Church Lane, Stainburn, Otley, LS21
An exceptional six bedroom detached period family home vastly improved and modernised over recent years with four reception areas including a beautifully fitted kitchen, excellent ancillary space together with a garage, ample parking and pleasant family friendly gardens and stone outbuilding in this charming rural village convenient for Harrogate, Otley and Ilkley as well as further afield.
Smithy House was acquired a few years ago by our clients and in the intervening time has been subject to a massive programme of upgrading, extension and renovation. Much of the original character remains, yet there are ultra-modern services including underfloor heating and extensive rewiring.
As the photographs show the majority of rooms have been finished to an excellent standard, a particular feature being the family kitchen with green oak glazed area commanding fine views. There is also some scope for the discerning buyer to put their own personality on the living space.
The ground floor includes the aforementioned kitchen plus a lounge, TV room and sitting area/snug as well as a bedroom suite with shower room. The upper storey includes a master bedroom with dressing area and en-suite as well as four further bedrooms and a house bathroom.
Adjoining the living space is a range of further ancillary accommodation including a utility area, downstairs WC, workshop and store plus a garage and storage area and a stone outbuilding presently used for outdoor entertaining.
There is ample parking on the wide driveway beyond which are pleasantly sloping enclosed gardens with a croft/orchard area and lawns, ideal for children's games and summer entertaining.
The property would undoubtedly appeal to those with equestrian or other outdoor pursuits with Lindley Reservoir and other delightful scenic areas including Dobb Park and Norwood Woods being within comfortable walking and "hacking"
