There are a variety of facilities available throughout the area including assorted shops and schools in Rawdon, Yeadon and Guiseley with further amenities available in nearby Horsforth. In addition, recreational facilities and open countryside with pleasant walks are close at hand, whilst Leeds and Bradford city centres can be reached on a daily basis either by car, bus or train services with Apperley Bridge train station being less than one mile away offering connections to major city centres.
The property currently comprises a stone barn used as stabling with a hay loft over and a collection of single storey outbuildings. Planning approval has been granted to allow the buildings to be converted and extended into a three bedroomed detached dwelling.

THE SITE The courtyard design allows for driving and turning spaces together with garden area and to complete the package, paddocks to the front of the property extending to approximately 2.93 acres of land leading down to the River Aire and enjoying a southerly aspect with long distance views.
