Rightstone Lodge has been cleverly constructed to mimic a grand old house typical of an earlier century but it was, in fact, built in far more modern times.

An impressive five/six bedroom house, set within a large private plot on Kiveton Lane,Todwick, it offers spacious luxury accommodation over three floors.

Highlights include an extensive master bedroom suite, a generously proportioned dining kitchen, formal dining room, lounge, orangery, swimming pool, sunroom and a large private garden.

It is situated close to open countryside and within good access to local amenities including a comprehensive range of shops, restaurants and public houses.

The house falls within the catchment area for Todwick Primary School and Wales High School and has easily accessible public transport and motorway links.

The property is entered through an impressive door with decorative panels which leads into a grand entrance hall with two cloakroom cupboards and a WC which is fitted with antique-style high-level cistern and a washbasin with traditional taps.

Doors lead to the lounge, formal dining room, study, dining kitchen and orangery.

The formal dining room is light and spacious and is air-conditioned. There is ample space for a full-sized dining table and a coal-effect gas fire with timber mantle and surround is the focal point of the room.

A generously proportioned dining kitchen has Travertine tiled flooring with underfloor heating and is fully fitted with units and granite worktops.

Appliances include an Aga range cooker with two hot plates and four ovens, four-ring Fagor induction hob, integrated dishwasher, integrated microwave and space for an American-style fridge/freezer.

An adjoining utility room also has underfloor heating and provision for an automatic washing machine/tumble dryer.

The kitchen leads to a light and exceptionally spacious air-conditioned orangery with underfloor heating and provision for a wall-mounted television.

The focal point of this lovely room is the decorative fireplace with a timber mantel and decorative marble effect surround and hearth.

From the entrance hall, a staircase with a timber balustrade rises to the first-floor galleried landing with its magnificent painted ceiling, and four of the bedrooms.

There is a master bedroom suite with coal-effect gas fire, sitting room leading out to a balcony, dressing room, master en-suite bathroom, shower room and WC and three further bedrooms, all with their own en-suite bathrooms

On the second floor are two further bedrooms with shower rooms; and a 42ft games room housing a full-size snooker table.

Rightstone Lodge is set behind two gated entrances which open to a large in and out block-paved driveway, which provides ample parking for several vehicles with mature shrub borders and exterior lighting.

The double garage has a bar and seating area with cooler and sink and stairs leading to a storage space which could be converted into living accommodation with the necessary permissions. There is a shower room and WC

From the double garage, an electric roller shutter door opens to the swimming pool which measures (15.7m x 7.6m (51'6" x 24'11")). This, in turn, leads to the sunroom.

To the rear is the well-maintained garden which is mainly laid to lawn.
