Full description

Tenure: Freehold

An excellent opportunity to purchase an expansive detached bungalow positioned in a substantial plot of approx. 0.9 acres and located on this prestigious lane within the heart of the highly sought after area of Scarcroft.
This home was originally designed and built by the renowned Lord Bellwin and is said to have enjoyed visits from the Iron Lady herself Margaret Thatcher in the 1980's. Now this uniquely designed home is offered to the market once more and undoubtedly provides great potential for further improvements , extension or redevelopment (subject to the necessary planning).
At present the thoughtfully designed accommodation extends to approximately 4250 sq ft and reveals a large reception hallway with guest cloakroom, open into the split level formal entertaining space. There is a rather unique lounge with sunken seating area and large picture windows offering pleasant views over the front gardens and beyond and a formal dining area. Leading from the dining room is a traditional style fitted kitchen incorporating a central island with Belfast sink unit and Lacanche range cooker which is then in turn open into the morning room with patio doors leading onto the rear gardens. Off the kitchen is a sizeable utility room fitted with a range of units with a further side entrance door.
Set away from the living space the sleeping accommodation offers up to five bedrooms. The master bedroom suite is a significant size with a range of fitted furniture and benefits from two dressing rooms and a large en-suite bathroom with contemporary suite. The guest bedroom (or 'Maggie's room' as it is known) has its own walk in wardrobe and ensuite and there are two further bedrooms and a house bathroom. Finally a generous study room or fifth bedroom is positioned at the front of the property once again enjoying the excellent raised aspect.
There is a substantial carriage driveway at the front of the property which in turn leads to an integral triple garage with electric up and over doors. The gardens themselves are well enclosed behind mature trees, hedges and shrubs and offer great privacy from surrounding homes.
Situated along this exclusive lane the property is easily accessible for the nearby suburbs of Moortown, Alwoodley and Oakwood all of which offer quality amenities as well as numerous championship golf courses and The Grammar School at Leeds. The towns of Wetherby and Harrogate, as well as Leeds City centre are also a short drive away and A1/M link is close by, ideal for the national commuter.
