Melbourne House is accessed via a private driveway with secure wrought iron gates leading to a generous gravelled car parking area in front of a triple garage having an electric up and over door with power and lighting installed. To the immediate rear of the property is a paved patio area ideal for alfresco dining and entertaining. The rear gardens are a real selling feature of this property and are split in two. Beyond the garages is a fabulous and beautifully maintained lawned garden area being fully enclosed and enjoying a great degree of privacy. Surrounding borders house a vast variety of plants, shrubs and mature trees. The trees act as a screen to a further garden/paddock area complete with two stables perfect for those with equestrian interests.
The property is situated in the heart of the popular village of Thorner and is ideally located for those wanting a countryside location which is still within close proximity of a wide range of amenities. The vibrant centre of Leeds is a short drive away and the popular towns of Wetherby and Harrogate are also within easy reach. There are good local schools for all ages with the Grammar School at Leeds situated at the nearby Alwoodley Gates. This home represents a true one off and we would encourage any interest parties to view at their earliest convenience.
