Andersons are proud to offer to the open market, with the benefit of no chain, this superbly appointed, stone built property located in the highly desirable rural location of Howbrook. At first glance Hollinberry Lodge appears to be a quintessential English cottage, and whilst it is believed to date back around 300 years it probably began life as just a humble elevated barn. Offering generous living accommodation over two floors, including a fabulous 'Farmhouse' style kitchen and large open plan living/dining room with beautiful beamed ceiling and Inglenook fireplace. This lovely, three bedroom, detached dwelling offers all the features of a period property whilst benefiting from the conveniences we have all come to expect in our modern homes.
The property is extremely well presented and benefits from oak framed double glazed windows, gas fired central heating (boiler installed in August 2018), a stylish farmhouse style kitchen and a contemporary family bathroom; whilst still retaining many of its period features such as quarry tiled flooring, exposed timber trusses and purlins, an Inglenook fireplace and timber lintels.
Hollinberry Lane leads off of the A61 and takes you into the lovely hamlet of Howbrook. Hollinberry Lodge is situated on the right hand side of the lane, with just two other properties in the vicinity it provides a lovely rural setting with a couple of neighbours for company. The property is well placed for access to the beautiful surrounding countryside with pretty walks available in all directions.
Despite its rural location the property is well situated for access to Sheffield, Rotherham and Barnsley all less than 9 miles distant and Leeds City Centre is only 28 miles away. Its proximity to major road networks, with J36 and J35a of the M1 being less than 3 miles away opens all of South Yorkshire up for the daily commute as well as the Woodhead Pass providing access to the west. Howbrook is a quiet and sleepy Hamlet the nearest shops, supermarkets and other amenities being available in High Green, Chapletown and Stocksbridge. For retail therapy fans both the Cortonwood Shopping Park and the recently opened Fox Valley Retail Park are with 15 mins drive. If country pubs are your thing then The Wortley Arms is well worth a visit or if Golf is your passion then there are two fine courses within a couple of miles.
All in all Howbrook is a splendid place to live and Hollinberry Lodge is ideally situated to take advantage of this beautiful location.
