Park­lands, 4 Busker Lane, Skel­man­thorpe Price: £620,000 Con­tact: Si­mon Blyth Tel: 01484 689689, www.si­mon­blyth.co.uk THIS bun­ga­low was once an im­pres­sive three-storey pe­riod home and its sale of­fers the chance to res­ur­rect the orig­i­nal house.

It was bought by the late own­ers in 1939 and in 1966 they de­cided to re­move the top two floors to cre­ate a sin­gle-storey dwelling.

It has cel­lars, an en­trance hall, sit­ting room, for­mer sec­ond sit­ting room (now bed­room one with en-suite), din­ing room, rear lobby, w.c, kitchen, in­ner hall, two fur­ther bed­rooms, bath­room, pantry, dou­ble garage and gar­dens.

The long lost first floor had four bed­rooms and bath­room, and at the at­tic level there was a box room and three fur­ther bed­rooms.

Plans and pho­to­graphs of the house as it was are avail­able and plan­ning per­mis­sion has been sought to re­in­state the lost half of the house.

High Bax­ton­howe and an artist’s im­pres­sion of the house for which there is per­mis­sion to build at the site. Right, Park­lands is now a bun­ga­low but there is per­mis­sion to recre­ate the miss­ing storeys.
