Full description

Delight in the elegant proportions of this beautiful five bedroom house with off street parking and a south facing garden. In a quiet cul-de-sac close to Menston Park, train station and popular schools this location is great for children but also provides what busy professionals crave, proximity to excellent transport links and the countryside for weekend relaxation. The living kitchen diner is simply fabulous- this is a must-see property!

Timeless in appeal, this attractive Edwardian house, has a timeless look for properties of this era, a sheltering porch and generous bay windows. Entering the property to the front via a classic path or via the modern off -street parking, indicating the sensitive internal modernisation which has created an impressive family home of Victorian proportions, now more suited to contemporary living.

The front door has retained the character glass panels and the large hallway glistens in the light brought in by these. To the right is a grand reception with cornicing, picture rails and an ornate ceiling rose, a handsome fireplace and a large bay bringing oodles of light. One of the many attractive features of this house is its flexibility, and next door is an elegant room which has changed use with accordance to the needs of the family, having formally been a dining room, it now a second living room, which is now open to the extended kitchen diner- which really is a superb space.

With granite worktops, a central island, shaker style cabinetry- space for a large dining table as well as a sofa, coupled alongside the patio doors leading straight out to the garden and veluxes overhead to bring in even more light- this kitchen would not look out of place on the cover of House Beautiful magazine. There is no doubt that the next family of this delightful home will find this is the hub of their home, a convivial place to enjoy family times together- and what a party space!

Nothing has been forgotten in this family home, off the kitchen there is a handy utility room, a downstairs cloakroom and access to the cellar.
Outside, the garden is south/west facing for the afternoon and evening sunshine and designed for ease of maintenance and has plenty of space for relaxing with family or entertaining friends and a lawn for children to play.
Upstairs via the grand staircase, which you would expect for a property of this era, to the first floor, where there are three bedrooms and a bathroom. Two of the bedrooms are simply huge, with the third being a good single. The house bathroom is stunning, very well proportioned with a roll top bath and separate shower room. Cleverly the current owners have managed to mix modern conveniences with a classic style in the suite they have chosen- its perfect!
Upstairs again and there are two further double bedrooms and a shower room- teenagers and guests alike will adore these rooms- a little bit of independent space, where they can make all the noise they like without disturbing anyone!

This family property is a rare find, bursting with character yet ticking all the boxes for modern family living and with that south facing garden even more rare in Menston, its new owners will really enjoy living here!
