8 bedroom detached house for sale

Heathcote, Kings Road, Ilkley, West Yorkshire, LS29

Guide Price £1,995,000

Property Description

Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Constructed between 1906 and 1908, no expense was spared when it was built and Sir Edward Lutyens is believed to have remarked 'this house was for a very rich man who could not spend money: until he met me.' A true statement house, it was designed to emphasise the hard earned wealth and entrepreneurial spirit of the man who commissioned it - John Thomas Hemmingway.

Heathcote was in private ownership until 1958 when it was bought and utilised by N G Bailey as its company headquarters. Whilst in corporate ownership for well over 50 years, the property has been sensitively maintained and retains some fantastic character features.

The sale of Heathcote provides a once in a lifetime opportunity to acquire an important part of Ilkley's history and heritage. Huge potential exists to return the property to its original glory, creating what would arguably be the best house in Ilkley and certainly one of the largest. It offers almost 12000 sq ft (1114 sq m) of living space, arranged over three floors.
