“This is a real ‘roses around the door’ cottage,” says Michael Davies, the Director at Moores looking after this sale. 

“This two bedroom stone cottage is full of character and along with its neighbours has a steeply pitched slate roof and overhanging eaves. Such architectural details which were indulgent for small homes of the era. We believe the first residents were tenant-gardeners to the large Victorian homes that had recently been built around Alma Road and Wood Lane. This was probably during the mid 1800’s. The new, imposing, villas had extensive grounds that required daily attendance by gardeners to keep them looking smart. These properties were provided to the gardeners so could live close to where they worked. The gardeners may must have been well respected by their employers to deserve such quality homes.

The old adage that ‘location, location, location’ are the three most important things about a property is true. And for a two bedroom stone cottage you can’t get better than this. It’s nicely tucked away from the busy centre of Headingley, yet handy for the shops, cafes, bars and restaurants.

The seller told us:

“Having studied at the University in Leeds, some of my happiest memories as a student were living in Headingley, with easy access into the city centre and all the pubs, restaurants and cafés of this vibrant suburb. I was initially looking for my first house, and this cottage appeared for sale. It was a house that needed some renovating, but nothing else compared to its charm and its architectural interest on the market and I immediately fell in love with the property.

The cottage is tucked away from the main road, with a private garden, perfect for BBQs and entertaining friends or a place to stay after a night out. The street has always been a friendly place to live, with young professionals and young families living on the street of only 8 of these distinct cottages. The house has the benefits of peace and privacy, listening to the birds in this conservation zone, but within a stone’s throw of central Headingley.”

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.
