Full description

Forming part of the stunning redevelopment of Burley House - An undeniably spacious home, converted from a former period coach house and thoughtfully extended through the addition of a predominantly glass garden room providing a wonderful light and airy space off the dining kitchen. Living room with bi-fold doors, separate study, ground floor utility and cloaks. Five double bedrooms including an impressive master suite with both bathroom and walk-in dressing area. A stunning village home.


The village of Burley in Wharfedale is set amongst some of the area’s most stunning countryside and offers a highly desirable living environment, close to the local towns of Ilkley and Otley, as well as being well placed for Harrogate and the business centres of West Yorkshire.

With its vibrant sense of community Burley offers a thriving village atmosphere, supported by a broad provision of every day amenities including local shops, sports clubs, a couple of primary schools as well as a number of pubs and restaurants. The village even has its own ‘metro’ railway station, positioned within comfortable walking distance of Burley Court, from where there are frequent services throughout the day into the local cities of Leeds and Bradford, with regular onward connections from the former to London Kings Cross. The surrounding countryside, River Wharfe and rugged moors offer many an opportunity for stunning walks and other rural pursuits.

Nearby Ilkley is an elegant former Victorian Spa town, whilst Otley has its roots embedded in the local agricultural community and retains a regular market within the picturesque square. Each town offers an excellent choice of retail, social and recreational amenities along with sports clubs to suit a variety of interests. Both are accessible from Burley by public transport, and for those who need to travel further afield Leeds/Bradford International Airport is only some 7 miles or so distant.


Proudly standing on the eastern entry to Burley in Wharfedale since the latter quarter of the 18th Century, historic Burley House is Grade I Listed; built by a major local landowner Thomas Maude in the neoclassical style, with the main buildings supported by a charming mews and adjacent coach house.

Mentioned by Pevsner in his architectural survey of the West Riding (The Buildings of England: Yorkshire West Riding 1959), the building was last used as a private home in the early years of the 20th century before becoming St. Phillip’s school, which ran until the 1960s. The building moved from an educational use to become The Flying Pizza Two, briefly a hotel and then the headquarters office of Greenwoods Menswear and most recently Findel plc.

Now in the care of joint developers Square Feet and Yorplace Ltd these magnificent period buildings will comprise three stunning luxury apartments and a substantial four storey family home, whilst the courtyard mews buildings and adjacent coach house will form character homes ranging from two bedroom units to larger four and five bedroom properties. In addition the site will play host to three brand new three storey houses forming a secluded terrace attached to the coach house and running towards Burley’s delightful village green.

Yorplace Ltd and Square Feet are well established and highly regarded development partners having completed many successful high calibre schemes across the region. The most local is the much admired conversion and development of ‘The Malt’ – a landmark regeneration scheme to be found just a couple of hundred yards from Burley Court close to St. Mary’s parish church.

Burley Court will continue the blend of considered and sympathetic conversion and new build, with each property boasting a comprehensive specification combining modern day requirements with the fabric and character of the period buildings that form the heart of this beautifully positioned project.
The accompanying floor plans show the generous scale of the properties within the main house and sheer variety within The Mews. The Coach House is a unique building, thoughtfully extended through the provision of a garden room, whilst the three new build units offer three and four bedroom layouts planned over three floors.

Great care has been taken within the conversion to maintain the integrity of the setting, with thoughtfully placed parking, extensive retained planting and mature trees – the whole combining to create a unique scheme within a convenient and highly accessible location.

If entering Burley in Wharfedale from Ilkley, proceed towards the centre of the village and cross over the mini roundabout at the foot of Station Road. Continue ahead for a further 600 yards or so and Burley Court will be seen to the right hand side.

Alternatively, if approaching from Leeds/Guiseley, turn left at the roundabout on the outskirts of the village and Burley Court will be seen immediately to the left hand side.
