One of the region's most admired and distinctive properties - a fantastic detached house providing excellent family accommodation, set in superb private gardens extending to 2/3 of an acre and occupying a sought after position within a mile of Wetherby town centre.

Birchwood House occupies a superb position, set slightly back from Linton Lane, within about a mile of the centre of the market town of Wetherby, which offers a varied range of everyday facilities. For the commuter there are excellent transport links to the commercial centres of North and West Yorkshire with the A1(M) being just a couple of miles away. Mainline railway stations in York or Leeds provide direct services to London’s Kings Cross. Leeds/Bradford Airport is approximately 14 miles to the west and provides regular domestic and international flights.

This substantial and imposing detached property provides spacious accommodation arranged over two floors. It includes an impressive reception hall with a galleried landing above, cloakroom, sitting room with a conservatory off which opens onto a balcony, dining room, family room, kitchen with an adjoining breakfast room, utility room, laundry room and an additional cloakroom. Also on the ground floor, within the west wing, is a guest bedroom which has an en suite bathroom, study/additional reception room and a small kitchen. This area could easily be adapted to provide a self contained annexe for relatives or guests.

On the first floor is the principal bedroom which has a dressing room and an en suite bathroom together with three further bedrooms (one has an en suite shower room) and a house bathroom. In addition, a spiral staircase leads from one of the bedrooms up to a unique ‘tower room’, which could be utilised as a playroom, hobbies room or a study.

Outside, the property is approached via electrically
operated entrance gates which lead to a large parking area immediately to the front of the house. There is extensive garaging – firstly a triple garage with a large first floor studio room/office space and secondly a further detached garage which incorporates a one bedroom self contained annexe.

The gardens and grounds create a very impressive feature and extend in total to about 2/3 of an acre. They are mature with well screened boundaries and an abundance of specimen plants and trees. To the rear is a large garden with a covered heated swimming pool and a hot tub, bordered by a split level terrace.

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.
