Morris Lane, Kirkstall, LS5 3EN 5 Bedroom Semi Detached House

From the summerhouse at the very end of the garden, the Kirkstall Valley extends 180 degrees, a picturesque panorama. Framed by trees the stunning Havilande Villa sits in the distance. Built in 1899, this much-loved family home has belonged to the current owner for 46 years and has been beautifully preserved and sympathetically updated. This most impressive stone built, semi-detached home features; views of the medieval Kirkstall Abbey, original period features, five bedrooms, two reception rooms, an extended kitchen, useful cellars, very large gardens and a summerhouse with built in garden shed behind. It is at the heart of Kirkstall Abbey Conservation area.

The accommodation comprises: An entrance vestibule with original coloured leaded glazed doors and stripped wooden floor which continues into the welcoming hallway which has: Lyncrusta wallpaper to the dado rail which extends to the very top of the house, decorative ceiling plasterwork, deep skirtings, original mahogany newel post and doors to: The main two reception rooms (currently used as a sitting room and family room) separated from each other by three ecclesiastical style openings . Light floods through the south facing bay window to the front, picking up the birds in the plasterwork frieze. The cosy family room has an open fireplace with original wooden mantle. To the rear is an extended dining kitchen fitted with a range of bespoke units with light blue Corian worktops over, under floor heating, an additional gas fire and plenty of light from Velux windows above and sash windows to the side. The ideal place for family meals and entertaining. Beyond the kitchen is the back kitchen / utility space and guest w.c.. Also accessed from the hallway is the spacious basement level. The basement comprises: two rooms and has external access. On the first floor the landing has the staircase up to the second floor and doors to: A large bathroom fitted with a four-piece suite including bath and shower. A separate w.c. There are two double bedrooms on this floor. The front bedroom has amazing views of the Abbey. There is also a single bedroom (currently used as an office). On the second floor the landing is open with a stripped pitch pine banister and doors to: A double bedroom to the rear and a fourth double bedroom to the front. Each has a fireplace and built in cupboard and the front bedroom has views again of the Abbey and over the Aire valley. Elevated to the front and set back from the road with a tiered garden, the Southerly aspect offers the perfect place to grow an abundance of fruit and vegetables. To the rear of the property are two parking spaces and a stone paved patio. Beyond is a very large rear garden which extends as far as the eye can see. Again, bountiful with espalier fruit trees and mature shrubs. At the end of the garden is a stylish wooden summerhouse. It has mains water and power, and a phone line connection for WIFI, so would make an idea home office. The deck to the front is the perfect place to sit and observe nature and this stunning home.
