A most impressive period semi detached family home located in the highly regarded St Johns area of Wakefield, having been tastefully and cleverly upgraded throughout now providing a level of presentation which is rarely found on the open market and in keeping with the character of the building.
This distinctive property offers an array of features in keeping with the character of the building and offers spacious and versatile living accommodation rarely found on the open market.
The accommodation is arranged over four floors with over 3000 sq/ft of living space which is approached via a glazed reception vestibule leading in turn to a central reception hall and then an impressive lounge with bay window, a large separate dining room and family breakfast room with adjacent kitchen. To the first floor are three double bedrooms along with a house bathroom which is fitted with a luxury suite including freestanding roll top bath and separate double shower.

The present owners have also converted the sizeable cellar area which now provides even further accommodation. There are two double bedrooms along with a contemporary shower room and substantial utility area. This part of the property is self contained with external access to the rear and could be used as an annex for additional family members or it has the potential for the new owners to work from home.
A significant amount of hard landscaping has been undertaken to the external areas providing an appealing yet relatively low maintenance garden ideal for outdoor entertaining. A secure electric wrought iron gate leads into a cobbled drive providing ample off road parking and on to a detached double garage.
St Johns retains an enviable reputation as one of Wakefield's most sought after locations.
