Set within lovely gardens with countryside beyond, the Ackworth stone fronted property is thought to date back to the nineteenth century, but has a modern interior that doesn’t compromise its cottage character.
Spacious yet cosy, its current owners have retained traditional features.
Entry via the rear door is through a large utility room, and there’s a w.c. and wine cellar.
An open-plan, farmhouse-style breakfast kitchen and family room is a hub of the home, with oak units. A log burner on Yorkshire stone hearth adds to the rustic appeal of the beamed family area.
The dining room was once the village post office, it is believed, with a brick fireplace and a deep bay with a view. A bright, dual-aspect lounge also has a brick fireplace, and a window with a rural outlook.
From the ground floor, a bespoke timber staircase climbs to a gallery landing, leading to a family bathroom and four large bedrooms....three with exceptional views.
The master bedroom has an en-suite shower room, while a second room is king-sized, with a corner wash basin. In bedroom three are wardrobes and statement wallpaper, and bedroom four is currently used as an office.
The gardens showcase lawns, flower beds, and Wisteria arches, with covered pergolas. There’s a choice of patio seating areas and a summer house, plus two separate garages and off road parking space.
Rose Cottage, Carleton, Pontefract, is for sale priced £600,000 with Enfields Luxe estate agents.
