Originally designed by the architect A F Webb alongside other major buildings in the area, Oakdale Community Hospital was opened in 1914 to care for miners and their families. The hospital closed in 2011 and was taken into private ownership and converted into two houses. The original Grade II listed building was extended during the 1980's and now offers substantial size family accommodation whilst still retaining many of the original design features. The versatile accommodation set over two floors also has permission to convert the extension into a self-contained annexe that would be ideal for multi-generational living.
The current owners were attracted to the home because of its semi-rural location with stunning views to the front, the size of the gardens and its easy access to local amenities and major road networks. Upgraded substantially over the past five years, the home offers accommodation across the main building and the extension with the main building comprising entrance hall, impressive drawing room, dining room, two bedrooms (one with en-suite), living room and study/office (both of which could be utilised as further bedroom accommodation) to the ground floor. To the first floor there is a master bedroom with access to a walk-in dressing room, a further bedroom and large bathroom. The extension is now home to a magnificent extensive kitchen/breakfast room (fitted in 2017), shower room, utility room, gym/double bedroom. The home has double and triple glazing, data points to all rooms and partial underfloor heating.
