A RARE AND EXCITING OPPORTUNITY TO PURCHASE A HIGHLY INDIVIDUAL DETACHED PREDOMINITELY STONE PROPERTY WITH EXTENSIVE GARDENS SITUATED IN THIS SOUGHT-AFTER AND VERY CONVENIENT RESIDENTIAL LOCATION IN FAR HEADINGLEY, A FEW MINUTES WALK TO LOCAL SHOPS, PUBS, RESTAURANTS, COTTAGE ROAD CINEMA, SCHOOLS AND THE LOVELY HOLLIES PARK.
This wonderful family home is now in need of general modernisation/updating but represents a fantastic opportunity for discerning buyers to upgrade and potentially alter the layout to suit individual requirements, subject to relevant consents. We understand this substantial and very characterful property was built around 1876 and is now in one of North Leeds' many leafy conservation areas.
The property enjoys an elevated position with the front and side elevations having lots of feature stone detail and twin bay windows to the front enjoying attractive leafy views. The very generous accommodation comprises an entrance porch leading to a welcoming hallway with three reception rooms off, a lounge, dining room and snug all with feature cornicing, high ceilings and fireplaces, an office/store room, a separate w/c, a kitchen leading to a pantry/potting room and an orangery/garden room/Victorian greenhouse (now in need of considerable repair). There is an extensive basement with two very spacious rooms offering excellent potential for conversion, ideal for any number of uses. Upstairs, there are four double bedrooms, the master bedroom having an en-suite shower room with additional access onto the landing but must offer great potential to turn into a full en-suite or dressing room; a large house bathroom w/c and a further fifth bedroom with en-suite w/c. Most of the bedrooms also have wash basins. The sixth bedroom resides on the top floor together with a loft room with access to the remaining roof space on either side.
Externally, the wonderful enclosed gardens provide a good degree of privacy with a generously-sized lawn and an extensive range and variety of mature planting and fruit trees, 'secret' meandering pathways and a large strip of land running from the front to the rear boundary, ideal for an orchard or vegetable garden. To the rear of the property, there is an unusual detached garage with a mezzanine level and a small store room underneath, accessed by a gated drive leading to Glebe Terrace, a single track private road. There is also an outside w/c to the rear of the property.
This has to be a unique and exciting opportunity to further enhance this charming and substantial home, as it's not often properties in this location with the potential, size and character come to the market, so we highly recommend early inspection.
