Catstones Wood, Shipley BD18 1JP | Sold £850,000

Property Description

A rare opportunity to purchase a magnificent, very well presented, detached family residence with accommodation on one level.  The property stands in extensive ground of approximately one acre (STS) and in a private and elevated position.  

The highly desirable position of this property, discreetly situated behind automatic gates at the end of a private road in an exclusive residential location, adds to its fascination.   The accommodation is of a traditional layout and has been sympathetically extended by the current owners to add a double height, vaulted ceiling kitchen/living room with extensive glass windows and doors that make the most of the stunning views and external decked areas.  At the other end of the property a similarly stunning master bedroom suite also benefits from double height windows and bi-fold doors opening onto the outdoor terraces as well as accommodating a striking bathroom area and walk in dressing room.   All fixtures and fittings are of an exceptionally high standard and attention to detail has been lavished throughout the property.

Wrose Lodge has gas fired central heating and double glazing throughout, electricity, mains water and a septic tank.

The exterior of the property boasts an enviable landscaped lawn with borders of trees, shrubs, hedging, stone and decked dining and seating areas as well as a hot tub and outdoor kitchen.  All are arranged to maximize the benefits of the sun throughout the day and the long distance views of the Aire valley.    A driveway offers secure parking for several cars and leads to a three garages, a self contained studio annex and storage facilities.
