Property description

An exceptional stone built country house providing superb family accommodation of significant quality and including a leisure wing, annexe and cottage in a very convenient yet discreet location close to nearby commercial centres. Standing within delightful gardens and grounds extending to around 8.55 hectares (21 acres).

Otley 1 mile, Ilkley 5 miles, Leeds 13 miles, Bradford 12 miles, Leeds Bradford Airport 6 miles.

Maple Grange is a most impressive country house, constructed of stone under a stone slate roof and standing in beautiful landscaped grounds extending to approximately 8.55 hectares (21 acres). Opportunities to acquire substantial country houses such as Maple Grange are hard to find, especially of this quality. The property has been sympathetically improved by the current owners to provide extensive accommodation of approximately 7500 sq ft (GIA), which includes a superb leisure wing with a heated indoor pool and entertaining area, a one bedroom annexe and a separate two bedroom cottage.

The property occupies a discreet position and is approached via a shared tree lined drive which leads up to remote controlled security gates, which in turn provide access to the superb gardens which run around the property and include large lawned areas with well stocked beds and borders and a rose garden. To the rear of the house there is a courtyard giving access to the garage block, annexe and cottage.

The land lies principally to the south and west and is made up of several paddocks which include a traditional stable block , barn, potting shed and greenhouse.

The property's position makes it highly accessible to the nearby commercial centres of Leeds and Bradford. Maple Grange is well placed for rail access into both cities (and in to nearby Ilkley), which is available nearby at Burley in Wharfedale as well as Menston and from where frequent services operate throughout the day. The nearby towns of Ilkley and Otley offer an extensive range of everyday shopping, social and recreational facilities . In addition, Leeds Bradford International Airport is within approximately 10 minutes drive.
