This elegant and impressive ground floor apartment is situated within the prestigious conversion of Gledhow Manor, a stunning Grade II listed Edwardian residence set within mature grounds on the edge of Allerton Park. The building has been sympathetically converted (with a new roof in 2018), retaining the grandeur of the original Queen Anne revival style villa.
The apartment has been stylishly refurbished by the current owner and features beautifully proportioned rooms with high ceilings, original deep sash windows, radiators that are either restored originals or sympathetic modern reproduction replacements, restored parquet flooring to the principle rooms, with tasteful decor and quality fixtures and fittings throughout. The accommodation is well laid out and includes an entrance hall, a light and airy drawing room which has a large bay with south facing aspect and features an attractive fireplace set within a large panelled recess, and a lovely spacious kitchen which is attractively fitted with painted Shaker style units with quartz worktops incorporating a sociable central island, a double larder unit, and a range of integrated appliances including a gas hob, electric oven, combination microwave/grill, fridge/freezer, dishwasher and wine fridge. Also off the hallway are three bedrooms with the master having a stylish en-suite bathroom which has a roll top bath and walk through shower. There is a house bathroom with a period style suite and a rear entrance/utility which houses a modern gas fired combination boiler and is plumbed for a washing machine. There is also a particularly useful separate storage room situated in the communal entrance hall. The apartment also has the use of a basement cellar which is accessed from the rear courtyard and has a garage with an electric remote controlled door situated in a block within the grounds.
Gledhow Manor was constructed circa 1903 by notable architects Bedford and Kitson. The house, originally named 'Red House', was one of the last grand villas constructed in Leeds before the first world war and as the owner was a keen art collector, the house was arranged around a large and imposing full height galleried entrance hall with glass skylight, designed to enable him to display his art collection to best advantage. The house was converted into apartments in 1997 retaining the grand impressive entrance hall for shared use by the four apartments within the main building.
The vibrant 'village' of Chapel Allerton offers extensive local amenities including a range of cosmopolitan restaurants and cafe bars, small supermarkets, and various other specialist and independent shops including a popular cheesemonger, fishmonger, green grocer and butcher. Regular transport services on Harrogate Road afford easy access to the city centre and surrounding areas.
