The seller’s daughter told us:

“This is an amazing house to grow up in. It’s been our family home for almost 40 years, which speaks of how well it has served that purpose. It’s a very much loved house that’s been well maintained and updated to provide a sense of warmth and depth.

Balbec Avenue is a street that people rarely move from. It’s a lovely neighbourhood only a short walk from the centre of Headingley, along with everything this superb suburb has to offer.

The house has a great aspect. Its layout and space lends itself perfectly to family life. It has a kitchen-diner that is at the heart of the house, a third bedroom that is a good size, and a wonderful garden in which children can lose themselves in their adventures. The loft is a perfect space for Lego layouts, home working and painting, and the cellar provides utility, workshop and storage.”

Michael Davies, a Director at Moores, says:

“The garden is without doubt one of the main features of this lovely family home. It’s a true ‘wildlife’ garden – well stocked and cared for complete with a delightful summerhouse at the end. We believe the house was built in the 1920’s, and it has some features that many semis built in the 1930’s and later don’t have – higher ceilings, parquet flooring and basements, which are so useful. The owners have lived here for many years and looking at the Land Registry, there’s not a lot of sales turnover to these properties – they clearly are ‘forever homes’.

Property Location

From the centre of Headingley proceed down Shaw Lane from the A660 Otley Road and keep to the right which leads into Grove Lane. Take the third turning on the right into Balbec Avenue and proceed up the hill. This property is on the right-hand side towards the top of the hill.

I knew my gut and head instinct to choose Moores was the right one – to my mind you are head and shoulders above any other firm I have come into contact with over my whole Headingley house-search. Very grateful to you for everything.

I’ve just left a Moores managed property after ten years renting there and I have always found them very professional. I liked the regular inspections, and maintenance always dealt with any issues quickly, even non-urgent ones. Communication was excellent, I’ve always been very happy with the service. I was sorry to leave.
