Michael Moore, a Director at Moores says:
“This was built in the mid 1800’s when the wealthy Victorian business people were anxious to get out of the smog of the city centre of Leeds into some clean, fresh, air. Headingley Hill was one of the first suburbs of Leeds to be developed with the majority of the properties facing south, across the valley to benefit from sunshine throughout the day – in Victorian times this aspect was considered a luxury! The coach house back then was a practical necessity, as the tram system in Leeds was yet to become established and certainly not a means of transport for the gentry. Today, these coach houses have thankfully been retained and restored, providing quaint and quirky homes that have a huge appeal.”
Rachel Abbott, the Negotiator at Moores looking after this sale, says:
“There are only a small number of converted coach houses in this area, but this is unique in the fact it has such a large garden; most have a ‘postage stamp’ garden area, with gardens predominantly retained for the larger ‘parent’ houses. In this instance, the garden is to the rear of the coach house making it inaccessible by anyone other than the owner of this cute property. Having the garden next to Cumberland Road also means the garden provides secure off-street parking, another luxury rarely found with this sort of property. This is truly a ‘rare opportunity’ to use the much-overused estate agency phrase!”
From the junction of the A660 Woodhouse Lane/Headingley Lane, Hyde Park Road and Woodhouse Lane (Hyde Park Corner) proceed north along Headingley Lane and take the second turning on the right into Cumberland Road, where this property can be found on the right-hand side.A brief history of this area
