Property Overview

Here's a chance to buy a lovely building that has been used as a cafe and a beauty salon with a two bed flat above, or convert it back to a home complete with a hidden private garden.

The Chimes is located in Hemsworth, a small market town just off the main road to Wakefield. Ideally located for access to the A1M, Doncaster, Rotherham and Barnsley it's a popular area with a water park, Nostell Priory and beautiful countryside around the Heronry Water Park. There are many different schools including Grove Lea Primary School, West End Academy, Sacred Hearts, St Helens Primary School and Hemsworth Arts and Community Academy. The town centre has a range of local shops, a large Tesco plus the market on Tuesday, Friday and Saturdays.

The house is a stone built traditional house in the centre of Hemsworth. It's directly opposite the beautiful church with bell tower and thus the name "The Chimes" when it was used as a coffee shop. The property has had a variety of uses and could continue as ground floor business premises with a two bedroom apartment on the first floor, or, subject to permissions, you may want to convert it to a four bedroom house over two floors or perhaps include a "granny" or teenage annexe.

The Chimes was last used as a beauty salon and the ground floor has been subdivided (by stud walling) to the following configuration - one large central room, three smaller treatment rooms, a kitchen, and, a shower room - however, it could be returned to its original configuration without major structural work.

The ground floor has an entry porch area leading into the larger ground floor room. This has external windows and a suspend ceiling with spotlighting affixed. From this room the other three smaller rooms are accessed. All have natural light , radiators and suspended ceiling and lighting. In addition there is a kitchen area and a separate shower room.

From the ground floor rear door, you take a short path to an area of a mature garden. This has well-established planting and was a very popular area to serve teas and coffees when the premises were used as a coffee/tea room.

The upstairs is accessed from a staircase leading off the large downstairs room. This leads you up to the two bedrooms, large lounge, kitchen and bathroom.

The lounge is a substantial size and very impressive. Most of the walls are painted original stonework and there are exposed effect beams to add to the charm. The window looks out onto the beautiful church opposite and there's a charming fireplace that has the potential to be brought back into use. There's a useful storage cupboard off from the lounge area and a doorway leading through to the master bedroom.

The Master bedroom is also a substantial room with beam effect ceiling and painted stone walls. There's more than enough room for the largest of beds and furnishings plus a window which looks out onto the church opposite.

The kitchen/breakfast room is located off the landing. There's an extensive range of kitchen units and a separate larder cupboard providing ample storage. Fitted into the kitchen base units are an integrated oven, hob and 1 1/2 bowl sink.

Also off the upper landing is the bathroom which comprises of white bath, sink and hand basin. The central heating boiler is installed in a cupboard off the bathroom.

The final room on this floor is the second double bedroom. This room also looks out to the church opposite

Although the property has no on-site parking the current owners advise that they have previously had an arrangement with the nearby pub to use their car park. The new owners would need to arrange this directly with the pub owner.

Energy Performance Certificate (EPCs)

Energy Performance Certificates (EPCs) give information on how to make your home more energy efficient and reduce your energy costs. All homes bought, sold or rented require an EPC. EPCs carry ratings that compare the current energy efficiency and estimated costs of energy use with potential figures that your home could achieve. Potential figures are calculated by estimating what the energy efficiency and energy costs could be if energy saving measures were put in place. The rating measures the energy efficiency of your home using a grade from ‘A’ to ‘G’. An ‘A’ rating is the most efficient, while ‘G’ is the least efficient. The average efficiency grade to date is ‘D’. All homes are measured using the same calculations, so you can compare the energy efficiency of different properties.
