Property Description

OUTSTANDING DETACHED FAMILY RESIDENCE | ANNEXE WITH BEDROOM/BATH/LIVING KITCHEN | HOME OFFICE/STUDIO AWAY FROM THE MAIN HOUSE



Positioned in an elevated position on Ancaster Road in the hugely sought-after suburb of West Park, this wonderful home offers style, luxury and absolute privacy. The area has always been seen as “the place” to move to for those wanting to live in the shadow of the city but have the trappings of ‘village’ life as well as being close to smart urban hotspots such as Headingley and Leeds city centre.

The original house dates from 1910 and contains Arts and Crafts details and features including a wonderful veranda to the front. It has recently been extended and redeveloped in a contemporary style to provide an east wing containing an extended kitchen diner, a pottery studio/home office and a one bedroom annexe, all of which face south and open directly on to the recently landscaped garden. Altogether, the residence comprises a six bedroomed, three bathroom, four reception room detached family home flanked by beautiful gardens approaching half an acre in the centre of West Park.

This family home offers a high degree of flexibility. The self-contained annexe has its own kitchen and bathroom facilities and independent access, offering a level of independence seldom available in a conventional house. The ability to have people come and go without disturbing the main house is convenient and empowering for both teenagers and the elderly. There is an internal link from the annexe to the main house should it be required.

The studio/office also has independent access. It could easily be incorporated into the annexe to create a larger unit if desired.

Private gated access leads into the property from Ancaster Road and non-permit on street parking is also available to one side of the road. With over 3000 square feet of living accommodation, you will struggle to find a better family home so central to Leeds.

The location is as good as it gets for excellent schooling, local amenities, and convenient access to the universities and multiple transport links including the airport. You are a short walk to anywhere from Ancaster Road with West Park and Headingley’s array of shops and eateries, the independent Richmond House School, the coveted Weetwood and St. Chad’s Primary Schools, the Hollies, and Beckett and Meanwood parks all on your doorstep making it a convenient and practical location to call home.

Moving is a time consuming and often expensive process and the huge benefit of 4 Ancaster Road is you are unlikely to have to do it again. Plans have been drawn and authorised to convert the loft to provide a master suite with dormer window to the rear and roof windows to the front enjoying expansive views across Leeds (drawings available on request). With this, the house would approach 4000 square feet. Not only will you own one of the biggest detached houses in West Park, it will also be on one of the best plots that the village has to offer.

4 Ancaster Road, for the right buyer, could provide a family home for decades to come and if privacy, space, peace, location and wildlife are high on your agenda then welcome to this little oasis of calm in the shadow of the city.

This impressive house has a new roof, new boiler and plumbing, has been re-wired throughout, has wet underfloor heating in the extension/annexe, electric underfloor heating in the house bathroom, gas central heating elsewhere, good quality Crittal style aluminium windows and doors in the extension/ annexe, and secondary or double glazing elsewhere.

Some of this home’s excellent features include:

• Panelled entrance hall which creates the perfect first impression.

• W.C with utility space.

• Spacious Drawing room with dual aspect windows and feature wood-burning stove.

• Library which is an impressive reception room flooded with natural light and incorporating a multi-fuel stove.

• Dining room situated just off the kitchen and perfect for life’s formal occasions.

• Spacious kitchen diner which has been recently extended with wood-burning stove and double doors out to the gardens.

• To the first floor there is a beautiful galleried landing with large decorative feature window.

• There is a family bathroom with a four-piece suite.

• There are five double bedrooms with the master bedroom having an ensuite shower room.

• Certificate of Lawfulness and drawings to create a master suite in the loft space with dormer window and further ensuite.


Ground floor annexe:

• Spacious double bedroom with double doors to garden.

• Full bathroom suite with shower over the bath.

• Open plan kitchen/living space with integral appliances and pleasant views of the well landscaped gardens.

Studio/Office:

• Currently a pottery studio but could serve myriad purposes. An ideal space for those working form home looking for seclusion away from the busier parts of the household. Double doors to garden.

• Externally there is gated access from the road providing off street parking. The beautifully landscaped gardens flank the property to two sides and are bound by tall hedging offering a high degree of privacy. They contain lawned and hard-paved areas, a pond, an orchard, and a prairie garden. Twin sheds provide ample storage.
