The property is approached along a gated pathway giving access to a handful of similar properties. To the right of the pathway, each property has a well presented fore garden and this house is no exception with a well-stocked, easily maintained, cottage garden and with a circular flagged and shale area - ideal for relaxing at the garden table with a cup of tea or your favourite tipple in the afternoon sun. To the left of the pathway, each property has a well-tended vegetable patch. This is just idyllic as there is no passing traffic in front of the cottage. A pathway leads to the front door, opening into a spacious, well-proportioned sitting room with feature, cast iron fireplace and unusual, double glazed, timber, 'V' shaped, bay window, which has aspects over the garden and allows the natural light to flood in. Stripped pine doors and cupboards throughout maintain the cottage feel. On past the inner hallway into the dining kitchen, which has a truly cottage ambiance with a traditional, black enamel range sitting in a feature, brick hearth with hand painted units. A door opens into a rear pantry/porch with access to the rear patio - ideal to catch the evening sun. A pathway gives access to the rear and a further flagged area is perfect for hanging out washing whilst two useful outhouses provide extra storage. Upstairs, the main bedroom is extremely spacious with aspects over the front garden and the second bedroom is ideal as a study or as a bedroom for a small child. Finally, the bathroom features a smartly presented suite comprising a bath with shower over, pedestal basin and w/c.
An early viewing of this charming spot is highly recommended in order to fully appreciate what is on offer here and if you enjoy the Café society that Ilkley has to offer right on your doorstep, then this could be the perfect property for you.

Once the sun has gone over the yard, one can retire to the rear patio that benefits from the evening sun - a great place just to relax or enjoy al fresco entertaining. Wild lavender grows and the scent wafts around on a balmy summer's evening. There are two useful outhouses which give extra storage. A gated wall opens onto a pathway, which gives access to the rear. Once through the gate a garden bench is surrounded by wild nasturtiums and a further flagged area beyond the pathway is ideal for hanging out washing.
