  • Nice garden views and distant panoramic views.
  • A wide and varied array of local amenities.
  • Excellent transport links including train station & international airport.
  • Hallway, guest w.c., living room, conservatory, kitchen & utility.
  • 3 bedrooms and a modern contemporary shower room.

After parking on either of the driveways or if you prefer, on the roadside, your guided tour will commence by walking up the pathway to the left-hand side of the bungalow. Here you will enter a small vestibule, where a guest cloakroom will be located on the right and a utility room to the left. Proceeding straight forward will lead you into the kitchen, which enjoys views over the back garden. Through the kitchen will take you into an "L" shaped inner hallway and by turning left you will enter an elegant living room that has multi-aspect views over the 95ft, private, back garden. Proceeding across the inner hallway will take you into the conservatory situated at the front of the house...again with lovely views over the 95ft front garden and enjoying distant panoramic views also. At the end of the hallway there are 3 bedrooms, all having lovely garden views. Last, but by no means least, situated at the other end of the hallway is a modern and contemporary shower room. The loft space is accessed via a wooden ladder in the hallway. This space has been converted to form 2 rooms, one of which has a dormer window. This may provide excellent potential to form further accommodation subject to planning consent and building regulations that may be required.

And so to the outside...please bring your hiking boots and a packed lunch with you, and when reaching the top of the garden, please look out for the teddy bears'picknicking... sometimes they will let you join in! No seriously...The front garden has a driveway that leads to a detached garage and a second driveway providing off-street parking for one car. There is a large lawned area and the pathway will take you around to the rear of the bungalow, to the back garden. Again, this measures 95ft or so in length and with a width of approximately 50ft. I simply adore this garden...there are seating areas, lovely herbaceous borders, an ornamental pond, and a greenhouse...A gardener's delight. Superb for those who enjoy the outdoor life.

So what about the amenities I hear you ask? Cookridge has continued to be popular and a sought-after location due to an abundance of these. Lots of different sizes and shapes of shops of all kinds ranging from supermarkets in Cookridge, Holt Park and Horsforth, to the traditional corner shops, just about everywhere. Doctors, dentists, and schools for children of all ages are catered for, within the immediate vicinity. Being on the edge of the countryside, there is a particularly nice walk over nearby fields to Golden Acre Park. There are numerous recreational facilities in proximity with Horsforth and Cookridge golf clubs being the closest. For those of you who wish to move at a faster pace of life, gyms and sports clubs too. If you throw into the mix, nice pubs, restaurants and wine bars there is more than enough going on to suit most palates. For commuters, there are regular bus services, good road and rail links (Horsforth station) as well as Leeds and Bradford International airport.

So, to sum up ... this could very well be just the house for you. I certainly like it, but then I would say that, wouldn't I? Why don't you book a viewing and come and see it for yourself? It is certainly is one that should be at the very top of your house hunting shopping list.

    Rarely does a detached bungalow like this become available with a plot size of just over 1/4 of an acre! The front garden has twin driveways, one of which leads to a detached single garage. There is a large lawned area measuring approximately 95ft in depth by 50ft in width and a pathway that leads up to the bungalow. There are delightful herbaceous borders and a rockery. The pathway continues down the left-hand side of the property and into the back garden. Who would have thought that you would find a garden just as big as that of the front! Again there are shaped lawns, herbaceous borders, an ornamental pond, greenhouse, vegetable beds, and a wildflower area. Being elevated and set back from the road-side, the feeling of privacy is assured, both at the front and back, and superb for those that enjoy gardening and outdoor living.
