A combination of quality modern fixtures and fittings blend effortlessly with the charm of a bygone age in this magnificent semi-detached cottage.

Ivy Lea ticks all the boxes for space, location and kerbside appeal.

The beautifully appointed business end of a large dining kitchen

The beautifully appointed business end of a large dining kitchen

It has four substantial bedrooms, a huge paved parking area to the front and secluded gardens at the rear adjoining a copse and school playing fields.

The house sits off Wakefield Road in Lightcliffe yet is a world away from the hustle and bustle of this attractive and busy village.

A focal point of this meticulously maintained property is the huge dining kitchen stretching almost 26 feet.

At the business end is a functional island with a ceramic hob and extractor chimney. And if you choose to eat at the other end, rather than turn the current sitting room into a dining area you can make sure your feet never get cold on the tiles by turning on the under floor heating.

All neat and tidy, and a useful outhouse

Ivy Lea’s lounge has oak flooring but retains its old world charm with a cast iron wood burning stove set into a period slate fireplace.

The sitting roomhas a cast iron fireplace with an open grate and sucks in light through a bay window.

One added bonus is a tanked-out cellar area which can be used as a study. Upstairs the master bedroom is en-suite with a shower unit while a house bathroom with a shower and bath serves the other three bedrooms.

Attention has been lavished outside too with a fabulous patio promentary immediately off the house overlooking the well-tended gardens.
