7 bedroom detached house for sale
Elmete Avenue, Roundhay, Leeds, West Yorkshire
Summercourt is a welcoming, well-proportioned and light family home with plenty of character.
With almost 4,000 sq.ft, of internal accommodation and quiet gardens of 1/4 acre, this stunning 1901 built and well maintained property retains many original features including leaded windows set in stone mullions.
Through imposing gateways and a particularly attractive garden, the front door is approached by a stone pathway or via the driveway. This is of good length and leads to a double-length detached garage to the rear of the property.
The house is accessed through double doors and a foyer into a spacious, light and welcoming reception hall with oak flooring, three quarter height wood panelling and stone fireplace. The hall provides direct access to a large sitting room with feature fireplace; a generous east facing oak floored dining room; a well fitted kitchen/breakfast room with solid maple "Winchmore" units and a recessed wood burning stove; and a cloakroom.
From the breakfast room, there is a large conservatory with under floor heating, with doors to the patio and beautifully laid out garden with double length garage and greenhouse. Alternatively, pass through a utility room with generous storage and the "servants door" back into the dining room. Dry cellars are below, with the newly replaced "Ideal" condensing boiler.
An attractive staircase (or alternative servants stairway) leads up to a landing area, from which there are two generous bedrooms, one with en-suite and the other with potential; three further bedrooms and a bathroom. Stairs continue to the self-contained second floor, presently with two double bedrooms and a bathroom and access to the loft. There are good-sized fitted wardrobes/storage facilities in all but two of the bedrooms.
Summercourt enjoys the facilities of town and city with the feel of the countryside with Roundhay Park entrance opposite the bottom of Elmete Avenue and a smaller open park area at its top. Nearby Oakwood Clock has buoyant restaurants catering for all tastes, with a thriving farmers market each month. Roundhay St. John's C of E Primary School is at the top of the road, Roundhay School Technology College is in walking distance and Leeds Grammar School is just a short drive away.
