This is such a rare opportunity! North Leeds is renowned for its lack of self build/building plot opportunities and this scheme provides one of the most stylish and desirable we have seen for a considerable time!

The planning reference for further details is 17/07416/fu.

There is currently a bungalow on the site, with planning permission to demolish this and erect the two contemporary properties. Each property will be approximately 2461 sq ft and comprise of a large open plan living/dining kitchen space and two further reception rooms. The practicalities are covered with a generous utility room, guest w.C and useful integral garage. The bedrooms are particularly well planned and versatile with five double bedrooms spanning the next two floors and three bathrooms (two en-suite bedrooms).

Once complete the landscaped gardens will provide generous parking to the front along with enclosed and level gardens which afford a good degree of privacy and will be of a good size, ideal for families.
