Full description

Tenure: Leasehold

An attractively proportioned two bedroom third floor apartment with lift access. Forming part of the much acclaimed Abbeyfield integrated care development - an ideal town centre retirement home.

Abbeyfield Court is a detached block of purpose built apartments, forming part of a pioneering integrated care development for the over 65s, operated by the Ilkley Abbeyfield Society Ltd. The apartments are set in the heart of town and offer independent living as well as access (chargeable) to the communal facilities of adjacent Grove House which include a restaurant and activity rooms. There are extensive communal grounds within the scheme, whilst gated access leads to a parking court within which Apartment 13 has an undercover allocated space.

Positioned on the top floor, and with both lift and stair access, Apartment 13 enjoys what is arguably one of the very best positions within the development having the benefit of wonderful westerly views across town towards the moors beyond, whilst a pair of French doors within the living room open onto a very pleasant south facing balcony. The apartment is entered through a spacious reception hall with useful storage cupboards, and provides a choice of either a two bedroom layout, or alternatively the second double bedroom can be used either as a dining room or study. The living room has dual aspects as well as a feature fireplace, whilst the kitchen has been renewed by the present vendors and includes comprehensive storage as well as integrated appliances. The master bedroom also has the advantage of dual aspects - to the south and west - as well as a range of fitted wardrobes and direct access to the upgraded shower room with four piece suite.

Ilkley itself occupies a stunning setting in the heart of Wharfedale, bordered to two sides by dramatic moorland whilst riverside parks border the meandering River Wharfe. The town has a comprehensive range of retail, social and recreational amenities, many of which are within comfortable walking distance of the Abbeyfield complex, whilst the nearby station provides frequent services throughout the day into the local cities of Leeds and Bradford.

From our offices on The Grove proceed in a westerly direction and after 100 yards or so turn left onto Riddings Road by the Nat West Bank. Proceed up Riddings Road and the pedestrian access to Abbeyfield Court will be seen to the right hand side shortly after the police station.
