An individual, historic, family home enjoying a tranquil, private, semi-rural aspect within beautiful woodland surroundings, situated at the end of a private road and adjacent to a field and golf course/tennis courts yet only a walk away from Apperley Bridge Train Station and with Leeds Bradford International Airport and the city centre only a short drive away. Formerly two cottages combined into one and steeped in delightful period features, this home has been so sympathetically restored, (revealing stone mullioned windows, fire surrounds and magnificent oak roof trusses etc), that it was highly commended in the "Period Living" magazine's reader awards. Accommodation has an interesting, flexible layout, which the vendors recognise buyers may want to alter so they have engaged with a local architect to offer a couple of variations on the layout which are relatively simple to carry out should one wish. The alteration could even create additional space with the integration of the utility room to create a contemporary, glazed glass feature and a study. The upstairs can be reconfigured to offer three double bedrooms one being a Master suite. The spaces throughout are warm, light and airy and provide extensive/versatile family living space which currently briefly comprises: Entrance lobby, vestibule, large farmhouse style kitchen, dining room/snug with multi-fuel stove, bathroom and large bedroom to the ground floor. First Floor: Impressive 29.ft sitting room with six windows and wood burning stove, two further bedrooms, (one en-suite) and a second bathroom. The property sits within mature landscaped gardens backing onto woodland accessed from a private lane at the top of Cragg Woods, overlooking the golf course with the recent addition of a stone built stand-alone home office/studio, which offers potential to provide a self-contained flat if required, a double garage, log store and utility. So much on offer - excellent privacy and tranquil setting - yet close to train station and airport too!
The property enjoys an idyllic and peaceful setting, being part of a hamlet reached via a private road, on the fringe of Cragg Woods and being part of Cragg Woods Conservation area. Adjacent to golf and tennis club, yet close enough to the cities to ensure commuting and shopping are easy. Both independent and state schooling for primary and secondary pupils are within walking distance, (One primary boasting "Outstanding" by ofsted). Apperley Bridge train station is also within short walking distance, getting you into Leeds city centre within 9 minutes. Village shops, cafes, eateries and traditional pubs are nearby. In the vendors' own words, "The height of our trees takes our breath away each time we look up. The golfers and tennis players make good next door neighbours, the green keepers maintain our view and share bird sightings with us".
