Burley Woodhead is unquestionably one of the region’s most sought after village communities – occupying a wonderful setting in the lee of the moors from where there are unspoilt breathtaking views across Wharfedale towards the vale of York in the distance. Whilst amenities amount to little more than the popular Hermit public house, nearby Burley in Wharfedale has a couple of primary schools as well as local shops. Ilkley is just some 3 miles distant and is home to first class shopping and a busy social round – catered for by a broad choice of restaurants and cafes. The former Victorian town also offers an excellent provision of sports clubs to suit a variety of interests and has its own highly regarded grammar school. There is private schooling for children of all ages within daily travelling distance.
Whilst benefitting from its desirable rural setting, Burley Woodhead is within comfortable daily travelling distance of many of the region’s business centres including Bradford, Leeds and Harrogate. The rail network can be joined within Burley village from where there are frequent services into both local cities, with regular onward connections from Leeds to London Kings Cross. Leeds Bradford International Airport is only 6 miles or so away from the village.
Stockgate Farm stands on the periphery of Burley Woodhead and commands magnificent views across immediate landscaped gardens and private fields, with unspoilt Wharfedale beyond. The accommodation has been sympathetically extended over the years and now provides first class family accommodation with four spacious reception rooms, including a stunning living kitchen; whilst to the first floor there are five double bedrooms including a very generous master with en-suite bathroom off. The main living space is complimented by a high calibre detached guest annexe – which could equally suit as a home office or accommodation for a dependant relative. Planning consent was granted in the June of 2018 for further extensions including a front porch and two storey side extension – the latter providing an additional reception room and principal bedroom suite.
Externally the grassland will be of appeal to those with equestrian interests or other space consuming hobbies. Immediately adjacent to the house, landscaped gardens provide a lovely amenity and include an expansive terrace with heated outdoor pool – the terrace having direct access through broad bi-fold doors leading from both the family room and the living kitchen.
The sale of Stockgate Farm offers an excellent opportunity to acquire a thoroughly impressive home, presented in a fresh contemporary style and with a great sense of space and light.
