Woodridge was designed for the present vendor’s family and offers thoughtfully- planned spacious accommodation, ideally suited to those seeking a high-calibre bungalow.

Entered through a large central reception hall, the property provides a principal reception room with broad splay bay window and patio doors overlooking the front garden, ornate cornicing and a marble fireplace, together with a dining room with patio door into the rear garden, and a very pleasant breakfast kitchen with Shaker-style units, and a useful utility off.

An inner hallway provides access to three double bedrooms – all of which have fitted furniture and en-suite facilities, while the master bedroom also has a dressing area.

Adding to the appeal of the property is a guest annexe, running over the full width of the integral double garage below, with a kitchenette and shower room.

Woodridge has ample parking, supplementing the garage, while externally there are also level, manageable gardens, mostly laid to lawn but with very pleasant terraced seating areas.

There is attractive shrub planting to the boundaries along with a stone-paved terrace and lawn to the front of the property with fruit trees. The integral double garage has a remote control up-and-over door, power, light and rear courtesy door.

The gardens continue down the eastern side of the house to the rear where there is a further lawn, paved terrace accessed via a patio door from the house, along with an upper-level stone paved terrace which forms a very pleasant seating/barbecue area. There is also a garden store/workshop.

The charming annexe apartment over the double garage is reached up a short flight of steps, and would be ideal for those seeking somewhere for a dependant relative, staff or to use as a home based office.

Middleton is a popular residential area – its history dating back to the release of lands by the Middleton family and the construction of the ‘new’ river bridge at the beginning of the last century.

The area is renowned for its quality of architecture, mature trees and south-westerly facing orientation – and is home to Ilkley's cricket and rugby clubs as well as the swimming pool and public tennis courts. A short walk from Owler Park Road over the old river bridge provides access to a couple of pubs and a tennis club.
