9 acres, The Beeches, Backstone Gill Lane, Wike, LS17, West Yorkshire
For Sale - Guide Price £1,250,000

The sale offers a rare opportunity to acquire an individual home within this highly sought after hamlet surrounded by open countryside yet conveniently placed for access to Leeds and Harrogate. The property is sold with some 9 acres of grass/paddock land not only protecting its own immediate environment but providing an excellent opportunity for those with equestrian interests. A further 30 acres or thereabouts could be available by separate negotiation if required. In addition to the principal dwelling is a separate detached agricultural building which could be suitable for a variety of uses, subject to planning approval, including the provision of ancillary accommodation
if required. There is also scope to extend the existing house, again subject to consent.

The property is located on the southern fringe of Wike, close to Wike and Moor Allerton Golf Course. Situated almost midway between the village of East Keswick and the North Leeds suburb of Alwoodley, Wike is ideally placed for ease of access to the Grammar School at Leeds, Gateways, fashionable shops and restaurants on Street Lane and ready access into Leeds city centre.

The ground floor is approached under a stone pillared entrance porch into the reception hall with guest cloakroom and WC which in turn leads to a light and well proportioned sitting room with stone fireplace surround, fitted gas fire, French doors opening out into the rear garden and a wide archway opening into the dining room with walk in bay window. The fitted breakfast kitchen has a comprehensive range of wall and base units in cream complemented by granite preparation surfaces and Bosch integrated appliances. A rear entrance lobby with matching fitted units has a French door into the rear garden and internal access to the integral garage.

The first floor is approached off a galleried landing with sitting area and includes a lovely principal bedroom with fitted furniture and a fitted dressing room leading through to the en suite bathroom. The second bedroom suite also has fitted furniture and en suite shower room, two additional bedrooms, house bathroom and a fitted home office/study or potential fifth bedroom.

Outside, the property is approached through a five bar entrance gate into a brick set driveway and forecourt providing ample private parking and in turn giving access to the integral double garage (agents note – the garage could be converted into additional living accommodation and new garaging formed from the separate barn if required). Beautifully tended formal gardens surround the property which are principally lawned with established mature borders and boundaries.

To the rear of the house is a completely private sun terrace facing virtually due south and enjoying views over its own paddock land. To the east of the principal dwelling is the separate agricultural building, adjacent to which is a second vehicular access onto Backstone Gill Lane. This could form ancillary accommodation for a dependant relative, additional garaging or stabling for those with equestrian interests, all of which would be subject to planning approval.
