This is a really exciting opportunity for someone to buy a post-war, detached house on a good-sized plot, situated in what is considered to be one of the most sought-after areas in Adel, located within "The Dunstarns". EXCITING! The excitement comes from the fantastic potential to transform this house into a beautiful new home. What could be nicer than putting your own unique personality and creativity into it, particularly as I feel it is priced accordingly. Alternatively, you may wish to explore the potential to start again and build yourself a brand-new house! A potentially rewarding challenge you may say. Come and see...and decide for yourself!

So...having parked either on the roadside or on the return driveway, your guided tour starts by proceeding through the front entrance porch and into the entrance hall. 1st left will take you into an elegant bay-windowed living room which opens into a dining area. Proceeding through the double doors will take you into a single-storey garden/dining room, from which you can access the back garden. The kitchen is at the back of the house and can be accessed from the dining area or from the entrance hall. Out through the back door will take you into a sizeable lean-to porch from which you can access the front and back gardens.

The staircase from the hall will whisk you to the first-floor landing. The master bedroom is located at the front of the house and like that of the living room, has a bay window that affords lovely views over the front garden. Adjacent and to the left of the master bedroom is bedroom four, enjoying similar views. Bedroom two is located at the back of the house and enjoys views over the back garden. Walking through this bedroom will take you into bedroom three, which is situated above the garage. The modernised shower room, separate w.c., and airing cupboard are located across the landing, opposite bedroom two.

And so to the outside...There is a beautiful, good-sized front garden which has a long driveway with it's own mini roundabout at the top. There is a double-length (tandem) garage that is integral to the building but not the house itself. Excellent potential for further accommodation, perhaps? The back garden matches that of the front both in size and beauty. Both are considered to be pleasing and beneficial features, enjoy a good degree of privacy and sunshine. Great for those who like the outdoor life and entertaining with friends and family. The plot measures approximately 165 feet or so in depth, with a width of approximately 50 feet. So there you have it...what a great opportunity for someone who has the drive and vision to take on a project such as this. A rewarding one too, I expect. Surely one to add to the very top of your house-hunting shopping list? I am looking forward to seeing you at the Open Day.

Now for the amenities ... Adel is considered to be a popular and sought-after, leafy suburb within North Leeds. The main arterial roads give easy access to Horsforth, Moortown, Chapel Allerton, Headingley, and Bramhope. Leeds city centre and access to the motorway networks, and of course, Leeds and Bradford International Airport is a few miles away. Regular public transport is on hand and there is a good selection of schools in proximity ... Adel St. John's Primary, Adel Primary, Lawnswood, and Allerton High School. Private schooling and nurseries too. Apart from good shopping, restaurants, pubs, and wine bars, there are lots of sports clubs to visit in order to work off those over-indulgences.

...the vibrant Adel village memorial club, The Village, David Lloyd, and Chapel Allerton Lawn Tennis and Squash Club to name just a few. Also of local interest, is Golden Acre Park, The Canal Gardens at Roundhay, and the famous Roundhay Park with its' twin lakes. Bedquilts park/playing fields within a 10-minute walking distance. There are at least 6 good golf courses within a few miles, including Headingley Golf Club within a 10-minute walk. A 30-minute drive North, takes you out into beautiful North Yorkshire countryside...a true gem of the County!

    The property occupies a sizeable plot with extensive gardens both to the front and rear. The front garden has a lovely shaped lawn bordered by flower beds and herbaceous borders. There is a long driveway leading up to the front of the house which even has its own mini roundabout at the top. The driveway gives access to a great double-length integral garage which has a side window and a door at the back so that one can access the back garden. Access to a loft space above the garage. There is a garden area to the left-hand side of the property and a pathway to the right-hand side that leads around to the back garden. The back garden is on two levels and the top garden is accessed via a few steps up to it, or alternatively via the lawned pathways to either side of the steps. Again the garden is as nice (and similar sized) as that of the one at the front. A super feature, lots of privacy, and bring out the sun! Great gardens for those who enjoy the outdoor life and entertaining. I just love them!
