Yorkshire Post - Property - - PROPERTY - The Chalet

ILK­LEY is part of York­shire fa­mous “Golden Triangle”, where prop­erty prices reg­u­larly out­per­form the mar­ket. First time buy­ers strug­gle here.

Prices start at about £100,00 for a two bed­room apart­ment and two bed­room ter­raced houses start at about £150,000.

The town is one of the most de­sir­able places to live – ben­e­fit­ing from its prox­im­ity to coun­try­side, in­clud­ing the fa­mous moor and its fa­cil­i­ties that in­clude su­per­mar­kets, in­de­pen­dent shops, an indoor pool and lido to­gether with a host of clubs and so­ci­eties.

It also boasts a rail­way line to Leeds that has boosted its ap­peal to wealth­ier com­muters.

Close to The Grove and town cen­tre, this very sub­stan­tial stone built Vic­to­rian semi-de­tached house has six dou­ble bed­rooms and comes with po­ten­tial for bed-and-break­fast ac­com­mo­da­tion. It also boasts a pantry.

It has a large re­cep­tion hall, cloak­room, study, sit­ting THIS de­tached pe­riod fam­ily home is aptly named and would not look out of place on an Alpine moun­tain side – as it is set in 0.76 of an acre and has lots of char­ac­ter.

It has a re­cep­tion hall, coats room, cloak­room, draw­ing room with views to Beam­s­ley Bea­con and French doors onto the gar­den, a din­ing room, study, fam­ily room, con­ser­va­tory, kitchen, break­fast and util­ity rooms. The house also has a boiler room with stor­age and a base­ment with store rooms and a wine cel­lar. Up­stairs, there are six bed­rooms and three bath­rooms.

Out­side, a paved ter­race forms a seat­ing/din­ing area with ac­cess from the con­ser­va­tory, a pond, store and a gar­den room that could be used as a play­room/of­fice/gym.
