Calling character property lovers! Available for sale is this truly one of a kind lodge house within the famous St Ives Estate. Betty’s lodge has a long and well documented history dating back to the early 1800’s and character lovers will appreciate the restoration and renovation done by the current owners on this gardener’s cottage.

Harden is a semi rural village to the west of Bingley. Encapsulating the beautiful ‘St Ives Estate’, Harden has a lovely rural feel to it, without being in the middle of no where! This very sought after area has a fantastic mix of properties, ranging from 1800’s farmhouses to modern luxury developments; but still manages to retain the privacy and desirability that buyers flock to! The location is approximately 2 miles distant from Bingley town centre which offers a range of shops, amenities, bars, restaurants and well respected primary and secondary schools. Bingley is also well served by excellent road and rail links to other West and North Yorkshire business centres which include Skipton, Ilkley, Bradford and Leeds.

The main room at the front of the cottage is a large living/ sitting room which is illuminated by four sets of wooden double and single glazed windows which are all custom made in the original mock gothic design and colour in accordance with the house’s Grade II listing. There is a large open fire within the hearth which has a clear and working flue.

Kitchen/ Dining Room
At the other side of the ground floor is the very nicely redone kitchen/ diner.

There is a built in fridge, freezer, dishwasher, washer/ dryer and hidden pantry space. There are quartz worktops adorning the units.

Bedroom Two
The second bedroom is also located on the ground floor and is a good sized double bedroom which has two large feature windows flooding the room with natural light.

Bedroom Three
The third bedroom is also on the ground floor and would be a lovely nursery/ child’s bedroom. It could also be a home office which would be a lovely use of the space.

House Bathroom

First Floor
Master Bedroom
The master bedroom on the first floor is a very large room which sits within the unique design of the roof.

There is the exposed stone chimney breast within the room and there is also impressive storage in the eaves of the house.
Externally at the front there is a fantastic front garden which has a double width driveway for off street parking too. Betty’s Lodge was originally a gardener’s cottage and the current owners have taken that to heart keeping the grounds and gardens immaculately cared for year round. There are lawns with planted boarders to both sides and there is a large decking area which is great for entertaining. The views to all sides are unparalleled being set in the heart of the St Ives estate.

The cottage is Grade II listed and in its restoration all planning permission has been obtained and signed off. The property is freehold despite being within the estate. The property is on mains gas and electric with spring water from the estate and sceptic tank sewage set away from the property.
