Vernon Cottage, 196 King Street, Hoyland, BARNSLEY
3 Bedroom Semi-Detached House
Dating back to 1903 and having been the Mill House until it was sympathetically divided into two properties, one of which we are delighted to present to the market as no.2 Vernon Cottage. This is a most characterful property of impressive proportion with a substantial double garage/workshop and private walled garden which aren’t at all visible from the roadside. Perfectly placed between Hoyland and Elsecar and of particular interest to the buyer looking for a large family home in a semi rural setting but within the M1 corridor and close to a local train station. Benefitting from double glazing and a gas central heating system, the combi boiler being only a couple of months old, the house offers flexible accommodation and scope for the new owners to make it their own. Briefly, the layout comprises; Hall, lounge, dining room, breakfast kitchen and rear utility lobby with the option to create a cloakroom/wc. To the upper floor, a landing with access into the loft space, master bedroom with en-suite shower room, two further double bedrooms, box room and bathroom. To the front of the house is additional private parking whilst to the back of the house is a rather extensive level lawned garden. EPC D
The house sits between Hoyland and Elsecar villages and therefore has access to a host of local amenities and facilities, supermarkets and independent retailers. The area benefits from local schools, sports and health club and recreational facilities. The Trans Pennine Trail, Elsecar heritage centre and park are on the doorstep and the locality is ideal for the M1 motorway and local train station.
From junction 36 of the M1 motorway, head toward Hoyland along the A6135 Sheffield Road to Allotts Corner. Turn left at the traffic lights onto the B6096 Hoyland Road. Turn right onto the B6097 West Street and continue into the village and onto High Street which then becomes King Street. Continue on this road and just before it becomes Hill Street, look out for the house on the left set back from the roadside.
