About this property

This stunning, two bedroomed apartment is located on the second floor of the handsome, historic Ilkley landmark building that is Wells House, designed by the renowned architect Cuthbert Brodrick, who was also responsible for the design of some of Yorkshire’s most iconic, Victorian buildings including Leeds Town Hall, the Corn Exchange and The Grand Hotel in Scarborough.

The position of this fine building on the edge of Ilkley Moor is most appealing, combining proximity to beautiful, open countryside and superb views yet being within walking distance of the centre of Ilkley with all its many amenities. Wells House was converted into luxury apartments in 2003 and offers a highly desirable blend of traditional grandeur with luxury, contemporary styling. Apartment 18 provides a rare opportunity to acquire a spacious, elegant apartment in this enchanting and captivating setting. Beautifully presented, the luxurious accommodation is accessed from the imposing atrium reception hallway via the glass-sided lifts. From the communal, galleried landing one enters the spacious, welcoming hallway and on through double doors into a generously proportioned, through living/dining room, a wonderful spot in which to both relax and entertain with a doorway leading into a high quality, bespoke breakfast kitchen. Two immaculately presented, double bedrooms are both supported by stylish en-suite shower rooms.
One can only feel in awe at the sight of the stunning façade of Wells House. Steps lead up to the grand, front entrance door with entry ‘phone (and CCTV system).
