Believed to date back to the 19th Century is this truly magnificent double fronted period property that has been sympathetically restored and modernised to retain a wealth of original features and charm. Oak Cottage is an exquisite and characterful property that features fabulous south facing gardens boasting wonderful countryside views and is situated within this highly regarded and award winning village.

An early inspection of this stunning residence is most strongly recommended to appreciate the quality of accommodation on offer and will reveal beautifully presented and versatile living space. A welcoming reception hall leads to a guest W.C. And the principle ground floor rooms of the house including a charming and stylish living room providing a perfect space for relaxation with a central feature fireplace incorporating a wood burning stove with exposed stone walls and original beams to ceiling. Open access gives way to the formal dining room, ideal for those who like to entertain and in turn has double doors that lead into a delightful conservatory enjoying wonderful views of the rear garden and open countryside beyond. The modern kitchen has attractive units fitted at floor and wall height with an array of high quality integrated appliances, a breakfast bar unit, double aspect windows and access to a utility area. From the aforementioned hallway is a highly flexible room currently used as a family snug but alternatively could be a study or an occasional bedroom.

To the first floor the wonderful master bedroom has fitted wardrobes and drawers, original beams to a vaulted ceiling and is serviced by its own contemporary en-suite shower room having attractive tiling, a double length walk-in shower cubicle and ‘his and ‘hers’ sink units. Two further double bedrooms both have fitted wardrobes and are complimented by a superb house bathroom comprising a three piece white suite with ‘his’ and ‘hers’ sink units and a stand-alone-bath.

To the rear of the property is a beautifully landscaped garden that provides complete privacy with fantastic countryside views. A stone flagged patio area provides an ideal space for alfresco dining and outdoor entertaining and leads to a garden area that is predominantly laid to lawn with surrounding borders housing a vast variety of mature plants, shrubs and trees with three timber built garden sheds. A secure driveway with electric gates leads to a gravelled driveway providing generous off street parking for numerous vehicles.

Oak Cottage is situated in the highly regarded village of Thorner and is ideally located for those wanting a countryside location which is still within close proximity of a wide range of amenities. The vibrant centre of Leeds is a short drive away and the popular towns of Wetherby and Harrogate are also within easy reach. There are good local schools for all ages with the Grammar School at Leeds situated at the nearby Alwoodley Gates. This superb residence represents a true one off property and we would encourage any interest parties to view at their earliest convenience.
