Whole floor of mansion house for sale in Wakefield conservation village
The ground floor, part of the gardens and a private courtyard within a Grade 11 mansion house in the heart of a Wakefield conservation village are for sale.
The origins of Heath House date back to the mid seventeenth century, but the Heath property is now converted in to five high end homes, each containing protected, original features.
Part of the house was designed by architect James Paine in his early career, with the stone cantilevered staircase hall a prototype for his work in Belford Hall and Gosforth Park.
Electric gates open to a driveway with parking, and a Yorkshire stone paved area has views over the enclosed gardens and the village green.
Separate entrances allow independence between the apartments.
The accommodation includes a reception hall, an inner staircase hall, two reception rooms, three bedrooms, of which two have en suite facilities, a dining kitchen, utility room, snug, and a boiler room.
A side hall leads to a basement with the potential for a cinema room, gymnasium, or other use.
Yorkshire stone flagged floors, brick fire surrounds, arched and sash windows all prevail, with coving and deep skirting boards. Galleried landings, ornate cornicing, appliques and dado rails also feature.
Walk-in bay windows that have original working shutters overlook the lawn from reception rooms.
The dining kitchen is fitted with bespoke units, and has a large central island, plus a utility room. In the master bedroom is an original stone fireplace, with a luxurious en suite.
There is an added opportunity to buy a self-contained unit with a private entrance. The tenure of the property is leasehold.
