It goes without saying that the Ilkley area is one of the most desirable places to live in Yorkshire. The picturesque spa town boasts a fascinating history and has some of the county’s most beautiful countryside right on its doorstep. With cities such as Leeds and Bradford accessible via train in just minutes and the area’s top-performing schools all within easy travelling distance, family homes in Ilkley and its neighbouring villages are much sought after.
We regularly scour the property market to see what’s available and during our browse of the market in Ilkley, we stumbled across this unique home in Burley in Wharfedale.
This 3-bed bungalow is currently on the market for £1,295,000 and is situated on Burley in Wharfedale’s highly regarded Moor Lane
Marketed by Dacre Son & Hartley of Ilkley, The Old Reservoir is a unique and luxuriously appointed home designed around period features of the original build and a gorgeous central living area. Set back in a discreet location with a private gated driveway, the property comes with a significant amount of land, private parking space and a large garage. It also boasts magnificent views across Wharfedale which the previous owners no doubt enjoyed gazing out upon from the property’s gorgeous floor-to-ceiling arched windows and French doors.
As well as its beautiful central living area with stone pillars and archways, this unique property boasts an additional sitting room and a large open-plan dining kitchen with integrated appliances, contemporary units and, just like the central living area – French doors leading out onto the property’s gorgeous terrace and sweeping lawns.
The spacious and tastefully decorated family home has three large bedrooms. The elegant master bedroom boasts a luxurious en-suite bathroom and its own private terrace. The two guest rooms each have fitted wardrobes and share a shower room/cloakroom.
This gorgeous property has been designed and built to the highest of standards and with extensive eco-friendly features, but what we love about this the most is how the original stonework has been made to perfectly complement the property’s unique and contemporary architectural design. This is most certainly a property with the WOW factor and entertaining guests here would be an absolute joy in all weathers.
You may have thought initially that £1.2m for a bungalow is a little bit steep but we suspect you’ve changed your mind! We certainly have!
