This home is one of the most unique and special family homes in the area. Set in grounds extending to approximately ¾ of an acre the property is comfortable and spacious yet offers the most amazing potential! The property has scope to be one of the finest homes in the area being in the central of Rawdon village and having far reaching views which are rarely found!! The current layout offers good reception space with a generous dining kitchen, and two further large reception rooms (one 29’6” x 19’6”!), stunning balcony along with four double bedrooms. The lower ground floor offers stunning versatile space with swimming pool, games room & bar, drawing/family room along with extensive storage which also has great potential. The grounds are manicured, stunning and mature with ample parking off the private driveway and a double garage! The property is extremely well positioned for both primary schooling with St Peters a short walk away and Benton Park school which is highly regarded. The village offers an array of amenities with popular pubs and eateries along with cafes such as The Billing, the bakery is a short walk away as is the Post Office and convenience store. Walks on the Billing take in amazing long distance views. Everything is on the doorstep to this family home however it feels set back, secluded and private. For those travelling further afield, commuting to Leeds, Bradford and Harrogate are very feasible from here with easy access onto the road networks. The Apperley Bridge train station will be a short distance away as is Horforth and Guiseley!
The accommodation to the ground floor is extensive, on its own larger than most comparably priced properties. This floor is well designed for modern living offering a large dining kitchen which opens onto a spacious lounge. The sitting room is amazing in size, nearly 30ft long with a central stone fire feature and there is a guest WC. The right wing of the house offers the bedroom space with all four bedrooms been of generous sizes. In our opinion the accommodation can be further enhanced with some re-modelling and further development of the lower ground floor which offers more than full head height in the majority of the main rooms and is level out to the rear garden. The Swimming Pool is well maintained although rarely used at present although has a recently fitted filter system and has previously been run from solar panels making it efficient and cost effective. The games room and bar are fantastic for adult play or the children! Another very large room (similar to the upstairs sitting room) is versatile in its uses. There is elaborate storage with two large rooms and a boiler room. The lower ground floor could itself be a self contained annex, teenager suite or home office depending on ones own requirements. The entire house, plot and views really must be seen to be fully appreciated. Whether someone wants a spacious house in a most prime central Rawdon setting or a mid to long term project that could have real value added to it this property suits all. Externally, a sweeping driveway leads of Lartkfield Road and onto the ample parking forecourt to the front of the house which in turn leads to the detached double garage. The gardens extend to both sides and to the rear of house. There are large, level and extremely well looked after lawn, mature well stocked borders all of which are enclosed with hedging and trees. Although so very central to Rawdon this is a really peaceful and secluded setting!!
Larkfield Road is located close to Rawdon Town Street where a small selection of shops and the local pub can be found. This location offers easy access to the A65 and A658 thus making commuting straight-forward to both Leeds & Bradford City Centres. The neighbouring villages of Horsforth and Yeadon are close by and offer an abundance of shops, banks and supermarkets. The selection of pubs, restaurants and eateries in the area is vast and caters for all tastes and age groups. The more travelled commuter can find the Leeds & Bradford Airport just three miles away. This home really would make an ideal purchase for a young family or couples wanting to live in an idyllic setting with most conveniences only a short distance away.
