Tenure: Leasehold

A beautifully appointed second floor apartment positioned within a magnificent landmark building - enjoying stunning views towards Ilkley Moor and down Wharfedale. Luxurious two double bedroom en-suite accommodation with a pair of outstanding reception rooms, an impressive breakfast kitchen, secure undercover parking and communal gardens. An elegant quality home in a beautiful location!

Communal entrance hall and impressive glazed central atrium; lift and stair access to the second floor; private and spacious reception hall; elegant living room with magnificent moorland views; dining room with far reaching aspects down Wharfedale; high quality kitchen with a range of Seimens appliances and limestone features; a pair of double bedrooms - both with fitted furniture and luxury en-suite shower rooms off. Outside - wonderful landscaped communal gardens with sweeping lawns, terraces, tarns and woodland. Two undercover parking spaces.

The history of Wells House is inextricably linked to the growth of Ilkley as a fashionable Victorian spa town - the building having been originally built as a hotel on the edge of the beautiful moors, close to White Wells. In 2003 the building was subject to comprehensive redevelopment undertaken by Magellan Homes which saw the creation of 27 luxury apartments with apartment 14 enjoying what is regarded as one of the finest positions in the building, being located on the second floor and with dual aspects down Wharfedale and to the south towards the moors.

Offering unashamedly luxurious accommodation and presented to an impressively high standard, the apartment provides spacious living, centred around a split level reception hall, with a pair of well-proportioned reception rooms; breakfast kitchen with a comprehensive range of Seimens integrated appliances and limestone features; and a pair of double bedrooms - both with stylish en-suite shower rooms off with white suites and travertine wall and floor tiling - the latter with thermostatically controlled heating.

The sale of Apartment 14 offers an excellent opportunity to acquire a high calibre home within a much admired location - one which provides ready access to the rugged moors, whilst Ilkley's town centre is a short walk away and is home to a comprehensive range of retail, social and recreational amenities complimented by a broad choice of sports clubs and some wonderful moorland and riverside walks. Ilkley forms an ideal commuter base with good road access to business centres as far apart as Leeds, Bradford, Harrogate and the East Lancashire conurbation. The town centre railway station provides regular connections into both local cities, whilst from Leeds there are frequent services throughout the day to London Kings Cross. An international airport is only some 11 miles distant.

From our office in the centre of town proceed up Wells Road and cross over the cattle grid where the moor opens up to the left. Turn right onto Brodrick Drive. Wells House will be clearly seen directly ahead.
