About this property

A spacious and flexible, five bedroom, detached property situated on the highly regarded Southfield Road close to all the amenities in the vibrant village of Burley in Wharfedale. Benefitting from three reception rooms, fabulous dining kitchen with bifolds and a larger than average south facing garden; this is a gem of a family home.

One enters via a smart, composite door into a welcoming hallway, the ideal spot to greet family and friends. Doors lead into the lounge, with coal effect gas fire, leading in turn into a good sized family room/snug to the rear of the property, a third reception room, the converted garage, now utilised as a formal dining room and a spacious dining kitchen to the rear. Fitted with antique white units and a range of integral appliances, with ample room for a family dining table, this is a great spot to entertain family and friends. Bifolds lead out to the spacious patio in the south facing garden and windows to the rear and side elevations enjoy lovely, far reaching views. A utility room and cloakroom complete the ground floor accommodation.
To the first floor one finds five bedrooms, one currently being used as a home office, and the well presented house bathroom with under floor heating. There is excellent storage in a recessed cupboard leading off bedroom four and in the part boarded loft space.
The property benefits from a larger than average, south facing rear garden with level lawn, spacious patio, perfect for al-fresco dining, and an area of 'wild' garden with a wide range of shrubs and trees, two ponds and gravelled areas. The sound of running water in the stream running through the garden is a delightful, calming noise. Pathways to both sides of the property lead round to the front of the house via wooden gates where there is parking for up to five cars on the tarmacadam driveway.
