Hepworth House sits within a small secure community of three large detached homes in a secluded location close to the centre of Kirkheaton.
There are good local facilities close by along with supermarkets and a wide range of other general facilities within a short drive.
This is a great location for commuters by road or rail. There is relatively easy access to the M62 and a variety of train stations in the vicinity which offer services to the regional business centres and the capital.
Hepworth House was built in x to a very high standard and offers spacious living areas arranged over three floors.
This is a very stylish home which suits large families or those who just want space to entertain and a good degree of privacy.
We love the classical proportions and the styling of this impressive home, it is a great combination of traditional design with all the modern conveniences, the best of both worlds.
The family live-in kitchen is a superb space which is perfect for the whole family to cook, dine, play and relax at any time of year. The formal sitting room is very large and could easily be divided to create a second study while still retaining a spacious living room.
All the bedrooms are spacious double rooms and the first floor house bathroom is really impressive. The master suite is a particularly strong feature, it has plenty of room for a large bed, wardrobes and a sitting area, there’s a great en suite and a dressing room with plenty of storage furniture.
The two top floor bedrooms sit either side of a shower room and these not only make excellent bedrooms but there is the obvious potential for them to be arranged as a bedroom and a sitting room for a very lucky older child who wants their own space away from the family living areas.
The setting is great. A long private drive runs up from security gates to three substantial homes. The gardens for Hepworth House back onto an open field and the property is being sold with a plot to the side which offers great scope for a variety of purposes, subject to consents.
The Ground Floor Living Areas
You enter this great home under a grand entrance portico with impressive stone pillars. The solid entrance door has side lights to bring light into the spacious reception hall which has an impressive oak staircase with glass panels rising through spacious landings on all three floors.
A tiled floor runs from the hallway, through to a stylish ground floor cloakroom and into the beautiful family kitchen.
The kitchen has banks of clean contemporary cabinets arranged around a large central island. The island has a glass breakfast bar and a hob set beneath a canopy within the contoured and back lit ceiling. The main run of cabinets house an integrated fridge and a freezer. There is also a cluster of stainless steel Neff appliances which include two ovens, a convection microwave and a coffee machine.
Another run of cabinets incorporates a large pantry cupboard for all the herbs, spices and ambient foods. This is a great cook’s kitchen which has a lot of storage in one easy to use space. The final run of cabinets sits beneath a row of sash windows which look over the rear garden, enabling you to clean up while watching the kids play. There is also an integrated dishwasher and most importantly a Liebherr wine fridge.
This superb l-shaped space opens into a beautiful garden room which has banks of windows to three sides, along with patio doors and skylights. These bring in good levels of light at most times of year and the patio doors can be flung open on the better days to create an easy free flowing space. The living area off the kitchen has plenty of space for a large dining table and a seating area, and there’s a built-in dresser unit for all your best crockery and crystal.
The adjoining utility room has laundry connections and plenty of storage space for all the practicalities required to run a large home. The boiler room provides great drying space and there is an external door and a door into the integral garage.
The three separate living rooms provide a variety of spaces for your family and friends to gather on any occasion. Across the hall from the kitchen there is a cosy family snug with windows looking over the front drive, this is a great room for a family movie.
The study to the front of the house makes a great home office for those who work from home, alternatively it is an ideal play room with an easy to clean oak floor.
The formal sitting room is really spacious and can host many guests in style and comfort. There are windows to two sides and the room is focused around a contemporary stove set within an impressive carved stone fireplace. There are patio doors which open onto the rear patio, allowing the house to flow freely between the sitting room and the kitchen for summer garden parties.
This is such a big room that it would be feasible to divide the area leading to the patio doors and still retain a really nicely proportioned sitting room. This would enable you to create and inner lobby and another room with patio doors to the garden. We could really see this new space being a great second study, a library or music room.
The First & Second Floor Bedrooms
The impressive oak staircase rises onto the spacious landing which has space for a sitting area. A perfect place to enjoy a good book with a backdrop of large mature trees.
The master bedroom suite is a real treat and a great place to start and end the day. The bedroom is very spacious, has windows to two sides and plenty of room for a sitting area. The dressing room is beautifully presented and has a wide range of fitted wardrobes, drawers, display spaces and a dressing table to prepare for the day or a big night out. The en suite is unusually large and has a bath set into a central peninsula, with granite surrounds and a hand shower. The large walk in shower has overhead and hand held heads and there are twin basins set on granite topped cabinets. This lovely room has two windows looking to the front and two large towel rails.
The second suite is also very spacious and has plenty of room for a sofa and desk, a great place for kids or staying guests. There is a dressing room with open fitted units and an en suite shower room. The third bedroom is also a good sized double room which has a range of stylish fitted wardrobes.
The beautiful house bathroom is very spacious and is arranged as a mirror image of the master en suite. It has a peninsula bath, a large walk in shower, twin cabinet mounted basins, a loo and two large towel rails, all complimented by light granite surrounds. A perfect place for the kids or guests to bath in style.
The staircase continues from the first floor to a central second floor landing, off which there is a shower room which has also been very well finished. There is a shower, a loo and a range of cabinets with quartz composite surfaces.
There are two substantial second floor bedrooms which can easily accommodate large beds, sitting space and areas for study and play, perfect for older children. These rooms have skylights and dormer windows looking to the front of Hepworth House.
Depending on your requirements, these rooms could be arranged as a games room and home cinema, more great office space or a bedroom and sitting room for a very lucky child.
Remotely operated cast iron gates open onto a long driveway which runs up through mature gardens to Hepworth House.
There is a stone set area in front of the remotely operated gate which rolls back to reveal the gravelled driveway in front of this impressive home. There is plenty of parking for family and guests and access to the integral double garage.
A stone flagged path curves around the house within the lawned front and side gardens which are bordered by mature hedges and trees. The rear garden is a great space which has a planted border in front of a dry stone wall, beyond which there is a large open field, giving a private rural aspect to this great home.
A large flagged patio stretches across the back of Hepworth House, a perfect place for al-fresco lunches and BBQ’s. The patio connects both sets of doors from the living room and kitchen living area, creating a great garden party area and a very nice secure environment for the kids to play.
The Side Plot
Beyond the side garden, there is another area which has mature trees and offers great further potential. This area is currently used for storage and over-flow parking for family and guests but it has so much more potential.
If you are a really keen gardener this area could be incorporated into the main garden to provide a lovely side garden or a great place to have all the swings, slides, football nets and trampolines that a family may want.
This could be a great location if you wanted to create a separate summer house, a hideaway, man-cave or home office.
With the necessary consents, it may also be possible to create a more substantial and permanent structure. You could create great garaging is you are a committed petrol head. There would be ample space for a health and fitness suite, possibly including a swimming pool. There may also be the potential to create a significant office and studio space if you want to run your business from home. There may also be the possibility to create a substantial dependant annexe for relatives, long term guests or live-in staff.
