Full description

Tenure: Freehold

An attractive stone built semi-detached Victorian villa, situated on one of the most sought after tree lined avenues on the doorstep of Roundhay Park. The property features period character and offers lots of scope and potential for buyers to adapt the accommodation to suit their own tastes and requirements.
The property is set back from the roadside and has a long driveway affording ample off road parking with a garage and shed, and a lovely long rear garden which has the advantage of being south facing and is mainly laid to lawn with borders of mature trees and shrubbery. A ground floor entrance vestibule has an inner door with decorative glass panels which leads through to an entrance hall with original panelled internal doors, staircase to the first floor with original balustrade and panelling below, high ceiling and cornicing. The sitting room currently has an en-suite built into the corner (done previously for a dependant relative) however a buyer would probably want to remove this to re-create the original reception space as the cornicing is still in place. To the rear is a formal dining room/additional reception room and a spacious breakfast kitchen. Off the first floor landing are two double bedrooms both with decorative fireplace surrounds, a single bedroom/study, a bathroom and separate W.C, with an additional room which is currently used as a laundry but could be re-converted back into a single bedroom. On the second floor are three further bedrooms all with period cast iron fireplaces. The basement has been converted to provide versatile additional family living space, or to be utilised as a 'granny flat' as there is both internal and external access. There is a hallway, two rooms, a shower room and utility/kitchen which has an original cast iron range as a decorative feature.
The highly regarded residential suburb of Roundhay has long been popular with buyers of all ages who appreciate the character of the area and leafy tree lined avenues. Extensive amenities and a wide range of shops, popular restaurants, cafe bars, designer boutiques and supermarkets are within convenient access on Oakwood Parade, Street Lane, Moortown Corner, and the cosmopolitan 'village' of Chapel Allerton which is also close by. Leafy Roundhay Park offers many recreational amenities including parkland walks, the lakes, the sweeping lawns and sports grounds on Soldiers Field, tennis courts, pretty Canal Gardens and Tropical World which is a particularly popular attraction with children.
