The sellers told us:
“My husband bought the house around 11 years ago, after renting on a neighbouring street. I moved in 7 years ago, since when we’ve modernised the house inside and out. The garden gets the sun from midday through to sunset in the summer, so its lovely to sit out. We knocked the outhouse through to form the walk-in pantry and boarded the loft for plenty of storage. My husband wanted to stay in the area for the amenities and transport options – Headingley train station is less than 10 minutes’ walk away, there are bus stops at the top and bottom of the road and I sometimes walk to work along the canal towpath (an hour into town on foot – much less by bike). Kirkstall Bridge shopping centre, Morrisons, the sports centre and Kirkstall Abbey are a short walk away – we’ve spent many afternoons walking through the Abbey grounds (which are brilliant for last minute picnics on sunny days) and drinking coffee in the museum café. The Abbey also hosts events throughout the year and when there is the odd sporting event along Abbey Road you can watch from the bottom of the road. There’s also a community hub with an indoor play area for young children which has been priceless since we had our little one! There are various good restaurants close by, with many more in nearby Headingley, where we used to eat and have nights out in the summer. Although the house is in a terrace, the stair layout between the living rooms means we rarely hear noise from our immediate neighbours, both of whom are very nice; one has a second home abroad and is away occasionally, and the other a young professional couple who rent. The neighbours in the street who work from home happily take in parcel deliveries. Nearly everyone in the street are either professional couples or young families. Our move has been forced by the arrival of our son and the practicality of being closer to family. We love this house and will be very sad to say goodbye to it, and the neighbours. We are sure that the next owners will enjoy living here as much as we have.”
Rachel Abbott, the Negotiator at Moores looking after this sale, says:
“The Norman’s are popular streets for first time buyers, anyone planning to downsize and for buy-to-let landlords, due to the convenience of the sports centre and shops at the Kirkstall Bridge complex, the nearby train station and Kirkstall Abbey and its lovely grounds. The area has pubs, cafés and restaurants, is within easy reach of Headingley and Horsforth and on a direct bus route into town. The location seems to suit most people’s needs.”
From the junction of the A65 Kirkstall Road/Abbey Road and Kirkstall Lane, by the Kirkstall Sports Centre, proceed west along the A65 towards Kirkstall Abbey and Horsforth and after 300m or so turn right into Norman Mount (before the Tapas Bar and Kirkstall Abbey Museum field) where this property can be found on the left-hand side.A brief history of this area
