Houses in the Wakefield area with swimming pools do not come onto the market very often so this one in the highly sought after residential area of Sandal is well worth a second look.

It's a really stunning example of a modern four-bedroom, five-bathroom, detached family home which sits on a plot of around 0.64 acres on Milnthorpe Lane.

All the rooms are well-proportioned with the welcoming reception hall acting as a central hub to the ground floor principal rooms.

There is a lovely sitting room with French doors to a sizeable patio area, which, despite being at the front of the house, enjoys a good degree of privacy.

There is a similarly well proportioned living room that also has French doors to the front patios and gardens beyond. A separate formal dining room, an office and a guest w.c. are also situated off the reception hall.

The kitchen and adjoining dining area are a particularly strong feature of the house and are fitted to an excellent standard, with a full range of integrated appliances and granite worktops.

Adjoining the dining area is a perfectly relaxing snug and an inner hallway then leads through into a substantial leisure annex that houses the large indoor heated swimming pool with associated changing, shower and plant rooms together with a gorgeous well-proportioned sun room with a lantern roof and wide bi-folding doors to the patio and gardens beyond.

The property is approached via automated gates from the lane, which open into a large parking/turning area that in turn leads into a substantial detached garage block with ancillary accommodation to the rear and first floor.

Sweeping lawns with mature beds and borders lead round the front of the house to an orchard and a further substantial lawned garden to the side, while to the rear there is a wonderful entertaining area with ample patio space, a pergola, gazebo and large lawned gardens taking full advantage of the southerly views over the neighbouring fields.

The property is on the market with Richard Kendall Estate Agent at £1,200,000.
