The sale of Chevet Grange offers a rare opportunity to acquire a signature period family home with an array of adjoining outbuildings suitable for adapting to a number of uses such as for those with equestrian interests, providing leisure facilities or home office accommodation if preferred. The principal dwelling faces south west and enjoys exceptional views over surrounding green belt countryside.

Junction 39 of the M1 is only some 4½ miles away providing ready access to the commercial centres of Leeds, Huddersfield, Manchester and Sheffield and Westgate Railway Station provides access to London’s Kings Cross within approximately 2 hours.

The kitchen opens into a lovely spacious orangery overlooking the private enclosed courtyard and there is a study/boot room providing access to the side of the house. Furthermore, leading off the kitchen is a snug and adjoining laundry room. There is also a further sitting room at the rear of the house and a vaulted wine cellar accessed by a sandstone staircase which has recently been refurbished.

Leading off the first floor landing are five double bedrooms with the principal bedroom having the added benefit of its own en suite facilities and walk in wardrobe. The spacious house bathroom offers a four piece suite and underfloor heating.

Outside, initially the property is approached down an access from Chevet Lane shared with the farm and then through electric gates down a private sweeping driveway leading to a parking courtyard for numerous vehicles and in turn giving access to the three bay open fronted garage block. Adjacent to the garaging is a range of ancillary buildings, some now in need of refurbishment, and there is a further range of stables and outbuildings adjoining the main house to the rear.

The next steps...

Before making an offer on a property you will want to consider your financial situation, your income and outgoings.

Will you finance the purchase of your next property from the sale of an existing property which can put you in a chain, arrange a mortgage through your bank or buy the property outright.
To help you finance your next property purchase, we have a long established relationship with an independent mortgage broker who can discuss your situation with you.

Remember that having a 'mortgage decision in principle' can make you a more attractive buyer when you make an offer on a property. Contact our mortgage advisers for free, no obligation and impartial advice.
Some advantages of a broker are:

  • They do all the legwork for you, working on your behalf with the lender
  • They compare wholesale mortgage rates from a large number of banks and lenders all at once
  • Wholesale interest rates can be lower than retail (bank branch) interest rates
  • You get more loan options because they work with numerous banks and lenders
  • Brokers can finance tricky deals because of their knowledge and various lending partners
  • Are typically easier to get in contact with, less bureaucratic.

However with your bank maybe able to:

  • Build off existing relationship (discounts if you have a checking/saving account)
  • You may already know the banker who will handle your mortgage
  • Perhaps more trustworthy, more accountable than a smaller shop
  • Lower interest rates in some cases
  • Ability to add mortgage to existing banking profile and make automatic payments from linked account.

When it comes to making an offer on a property a bit of negotiation is to be expected, however don't offer so little that you end up in a lengthy negotiation process, as you might lose the property altogether if someone else makes a higher bid.
