Ivy House Cottage, Low Lane, Silsden Moor, BD20
A most attractive character home offering generous and beautifully presented accommodation set in this idyllic location affording the property high levels of privacy and stunning countryside views.
Ivy House Cottage is an outstanding stone built home which has been extended over the course of time to offer an exceptional property with accommodation finished to the highest of standards with an abundance of charm and character in this delightful rural setting. A viewing is required to appreciate the standard of finish and attention to detail throughout. The accommodation includes to the ground floor an entrance hall and a sitting room which is the most comfortable of rooms featuring a wood burning stove, character beamed ceiling and mullion windows. Off the sitting room is a dining room and kitchen, the kitchen being a particular feature having been recently renovated to an enviable standard with hand built units from the Lime Kiln Furniture company in Addingham with granite worktops, high specification appliances and AGA range stove and refrigerator. The kitchen is complemented by a utility room off with a matching specification to the kitchen. The kitchen leads to a further living / garden room with feature fireplace housing a gas stove with stone flagged floor and double doors opening to the south facing garden. Accessed from the living / garden room is another, most versatile of rooms, that is currently used as a gym but would equally serve as a study or guest bedroom, having the advantage of adjoining bathroom facilities.
From the half landing, accessed from the entrance hall, is the house bathroom finished with luxury suite and tasteful decoration. From the half landing stairs return to the central landing which gives access to the four principal bedrooms. The master suite enjoys luxury en-suite facilities and the convenience of a walk in dressing room. There are three further bedrooms, each having an abundance of character.
To the outside, the house sits well in its own private grounds of approximately 1.608 acres (0.651 Ha). This delightful rural setting offers the property not only a high level of privacy and seclusion but some stunning far reaching rural views. The property is entered via a remote access gate with the convenience of video entry. The private driveway leads through the upper part of the grounds with tended lawns to one side and a beck to the other with pathway and bridges crossing at various points as it meanders its way towards the main house. The driveway, which passes through the upper part of the garden, turns to the double garage and down the side of the property to a good sized parking area with turning circle. Immediately to the rear of the house is a small courtyard garden with steps leading up to the greenhouse, orchard and lawns beyond, whilst to the southern side of the house are attractive, established, well stocked enclosed gardens with stone paved seating terraces that provide an open aspect and rural views to this unique home.
