Property Location

Steeped in history, set across sublevels, brimming with character and filled with period quirks, No. 34 Brandlesholme Road is the epitome of unique, nestled in the heart of exclusive Greenmount and unlikely to be replicated in the area.

On the cusp of the local park, Greenmount cricket club, local walks and schools, the premier location of this barn conversion is merely one of the many outstanding features to recommend it.

Park on the driveway to the left of this characterful stone barn conversion, set beneath an old Yorkshire stone roof whose uneven patterning is utterly in keeping with the nature of the property. The unassuming exterior belies a labyrinth of levels, beams, vaulted ceilings and other treasures within.

Detached on three and a half sides, part of the rear wall links to the neighbouring property, formerly the old shippon. Unique in its design, half of No. 34 is a converted stone barn, whilst its other side was once a two-up-two-down stone cottage; both dating back to the 1800s and converted into one dwelling roughly 40 years ago.

Part of the manor, long since vanished, No 34. Brandlesholme Road, while unlisted, appears in historical records of Greenmount. Retained by the same owner for the last quarter of a century, No. 34 has been lovingly refurbished twice in that period.

Take the external steps up to the front entrance and step inside. Ahead, the grand vaulted ceiling of the lounge, embellished in gnarled, exposed beams, reveals itself. Brimming with antiquated charm, light streams in through a high circular window, whilst the original stonework of the thick exposed barn wall is painted in a fresh white. Exposed wooden floors gleam underfoot, varnished to a slick shine.

A substantially sized lounge, soak up the views out of the window over the front, and towards the park and Greenmount cricket club from the side.

The hub of the home, the staircases converge here, leading off in different directions.

Nestled on an intermediary floor, step down to discover the master bedroom, carpeted and cosy with rustic, treacle-toned exposed beams overhead.

Suffused with cosy cottage charm, draw the curtains on the two deep set windows and snuggle down to sleep. Walk in wardrobes fitted with shelving, storage units and hanging rails provide plentiful storage for all your clothes, shoes and accessories.

Slip beneath an archway, leading to a sumptuously sized ensuite; your own secret spa, fully tiled to floor and walls and fitted with corner bath, separate pressure shower, wash basin and WC with a large mirror to one wall.

Returning to the main lounge, step up and beneath the stone door opening to find a cosy landing, off which two further bedrooms are located.

Sweet dreams await in bedroom two, carpeted and cosy beneath the exposed beams set within the vaulted ceiling. Ample storage is on hand in this spacious double bedroom with an array of fitted cupboards to one wall.

Next door, suffused in light from two windows overlooking the garden, discover bedroom three. A large, carpeted, double bedroom, it is currently utilized as a home office, fitted with a designer office desk, worktops, storage units and bookcases. Modern life comes dressed in rustic charm as an exposed beam spans the vaulted ceiling above. Two additional built-in wardrobes proffer even more storage.

Ideal for those looking to work from home, No 34. Brandlesholme Road also benefits from high speed fibre optic broadband.

Dressed in the finery of a bygone era, No. 34 retains one foot firmly in the present, with Sky television, a Valiant remote-control energy efficient boiler and controller, valved thermostatic radiators and lighting mainly fitted with LED energy efficient bulbs.

A dream ‘hide and seek’ home for children, the cubby holes and different levels are brimming with potential.

Take the stairs to the ground floor, noting the natural finish wooden doors used throughout the home and infusing the space with warmth and homely welcome.

Take a right and freshen up in the family bathroom. Tiled in slate grey tones underfoot and gleaming white to the walls, soak away your cares in the tub, as light flows in through the window above. Overhead, an electric shower is also on hand, with a pedestal wash basin and WC also fitted.

Returning to the inner hall on the ground floor, make your way into the kitchen, where high quality laminate flooring extends underfoot, continuing into the dining room and porch beyond.

Honey-toned solid wood cabinetry provides ample space for storing all your pots, pans and other culinary essentials, complementing the exposed beams above. Integrated appliances include a double gas Range with twin electric ovens, integrated fridge-freezer and dishwasher. Light flows in through a window above the sink, highlighting the shine in the tiled walls that surround. A convivial kitchen, pull out a bottle of red from the built-in wine rack and pour yourself a glass as you prepare the evening’s feast for the family. Currently serving as a handy pantry, a cottage-style stable door leads into a partially wood-panelled porch with laminate flooring, ideal when returning from walks around the countryside. Stash your coat and shoes in the built-in storage cupboard.

Recently refurbished only last year, the dining room flows naturally on from the kitchen via a quirky archway, continuing the high-quality flooring through. Plenty of space here to eat, dine and be merry with family and friends.

Steps lead up to the tiled utility room, with crisp light grey wood panelling to the walls and featuring a work top – ideal for laundry, and plumbed for a washer and tumble dryer. Also housing the modern Vaillant gas condensing boiler (still under guarantee), sneak a preview peek out of the back door to the rear garden.

Step outside and explore the paved terraced garden. Sunny and south facing, colour fills the space from walled flower borders and hanging baskets. When spring and summer turn to autumn, fiery tendrils of Virginia creeper cover the rear of the home in glowing embers.

Sit outside on the low maintenance paved and terraced areas, soaking up the sunshine in this sun trap. To the rear, children may delight in spying horses, sheep, chickens and the occasional cow in the farmyard beyond. Safe and secure for children and pets, this fully enclosed timber fenced garden also has a large steel shed and wooden bin store.
