Simply stunning throughout – this is an incredibly spacious ground floor apartment set within the beautifully restored Mansion House in Mansion Gate, Chapel Allerton.
It is not your normal two bed property; it boasts considerable amount of space and oozes history. After lying derelict, the property was recently restored to its former glory over the past two years. The Grade ii-listed mansion was originally named Gledhow Grove, built for flax spinning mill owner John Hives in the 1830’s. He was a prominent individual who ran Bank Mills on East Street which was one of Leeds largest, and is now buried in Chapel Allerton cemetery. After Hives left the property, Gledhow Grove became a military hospital specialising the treatment of soldiers in World War One.
Mansion House sits within a gated community within Mansion Gate of 18 dwellings. Boasting fantastic traditional features mixed with an array of mod-cons, the property has parquet flooring and stylish wood cornices flowing throughout. The attractively decorated hallway leads into the hugely spacious living room, which boasts four column radiators and considerably high windows optimising natural light. The high-specification kitchen features marble worktops, Rangemaster cooker, “champagne flow” kitchen tap, “frost free” American style fridge freezer, built in dishwasher and washer dryer. Both double bedrooms are beaming with character, and both feature contemporary style en-suites with power rain showers, as well as featuring an additional WC. The property has 12.ft high ceilings and large Georgian style sash windows with shutters throughout, an antique mirror wall and ample built in storage.
The property has its own private front door, and includes two parking spaces, a private basement with original arched brick ceiling, and a large secure bike store.
