Located in this LOVELY LITTLE-KNOWN CUL-DE-SAC within the HEART OF THE SOUGHT-AFTER RESIDENTIAL AREA OF WEST PARK and ideally situated for comfortable daily commuting, by regular public transport facilities, to Leeds city centre, via Headingley and the university, AN OUTSTANDING and RARE OPPORTUNITY (as the property has been in the SAME FAMILY OWNERSHIP for over fifty years) to purchase this VERY IMPOSING, INDIVIDUAL DETACHED RESIDENCE. The IMPRESSIVE SIZE is impossible to assess and appreciate without an internal inspection, as the property BENEFITS FROM A VERY TASTEFUL and IMAGINATIVE CONVERSION OF THE LOFT to create a SUPERB "STUDIO" STYLE MASTER BEDROOM with EN-SUITE SHOWER, and now offers EXCELLENT FAMILY ACCOMMODATION OVER THREE FLOORS, with some LOVELY ORIGINAL FEATURES creating MUCH CHARM and CHARACTER. The GENEROUS WINDOW SPACE affords VERY GOOD NATURAL LIGHT to the rooms - which are of GENERALLY VERY GOOD PROPORTIONS and there is also A DEGREE OF VERSATILITY IN THE LAYOUT and consequently the way in which some of the rooms can be used and they are adaptable to individual family requirements. FURTHER ENHANCED by the DELIGHTFUL, PRIVATE, SOUTHERLY-FACING REAR GARDEN OF VERY GOOD SIZE, the property also has the advantage of a DETACHED TANDEM GARAGE some 28'6" x 12'0" (measured internally).
AMENITIES: The property is situated within this much sought after and very convenient residential area, approximately five miles to the north-west of Leeds. As the property has virtually immediate access to the Otley Road (A660) and is also very near the West Park/North Leeds ring road, it is in a very convenient position for comfortable daily commuting, by car, to the commercial centres of Leeds and Bradford and also the former spa towns of Harrogate and Ilkley and the historic, active market town of Otley. Regular public transport facilities on the nearby Otley Road provide access to Leeds city centre via Headingley and the university and in the other direction to Otley and Ilkley with connections to Skipton. There are excellent shopping facilities in Headingley, Horsforth, Moortown and Meanwood and all of which are within approximately ten minute's drive and offer a choice of supermarkets including Waitrose, Sainsbury's and Morrisons. Holt Park Centre (barely ten minute's drive) has an enlarged Asda supermarket as well as "Holt Park Active" with swimming pool and sports hall. The Village Hotel and Leisure Club is only a few minute's walking distance from this property. The famous Golden Acre Park is a couple of miles away and barely ten minute's drive by car (also on a bus route) as is delightful open countryside. THE "VIBRANT" AREA OF HEADINGLEY (a short bus ride or about 20 minute's walk) has traditional flagged floor pubs as well as wine bars and a choice of popular restaurants as well as other leisure facilities including both the Headingley cricket and rugby grounds and Cottage Road Cinema.
DIRECTIONS: FROM THE ROUNDABOUT AT THE JUNCTION OF WEST PARK RING ROAD AND THE MAIN OTLEY ROAD (near Weetwood Police Station) proceed on the A660 in the direction of Leeds - for about one fifth of a mile and IMMEDIATELY BEFORE REACHING the small roundabout by West Park Parades (almost diagonally across from our office) turn left into Weetwood Park Drive.
