Adel Mill is believed, in part, to date back to the early 17th Century and following thoughtful conversion and restoration, Stair Cottage forms a lovely Grade II listed home being one of a pair on the fringe of the development. The site itself is allegedly mentioned in the Domesday Book and occupies an idyllic semi rural position surrounded by open countryside yet within some 20 minutes’ drive of Leeds city centre. Adel offers a wide range of amenities with shops, schools and recreational facilities and the David Lloyd Leisure Centre is within 2 miles.

A stable type front door opens into an impressive reception hall with beamed and vaulted ceilings off which is a refitted breakfast kitchen with a comprehensive range of wall and base units in cream and granite preparation surfaces. Integrated appliances include a Neff double oven and grill, microwave, induction hob, dishwasher, wine fridge, fridge freezer and combined washer dryer. Just four steps lead down from the hall into an inner lobby providing access to a separate dining room/bedroom three with oak strip flooring and stable type door opening into the garden and also leading off the lobby is a second double bedroom with vaulted and beamed ceiling and fitted wardrobe with sliding mirror doors. Adjoining the bedroom is a refitted shower room with travertine marble walls and white suite.

The next level comprises a well proportioned sitting room with spindle staircase leading up to two further levels of accommodation. The principal bedroom has a beamed and vaulted ceiling and high level storage cupboard. The en suite bathroom was again refitted with travertine walls and white suite. A feature of Stair Cottage is the second mezzanine living room/home office with beamed and vaulted ceiling and minstrel gallery overlooking the sitting room.

Outside, the property is a shared courtyard giving access to a large single garage with storage/workshop area and an additional private parking space. To the front of the cottage is an attractive paved and gravelled garden with stone retaining walls and there is an enclosed rear walled garden with sunken stone paved terrace and stone steps leading up to an additional gravelled area each with stone retaining walls, flowerbeds, external lighting and pedestrian access via a wrought iron hand gate.

Tenure - We are advised that the property is available on a 999 ground lease dated from 1990 and vacant possession will be given upon legal completion.
