Oakhill Farmhouse is a hidden gem being only 4 miles from Leeds City centre but giving the feeling of countryside living with its elevated and secluded south facing position overlooking its own extensive and well established gardens.
The accommodation is beautifully presented and arranged over two floors. The impressive entrance hall of the house, which showcases the bespoke oak staircase leads off to the generous array of reception rooms – the hub of which is the large dining kitchen with views out on to the garden. The principal reception rooms include a spacious sitting room and drawing room both looking on to the garden. The dining room has a library and open fire to one end and flows well for entertaining. Although the current owners have upgraded and renovated Oakhill, with underfloor heating throughout, audio visual to most rooms, smart house network for computers and adding bespoke fixtures and fittings, it still retains much of its character. For the day to day running of the home, there is a well equipped pantry, a boot room and utility room as well as a cloakroom and w/c.
Off the entrance hallway there is a useful room which is currently used as a study but could be also used as an additional living room.
To the first floor is a stunning master bedroom overlooking the garden and views beyond, with a fitted dressing room and luxurious ensuite. There is also a mezzanine level which leads to a separate second dressing room. There are four further generous ensuite bedrooms all leading off the impressive galleried landing area and a study with balcony. This could be used as a bedroom if required.
Outside the house has a extremely private south facing garden, offering a high degree of privacy and ideal for children to play in or for entertaining. There is an ornamental pond, a picturesque lake and an array of trees and shrubs. The house has many terraced seating areas and a garden room, ideal for taking in the views and enjoying the garden. As well as a gated rear entrance the property is accessed through timber electric gates. The driveway sweeps up and into a courtyard in front of the house, providing ample parking. The three bay car port also houses two useful stores and has a large room above, which could have multiple usages.
The detached stone built cottage stands away from the main house and would be idea as an annexe, au pair accommodation or further guest accommodation. This has a kitchen and large sitting room with doors onto the garden and a bedroom and bathroom above.
The property is situated between the popular north Leeds suburbs of Roundhay and Alwoodley, which offer an extensive range of shops, deli's and restaurants as well as sporting and recreational facilities. There are excellent schools nearby, including the Grammar School at Leeds, Gateways in Harewood and the primary schools in Alwoodley and Roundhay.

Close to the A1 M, the M1 and M62 allow for a convenient commute north and south and there is a main line rail link from London Kings Cross from Leeds in approx. two hours.
