AN OUTSTANDING and RARE OPPORTUNITY for a single person or couple to purchase this MOST APPEALING "PENTHOUSE" STYLE APARTMENT on the second (top) floor of this imposing semi-detached residence - understood to have been built in the late Victorian era and originally part of St Chads Hall. The apartment, which, is SET WELL BACK FROM THE ROAD in this EXTREMELY CONVENIENT and VIBRANT LOCATION, is within relatively easy walking distance of Headingley centre (about 10-15 minutes), and has almost immediate access to regular public transport facilities to Leeds city centre via the university. There is GENEROUS WINDOW SPACE affording VERY GOOD NATURAL LIGHT to the rooms - which have A DEGREE OF CHARM and CHARACTER, and from the rear, there is A SUPERB, PANORAMIC, DISTANT VIEW across playing fields, and with NO OTHER PROPERTIES' WINDOWS IMMEDIATELY DIRECTLY FACING the front or rear elevation. The apartment, which, has THE ADVANTAGE OF NO-ONE ELSE ABOVE, also ENJOYS AN OUTLOOK TO SOME ESTABLISHED TREE TOPS from the front, westerly-facing windows, and we understand there is use of the VERY ATTRACTIVE, ESTABLISHED, COMMUNAL GARDENS. There is also a DESIGNATED CAR PARKING SPACE approached from Glen Road and which will be pointed out at the time of the viewing.
AMENITIES: The apartment is situated in a sought-after, established residential location on the Far Headingley/West Park border to the north-west of Leeds (barely five miles from the city centre) and is also ideally placed for comfortable daily commuting, by car, to the other commercial centre of Bradford as well as the former spa towns of Harrogate and Ilkley. There are regular public transport facilities to Leeds city centre, via Headingley and the university, on Otley Road and local shopping parades are within relatively easy walking distance. More extensive shopping facilities can be found in Headingley and Meanwood as well as Horsforth and Moortown, including the choice of supermarkets of Waitrose, Sainsbury's and Morrisons. The famous Golden Acre Park is approximately three and a half miles away and barely 15 minute's drive by car (also on a bus route from Otley Road), as is delightful open countryside. Leeds Bradford Airport is barely 20 minute's drive. There are very popular primary schools and also secondary schools in the area and The Village Hotel and Leisure Club is within easy walking distance. THE "VIBRANT" AREA OF HEADINGLEY is also within relatively easy walking distance and has excellent shopping facilities, a mix of trendy bars and traditional flagged floor pubs, popular restaurants and wine bars as well as well-known fish and chip shops. Other popular leisure facilities in the area include Cottage Road Cinema (less than 10 minute's walk) and both the Headingley cricket and rugby grounds.
DIRECTIONS: FROM OUR WEST PARK OFFICE proceed on Otley Road (A660) in the direction of Headingley, and continue through the first set of traffic lights when the property is then barely 50 paces along on the left IMMEDIATELY BEYOND Richmond House School and just before reaching the junction with Glen Road.
