This lovely home on Southdale Road, Ossett was designed for Charles Kendall (no relation to the selling agent!), who held the splendid title of Ossett borough architect. Externally, he would still recognise his former home – but inside is a different story altogether.

The current vendor, who is only the fifth owner of the property, has undertaken a dramatic internal refurbishment and extension,using high-quality materials, glass and lighting to create a stylish contemporary living space with plenty of eye-catching features. Mr Kendall would surely be impressed.The majority of the ground floor is taken up by an open-plan sequence of lounge-sitting area-dining area-breakfast kitchen, from which wide bi-folding doors open out on to the rear garden. On this level are also a separate sitting room and adjoining en-suite bedroom which could provide a self-contained teen or granny flat.On the first floor are four bedrooms (master en suite) and house bathroom, while outside are an integral garage and additional parking space to the front and a lawned garden with patio and screening trees to the rear.It is on the market for £595,000 with Richard Kendall Estate Agent, more details at: www.richardkendall.co.uk/property/southdale-road-ossett/
