Grand de­sign in Har­ro­gate that’s ideally placed for town and coun­try

The in­side story

Yorkshire Post - Property - - PROPERTY NEWS -

Dob­sons of Ilk­ley was the main con­trac­tor for the 7,358 sq. ft build, which was com­pleted in 2010, and Anne planned the in­te­rior de­sign.

“We em­ployed a project man­ager but we were very hands-on and vis­ited the site reg­u­larly,” she says.

The prop­erty, which has an in­door pool, is ar­ranged over three floors and is set in gen­er­ous gar­dens. It has a liv­ing kitchen with Siematic units, a for­mal sit­ting room with a be­spoke mar­ble fire­place, a study and a morn­ing room with views over the gar­den. A glazed link leads to the util­ity room, a large fam­ily room and the leisure com­plex, which in­cludes a swim­ming pool, seat­ing area and a chang­ing and shower room.

The be­spoke stair­case fea­tures a stained glass win­dow on the half land­ing and is lit by a large chan­de­lier. The first floor has a master bed­room suite with dress­ing area and en-suite bath­room and there are four fur­ther dou­ble bed­room suites and a house bath­room. All the san­i­tary ware is by Villeroy and Boch.

A spi­ral stair­case leads up to the sec­ond floor, which pro­vides fur­ther space and po­ten­tial for two more bed­room suites.

The prop­erty also has un­der­floor heat­ing on both ground and first floors and a heat ex­change and ven­ti­la­tion sys­tem. To the rear, there is an ex­ten­sive lawned gar­den with a stone­flagged ter­race, a dou­ble garage and se­cure park­ing.

Anne and David are sell­ing to down­size to an­other self-build. They are plan­ning to con­struct a con­tem­po­rary, sin­gle-storey home.

“We thought this would be our for­ever home, which is why we didn’t spare any ex­pense on it but I have had rheuma­toid arthri­tis, which is why we have de­cided to build a bun­ga­low,” says Anne.

Daniel Rigg of Knight Frank Har­ro­gate, says: “The house of­fers lux­u­ri­ous ac­com­mo­da­tion and is su­perbly planned with fam­ily liv­ing and en­ter­tain­ing very much in mind. It oc­cu­pies a se­cure and pri­vate set­ting in well-es­tab­lished gar­dens, which ex­tend to just un­der an acre.”
