2 Calder Gate
If you are looking for a fabulous detached family home, with opportunity to work from home, then look no further than this former show home. Four double bedrooms, lounge, living/dining/kitchen, two bathrooms plus downstairs cloakroom, utility and gardens to front and rear with a large double driveway which can easily accommodate five or six cars plus a large studio, with the footprint of a double garage, which has endless uses.
Located on the edge of the ever popular City Fields development, easily accessible into Wakefield and a short drive to the motorway network. This delightful home is also only a stones throw from the river Calder and the canal, with an abundance of walks and outdoor space, perfect for families, dog owners and nature lovers alike.
Arriving at the house, nestled on a generous corner plot, you will notice the additional space afforded to this former show home. The mature planted front garden is enclosed with wrought iron railings and gate. To the side is a large block paved driveway leading up to the studio, originally the sales office for the development, which could easily be converted back to a double garage. A gate leads through to the enclosed rear garden.
Through the smart front door, step into the entrance hall, with stairs leading to the first floor, a useful storage cupboard, ideal for coats and shoes, and access to the lounge and kitchen / diner.
To the front of the house, this well proportioned room has a wonderful bay window to the front of the house. Modern décor and sleek hard floors make this a practical yet chic living space, perfect for professionals with young families. This is an ideal space for curling up with a book to relax with a glass of wine once the kids are settled in bed, or entertaining friends for pre-dinner drinks on a Saturday night.
Kitchen / Diner
Next door to the lounge is what truly is the heart of the home. Cooking, eating and living space which flows to the outside, is perfect for family living all year round. Space for a dining table as well as a separate seating area still leaves space for kids to roam and play, whilst the stylish kitchen is separated with a breakfast bar but still open to the living space to keep an eye on the kids or chat to your other half whilst you prepare dinner.
The well equipped kitchen has plentiful cabinets for storing all your culinary wares, with a five burner gas hob and suspended extractor hood over looking out to the living space. Integrated oven and microwave grill are set at convenient waist height to the rear, with integrated dishwasher and sink under the window looking out onto the rear garden.
We love the light in this room, with a bay window in the living area, French doors leading directly into the rear garden and the kitchen window all letting light flood in.
Tucked round the corner is the utility area, with space for washing machine and dryer and an entrance door to the side of the house. Just beyond is the downstairs WC complete with handbasin.
You can just imagine your day in this space from first thing in the morning, kids eating cereal at the breakfast bar whilst you sip a coffee and plan the day, oversee homework at the kitchen table after school whilst prepping in the kitchen and later enjoy a family feast at the dining table. On a summer weekend, welcome friends for a BBQ and throw open the French doors to let the party spill out into the garden.
Bed and bath
Back into the hall and take the stairs to the first floor where you will find the bedrooms and bathrooms.
To the front of the house is the stylish Master bedroom. Fitted wardrobes to one wall offer plentiful storage with space for drawers or a dressing table at the other side of the room. The window overlooks the front garden. The sleek en-suite bathroom has WC, hand basin and walk in shower. A wonderful space for rest and relaxation at the end of a busy day.
To the rear of the house, with two windows overlooking the rear garden is bedroom two. A spacious double bedroom, this is ideal as an older teenagers bedroom or perfect for guests.
Next door to the master bedroom, this room is large enough to accommodate a double bed but would equally make a lovely nursery or toddler bedroom.
Across from bedroom two is the family bathroom. Chic décor with attractive tiling, it encompasses white bath with shower over, hand basin set in a useful storage cabinet and WC with a window to the side of the house.
To the rear of the house, last but not least, is bedroom four. Currently accommodating a double bed, this spacious room could equally be used as bedroom or maybe a home office.
The front of the house has an enclosed front garden with mature planting. To the side is the studio. Originally the sales office for the development, the footprint is of a double garage and it could easily be converted to use as a garage. However, that is merely one option! The current owners use this space as a yoga studio and it could have all manner of uses for its new owners. Work from home space does not get much better than this, keeping it separate from the main house but easily accessible with space for three or four people to work from here.
Or if you have always wanted that outside bar and games room, this is ideal. Already with power and décor, and a door directly into the garden, you could set up a bar and pool table, TV on the wall and have easy access to the BBQ, and maybe even a hot tub, in the garden!
The rear garden is fully enclosed with a patio space directly off the French doors from the kitchen. West facing, you’ll enjoy sun all day and late into a summers evening here.
