** OPEN VIEW Friday 30th June from 10.00 am to 11.00 noon ** A most appealing two bedroom apartment offering stylish accommodation within this landmark period building - parking and access to extensive communal gardens - within walking distance of the moor and town centre amenities.

The history of Wells House dates back to Victorian times and the growth of Ilkley as a fashionable spa town when this magnificent Grade II listed building was constructed in a commanding position on the edge of Ilkley Moor, with stunning views to the south and across Wharfedale. For a time the home of Ilkley College, the property was transformed at the turn of the millennium by Magellan Residential who converted the then redundant building into the high calibre apartments of today.

Apartment 27 is positioned on the lower ground floor of Wells House, and could readily appeal to a broad range of prospective buyers including professionals, those seeking a manageable retirement home, or even overseas buyers who require a UK base. The accommodation is comprehensively equipped with stylish kitchen and bathroom fittings - the former incorporating a broad range of integrated appliances. There is extensive wiring for a home network system; heat recovery system; en-suite shower room to the master bedroom which - along with the second double bedroom - has integrated wardrobes; whilst more detailed touches include the extensive use of chrome finished light switches. A rarity within Wells House is the ability to move directly from the three principal rooms through double glazed French doors to a sheltered and private terrace from where steps lead to a delightful communal roof garden with an expansive lawn, comprehensive shrub planting, and paved seating areas.

Ilkley is set amidst some of Yorkshire's most impressive countryside with the River Wharfe and the rugged moors offering many an opportunity for rural pursuits and beautiful walks. The town is well known for its first class shopping along with cultural and recreational amenities, whilst for those who need to travel the town centre railway station provides regular services throughout the day into Leeds and Bradford, with frequent onward connections from the former onto London Kings Cross. An international airport is just some 10 miles distant.

From our office in the centre of town proceed up Wells Road, passing over a cattle grid by the Darwin Gardens. Take the next right hand turn towards Wells House and park to the left hand side.

The tenure of the property is leasehold being held on the balance of a 999 year lease, ownership of the freehold being vested in the apartment owners. An annual service charge is payable on a quarterly basis. For the calendar year 2016 the service charge equates to £840 per quarter and covers buildings insurance, external maintenance, maintenance of the internal communal areas, gardens and window cleaning. Will interested parties please note that there is a presumption against the keeping of dogs at Wells House.
