To the rear there is an expansive stone paved terrace overlooking well stocked and colourful gardens with lawn, summer house and heated pool.

Constructed in the early 1920s - a time of elegance and significant growth in Ilkley's townscape - Brae House stands close to the head of Middleton Avenue, within Ilkley's prime residential area and yet within comfortable walking distance of the town's comprehensive amenities and transport connections.

Brae House has been significantly extended over the years and much loved by the current owners who have invested significantly in improving and upgrading the accommodation - the whole now providing a highly desirable living environment, beautifully blending character, period details and proportions with luxurious fittings including three sumptuous bathrooms and a stunning living kitchen fitted with ''The Secret Drawer' cabinetry and having the advantage of stunning views to the south. The kitchen boasts a comprehensive inventory of Miele equipment - a detail which is so typical of the changes which have been made to Brae House in recent years.

Entered through a welcoming reception hall, there are four principal day rooms - including a triple aspect living room, charming snug and spacious family room - as well as a dining room accessed off the living kitchen. The latter, along with many of the rooms, has the benefit of French doors which lead out to the terrace which offers lovely views across town and of course delightful aspects on to the gardens.

The four first floor bedrooms all feature integrated storage by ''The Secret Drawer', whilst two have luxury en-suite facilities - supplementing the wonderful house bathroom. There is even a discreetly positioned study area with storage, again by ''The Secret Drawer'.

Externally the grounds are a delight - approached through remote controlled gates there is an expansive gravel finished resin parking area which leads to the property's detached garage block. By far the majority of the grounds are to the southern side of the house and have been thoughtfully landscaped to provide an enlarged terrace from where a set of broad stone steps lead down to a generous lawn providing an ideal amenity bordered by well stocked flower beds and shrubs. There is a charming summer house, whilst immediately adjacent to the dining room is a heated swimming pool with terrace seating areas and barbeque area - ideal for al fresco dining complemented by a stunning aspect!

Ilkley itself needs little introduction - the town having justifiably been anointed ''the best place to live' by The Sunday Times in the spring of 2022. Middleton has long been considered as Ilkley's prime residential area, understandably so given the lovely south facing position on the banks of the River Wharfe. A short stroll from Brae House, down the adjacent leafy Middleton Avenue, leads towards the town's cricket and rugby clubs, as well as Ilkley Lido and pool.

Beyond, over the main river bridge, are the town's comprehensive range of retail, social and recreational amenities which provide an excellent range of restaurants, everyday shops as well as a theatre and popular cinema. Ilkley is blessed with a highly regarded schooling system with a number of popular primary schools feeding the Ilkley Grammar School, although there is private schooling for children of all ages within comfortable daily travelling distance.

Set in the heart of Wharfedale and surrounded by beautiful open countryside, Ilkley is a very practical base for the regional traveller, with business centres including Leeds, Bradford and Harrogate all within comfortable daily travelling distance - from the central Metro station there are regular services throughout the day into both local cities, and from Leeds there are frequent daily services to London Kings Cross.

From our office in the centre of town proceed down Brook Street and through the main traffic lights, crossing over the river bridge on to Middleton Avenue. Continue ahead on to the junction with Curly Hill, turn right and Brae House is the second house to the right hand side.
