The sellers told us:
“Reserving off-plan, we were fortunate to secure the corner plot in this cul-de-sac, which gave us a gate directly into the neighbouring woods and the communal field, which was ideal for our children to play, as well as for dog walking, cycling, etc. The woodland snowdrops, followed by the bluebells, are a particularly wonderful sight in early spring. We’d been living in this beautiful conservation area for several years and didn’t want to move away from the area as our children were at Woodhouse Grove School, nearby. The location gave us open space and tranquillity, yet we’re a few minutes’ drive from shops and schools (A65 is 3 mins away), the Golf & Tennis Club is 1½ miles, and with nearby transport links like the new Apperley Bridge train station (5 mins), Leeds Bradford Airport (15 mins), and the cities of Leeds and Bradford around 7 miles in either direction, means everything is close by. Our neighbours are friendly and respectful and do a superb job of maintaining their property and gardens, especially our retired next door neighbours who are keen gardeners! The house is very spacious having a large extension we added when our two youngest sons became teenagers – the extra space worked extremely well. Set in 10 acres we’re surrounded by farms within Green Belt of mature trees and shrubs. Cragg Wood is a special landscape area, maintained by the local Management Committee, all local home owners. Although fairly remote there is restricted access to Woodlands Drive via a security barrier from the A65 which provides a good level of security for residents.”
Kristy Marsden, the Negotiator at Moores looking after this sale, says:
“You can’t believe you’re so close to both Leeds and Bradford when you’re in Snaith Wood Mews. It’s so rural – the communal field to the rear is private to these houses, yet just beyond are fields of sheep from the nearby farm. The woods that adjoin the house full of wildlife – not just the usual garden birds – but jays, owls and even deer, so we’re led to believe by local residents. The remote location won’t suit everyone, but for those wanting a more rural lifestyle, away from the daily hustle and bustle of cars and buses, this is ideal.”
You can approach this from two directions. Knott Lane off Rawdon Road by the crematorium gives access to Woodlands Drive on the right but you will have to pass across a key-pad controlled bollard. It will be necessary for one of our negotiators to give you access this way. Alternatively, just above the Apperley Bridge train station entrance is the access to Woodlands Drive from Harrogate Road. This access is longer (approximately half a mile) to Snaith Wood Mews but has no bollard restrictions. Please note Woodlands Drive is narrow with passing places and not well lit on an evening. Daytime viewings recommended until accustomed to the road.A brief history of this area
