A beautifully presented and significantly improved detached period stone built former lodge, set in stunning private landscaped gardens and located in the popular North Leeds suburb of Roundhay.

This unique property has over recent years undergone a significant programme of sympathetic modernisation, retaining the period character of a house built in the late 1800s and now incorporating a high standard of modern appointment. An early inspection is strongly recommended as properties of this nature are rarely found in the open market, especially in this convenient and established location. The highly regarded suburb of Roundhay offers a wide range of excellent shops, restaurants and recreational facilities. This is in easy reach of the amenities on Street Lane and of Roundhay Park which is within 5 minutes walk. There are excellent schools within easy reach including the Grammar School at Leeds, Gateways at Harewood and primary schools in Roundhay itself. A wide variety of sporting facilities are also close by including many golf courses and the David Lloyd fitness centre within 10 minutes drive. There is ready access onto the region’s motorway infrastructure for travel further afield and a mainline train service from Leeds making London’s Kings Cross some 2 hours away.

The inviting reception hall features a turned staircase to the first floor and circular window and leads through into a light and well proportioned sitting/dining room. The sitting area features a semi circular bay window and electric log effect stove in recess. A wide archway opens through into the dining room with additional side window and the whole of this area and reception hall has oak herringbone flooring. Off the dining room is a home office and to the rear of the property is a comprehensively equipped breakfast kitchen with a with a range of high gloss units and preparation surfaces and with a matching island/breakfast bar, a range of integrated appliances including split level oven, grill and ceramic hob, microwave, fridge freezer and dishwasher. Leading off the kitchen is a utility lobby and guest cloakroom.

A galleried landing at first floor level leads into the principal bedroom with part vaulted ceilings and a range of fitted furniture, second double bedroom with a range of built in wardrobes and there is a lovely modern contemporary bathroom with shaped bath with shower over, vanity wash hand basin and a separate low suite WC.

Outside the property is a gravelled driveway/private parking area for two cars. A hand gate opens into a most attractive well stocked front garden with pathway leading to the front door. The rear garden is stunning with shaped lawn, extensively stocked flowerbeds and borders, gravelled pathway which leads up to a secret woodland garden area and there is a feature pergola with pitched roof.

The next steps...

Before making an offer on a property you will want to consider your financial situation, your income and outgoings.

Will you finance the purchase of your next property from the sale of an existing property which can put you in a chain, arrange a mortgage through your bank or buy the property outright.
To help you finance your next property purchase, we have a long established relationship with an independent mortgage broker who can discuss your situation with you.

Remember that having a 'mortgage decision in principle' can make you a more attractive buyer when you make an offer on a property. Contact our mortgage advisers for free, no obligation and impartial advice.
Some advantages of a broker are:

  • They do all the legwork for you, working on your behalf with the lender
  • They compare wholesale mortgage rates from a large number of banks and lenders all at once
  • Wholesale interest rates can be lower than retail (bank branch) interest rates
  • You get more loan options because they work with numerous banks and lenders
  • Brokers can finance tricky deals because of their knowledge and various lending partners
  • Are typically easier to get in contact with, less bureaucratic.

However with your bank maybe able to:

  • Build off existing relationship (discounts if you have a checking/saving account)
  • You may already know the banker who will handle your mortgage
  • Perhaps more trustworthy, more accountable than a smaller shop
  • Lower interest rates in some cases
  • Ability to add mortgage to existing banking profile and make automatic payments from linked account.

When it comes to making an offer on a property a bit of negotiation is to be expected, however don't offer so little that you end up in a lengthy negotiation process, as you might lose the property altogether if someone else makes a higher bid.

If other offers have been made on a property we aren't legally able to tell you what they are, but we may indicate if they were close to the asking price.
