Location - Set within gated grounds, this impressively proportioned, intuitively laid out three bedroom cottage (a massive 582 sq ft larger than a modern three bed) sits in an unusually idyllic, secluded spot. It is within a short stroll of the historic villages of Thackley and Idle and their many new bars, restaurants and independent shops, their welcoming communities and canal and woodland walks. Close by are Saltaire, Baildon, Calverley, Guiseley and Horsforth and the new Apperley Bridge train station (with free parking) allowing direct commuting into Leeds and Bradford city centres in 10 minutes facilitating high speed direct trains to London, with Leeds Bradford Airport 15 minutes away (Booth House is nowhere near the flight path). The neighbouring primary school is rated ‘Outstanding in all areas’ and the other highly regarded pre, primary and secondary schools are close by.

Grounds - The large plot comprises ENCLOSED GARDENS making them very dog and family-friendly, a FORMAL COURTYARD GARDEN with young fruit trees and space to sit to enjoy the last of the evening sun and a SOUTH-FACING, incredibly tranquil, COTTAGE GARDEN with well-stocked flowerbeds, newly turfed lawns and a York stone-flagged DINING AREA, looking out onto the exceptionally private, tree-covered vista beyond. Whilst not detached, this property certainly feels as though it might be.

Period Features - As well as working well for modern living with a touch of luxury, the property is bursting with restored PERIOD FEATURES including: exposed beams, wooden and stone-flagged floors, galleried landing, Victorian stained glass, mullioned windows, inglenook fireplace, unusually high ceilings, cornicing and a fine example of an 18th century Georgian curiosities cabinet. In the oldest part of the house, is the vaulted wine cellar/music room/snug believed to date from the 1600s.

Potential For Additional Accommodation - The loft is great for storage but may have the potential to be converted, subject to the necessary consents. Similarly, the former stables, now garaging and potting shed, would make a stunning annex suite / gym / studio if required. The outbuildings are NOT considered by the Council to be listed, making this an easier process, only subject to the other usual consents.
