AN indoor swimming pool and a spacious orangery are features of this striking detached house, set in 1.25 acres of parkland.
Churchfield House, at 21 Rotherham Road, Eckington, Sheffield S21, has been recently extended and refurbished and is on the market at £1,150,000.
Despite its rural setting, the four-bedroom detached property is within easy reach of local shops and amenities in Eckington, and also for access to Sheffield city centre and the motorway network.
The front door opens into an entrance hall with full length window and access to a lift. There is a cloakroom with wc and a door leading down to a cellar with quarry tiled floor.
A study or library features stylish shelving, a stone-pillared fireplace and controls for surround-sound speaker systems.
A drawing room has a marble fireplace with living flame gas fire and doors to a spacious orangery with underfloor heating and French windows to the garden.
The new extension includes a dining kitchen and family room, fitted with bespoke limed oak units, dual-fuel Aga, natural stone flooring and integrated equipment including a dishwasher, fridge and freezer.
An adjoining leisure complex includes a heated pool with feature arched windows, cloakroom, changing room and utility room.
A mahogany staircase leads up to a first-floor landing off which are two en-suite double bedrooms. More stairs lead to two further double bedrooms and a family bathroom with wc. There is planning permission for two more en-suite bedrooms in the attic roof space.
The house stands in almost 1.25 acres, with extensive landscaped parkland and formal gardens. A sunken patio is thought to be the original site of a windmill. A winding gravelled driveway with turning circle leads to a garage. There is also a timber summer house and a garden store.
