Glencoates is an imposing, detached family home which has been extensively refurbished and extended in recent years by the current owners to an exceptionally high standard. The house enjoys a great deal of privacy, situated in a substantial, mature garden on one of Alwoodley’s most prestigious roads.
The property is approached via twin electric gates onto the carriage driveway which has parking for multiple cars. A detached double garage stands to the right of the property. The garage has a loft area for additional storage.
From the driveway, double doors open into the beautiful, double height, reception hallway. To the left is a sweeping staircase leading to the galleried landing and the accommodation on the first floor. All the downstairs rooms are accessed directly off the hallway.
There are three formal reception rooms which face onto the south facing rear garden - the games room, sitting room and dining room. They all have floor to ceiling French doors which make these rooms both light and elegant. Hardwood flooring means that access from all these rooms to the garden is used often during the summer months.
The elegant sitting room is extremely well proportioned and benefits from a log burner set into a traditional stone fireplace.
To the front of the property there are a further three reception rooms – a study, cinema and playroom/ music room.
To the rear of the property is an exquisitely finished SieMatic living dining kitchen with a range of Miele and Neff appliances, Corian worktops and granite breakfast table. The family living area has a fireplace with log burner set in a traditional stone fireplace and two sets of bi-folding doors opening onto the south facing garden - where the mature trees offer a great level of privacy. The Bi folds, which face south, provide direct access to the stairs leading to an outdoor seating area and fire pit. The sunken spiral wine cellar with an automatic opening glass cover and storage for a thousand bottles of wine, is located to the right of the fireplace in the kitchen. Practical and beautiful – particularly when lit in the evenings.
Completing the ground floor accommodation is a laundry room, two WCs (one between the kitchen and the playroom and one off the games room). A secondary staircase leads from the kitchen to the first floor.
The ground floor has underfloor heating throughout.
On the first floor, the master suite benefits from a dressing room with fitted furniture and stunning en suite bathroom. There is a private balcony, accessed by two sets of French doors, overlooking the rear garden. There are five further double bedrooms, four of which benefit from en suite bathrooms and there is an additional beautifully appointed large family bathroom. All the bathrooms have Porcelanosa tiles and Villeroy and Boch and Duravit furniture and Porcelain.
The loft space in this property, which the current owners have not converted, is substantial and could be used as further accommodation – something which perspective purchasers may wish to do -subject to the necessary planning consents (which neighbouring properties have achieved).
The house has gardens to three sides (and a spacious paved area to the fourth side.) The private, well established south facing rear garden is undoubtably one of the finest features of this home. It has a sunken seating area with a fire pit, a newly constructed pergola and a generous patio area; all of which make this the perfect place for outdoor entertaining. The garden can be seen and enjoyed from all of the south facing rooms.
This wonderful home is ideally situated for local amenities including a Marks & Spencer food hall and Sainsburys. For sport lovers the David Lloyd centre is a short drive away and there are numerous championship golf courses within the area. There are a number of excellent preparatory and senior schools nearby. Yorkshires leading independent school, the Grammar School at Leeds (ages 3 to 18), is within walking distance and Gateways, Ashville College, Harrogate Ladies College and Woodhouse Grove are all easily commutable. Indeed, a bus takes children directly to Ashville College in Harrogate from Sandmoor Drive.
