High Leas, Eccup Lane, Leeds, LS16
A rare and wonderful opportunity to acquire a stunning country house of generous proportions, now in need of renovation throughout, with attached, two bedroom annex set in delightful gardens and woodland of approximately 1.8 acres (0.73 Ha).
A hidden gem, arguably one of the most desirable properties in North Leeds, High Leas enjoys a lovely setting within large, secluded and private gardens on the edge of Leeds, close to lovely open countryside yet within easy reach of the business centres of Leeds and Harrogate. This charming and distinctive property retains an extensive range of original period features. High Leas has not been on the market in over 55 years and this is a very rare opportunity for someone ready to refurbish a grand property and give this stunning home a new lease of life. This family home is ready to be invested in and welcomes a buyer to update this period home and enjoy putting their own stamp on the property.
To the ground floor there are three spacious reception rooms and a breakfast kitchen, with the drawing room being of particularly spacious proportions, opening to a summer house enjoying stunning views over the garden. To the first floor, the generous master bedroom has its own en-suite. There are four further good sized bedrooms and house bathroom. To the lower ground floor are a series of large cellars with 11ft high ceilings which could be a great feature of this home, ideal for a home cinema or games room.
Attached to the building is a cottage, accessed through the main house but also with its own external access should any future owner wish to separate the cottage from the rest of the living quarters. The annex has a living room, kitchen and cloakroom / wc to the ground floor and its own staircase leading to two bedrooms and a bathroom on the first floor.
High Leas sits within its own private grounds, accessed up a shared, tree lined driveway and over a cattle grid. The driveway circles the entire property which provides parking for many cars with access to the detached suite of garages. There are a number of useful outbuildings and greenhouse while the gardens themselves comprise large, sweeping lawns with mature hedges and planting. A stone terrace makes an ideal seating area from which to overlook the idyllic grounds and the whole is set off by lovely trees and a woodland area.
The property is conveniently situated in this highly sought after residential location to the north of Leeds on the edge of spectacular Yorkshire countryside. High Leas enjoys an idyllic, secluded setting but with the convenience of amenities nearly on the doorstep, including a wide range of shops, school and recreational facilities. The property is also ideally placed for travelling into the centre of Leeds. The Leeds outer ring road is close by enabling access to the surrounding business centres of Bradford, Harrogate and York and the national motorway networks (M1, M62 and A1). Leeds/Bradford Airport is situated at nearby Yeadon.
From the office in West Park turn left and at the Lawnswood roundabout continue straight ahead along Otley Road into Adel. At the traffic lights turn right onto Church Lane and at the 'T' junction bear left along church Lane which continues into Eccup Lane. The property will be identified by Dacre, Son & Hartley’s For Sale board.
