To the right of the landing is a fantastic L Shaped living/dining room with a combination of solid wood and Travertine flooring - cleverly used to split the living area from the dining area. The living room has a HWAM log burner, breath taking views across the valley and bi-fold door out to the rear patio and garden.
Across the hallway is a bespoke and newly fitted Eastburn breakfast kitchen with Amtico flooring, Falcon range cooker, Miele dishwasher, American fridge freezer, wine cooler and Quooker boiling tap.
There is also a separate utility/boot room with sink and fitted units. A second set of bifold doors give access to the rear terrace and garden from the galleried landing.
At the far end of the hallway is an impressive master bedroom with dressing area, built in wardrobes and Oak floor with tiled en-suite shower room. There are French doors with a glass Juliet balcony to enjoy the far reaching views. Also at this end of the house is a guest bedroom and guest WC.
To the ground floor are four further double bedrooms. One with en-suite shower room which could be used as a self-contained annex with French doors giving independent access and valley views. There is a house bathroom and a generous home office with storage cupboard that could be used as family/ cinema room if desired.
Outside the property to the front is a driveway for numerous cars, double garage with roof terrace and foundations to support a second storey subject to planning, extensive tree lined lawn and incredible open views.
To the rear of the property is a patio terrace which is a sun trap, timber framed pagoda with electric light and power. There are further gardens and four stables, one currently used as a tack room. Next to the stables is an enclosed sand turnout area and small grass paddock.
The garden and grounds are approximately 1.5 acres in total. One of the features of the property is that the gardens, although generous, have been designed to be low maintenance.
Adjacent to the house is a privately enclosed 3.62 acre paddock that the current owners have grazed for many years. This is owned in partnership (with the current owners having a 50% stake). For those with horses, this location and set up is perfect, with access straight onto Ilkley moor.
