Take a tour of a home which comes with its own windmill

Not many houses come onto the market complete with their own windmill - but this five-bedroom detached bungalow is one such property.

Set on Green Belt land in five acres of grounds, which include large family gardens, the house comes with a Grade II-listed former windmill, paddocks and stables.

The really well-maintained family home and former plant nursery is set in the rural village of Darrington, just outside Pontefract, and although it's surrounded by open countryside it's got excellent road and rail links for those wanting to commute to Leeds.

Machir offers spacious and cleverly designed accommodation that over the years has been stylishly extended offering versatile accommodation which may be suitable for people seeking a separate annexe.

The design of the house means there are lovely views of the gorgeous garden and grounds from all the main rooms.

If you take a viewing you'll first come across some impressive reception rooms connected to the extended bedroom wing by a garden/sitting room which opens out through double glazed sliding patio doors to the rear garden.

It's approached via Moor Lane through gates which lead on to an extensive Tarmacadam driveway providing ample parking for several vehicles - there's also a double garage attached to the bungalow in addition to a range of other garages and stores.

You can drive down to the two paddocks (each approximately one acre) and to the rear of the gardens there are two stables and further paddock/storage sheds.

The former greenhouses from the time the property was run as a nursery are still in situ, all having lighting and some having partial heating.

Many of the outbuildings are ripe for further development or renovation, subject to any necessary planning and building consents.
