A beautifully presented unique Arts and Crafts Edwardian property located in Dobcross occupying a very secluded elevated position within a plot that extends to around 0.79 acre affording a very high degree of privacy and yet is within walking distance of amenities in Dobcross, Uppermill and Diggle, including primary schools (new secondary school) post offices and local shops.

Stoneleigh has been sympathetically and lovingly restored, over the last 25 years by the current owners keeping all the original Arts and Crafts architectural features which are of increasing desirability. Features include all the original walnut woodwork throughout the house including doors, architraves, generous skirting boards, period fire places and fully restored working sash windows.

Access to Stoneleigh is via a long tree lined private driveway from Standedge Road which sweeps round to a private parking area at the front and side of the house. Original stone steeps provide a charming approach to the front entrance.

A magnificent large front door, with original stain glass inset, opens into a vestibule with wood panelled walls and ceiling and with terrazzo floor. This leads to a door and screen with beautiful engraved glass on a theme of tulips which is the original key design feature throughout the house. It leads into a spacious main hallway with a turning staircase to the upper floors. The sitting room, dining room and study all lead off the hallway and feature typically high ceilings and period features including multi-pane sash windows, carved picture rails, decorative ceiling covings and period fire places. The focal point in the sitting room is an Arts and Crafts fireplace surround with feature inset and hearth with open fireplace which is stunning. The dining room has a beautiful oak and copper fireplace and traditional serving hatch to kitchen. The study has a period fireplace, fitted alcove shelving and beautiful wood-framed window surrounds.
Beyond the main hallway a rear hallway gives access to the back door to the garden, a door to a utility area and downstairs cloakroom, a door to the cellar and a door to a spacious kitchen. The kitchen is fitted with built-in original cupboards, a range of units and an AGA. Stone steps lead down to two spacious cellar rooms which have been fully tanked. The first room has an excellent terracotta tiled floor; the larger room with natural light, has a lovely parquet floor, both have been restored to an excellent standard which perfectly complements the property.

To the first floor is a spacious landing with high ceiling and ornate turning staircase rising to the upper floor. There are four double bedrooms with period fireplaces and surrounds. A family bathroom with roll top suite and ample cupboard space completes the living space on this level. The second-floor landing has a large stain glass window and leads to a fifth bedroom with three large Velux windows allowing generous daylight and adjacent shower room, ideal as a guest suite.

Externally, Stoneleigh has a most wonderfully mature setting with well-tended and originally stone landscaped gardens which are attractive and plentifully stocked. There are formal lawned areas at the front with hardwood evergreen screening and private driveway with access to a parking area for several cars. The driveway is flanked with banks of shrubs and grassed areas and this leads to a Yorkshire-flagged terrace ideal for al fresco entertaining. Outbuildings include two substantial outhouses adjoining the kitchen and two large garden sheds and a well-stocked log shed at the upper end of the garden. Beyond this, a ''crazy paving' pathway winds through the garden behind the house leading to a secluded wooded copse and an area prepared for a wild-flower garden. The pathway eventually leads to gated access onto Sandy Lane. There is a new, lined GARAGE with an inspection pit. There is further potential for development of land at this rear-end of the site subject to planning permission.
