Property description

Tenure: Leasehold

Lady Ida Lodge will offer independent living with access to on-site care for people over the age of 65, with 34 one and two bed apartments available for shared ownership. Lady Ida Lodge is located on Oak Park Lane, in the suburb of Cookridge, which lies in an established residential area of northwest Leeds in West Yorkshire. There is a good range of local amenities within Cookridge, including a supermarket, post office, hairdressers, pharmacy, doctors surgery, dentist and more. The area is full of heritage, with the history of Lady Ida Lodge dating back to 1869 when the “Hospital for the Convalescent Poor in Leeds” was opened in Cookridge. Built in a Gothic vernacular style, the hospital then consisted of the main building and the lodge, which were both Grade II listed buildings. In 1888 a second set of buildings were opened called the Ida Convalescent Hospital, named in memory of Ida North. Although Cookridge is a great location for a quieter pace of life, it is well-connected to Leeds city centre, which is only six miles away with a bus stop located 0.1 miles from Lady Ida Lodge and Horsforth train station 1.3 miles from the development. The location is also convenient for journeys to Bradford which is nine miles away, and Leeds Bradford Airport which is only three miles from Lady Ida Lodge.
