The seller told us:
“I have loved living at Drover’s Cottage these past 33 years. It is a fantastic location, with excellent access to the centre of Leeds and also easy escape to the beautiful Yorkshire countryside. Far Headingley is full of life and has great local amenities on the doorstep. The cottage is full of character, built in the mid-nineteenth century and the garden courtyard is a wonderful place to relax and enjoy the sun. My neighbours are very friendly and the only reason I am leaving is to move, to a flat, now that I’m not as young as I used to be.”
Rachel Abbott, the Negotiator at Moores looking after this sale, says:
“Far Headingley is a wonderful part of Leeds. Some of the very early cottages date back to the 1700’s, when Moor Road literally was a track from Otley in the north over what was then ancient common land, where Drovers would drive their cattle and sheep to the markets in Leeds. Moor Road isn’t shown on a 1711 map of Headingley Manor but the winding nature of what is now Moor Road is likely to be from that time. This area is full of fascinating history.”
From the centre of Headingley proceed north along the A660 Otley Road through Headingley towards West Park, Adel and Otley. Continue through the traffic lights at Shaw Lane and take the third right turning in front of the Three Horseshoes public house onto Weetwood Lane. Take the next right opposite the fish restaurant and takeaway onto Moor Road. Follow the road around the S-bend and this property can be found on the right-hand side.A brief history of this area
