A rare opportunity to acquire a significant Grade II listed period property in the heart of Harewood village, offering scope for development into one substantial home or principal residence with adjoining ancillary accommodation.

The property was formally used as the village post office and chapel with living accommodation across the first floor. The property occupies an elevated position on The Avenue, in the centre of Harewood, close to the entrance of Harewood House and grounds itself. There is an enclosed lawned front garden affording a high degree of privacy and an enclosed courtyard to the rear with two outbuildings and garage. There is vehicular access down the side of the property into a substantial parking area for several cars and scope to create further garaging if required, subject to planning approval. Together, the two elements of the existing property offer some 3,255 sqft of internal floor area which could be reconfigured to form a lovely family home. Alternatively, the former post office could form a separate cottage providing ancillary accommodation for a dependant relative or to provide an income stream through renting or as an Airbnb. The remaining larger section, which was the former chapel, could then form a sizeable residence in its own right. Either way the property now requires a full programme of modernisation and refurbishment but does present a fantastic and rare residential development opportunity within the village. We have not itemised the accommodation and would refer you to the floor plan within these particulars which shows the current layout. Clearly however, this will be reconfigured to suit a purchasers individual requirements.

Harewood itself has retained its traditional village feel and includes a public house, village hall, primary school and doctors’ surgery. Furthermore, the highly regarded Grammar School at Leeds and Gateways School are both close by, the latter being literally on the doorstep. Harewood is perfectly located almost midway between the vibrant city of Leeds and the spa town of Harrogate and the market town of Wetherby and the historic city of York are readily accessible. The A1(M) motorway is within 4 miles offering access to the region’s motorway infrastructure and Leeds/Bradford International Airport is only some 30 minutes drive.
