*** Best and final offers invited for Noon 21st October 2016***A finely crafted Victorian family home of considerable presence and style, situated in an enviable position in the heart of town. Elegant, well-planned, five/seven bedroom accommodation with three impressive reception rooms and an extensive, recently converted lower ground floor currently used as a gym and office. Large garage and parking area. Generous south-facing gardens.

Grove Lodge stands proudly at the foot of Grove Road, ideally placed for town centre amenities and with the advantage of open aspects to the front across the town's Memorial Gardens. The property provides undeniably impressive family accommodation, much improved by the present vendors and providing versatile and practical living space set across four floors and retaining many impressive period features. Warmth, comfort and energy-efficiency have also been carefully considered during conversion. Almost all windows are either double or secondary glazed, and each floor is heated by a dedicated gas-fired boiler, allowing different areas of the house to be zoned and heated at different times of the day or night. In addition to elegantly proportioned day rooms positioned off the galleried reception hall, there is excellent lower ground floor living space, currently formatted to provide a lovely office area and a gymnasium with separate shower/wc off - however, thanks to the kitchenette/utility and external access, there is clear scope to replan this area as independent living space to provide more private accommodation for a dependant relative/teenager, subject to any consents. The five double bedrooms set across the first and second floor are generously proportioned, with those to the upper level well suited to the needs of more mature children thanks to a large play/study area which also has its own contemporary styled shower room off, supplementing the characterful house bathroom to the first floor. Unusually for a town centre property Grove Lodge has surprisingly spacious gardens - landscaped to the front, with the rear predominantly lawned and providing a delightful south facing al fresco dining and play area. There is driveway parking for at least a couple of cars to the side of the house as well as an oversized single garage providing additional storage. The former Victorian spa town of Ilkley is set in the heart of Wharfedale amidst some of Yorkshire's most dramatic scenery. The town provides excellent commuter links with many of the region's business centres including Leeds and Bradford, Harrogate and the East Lancashire conurbation. The town's railway station provides regular services throughout the day into both local cities, and from Leeds there are frequent connections to London Kings Cross. A local international airport is just some 10 miles from town. Ilkley is well known for its first class shopping and this is complimented by a comprehensive range of social and recreational amenities including very popular sports clubs which cater for a wide array of tastes. The town also has the benefit of a highly regarded schooling system although there are also private schools for children of all ages within comfortable daily travelling distance. The sale offers a rare and exciting opportunity to acquire a highly desirable and spacious family home within an incredibly convenient location.

Grove Lodge is set at the eastern end of Grove Road. From our office proceed down The Grove and as the road starts to bear right by the Memorial Gardens, continue straight ahead and the property will be seen 50 yards or so beyond The Grove/Grove Road junction.

Galleried reception hall with wc off; elegant drawing room; dual aspect living room; dining room opening into kitchen, the latter having direct access to the outdoor dining terrace/BBQ area protected by Haddonstone pergola. Lower ground floor - gym/playroom/bedroom 6 with garden access; shower room/cloaks; office/bedroom 7 with splay bay; kitchenette/utility. Three first floor double bedrooms; large characterful bathroom and separate wc. Second floor - two further double bedrooms; play/study area; stylish shower room. Outside - driveway parking; oversized single garage; landscaped gardens to front and rear - the latter south facing and providing an appealing amenity.
