'Loxleigh House' a substantial, six bedroom, Victorian end terrace with separate coach house and basement flat (ideal rental/Airbnb opportunity), beautifully presented throughout, with a west facing courtyard garden and invaluable off street parking. Built in 1900, the house has been lovingly updated and maintained by the current owners with high quality fixtures and fittings and enjoys a great location close to the moors and Ilkley centre and has stunning long distance views

The property offers fantastic living accommodation where every member of the family can find their own space and the separate basement flat offers an exciting Airbnb or rental opportunity. There are not many houses which boast so many rooms with such grand proportions and stunning finish and this property will not hang around for long. An early viewing is highly recommended. The property is set over four floors with entrance vestibule with attractive, original tiled flooring, impressive reception hall with solid wood flooring, high ceiling and beautiful, ornate coving, stunning sitting room with tall bay window and fabulous marble fireplace with multifuel stove. A large dining room with granite fireplace and west facing balcony with stunning views and a high quality, breakfast kitchen with a range of integral appliances complete the ground floor accommodation. A wide staircase with solid wood balustrade leads up to the first floor landing where one finds a four-piece, house bathroom with underfloor heating, two very spacious double bedrooms and single bedroom (which would make a lovely en suite shower room to the master) all affording beautiful, long distance views. The stairs continue up to the second floor landing where there are two good sized double bedrooms, both with fitted furniture, one having an en suite shower room and a good sized single bedroom, currently used as a home office. This property just keeps on giving with stone steps leading down from the kitchen to the lower ground floor where there is a useful storage room, utility area, rear porch area and traditional styled cloakroom. A separate, well presented basement flat with its own access into a fitted kitchen, open into a large lounge and with double bedroom with fitted furniture and three piece bathroom completes the accommodation. This is a great rental opportunity and has been successfully rented for a number of years. Outside the property benefits from a tarmacadam double drive to the front and a Yorkshire stone patio behind stone walling and smart, wrought iron railings sets the house well back from the road. To the rear there is a good sized, low maintenance, sunny, west facing courtyard garden with mature borders and a large, two storey coach house, currently utilised as a home gym and double garage and with the original stalls still standing. There is a quiet access lane to the rear of the garden.
