An outstanding detached property of the distinctive 'Arts and Crafts' style providing an excellent range of living space and four bedrooms, crying out for remodelling or redevelopment to create a substantial family home in just under 0.75 acres of magnificent landscaped gardens.

Linton Rise is one of the village's few remaining detached homes of character which still provide the discerning purchaser with the opportunity to carry out their own programme of improvements, extension or total redevelopment to create a truly individual family home.

The property boasts many architectural features symptomatic of the 'Arts and Crafts' era with a mixture of stone and rendered elevations incorporating traditional leaded light windows under a tiled roof.

This much loved family home has been rarely available in the open market and enjoys a private setting within this prestigious neighbourhood amidst extensive landscaped gardens which are protected from multiple development by well documented restrictive covenants.

An impressive reception hall with a magnificent turret style stairwell and guest cloakroom leads to a sitting room, conservatory and a tremendous dining room with exposed beams and imposing inglenook fireplace. There is space within the existing breakfast kitchen and utility room to create a larger contemporary kitchen which would link the aforementioned accommodation with a large snooker/games room.

On the first floor there are four family bedrooms, a bathroom and guest cloakroom with an overall internal floor area over two floors of just under 2700 sqft excluding an integral garage.

There is secure gated access to a sweeping driveway with extensive car parking to the front of the above mentioned garage and within the surrounds of a further substantial detached double garage. The gardens are a magnificent feature with extensive lawns and screening borders bounded by mature hedgerows which ensure that a high level of privacy is enjoyed.

Linton remains the most sought after village in the Wetherby district as a direct result of the unique range of individual dwellings and its strong community spirit centred around the village hall and the famous Windmill Inn. There is an excellent choice of schooling in the area for all age groups in both state and private sectors and the busy commuter will readily appreciate the excellent road links to major commercial centres.
