Occupying an elevated position, this imposing stone built, double fronted property with a countryside front aspect is not only unique, but is also very attractive and appealing. Whilst the property does require some updating, which has been reflected in the newly reduced price, it should not detract from the potential to create a substantial and forever home for the modern family.

It was during the late 1800's when this formerly named, Bairstow Endowed School, offered the children living in the chapelry of Sowerby an education. The school closed its doors in 1904, before being converted and divided into dwellings, of which there are now four homes.

This four bedroom, two reception room property has retained some striking original features such as gothic arched stone doorways, traditional stained glass and open fireplaces. The rooms are well proportioned with high ceilings with many having built in alcove storage cupboards and the original stripped wooden doors, all with beautiful beading detail.

Having gas central heating and double glazing throughout - all apart from one remaining original sash window in the living room - the ground floor accommodation begins with a rear entrance hall with stunning arched doorway that leads to the conservatory and garden with doors to the kitchen, dining room and cellar. The living room runs the entire length of the property with large dual aspect windows bringing in lots of natural light and has a cosy Baxi Burnsall under floor open fire. At the other side of the staircase is the dining room and kitchen where there is potential to remove the wall to create one large kitchen-dining space. The front entrance hall has the original stained glass front door that opens out to the front garden with lovely Sowerby village views. A centralised staircase leads to the first floor and landing area that opens on to four good size bedrooms with large windows and built in storage cupboards, house bathroom, separate shower room and access to the loft space.

Externally, the rear of the property is approached via a shared driveway that leads to an open garden and parking area, and the conservatory. To the front of the property is an enclosed gravel garden with a central path running from the front door to a charming gate at the bottom and has a pleasing countryside outlook with far reaching views across to Wainstalls moors.

The location of this property is ideal, being conveniently placed in a highly sought after village location that is within walking distance of local amenities, shops and highly regarded schooling. There are stunning countryside walks straight from the doorstep and the local pub is only a minutes walk away. Buses run frequently to Sowerby Bridge and Halifax, where further train links can be made to Leeds, Manchester and beyond. Sowerby Bridge, a 5 minute drive away, offers a wealth of further amenities, supermarkets and restaurants, as well as the local gym and swimming pool.

To summarise, this home would make an exceptional purchase for many types of buyers and a viewing is highly recommended to fully appreciate the huge potential of this property. There has been a new price reduction to further cover the cost of the work required. Call us for further details, or to book a viewing appointment, or lines are open 24/7. We look forward to showing you around what could be your next home.
