Unspoilt by the present owners, Stubham Lodge provides impressive accommodation of elegant proportions retaining many original features. The property has obvious potential for extension to the rear and planning approval was granted in 2015 for a two storey extension to create a new double garage with a double bedroom and bathroom above. The house stands within charming and principally lawned grounds which enjoy an unusually high degree of privacy. To the rear of the property is a single building plot of about a quarter of an acre accessed separately from Curly Hill, which is available to purchase by separate negotiation.  

Middleton has long been regarded as one of the town's premier residential districts, occupying a peaceful setting on the southern facing bank of the River Wharfe less than a mile from the town centre. Its heritage stems back from the release of building land by the Myddleton family around the end of the 19th century whereupon high quality and individual houses were built. Middleton plays host to the town's rugby and cricket clubs along with the swimming pool and lido. Ilkley is within a pleasant walk and offers excellent amenities including high class shopping and restaurants, boutique cinema, supermarkets and some of the best schools in the country. From Ilkley town centre there is a frequent Metro service into the cities of Bradford and Leeds making it an ideal base for the commuter with connections from Leeds to London Kings Cross.
