A Grade II Listed cottage, thought to be one of Bradford’s oldest homes, that has been painstakingly restored to create a contemporary home that’s full of period charm, is for sale with Dacre, Son & Hartley.
Dean House Cottage is in a semi-rural location in Allerton and was built in 1605, originally forming part of one large house that has now been divided into three homes.
The cottage benefits from a modern dining kitchen and spacious lounge on the ground floor, with two generous double bedrooms that both have en-suite bathrooms on the first floor. There is also a useful cellar area and outside there is a front garden, rear patio and parking for two vehicles.
Matthew Fox, branch manager at Dacre, Son & Hartley’s Saltaire office, said: “Dean House Cottage has been carefully restored in recent years and is now a modern home that also benefits from a wealth of history and character features, including exposed beams and trusses, chamfered mullioned windows and stone feature fireplaces.
“We recently sold the adjoining house, which is now being modernised, but originally the three cottages were built as one grand house, which is widely believed to be Bradford’s oldest inhabited home. The property was built by a highly respected local man, Robert Deane, and one of the date stones on the property bears his initials. When Robert died in 1636, records show the inventory of his personal goods were valued at £184, which was a fortune at the time!”
Matthew continued: “Dean House Cottage is situated in an elevated position, on the edge of the popular village of Allerton, and enjoys panoramic views across the valley. The village offers a range of shops and amenities, recreational areas, and a well-respected primary school, as well as being within easy commuting distance of Keighley, Bingley, Bradford and Leeds, so it will appeal to a wide range of buyers.”
Dean House Cottage has a guide price of £250,000. For more details contact Dacre, Son & Hartley on 01274 581794 or click here for further information.
