The seller told us:
“We bought this house in 2007 and we’ve brought our children up here. It’s been great for all the amenities in the area. Now our family are grown up we’re looking to downsize, and already have a house in the area. The flat’s rent has paid our mortgage for many years, although if anyone has a dependant relative, or needs an office to work from, needs au pair accommodation or whatever, the flat has lots of alternative uses. We even considered making it part of our house at one stage – but realised we already had plenty of room!”
Michael Moore, Moores Senior Partner says:
“One of my first clients lived here when I started working in Headingley back in 1981 and I always thought this was a fascinating property. It’s one of the most unique I’ve been in, in terms of layout and character. I suspect the next purchaser will want to refurbish it in some areas, but the space it offers, and the style sets it apart from virtually any other house I know. The flat adds another dimension, not only in terms of the income helping to meet any mortgage costs or providing a sort of pension, but also it adds an additional layer of security and could be really useful having someone handy to look after the family’s dogs or cats perhaps during holiday times.”
From the centre of Headingley by the Arndale Centre proceed north along the A660 Otley Road and turn right at the first set of traffic lights into Shaw Lane. Take the second turning on the left (actually continuing on Shaw Lane rather than diverting off to the right down Grove Lane) and this property can be found on the left-hand side just after the first left turning into Burton Crescent.A brief history of this area
