Converted station house in Batley
This former railway station, located in Old Hall Road, Upper Batley, has been converted into a bright, spacious home perfect for families due to its size and tranquil, semi-rural location.
Although the line was discontinued, some of the original features still remain to this day.
The most interesting of which is the station platform which now forms an integral part of the front garden and overlooks the lawn.
The house itself was built in the 1960s and has seen extensions added to it over the years, making it very generous in size. The grand reception room contains a large open fire, and a separate marble-surrounded gas fire.
A recent extension has added a conservatory overlooking the rear gardens, accessible through a pair of French doors. The conservatory has plenty of space to be used as a second reception room, and numerous windows keep the room bright .
The fully fitted kitchen has a matching range of base and eye-level units with plenty of work top space, including breakfast bar and adjacent utility room.
The five bedrooms have fitted wardrobes, master with en-suite and there is also a modern house bathroom with four-piece suite.
There are impressive well stocked gardens to all four sides of the property with large lawned areas and various flower, tree and shrub beds .
There is parking to the front for six cars with access to the detached double garage.
The property is on the market with Whitegates for £550,000.
