The seller told us:
“I moved into this house when I was a little girl. My parents moved here from York during the war and my mother fell in love with the views across Beckett Park – I remember her delight when she first saw the open aspect after we turned off St Chad’s Drive and into Batcliffe Drive. As an adult I co-ordinated the planting of the spring bulbs you see dotted around the trees and verges on the park; I wrote to all my neighbours asking for a small contribution towards a ‘bulb fund’! I’ve always been a keen gardener and the sunny rear garden here has continued to bring me joy over the years. I’ve seen families grow up during my time here and have had some lovely neighbours (some for 25+ years) who continue to be great friends. I’ve now moved to another part of Headingley but have taken lots of wonderful memories of my time at No 5 with me.”
Michael Davies, a Director at Moores, says:
“We know from experience that these family homes don’t come to market very often and we expect a lot of interest in No 5 as a consequence. This property has so much going for it – its position overlooking Beckett Park is, without question, one of the best, as well as its larger than average private garden and generous footprint overall. There’s enormous potential to transform the interior to suit modern day living eg a rear extension, an open-plan family room/kitchen and/or a principal bedroom suite on the 2nd floor. An early viewing is highly recommended.”
From the centre of Headingley proceed north along the A660 Otley Road from the Headingley Central shopping centre, through the traffic lights at Shaw Lane/St Anne’s Road and continue along the Otley Road taking the next turning left into St Chad’s Drive. Follow St Chad’s Drive up to the park entrance and follow the road around to the left into Batcliffe Drive where this property can be found on the left-hand side.A brief history of this area
