Thatched houses are usually associated with Cotswolds cottages and West Country villages – but this eye-catching example is actually located on the outskirts of Wakefield.On Walton Lane, Sandal, it is a four-bedroom detached house with a hint of Arts & Crafts styling, though it is the thatched roof, porch and bay window which really grab the attention, set against white rendered walls.An oak front door leads to a spacious hall with ceiling beams, in turn giving access to two ground-floor reception rooms, dining kitchen and utility room.Arguably the interior higlight is the bathroom, which as well as a freestanding bath and underfloor heating, features half-height wood panelling in place of the usual ceramic tiles.Also on the first floor are the four bedrooms, with the master and second room sharing Jack and Jill en suite facilities.Mature gardens include lawns and a wide drive leading to a detached garage. Behind is an office with log-burning stove and WC, equally suitable as a guest annexe.It is on the market for £565,000.www.zoopla.co.uk/for-sale/details/48397001?search_identifier=206a9f95470d3441409a932cd60abbf8
