Harrison Robinson is delighted to offer this stunning, five-bedroom, end terrace, Victorian villa lovingly converted by the present owners into a tremendous, contemporary living space, yet retaining many charming, original features throughout, creating an eclectic mix of styles desired by so many discerning buyers of today. If it is space you are after then look no further, this family home provides the opportunity for everyone to create their own environment. Positioned close to Ben Rhydding centre, primary school and just a short hop to the station and an easy walk to the Grammar school, this home is just perfect. A pathway and steps leads to a sturdy, front door opening into a spacious reception hallway, - ideal for receiving friends and family, with slate effect, laminate flooring and feature plasterwork and cornicing. Original, stripped pine doors abound throughout, one of which leads directly into the magnificent, well-proportioned sitting room with feature fireplace housing a log burning stove and enjoying original, deep cornicing, ceiling rose and twin, large, sash windows and a further window to the side, fitted with colonial style shutters and allowing the natural light to flood in. A dining room to the other side of the hallway benefits from similar traditional features and one can imagine many happy times here entertaining friends and family. On into the true heart of this wonderful, family home - the dining kitchen cleverly conceived to evoke a contemporary, cottage feel that is so highly desired yet retaining many original features, creating a harmonious blend of the old and new. Cream, Shaker style units, Belfast sink and terra cotta flooring all add to the appeal, whilst a second log burning stove sits within a brick fire place and affords a great spot to sit and chat round the table on a cold winter’s night. Stone stairs lead down from the hallway to a spacious area of cellars with a window affording natural light. This could be converted to give further living accommodation. To the first floor, one finds three spacious, double bedrooms, (one giving access to the roof terrace over the garage) and a contemporary, modern shower room. Stairs lead up to the second floor where one finds a further double bedroom with stunning views up to the Cow and Calf rocks and across the valley. A further bedroom is presently utilised as a home office and there is a stunning, modern, four-piece bathroom with a free-standing bath and separate shower cubicle. A large, single, stone built garage with ample storage provides a great spot to store all the family paraphernalia. A private road offers off-street parking. To the rear of the property is a south facing, flagged area - ideal for relaxing in the sunshine and a roof-terrace above the garage is the perfect spot for al-fresco entertaining.

Wheatley Lane enjoys a convenient location within this popular community. A sought-after community in its own right, Ben Rhydding has good local amenities including various shops, one of the district's most sought after primary schools, church and commuter train station. The newly refurbished Wheatley Arms Pub offers good food and hostelry. Ilkley town centre is approximately a mile away and offers more comprehensive shops, restaurants, cafes and everyday amenities including two supermarkets, health centre, playhouse and library. The town benefits from high achieving schools for all ages including Ilkley Grammar School and three sought after public schools, which are all within a short drive. There are excellent sporting and recreational facilities.

The beautifully presented accommodation with GAS FIRED CENTRAL HEATING and with approximate room sizes comprises:
A pathway and steps leads from the front gate to a solid, timber door with glazed, transom light over, which opens into the grand reception hall - ideal for receiving friends and family. Original, ornate plasterwork and deep cornicing and heavy, original, solid timber doors set the tone for this stunning, family home. Stairs with turned balustrading lead to the first floor. Newly fitted, slate effect, laminate flooring is ideal as to the rear of the hallway by a half glazed, back door is a ‘boot room’ – a perfect spot for hanging up coats and kicking off muddy shoes and boots after a long walk on the moors.
A beautiful and calming, well-proportioned room having a feature fireplace with a slate hearth, housing a log burning stove. One can imagine many happy times here snuggled up in front of the fire. Original, deep cornicing and ceiling rose and twin, large, sash windows and a further window to the side allow the natural light to flood in. The windows are fitted with colonial style shutters, which combined with the engineered, oak flooring creates a most stylish environment.
A second reception room to the other side of the hallway is presently used as a formal dining room, although this would make a second sitting or family room. Tall, sash windows, deep cornicing, a ceiling rose and a fireplace with painted, original surround. This is a most charming room.
On into the true heart of this wonderful, family home - the dining kitchen, which has been cleverly conceived to evoke a contemporary, cottage feel that is so highly desired, yet retaining many original features, creating a harmonious blend of the old and new. Cream, Shaker style units with solid, timber work surfaces and tiled splashbacks. A Belfast sink sits under a south facing, sash window overlooking the rear patio and terracotta flooring adds to the appeal. A second log burning stove sits within a brick fire place with original stone mantle, affording a great spot to sit and chat round the table on a cold winter’s night. Cannon double oven with gas hob and extractor hob over. Space and plumbing for a dishwasher and washing machine.
A doorway from the hallway opens onto a flight of stone steps to a spacious cellar area with Yorkshire stone flagged flooring and a window affording natural light. This area houses the central heating boiler, consumer unit and offers further possibilities to be developed into living space.
A broad staircase from the hallway leads up to the spacious, first floor landing, which in turn gives access to all the principal, first floor rooms. Light floods in through a south facing, sash window. On the half landing is a very useful store room fitted with floor to ceiling, modern, fitted cupboards providing a great amount of storage.
Situated to the front of the property is a spacious, double bedroom with tall, sash windows to the front elevation affording long distance, Wharfe Valley views, deep cornicing and charming, cast iron feature fireplace with marble surround. Carpeted flooring and radiator.
A further spacious, double room with sash windows to the front and side elevations allowing the natural light to flood in and again affording the wonderful, Wharfe Valley views. Deep cornicing, feature cast iron fireplace, carpeted flooring and radiator.
A great sized, double bedroom with a south facing, sash window to the rear elevation, presently utilised as a casual, family room with contemporary, engineered, oak flooring. The real, ‘piece de la resistance’ are the modern, solid oak and glass doors that give access to the charming roof terrace built over the garage - perfect for relaxing or al-fresco entertaining.
House Shower Room
A truly luxurious, contemporary style shower room fitted with a corner, glazed, shower cubicle with electric shower. A modern, wall hung hand basin with modern, chrome, monobloc tap and tiled splash back. Low level w/c. Low voltage downlighting, designer, chrome radiator and ‘driftwood’ effect, laminate flooring. Twin sash windows with frosted glazing.
Stairs from the first floor with a continuation of the solid wood balustrading meander up past a window on the half landing to the second-floor landing, which boasts a full range of modern, fitted wardrobes and gives access to a further two bedrooms and a stunning, designer, four-piece bathroom.
This would be an ideal teenager’s room and could be classed as a studio having a Velux window that perfectly frames the iconic view of the Cow and Calf and allows natural light to flood in. A UPVC, double glazed, dormer window to the front elevation further enhances the Wharfe Valley views. To complement the studio feel is an original, cast iron fireplace and there is ample space for a bed, desk and comfy seating.
A south facing, single bedroom room, presently utilised as a home office, with a UPVC, double glazed, dormer window to the rear elevation, again overlooking the Cow and Calf and a further window to the side, allowing plenty of natural light to flood in. A range of modern, fitted wardrobes make good use of the space. Radiator and carpeted flooring.
A most stunning bathroom, fitted with a modern, free standing bath with chrome mixer tap and separate hand shower, a shower cubicle with a thermostatic shower and glass door, a wall hung wash basin with chrome mixer tap, a low level w/c and towel radiator. Low voltage downlighting and ‘driftwood’ effect, laminate flooring. Sash window to the side elevation.
To the side of the property is a large, separate garage accessed from a private lane to the front with timber painted garage doors in keeping with the property and a short driveway. Power, light and a further door opens from the rear patio. Well, what can I say - this garage was rebuilt by the present owners and is absolutely immaculate having full length, modern, gloss white units continuing the theme of excellent storage throughout this wonderful family home. This would make a great bike workshop and certainly create storage space for all the family paraphernalia.
The property is set on a private road to the front and side affording ample parking. A pathway with stone steps leads to the front door.
A side gate gives access to the rear, flagged area, which benefits from sunshine for most of the day - ideal for relaxing. The absolute genius idea was to create a flagged, patio roof garden over the garage accessed from upstairs. This is the most wonderful, private space in which to enjoy al-fresco entertaining.
