Seller Insight Green Moor is a small and peaceful South Yorkshire hamlet that is situated in a glorious location, surrounded by lush green fields, wooded slopes and rolling farmland. The area has a well known industrial heritage. At its centre lies School House, an imposing stone built property dating back to 1879, which, until the late 1950s, was home to the school Head teacher. “I’d say it was a combination of the character of the property and its location which initially drew me and my husband to School House,” explained Chris. “We walked up the path, turned around and were taken aback by the amazing far reaching views. On a clear day, you can see the sun glinting on the Yorkshire Wolds, a way off in the distance. The house itself is fabulous but this combined with the view sold it to us.” “Since purchasing the house in 2006 we’ve carried out some cosmetic work to it, but in essence the layout is virtually as it was when the property was built, so very traditional. We have a lovely light and airy living room at the front of the property which takes in the wonderful views The large open plan dining room and kitchen(also with a view) is ideal for entertaining friends and family. It’s a spacious and comfortable family home made all the more attractive by its surroundings.” “Another lovely feature of the house is the garden “continues Chris. “To the front is a lawn surrounded by a typical cottage garden and the borders also includes mature hedges and shrubs. Spring bulbs are the first to appear and by midsummer, the garden is a riot of colour. The south facing rear of the property is a complete contrast, consisting of both timber decking and York Stone paving slabs making an ideal outdoor sitting and eating area. We have added various trees and shrubs to soften the edges. I love both gardens. The front is great to indulge my passion for gardening and the back, a low maintenance and private area, an ideal place in which to relax. I have the best of both worlds” “The living room is my favourite part of the house,” says Chris. “We had a window seat built into the bay at the front, so we can sit and admire the views. The multi fuel burning stoves in both the living and dining rooms create a cosy atmosphere on a cold evening” “Whilst our surroundings are very rural we are also very close to several large cities and also lovely villages. We are within easy reach of motorway links, which give access to Leeds, Manchester, Sheffield and Wakefield. The Peak District National park is a fifteen-minute drive away. The countryside is on our doorstep and only a short distance away are historic stately homes such as Wortley and Cannon Hall, Wentworth Castle and Wentworth Woodhouse.” “We’ve decided that the time is right to downsize but it will be hard to leave School House,” says Chris. “We’ll miss the community within Green Moor-right from the start everyone has been so welcoming-the character of the house and those views. It’s more than a house, it’s been our home and that combined with its setting has made it truly unique.” * These comments are the personal views of the current owner and are included as an insight into life at the property.
