Award-winning specialist estate agency Applegate Properties has been instructed to find the new owners of Holmleigh Manor bed and breakfast.

A unique boutique guest house with picturesque views of the Holme Valley, the £1.15 million property is located in the rural, highly sought after village of Netherthong — less than a mile from the centre of Holmfirth and a five-minute drive from the Peak District National Park.

Boasting breathtaking scenery in its surroundings, highly-regarded schooling, local pubs and shops, bustling amenities and eateries, plus excellent transportation links, the property commands an enviable position on both a local and national scale — with previous owners including wealthy landowners and, later, mill owners.

Currently rated five stars on TripAdvisor, the elegant boutique entrance briefly comprises a vestibule, grand hall with original tiled flooring, rear lobby with cloaks/wc and access to a basement level, with vaulted boiler room and separate wine cellar.

To the ground floor is a sitting room with a period fireplace, formal dining room, library/drawing room and stylish breakfast kitchen with contemporary units, a feature cast iron range, stone flagged flooring and a central island.

A sweeping staircase with a prominent arched window leads to a spacious landing area, granting access to four large, individually-themed bedroom suites — each having luxuriously appointed en-suite shower rooms.

A private door with a second staircase leads to the separate large living studio, again completed to a high standard and including a substantial 42ft living/dining/kitchen space with vaulted ceiling, exposed beamwork, large concealed store room, and stairs to a mezzanine level library with access to substantial loft space.

A central landing with a glass balustrade and fitted, walk-in wardrobe also leads to three double bedrooms and luxuriously appointed shower room.

With roots dating back to circa 1820, the impressive period residence has undergone an extensive refurbishment in recent years — bringing a tasteful and contemporary edge that remains sympathetic to the original Georgian architecture.

Talking about the renovations, current owners Stephen and Andrew said: “Every room has its own charm — from the art deco inspired lounge with its 1930s fireplace and original Minton tile floor in the hall, to the vast second floor weaving room with exposed beams.

“Every room has an exceptional view too — including the uninterrupted vistas across the Holme Valley to the front, and the rooftops of Netherthong conservation area and onward to Castle Hill to the rear. The property even has its own spring well, which is filtered and pumped into the kitchen.”

Externally, Holmleigh Manor is approached by a sweeping driveway and private gated entrance, with generous lawned frontage including useful garden store, wooded area and paved patio.

Continuing to the side, a rear courtyard affords ample parking space, with an electric vehicle charging point, a pedestrian gate to the village, access to two open-fronted garages, adjoining laundry room and store — offering further potential subject to necessary consents.

Applegate Properties’ founder and managing director Amy Wray said: “It is rare that such a highly-regarded property of this size and stature comes onto the market.

“Having undergone such carefully-considered refurbishments under our clients’ ownership, the tasteful balance of period features with modern decor will provide something really unique for the next owners.

“Offering a unique lifestyle and business opportunity or versatile family residence, this is an excellent opportunity that we’re excited to be listing at Applegate Properties.”
