EXCEPTIONALLY SPACIOUS family home. Over 4,500 sq ft of internal living space offering VERSATILITY and FLEXIBILITY for everyone. 5 bedrooms in the main house, 2 in an attached self-contained annex. PERFECT for home working. LARGE PRIVATE rear garden. IDEALLY LOCATED close to the centre of Holmfirth.

Steeped in local history, Roseleigh is an unusual, quirky and interesting property that is the ideal family home. Originally part of the historic Bridge Mills, the house is a blend of the period style of the Mill Owner's house and the character of the Mill itself.

The house itself sits towards the front of a plot of nearly 1/2 acre. Internally, there are over 4,500 square feet (422 square metres) of living space so more than enough for the whole family to enjoy being together or in their own space. The main house includes 3 reception rooms, a dining kitchen, 5 bedrooms plus 3 further multi-purpose rooms; all of which are very well proportioned. There is also an attached self-contained 2 bedroom cottage / annex, currently used as both an office and a lucrative income producing Airbnb single bed cottage. The large enclosed sunny rear garden faces south east and backs onto the River Holme. The result is a property that offers real versatility in terms of how it can be used. It offers the ideal opportunity for true work - life balance and with so much space inside and out, there is something for the whole family to enjoy whatever their age and whatever the weather.

The heart of this family home is the large dining kitchen and this is the first room you come to when you enter the house. It's warm and welcoming and full of character with the Yorkshire stone flagged floor, exposed oak beams and thick walls creating a natural divide between the dining area and the kitchen. Taking pride of place is the gas fired AGA which is set in a through chimney breast. The fixtures and fittings are a sympathetic blend of period and modern and the large velux window over the kitchen and mullioned windows in the dining area add to the feeling of light and space. With glazed doors onto a balcony overlooking the rear garden, you can also keep a close eye on the family outside as you prepare meals.

Also on the ground floor are a formal lounge and a relaxed snug accessed from a rear corridor. Both rooms retain many period features including feature fireplaces and sash windows with original wooden shutters. The formal dining room is an interesting blend of period and character. These rooms are the perfect place to enjoy large family gatherings and celebrations, such as birthdays or anniversaries, not to mention Christmas. In warmer weather, your family and friends can spill out on the large sun terrace that is accessed from both the corridor and the lounge.

There are two staircases in this house and five large bedrooms. One staircase is in what was the Mill Owners house and leads up to bedroom 1 (with en-suite shower room) and bedroom 2. The other staircase is in the corner of the dining kitchen. From here, you can go up to a spacious landing which leads to both bedrooms 2 and 3 as well as the large family bathroom. This is another blend of period and character with cathedral ceilings and exposed beams and a striking claw foot roll top bath. There is an additional shower room on the top floor that is shared by bedrooms 4 and 5.

The lower ground floor is accessed via the stone staircase also from the kitchen. This brings you to a garden room, again with lots of character. The folding French doors lead out onto a stone terrace and into the garden. There are two further rooms, both with striking vaulted ceilings, which allow for a variety of uses. One would make a great playroom / TV / cinema room, the other a games room, hobby room or gym. Children of all ages, especially teenagers, will love this space!

Attached to the main house is a self-contained 2 bedroom cottage which can also be accessed from the dining room as well as through its own front or back doors. One of the bedrooms is currently used as an office which is the perfect solution if you need to work from home but want to minimise distractions!

This cottage is ideal as guest accommodation for visiting family or friends or perhaps older children who want their own space and independence. It offers scope for home / small business use as the 3 rooms could all be used as offices. The current owners also offer it as a successful and lucrative single bedroom weekend AIRBNB rental.

Outside - At the front there is a tarmac drive with visitor parking for 1 car and a small planted area. The main forecourt and parking area are accessed via a wooden electric security gate with intercom to the kitchen. Here there is ample parking for three vehicles with a turning area and access to the double garage. There's also a freestanding solid fuel store with lockable double doors.

The gardens at the front are more formal in style with a neat lawn and flower beds which are well stocked with plants, mature shrubs and trees. The flagged path leading to the original iron gate takes you onto the pavement and the road in front of the property.

At the back is an extensive, stunning, tree lined garden that backs onto the River Holme. Private and fully enclosed, it offers a tranquil place to relax and an ideal place to allow your children to run free. There's a fenced off area with a wooden fort and Wendy house plus some old chicken coups. You'll be spoiled for choice with what to do with it but, whatever you do, your family will love you for it! There is also timber clad blockwork construction outbuilding that has potential to be converted into a summer house.

The stone terrace with its feature cast iron baroque style fountain is ideal for relaxing and enjoying nature on your doorstep. It's also the perfect place for entertaining family and friends in the summer with bbq's - grown up's prepping food and everyone else playing on the lawn. The garden is south east facing with sufficient depth such that everyone can enjoy the sun into the early evening in summer.

As if that's not enough, the ornate Victorian style cast iron framed decked terrace, accessed from the garden terrace via a quirky spiral staircase, really does offer the opportunity to just relax and enjoy the views over the garden and trees down to the river and to the hillside beyond.

The property is in the catchment area of well-regarded schools and also close to all local amenities being within several minutes level walk into Holmfirth town centre. So it is easy to enjoy everything that this lovely market town has to offer. It offers the perfect blend of country living yet with easy access to the commuter network for Huddersfield, Leeds, Manchester, Sheffield and beyond.
