This impressive family home stands at the head of Panorama Drive, enjoying beautiful and uninterrupted views to the south across sheltered landscaped gardens towards the rugged beauty of Ilkley Moor. Yan Tan (it's name meaning One and Two in old Yorkshire dialect), enjoys an endearing and warm character, the house having been a much loved family home which has been held in the same ownership for over 50 years.
Yan Tan has been thoughtfully extended over time and provides extensive ground floor living accommodation with three delightful reception rooms as well as an impressive conservatory, breakfast kitchen, and large hobbies/playroom. The first floor presently provides three large double bedrooms along with a stylish house bathroom and separate shower room. In the past the upper floor provided four double bedrooms but has been reconfigured to create an impressive master suite with a large dressing area. Many of the rooms on both levels have the advantage of the lovely aspects to the south onto the property's mature gardens.
Past developments included the creation of a double garage block to the north side of the house, which has created a charming courtyard area. To the upper floor of the garage block is a one bedroom apartment which in the past has produced a consistent rental income (let through Dacre, Son & Hartley's Residential Letting Division), but which of course could provide a home based office environment, living space for a dependant relative or room to extend the main house (subject to planning).
The sale of Yan Tan offers an incredible opportunity to acquire a unique and very appealing home - one that mixes a high degree of versatility with privacy, character and stunning views.
The former Victoria Spa town of Ilkley remains one of the north of England's most sought after communities; hardly surprising given its setting in the heart of unspoilt Wharfedale. Business centres as far apart as East Lancashire, Leeds, Bradford and Harrogate are all within comfortable daily travelling distance. From Ilkley's central railway station there are regular services throughout the day into both local cities, whilst from Leeds there are frequent connections to London Kings Cross. An international airport is just some 12 miles or so distance.
Ilkley is home to a bustling town centre with a broad choice of "high street" and local stores. There is a busy social round with an excellent choice of restaurants, cafe's and tea rooms as well as social amenities including the renowned Winter Gardens. Sports clubs are on offer for a variety of tastes including rugby, tennis, golf and squash. Ilkley is also blessed with a highly regarded schooling system with popular primary schools feeding the successful Grammar school. Private schools for children of all ages are available within daily travelling distance. Accommodation summary
