Property details: 4 Bedroom Detached | Warley Road, Halifax, HX2
This detached family home stands within large private gardens towards the top of Warley Road, the elevated position providing spectacular, far reaching views as far as the moors off in the distance. It retains much of the character of the period, with timber panelling, leaded and stained glass windows, deep ceiling covings, high skirtings... whilst combining that with modern features such as gas central heating and uPVC double glazed windows that match the originals. The whole frontage has wrought iron railed fencing, and there's a traditional garden with a central pathway up to the front door. Step into the spacious hallway and you immediately get a sense of what's in store. The timber panelling matches the balustraded stairway and the doors, each of which have stained glass windows. The large lounge at the front of the house has a circular bay window, and there's an additional sitting room with a splayed bay overlooking the gardens. The conservatory is the perfect place to sit and enjoy those gardens, actually, and then there's a dining room, a kitchen, a utility room, a large garage, and two WCs on the ground floor. Upstairs doesn't disappoint, either. The landing continues the theme set by the hallway, and there are four good sized bedrooms plus a study and a spacious bathroom, plus a useful loft space that has a Velux window, an ideal space for those with serious hobbies. Would you add a staircase to create extra bedroom space? There's plenty of space to add extra bathrooms, too, if that's your preference, and the large garage and the space outside allow for extensions, subject to any necessary planning. The gardens are a real feature, here, and we were most surprised by the size and the privacy. There's something for everyone, here, with large areas of lawn for the kids to run around in, plenty of colourful flowers, shrubs, and trees for the keen gardeners, and a good sized patio and terrace for family gatherings, or just to sit out and enjoy the weather. It's very private, and let's not forget those beautiful views.
A nice wide entrance hall, with plenty of space, that really does set the tone for the rest of the house. It's traditionally decorated with part wood panelled walls matching the balustrade of the staircase leading up to the first floor. There is a nice ceiling coving in here, as well as a delph shelf. The doors are stripped timber, with stained glass windows, a real feature of the home.
Fitted with a white two piece suite consisting of a low level WC and a small wash basin which is recessed into a tiled surround beneath a window.
LOUNGE: 15′ 7″ x 13′ 12″ (4.75m x 4.26m)
A large living room at the front of the property, with a circular leaded bay window with stained glass fanlights. There is a really deep ceiling coving, and nice high skirtings, to match. The central focal point is the fireplace that houses a log effect gas fire.
SITTING ROOM: 13′ 12″ x 13′ 12″ (4.26m x 4.26m)
Another good sized reception room, this one to the rear. A full height splayed bay window looks out over the private rear gardens. Again there is a nice deep ceiling coving, matching the high skirting boards, and a uPVC double glazed window matches the traditional windows in the lounge, looking out over the front gardens. Again, there is a central fireplace, this one housing a coal effect gas fire.
DINING ROOM: 13′ 11″ x 9′ 3″ (4.25m x 2.82m)
A nice dining room that narrows slightly to accommodate the cooking recess in the kitchen. There's a boiler and cloaks room off here, an ideal place for coats and shoes.
CONSERVATORY: 12′ 8″ x 9′ 8″ (3.86m x 2.94m)
A semi-circular conservatory that looks out over the beautiful rear gardens.
KITCHEN: 11′ 0″ x 9′ 5″ (3.36m x 2.86m)
Fitted with an extensive range of base and wall units, with matching drawers and complementing work surfaces, to tiled surrounds. There is a one and a half bowl sink unit, and integrated appliances include a four burner gas hob beneath a canopy hood, and an electric double oven.
UTILITY ROOM: 16′ 3″ x 3′ 9″ (4.96m x 1.15m)
A useful space with plumbing for a washing machine and a vent for a dryer. There is a sink unit in here, and and plenty of space for a chest freezer, coats and boots, etc.
FIRST FLOOR LANDING
A spacious landing with a leaded and stained glass window to the side. The timber panelled walls from the hallway extend up here, and there is a nice gallery effect, along with traditional ceiling coving.
BEDROOM ONE: 13′ 12″ x 13′ 12″ (4.26m x 4.26m)
A good sized double bedroom which overlooks the rear gardens and has spectacular, far reaching views as far as the moors off in the distance. There is a range of fitted wardrobes, as well as a washbasin set to a matching vanity unit. The uPVC window to the front matches the one in the sitting room below.
BEDROOM TWO: 14′ 0″ x 13′ 10″ (4.27m x 4.21m)
Another large double room, this one to the front of the property, with uPVC double glazed windows matching those in bedroom one and in the sitting room. The design matches the lounge windows below, too, for a uniform look from outside. There is an extensive range of fitted wardrobes with matching and vanity unit that houses a wash basin. We also see a nice repeat of the traditional ceiling coving and the high skirtings.
BEDROOM THREE: 9′ 6″ x 8′ 3″ (2.89m x 2.52m)
Again, this room looks out over those lovely rear gardens, and then has a view beyond, across the moors in the distance. There are fitted desk and drawers in here, too.
BEDROOM FOUR: 11′ 4″ x 8′ 11″ (3.45m x 2.73m)
A good sized fourth bedroom, again with uPVC double glazed windows matching those previously mentioned. There is a ceiling coving and a picture rail running round this room, and a useful storage area above the stairway. A triple wardrobe is fitted into this room, too.
STUDY: 6′ 11″ x 5′ 7″ (2.11m x 1.69m)
The perfect place to work from home, with fitted work surface and drawers. For those wishing to create a stairway up to the second floor, this space might be the ideal place for it.
A spacious bathroom that's fitted with a white four piece suite, consisting of a low level WC, a wash basin, a panelled bath with a Victorian style mixer tap leading to a handheld shower attachment, and a separate shower enclosure that has both rainwater and wand fitments. There is a useful cupboard for towels and linens, and the walls are partly tiled. There is a lovely stained glass leaded window that matches those downstairs.
To the second floor is a large loft room with a Velux window, along with a storage room with plenty of space. Access is via a loft ladder from the landing below, and it's a great space for hobbies.
