Have your say

Set in vast lawned gardens and woodland, this beautiful, seven bedroom, 18th century period property offers ideal scope and potential to create a truly stunning individual property.

Situated in the centre of the picturesque village of Harthill, near Rotherham and immediately adjacent to All Hallows Church, the property was rebuilt in 1720 for the second Reverend John Hewitt. It gained Grade II listed status in 1966 and is now being used as a family home. Built of ashlar sandstone under a Westmoreland slate hipped roof, architectural features of the property include raised quoins, bolection moulding and a fine early-18th century cantilevered oak staircase. It has alternate barley-sugar and slender-turned balusters and at its foot a cupboard with linenfold panelling re-used from the old 16th century rectory. In the centre of this imposing home, the entrance hall provides access to the two principal reception rooms. The kitchen features an Aga recessed within an inglenook style chimney breast, and a 15 pane sash window with window seat overlooks the side garden and driveway. There are two good sized cellars. The master bedroom has built in window seats and a feature fireplace, plus a dressing room attached. There are two further bedrooms on this floor. The family bathroom is split level and features a sunken bath, vanity wash basins, useful storage cupboards and a separate shower enclosure. On the second floor there are four bedrooms. Outside, situated behind a high stone wall, gates to the side lead to a gravelled driveway which in turn gives access to the entrance lobby and coach house. To the rear are extensive gardens and woodland. The coach house could provide useful separate accommodation, subject to the usual planning consents.
