SIZE is all important in this end-terrace house in Town Gate, Sowerby.

Fairly modest when viewed from the roadside, it opens up like Doctor Who’s TARDIS so that its relative dimensions offer space for a large family.

It boasts five bedrooms, with the master bedroom loftily perched in the attic, where a dormer window offers far-reaching views.

There’s another bedroom and a shower room on the second floor with three more bedrooms on the first floor, where the house bathroom is situated.

No expense has been spared on the ground floor, either. The light and airy living room retains traditional features including a Victorian-style open fire and ceiling rose.

The separate sitting room/dining room is more than 12ft square and has an inglenook-style open fireplace with a door that leads to the landscaped garden.

A range of stylish fitted units in the kitchen adds to the attraction of this elegant home. Traditional elements - a Belfast-style sink and a Rangemaster oven - sit alongside a host of modern conveniences including integrated dishwasher, washing machine and fridge with separate freezer.

An attractive slate-tiled floor and solid oak worktops make this a kitchen to be envied.

For families who need extra storage space - perhaps for fishing or camping gear, cycles or toys - there’s a huge basement measuring 19ft in length, with a vaulted ceiling.

Outside there’s plenty of parking alongside the house on the unadopted road and a low-maintenance enclosed garden with decking.

The house is for sale with Peter David Properties Ltd, Wharf Street, Sowerby Bridge, for offers over £189, 950.
