HOLMFIRTH is home to long-running BBC series Last of the Summer Wine, which starred a young and chubby Catherine Zeta Jones gambolling through some of the prettiest country you could ever wish to wander.
Holmfirth Street is in Menora and while CZJ hasn’t been spied in these parts, this is as pretty a home you could want, and about as vast as the Yorkshire dales of ye old Holmfirth.
Sculpted hedges and broad leafy trees are a pleasantly green welcome to this amazing five-bedroom/three-bedroom home.
It sits on 1138sqm, which is big even by Menora/Mt Lawley standards.
You just about need a map to navigate this home with its commodious formal and informal lounge and dining rooms, massive open plan living area, upstairs sitting room and many bedrooms.
the bygone elegance of America’s deep south…
Huge arched windows abound, screened by beautiful, white-plantation shutters, which give a touch of the bygone elegance of America’s deep south.
There are four of sets in the huge formal lounge, which is a gracious room with an open fire place.
French doors lead to the nearby dining room which has space for a 12-seater dining suite.
Step into the open living area and you’ll be blown away by the sense of light and space.
Whether dining formally, or informally or whipping up a meal for family or guests it’s made easy in this pristine kitchen, with its grey and white flecked granite benches, many soft-close drawers and double pantry.
A gargantuan covered patio offers a third living/dining space, with room for a huge dining table and plenty left over for a couple of lounges.
The patio over looks a lush garden, with plenty of trees, beautiful standardised roses and a hedge of fir trees sheltering the pool.
There’s a guest bedroom, with semi-ensuite downstairs, while you’ll find the other bedrooms upstairs, along with a spacious living area.
The main bedroom is a monster space, with a dressing-room/walk-in robe and ensuite with a separate toilet.
This is a dress circle address, close to shops, cafes and schools.
