An attractive detached stone cottage which was built as a lodge house to the former Asket Hall. Offering tremendous charm and character, the property has been skilfully and sympathetically refurbished and modernised, yet still retains many original period features that are so loved by discerning buyers looking for a unique and individual home. The accommodation is centrally heated and most of the lovely stone mullioned windows have replacement sealed unit glazed panes. The ground floor has a vestibule area which opens onto a double aspect living room with log burning stove, stone flooring and open staircase to the first floor. An attractively fitted modern kitchen also has a double aspect and has a central island unit, and a versatile dining/garden room looks onto the gardens. To the first floor are two pretty double bedrooms with sloping ceilings and exposed beams, one enjoying a double aspect and the other having fitted storage, and there is also a modern bathroom with a bath and separate shower. The property has a good size mature garden which enjoys a south facing sunny aspect and is extensively lawned with seating areas, established trees (including fruit trees and evergreens), shrubbery and planting. The owner has created a spacious summer house at the end of the garden which has a power supply and lends itself to a variety of uses to suit a buyers requirements such as cinema, gym, home office or party room, with double patio doors onto a timber decked seating area. There is an original outhouse which provides storage space with a useful garden WC, a timber garden storage shed, and there is also a detached garage with an electric remote controlled door and a storage/utility area to the rear. In front of the garage is a drive/parking and there are also two additional parking spaces to the side of the summer house on North Lane itself.

The property is within access of local amenities on Easterly Road/Oakwood Lane and Dib Lane including local shops and take-away food outlets, with more extensive amenities on Oakwood Parade, including restaurants, cafe/bars, shops and a library. Iconic Oakwood Clock hosts a popular monthly Farmers Market and a programme of community events. Leafy Roundhay Park offers many recreational amenities including parkland walks, the lakes, the sweeping lawns and sports grounds on Soldiers Field, pretty Canal Gardens and Tropical World which is a particularly popular attraction with children.
