Full description

Tenure: Freehold

THE IMPRESSIVE SIZE of this IMPOSING, LARGER STYLE, SEMI-DETACHED RESIDENCE is impossible to assess from the outside and an internal inspection is essential to appreciate the GENEROUS, WELL PROPORTIONED FAMILY ACCOMMODATION - which benefits from a TASTEFUL, DOUBLE STOREY EXTENSION to the side elevation providing VALUABLE ADDITIONAL FAMILY SPACE at both ground and first floor levels and is now different in size and appearance from the adjoining property, creating a degree of individuality. This LOVELY HOME, which, offers AN OUTSTANDING OPPORTUNITY FOR A LARGER GROWING FAMILY, has a very wide impressive frontage in this SOUGHT AFTER CONSERVATION AREA and is in a DELIGHTFUL SETTING - OVERLOOKING ESTABLISHED WOODLAND to the side and rear. THE BEAUTIFULLY PRESENTED ACCOMMODATION, which, reflects our clients' pride and pleasure in ownership, is also tastefully decorated in light mainly neutral schemes and includes THREE RECEPTION ROOMS and FOUR BEDROOMS - one of which has the advantage of AN EN-SUITE SHOWER ROOM, and would be ideal for guests or perhaps for a teenager within the family to have their own private space. To the rear of the property is AN ALMOST FULL WIDTH BALCONY with direct access from both the living-dining room and the breakfast-snack kitchen and has generous space for garden relaxation furniture providing an ideal place to sit and relax and enjoy the interesting variety of birdlife and wildlife in the adjacent woodland. The property, which, also has a very pleasant open outlook up part of Outwood Lane, faces a bungalow on the opposite side of the road - increasing the expanse of skyline and natural light to the front rooms, as well as not being overlooked! The LARGE INTEGRAL GARAGE OF GOOD SQUARISH SHAPE 23'9" x 23'9" (measured internally) should appeal to a car enthusiast although part of the garage offers potential for an "indoor home gym" or hobbies workshop. 

AMENITIES: The property is very conveniently located approximately two thirds of a mile from the North Leeds ring road and also about ten minute's drive from Horsforth railway station - which provides valuable links, for the commuter, to both Leeds and Harrogate. It is also within approximately 25 minute's walking distance (via delightful woodland) of the vibrant Horsforth Town Street, which has excellent local shopping facilities including a Morrisons supermarket and other family amenities, as well as welcoming public houses, popular restaurants and wine bars. Horsforth Park has beautiful extensive parkland and also includes children's recreational facilities (swings and slides, etc). New Road Side is approximately half a mile away and about 20 minute's walk, and provides a choice of further shopping facilities and other amenities, as well as popular restaurants, public houses and wine bars. There are popular primary and secondary schools in the area. Leeds and Bradford Airport is barely 15 minute's drive by car as is delightful open countryside. "Hawksworth Wood Trail" with beck provides woodland walks and rambles, and is within easy reach and there are also delightful woodland walks with immediate access from this property and which have an abundance of birdlife and an interesting variety of wildlife to observe and enjoy in a lovely setting and ideal for children and dog walking. 

DIRECTIONS: FROM THE ROUNDABOUT AT THE JUNCTION OF WEST PARK RING ROAD AND THE MAIN OTLEY ROAD (A660) near Weetwood Police Station, proceed on the ring road - in a westerly direction for a little over one mile until reaching the roundabout by the "Woodside Pub and Carvery". Turn left at the roundabout into Low Lane towards Kirkstall and a very short way along at the first mini-roundabout turn right into Outwood Lane. Continue forward on Outwood Lane for approximately half a mile, when "Greenwood" is then on the left and with the advantage of AN IMPRESSIVE VERY WIDE FRONTAGE.
