The seller told us:
“My parents moved into the house in December 1979 (just in time for the first of many happy Christmases with family and friends) and for them a detached house on a leafy street in Beckett Park was a dream come true; they wanted a family house for life, and it was just that. Shops, library, cinema and cricket ground all no more than 10 minutes walk away, and the park is 5 minutes away where the blossom trees in the spring and the millions of leaves in the autumn bring back some really fond memories. These were the main reasons they chose the area. For me, in later life, to be able to park outside on a resident pass for the cricket and rugby was very handy! It’s residents’ permit parking so no other cars are allowed; it remains quiet with little through traffic. The back garden is south facing (a sun trap) and our family have spent lots of days in the garden watching the grandchildren play, or just relaxing with a beer – memories I will always cherish. Over the years there have been some lovely neighbours and now is no different – next door, ‘over the road’ and ‘down the street’, everyone is very kind and friendly.”
Kristy Marsden, the Negotiator at Moores who will be looking after this sale, says:
“The Beckett Park estate is extremely popular with families and with the estate having very few detached houses, this is a real opportunity for someone. I can imagine buyers will want to knock the kitchen and dining room into one, and then perhaps add patio or bi-fold doors out to the garden. There’s even scope for extending the house, and making it four bedrooms. We haven’t looked into the planning but the garden could accommodate either a side or rear extension – or even both!”
From the centre of Headingley at the junction of the A660 Otley Road and North Lane, proceed along the A660 out of Leeds and at the next set of major traffic lights turn left into St Anne’s Road. Take the first right into Becketts Park Drive, immediately left into Becketts Park Road and at the T-junction turn left into Becketts Park Crescent where this property can be found on the left-hand side.A brief history of this area
