Approached through private woodland, the driveway opens up through timber gates to reveal the hidden house, where anyone could feel sheltered from the bustle of city life and all that it entails.

Harrison Spring boasts original period features such as exposed timbers and an inglenook fireplace to the lounge, all of which add to its character.  
A main reception hall, overlooked by a galleried landing, has a brick chimney breast and multi fuel stove. 

The light and bright lounge has windows to three aspects, with original timbers to walls and ceiling, a feature fireplace and exposed wooden flooring. 

Floor to ceiling windows light up the dining room, and the kitchen too enjoys lovely views over the gardens.

Another property in the midst of rolling countryside but within easy distance of Sheffield is Belle Royd Farm at Thurlstone.

Dating back to the eighteenth century, and sited within two acres with private gardens, this country home offers extensive, stunning greenery rather than buildings from its windows.

There is the added potential of a small, adjoining cottage.

 Local services and amenities are within easy travel, as is the market town of Penistone and the M1 motorway.

A staircase leads from the welcoming entrance hall, and also leads through to the lounge and sitting room, and the dining room.

There are four reception rooms. Light floods in to the lounge through generous windows , to highlight  features such as exposed beams and an inglenook style fireplace.

 French doors open out to the rear garden. The sitting room has a front window with a stunning vista, while a snug has a back staircase to the first floor. The dining room has access to the rear garden. 

The living kitchen could be the hub of the home with plenty of light and space, panoramic views and French doors to the garden terrace. it is well fitted out with granite work surfaces.

 A utility room is  also a divide to the adjoining cottage, with spiral staircase to a first-floor office. 

 There could be multiple uses for the one-bedroomed cottage which can be used as part of the main house or can stand independently.

It could be ideal for use as a self-contained guest, teenager or granny suite, but carries potential as a holiday let or similar should the owner wish to pursue such a course.

Also on the market with Fine and Country, Belle Royd Farm is for sale at £895,000.​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​
