The four bedroom detached Shaftesbury combines classic Arts and Crafts inspired architecture with an interior layout designed to more than meet the needs of the modern family.
Multiple windows on three sides flood this home with light, enhancing the sense of space, while simple, yet elegant design makes the most of every square foot.
The ground floor is split between an impressive formal lounge and a more casual family kitchen / dining room, with ample space in both rooms. The kitchen comes fully fitted with designer units and premium quality appliances, and benefits from a separate utility with exterior access, while the dining / living area enjoys both a large front window and a double sized patio door to the garden beyond. There is also a downstairs cloakroom off the main hall.
Upstairs, the central landing leads to four double sized bedrooms, including an en-suite master bedroom, as well as a comfortable family bathroom.
Perfectly simple in style, the Shaftesbury is simply perfect for the larger family who demand more from their home and their lifestyle.

EducationThe local area operates a three-tier school system, and Stoney Bank chase has all three levels within easy reach of home. Children start at Kirkroyds Infants School, rated ‘good’ by Ofsted in their recent inspection. They then move up to Wooldale Juniors close by, which was assessed to have ‘good’ personal development, behaviour and pupil welfare. Both schools are just a short drive away, or you can leave the car and enjoy a morning walk together.
Older pupils are even luckier, with the ‘good’ rated and highly popular Holmfirth High School just a few minutes walk away from the development across the school fields.
