A charming and deceptively spacious Grade II listed period property, situated in a prominent position on this award winning development, adjacent to open countryside and yet within easy reach of Leeds city centre.

Adel Mill is believed, in part, to date back to the early 17th Century and following thoughtful conversion and restoration, Stair Cottage forms a lovely Grade II listed home being one of a pair on the fringe of the development. The site itself is allegedly mentioned in the Domesday Book and occupies an idyllic semi rural position surrounded by open countryside yet within some 20 minutes’ drive of Leeds city centre. Adel offers a wide range of amenities with shops, schools and recreational facilities and the David Lloyd Leisure Centre is within 2 miles.

A stable type front door opens into an impressive reception hall with beamed and vaulted ceilings off which is a refitted breakfast kitchen with a comprehensive range of wall and base units in cream and granite preparation surfaces. Integrated appliances include a Neff double oven and grill, microwave, induction hob, dishwasher, wine fridge, fridge freezer and combined washer dryer. Just four steps lead down from the hall into an inner lobby providing access to a separate dining room/bedroom three with oak strip flooring and stable type door opening into the garden and also leading off the lobby is a second double bedroom with vaulted and beamed ceiling and fitted wardrobe with sliding mirror doors. Adjoining the bedroom is a refitted shower room with travertine marble walls and white suite.

The next level comprises a well proportioned sitting room with spindle staircase leading up to two further levels of accommodation. The principal bedroom has a beamed and vaulted ceiling and high level storage cupboard. The en suite bathroom was again refitted with travertine walls and white suite. A feature of Stair Cottage is the second mezzanine living room/home office with beamed and vaulted ceiling and minstrel gallery overlooking the sitting room.

Outside, the property is a shared courtyard giving access to a large single garage with storage/workshop area and an additional private parking space. To the front of the cottage is an attractive paved and gravelled garden with stone retaining walls and there is an enclosed rear walled garden with sunken stone paved terrace and stone steps leading up to an additional gravelled area each with stone retaining walls, flowerbeds, external lighting and pedestrian access via a wrought iron hand gate.

Tenure - We are advised that the property is available on a 999 ground lease dated from 1990 and vacant possession will be given upon legal completion.

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.
