This superb 4 / 5 bedroom house in the Yorkshire town of Castleford is an outstanding example of Art Deco architecture that has been wonderfully maintained by the present owners.

Built to the designs of  the architects Blenkinsopp & Scratchard in 1934, 'Chatelaine' was commissioned by the physician Dr Innes Pragnell who used it as her home and surgery until the 1950s. The house retains many original features including terrazzo flooring, Japanese oak parquet flooring and sunken black bath with mosaic tiling.

Accommodation on the first floor includes a master bedroom with an attached dressing room and three further double bedrooms. Accommodation on the  ground floor includes a living / dining room, kitchen and a fifth bedroom / study. On the upper floor there is a sun room that opens out onto a large roof terrace of about 100m2. The house has off street parking located behind an electric gate. There is a paved garden to the side and a grassed garden area.

The house is located on Lower Oxford Street in Castleford and is well placed for the train and bus station and the shops and services of the town centre. Within 1 mile is Xscape a sport, leisure, dining and shopping complex.

Castleford is perhaps best known as the home of the fashion label Burberry and the birthplace of Henry Moore, whose work features extensively at the nearby Hepworth Gallery and the Yorkshire Sculpure Park located in Wakefield. Wakefield and the nearby city of Leeds are 20 minutes away by car.
