Michael Moore, Moores Senior Partner, says:
“This used to be a lovely family home, but for a number of years our client has let it to both professional tenants and students. It now needs some serious updating, and it doesn’t make sense for our client to retain it and do this work on a piecemeal basis, when someone with a serious budget can breathe new life back into what is a wonderful piece of Headingley real estate.”
Lucy Relins, the negotiator handling this sale, says:
“Wood Lane is literally a 5 minute walk from all the shops on Otley Road, 10 minutes from Waitrose in Meanwood and around 30 minutes from the university and city centre along Woodhouse Ridge and the ginnels of Headingley Hill onto Headingley Lane. The lack of a decent garden will deter some families, but with all the green space around Wood Lane and Balbec Avenue, there’s no shortage of somewhere to go walking or cycling, playing football, etc. I can see both property investors and families loving this property; for a professional couple the upper parts would make a great home and The Garden Flat would pay a substantial part of the mortgage! For a buy-to-let landlord the house and flat are let, with the property producing an instant income.”
BY CAR – From the centre of Headingley proceeding north along the A660 Otley Road, turn right at the traffic lights at Otley Road/St Anne’s Road, into Shaw Lane. Follow the road to the right onto Grove Lane. Continue past the Catholic Church on the right by Wood Lane and take the next right into Woodland Park Road. Proceed to the top of the road and turn left onto Wood Lane. This property can be found on the left-hand side. ON FOOT – at the junction of Otley Road, North Lane and Wood Lane, proceed along Wood Lane, past Nando’s, and through the bollards. Continue along Wood Lane for approximately 300m and this property can be found on the left.A brief history of this area
