dining kitchen, which has original beams, is ideal for entertaining.
Moving on to the first-floor, the house has a spacious landing with a large window overlooking the viaduct
On this floor is a large cosy lounge with original beams and wood burning stove. This room has views of Denby Dale over the fields and is perfect for relaxing in the evening.
Also on this floor is the house bathroom, which has a contemporary feel and bath with shower over.
On the second-floor are the two bedrooms, which are both generous doubles and enjoy the same view over fields.
The master bedroom has wide exposed floorboards and has plenty of space for freestanding wardrobes or built-in if a new owner would prefer.
The second currently has a dual use and is currently set up as an office, while still having room for a double bed. Again this has stripped floorboards.
One notable feature of this property is the curved walls, which is a feature of the period and guaranteed to be a talking point. It also benefits from a cottage style garden.
Tom said: “We have lovely views over fields and what is known locally as the ‘village green’. Although we are on the edge of Denby Dale, the footpath does give quick walking access into the village.’’
