DELIGHTFULLY LOCATED in this QUIET LITTLE-KNOWN, SEMI-"BACKWATER" position approximately one third of a mile from the Main Street of the sought after Wharfedale village of Pool, an outstanding and rare opportunity to purchase this MOST IMPRESSIVE, INDIVIDUAL, DOUBLE FRONTED DETACHED RESIDENCE in a slightly elevated position for outlook and window privacy. This LOVELY HOME, which, BENEFITS FROM VERY TASTEFUL IMPROVEMENTS, offers BEAUTIFULLY PRESENTED FAMILY ACCOMMODATION including FOUR DOUBLE BEDROOMS (master with luxury en-suite shower room and Juliet style balcony) and is also fitted and appointed to a high standard. The BESPOKE FITTED BREAKFAST-DINING KITCHEN and the SMART, FULLY TILED BATHROOM are MOST APPEALING FEATURES OF THE PROPERTY - which also has the advantage of an ENLARGED DRIVEWAY providing EXCELLENT CAR STANDING/TURNING SPACE, and a TWO CAR GARAGE. There are VERY PLEASANT GARDENS including a PRIVATE, ENCLOSED, SOUTHERLY FACING SUN-TRAP REAR GARDEN, and the property is approached via a LOVELY LONG HORSE CHESTNUT TREE LINED ROAD (providing access to only three other individual properties) further enhancing the appeal of the location and although the address is Arthington Lane, the property is over 100 paces set back from the road! 

AMENITIES: The property is within easy walking distance of delightful countryside and yet is ideally located for comfortable daily commuting, by car, to the commercial centres of Leeds and Bradford and also the former spa towns of Harrogate and Ilkley. The popular and active historic market town of Otley - which has an excellent choice of shopping facilities including both Waitrose and Sainsbury's supermarkets, and other family amenities, is approximately 10-15 minute's drive by car. Leeds and Bradford Airport is about 15-20 minute's drive away. The popular Church of England Primary School is within relatively easy walking distance and barely a quarter of a mile away. There is also a cricket ground, tennis courts and Village Hall within Pool-in-Wharfedale and beautiful riverside walks and rambles are within relatively easy walking distance and provide an abundance of birdlife and wildlife to observe and enjoy in a lovely setting. The White Hart restaurant and public house in Pool village, is about 15 minute's walk and in the other direction The Wharfedale Inn and restaurant in Arthington, is a similar distance.  

DIRECTIONS: FROM OTLEY TOWN CENTRE (by the traffic lights) turn into Boroughgate, continuing into Cross Green and on to the road to Pool. Proceed forward until reaching the junction by the petrol station and turn right into Pool-in-Wharfedale village Main Street and about 300 yards along at the mini-roundabout, fork left by the "White Hart" public house onto Arthington Lane. Continue on Arthington Lane for approximately one third of a mile and immediately beyond the sub station, turn right into the "Private Road" (see the large Horse Chestnut tree on the small grassed island), when Limekiln House is then about 100 paces along. 

ALTERNATIVE APPROACH: FROM THE MAIN LEEDS/OTLEY ROAD (A660) by the traffic lights at the "Dyneley Arms" public house turn down Pool Bank - in the opposite direction to the airport and at the bottom - by the mini-roundabout and opposite the "White Hart" turn right onto Arthington Lane then as above.
