Property description

Tenure: Freehold

Well; this house is certainly bound to set pulses racing. It certainly did mine! These are some of the words that sprang to mind at my very first visit...Beautifully presented...stylish...attractive...impressive...tasteful... and that's just the owner! No, seriously...this is a gem of a house that just keeps on shining. It is obvious that the current owner has flair and imagination and has spent a lot of thought, time and money, planning how best to improve their home. I must say, they have done a brilliant job creating a stunning family home by the addition of fabulous extensions that are in keeping with the main house and through an imaginative programme of modernisation and improvements to very high standards, to create a feel and vision that is way better than any show home!

The decor is beautiful, the bathrooms are superior. The ground floor living accommodation is to die for. There is a lovely entrance hall, a 5 metre living room, a modern cloakroom/w.c, and wait until you see the side extension that provides for a fitted and equipped 6 x 5 metre "L" shaped dining kitchen that has an amazing WOW factor and... S,S,S...sumptuous , size and style. Great for relaxation and for entertaining internally and externally, as there is access directly into the sizeable rear garden that brings with it a feel of calm and tranquility, particularly, as across the no-through road, there is National Trust woodland.

TO THE FIRST FLOOR there are 3 bedrooms and a modern bathroom, whilst to the SECOND FLOOR, there is a superb master bedroom which has a rather swish en-suite and has far reaching views to the front and woodland to the rear. A gas C.H. system and double glazing comes as standard.

Being set back from the roadside at the front, the property is not directly overlooked by houses opposite and benefits from having a communal grassed area directly in front. Where this house truly excels, is at the back. It is much better to access this property from the back, via Hospital Lane, (currently a no-through-road) particularly as the garage is sited there and has the benefit of additional driveway parking for several cars. Like the kitchen, the back garden is to die for, and with it backing onto woodland, it is great for those who enjoy outdoor living and entertaining with a good degree of privacy.

Now for the amenities...The Cookridge area is considered to be popular leafy suburb within North Leeds. There are lots of different sizes and shapes of shops of all kinds ranging from supermarkets at Holt Park and Horsforth to the traditional corner shops, just about everywhere. Doctors, Dentists, and schools for children of all ages are catered for, within the immediate vicinity. Being on the edge of the countryside, there are numerous recreational facilities in proximity, and Horsforth and Cookridge golf clubs are closest. Golden Acre Park and the famous Roundhay Park with its' twin lakes are excellent places to visit. Oh, and don't forget The Canal Gardens and the tennis courts too. Game set and, match. For those of you who wish to move at a faster pace of life, gyms and sports clubs too. If you throw into the mix, nice pubs, restaurants, and wine bars there is more than enough going on to suit most palates. For commuters, there are regular bus services, good road and rail links (Horsforth station) as well as the famous Leeds and Bradford International airport.

So... here we have a a fabulous family home that Ladies... if it were a diamond ring, you would be proud to show it off to all your friends and family. Well worth viewing in my opinion. I am not sure that there is a better house for the money on the market, but I would say that, wouldn't I? Ladies and gents, add this to your viewing list, book your viewing slot, start your engines and race round to see for yourself. You be the judge. I don't think you will be me, I'm an Estate Agent!
