For a modern property, Carmel House at Netherthong is deceptively spacious with gardens on all four sides.
The three-storey house, which rises via a series of half-levels, is situated off Dean Brook Road and within a few minutes’ walking distance of the centre of Netherthong.
Current owner Joanna Martin, is currently refurbishing an older property, just along the road, together with her partner Steve Gale.
She said: “We really wanted to stay in Netherthong as it is such a lovely village with a great community feel, a good local shop and post office, good local school and a walking route to Holmfirth High School for local students. There’s a great local pub and recently opened cafe and the people who live here are very welcoming.’’
Carmel House has a block-paved driveway at the front with access to a single garage with a remote controlled electric up-and-over door. The gardens wrap around the house and include a sizeable vegetable plot with a paved sitting area, lawned garden and summer house.
Joanna, who works in London several days a week as a consultant, says Carmel House was originally built by a local builder who then lived in it for a while.
Walk into the three-storey property and you’ll find a hallway leading to the first-floor. Also on the ground-floor level is a room which could be used as a fifth bedroom or gym, offering flexible accommodation.
Halfway up to the first-floor is a landing which is home to a cloakroom/lavatory and also to a generous lounge with feature fireplace and a gas stove. With windows on three sides, it is a lovely bright and spacious room, ideal for relaxing in the evening.
Moving up again onto the first-floor – the main living area – you’ll find a really large hall which could be used as an office space or dining room, a large dining kitchen with three-oven gas Aga plus a conventional combi-oven as well for summer use.
Next door is a large utility room with a large butler’s sink and access into the garden. Also on this floor is a garden room with French doors into the garden and a further room which is currently set up as a sitting room/office but is very versatile and could have a number of uses.
A further four bedrooms are all spacious and two have en-suites. The luxury contemporary house bathroom includes a walk-in shower and underfloor heating.
The beauty of this house is it’s versatility. With scope for five bedrooms, it is ideal for a growing family or the rooms can be used to create a playroom, office, gym etc. It close to all local amenities and ideal for anyone with children of school age.
Joanna said: “This house always surprises visitors with its size, space and versatility. It is very individual and unique. The wrap-around garden is also a bonus and is much bigger than you would initially think. Being south-facing, it does get a lot of sun and is very private.’’
