Property Description

Full description

Tenure: Freehold

It is said often about period properties that 'they just don't build them like this anymore' and the saying very much applies in the case of this impressive Edwardian semi-detached family home. With original features, character and space in abundance, Milford House, having six double bedrooms, is situated on Billams Hill, arguably one of finest groups of houses in Otley, and offers substantial living accommodation over three floors. The convenient location and proximity to Otley town centre; the grand reception hall, with Charles Rennie Mackintosh-esque stained glass detail; the three reception rooms, the sitting room having an inglenook fireplace complete with wood burner; master suite with dressing room and en suite; and the simply jaw dropping dimensions, make this an opportunity not to missed. There are well-stocked gardens to both front and rear, as well as valuable off road parking. Do not miss the opportunity to purchase this substantial period property at this new significantly reduced price.
