A comfortable and welcoming family home overlooking open green space in a residential area of east Leeds, within a short distance of two primary schools rated good and outstanding by Ofsted, with bus connections and handy local amenities nearby.
The front door opens onto a reception hall with carpeted stairs rising to the first floor and solid pine internal doors opening onto the living room and kitchen diner. The carpeted living room boasts a decorative ceiling-mounted light fitting and a feature fireplace with wood-effect mantle and stone hearth surrounding a living-flame gas fire. The chimney breast is bracketed by recessed alcoves ideal for larger pieces of furniture. A TV point is installed on the side nearest the window overlooking the front garden while a radiator is fitted beneath to provide additional warmth in the winter months. The kitchen/diner overlooks the rear garden with ample soft-closing base and wall units in a light wood complementing the pastel yellow and white splashback tiling fitted above all preparation and cooking stations. The modern design incorporates granite-effect worktops, a stainless steel sink with mixer tap and drainer, an integrated electric oven and four-ring gas hob and wine rack. There is space for a dining table / chairs; an upright fridge-freezer and plumbing for a washing machine. Additional storage is provided by an under-stairs cupboard while access to the patio and private rear garden is provided by an external door in white UPVc. Carpeted stairs in the hallway lead to a landing on the first floor where more solid pine internal doors open onto two well-proportioned, carpeted double bedrooms fitted with TV points and radiators for warmth. The single bedroom, fitted with wood-effect laminate flooring, is stripped and prepared for decoration. The house bathroom has been fully tiled and includes a pedestal wash basin with separate hot and cold taps in chrome, a WC with dual flush cistern and a bath with glass splash screen and a shower above.
In our opinion this is a property with plenty of potential and, with enclosed gardens to both the front and rear, one which would suit a family with small children or pets. With cavity wall insulation, a programmable gas-fired central heating system, double glazing and low energy lighting fitted in the majority of the rooms, little work is required to make it a comfortable new home but, as ever, we would thoroughly recommend a viewing to appreciate the quality of the accommodation on offer and the pleasant residential location.
The property is separated from the road by a low, brick-built wall with access through matching pillars via a wrought-iron gate. Well-kept lawns have been laid either side of an asphalt path and are bordered by flower beds planted with mature shrubs. Waist-high timber fencing is pleasantly disguised by climbing ivy to one side while the path leads to both the UPVc front door in white and a stout, lockable timber gate allowing access to the rear of the property. To the rear is another enclosed garden laid mostly to lawn and divided by a flagstone path, with a shed to one side. Head-high timber fence panels offer privacy while a flagstone patio leads to an external door which opens onto the kitchen diner.
Wykebeck Valley Rd is in a residential area to the east of the centre of Leeds. Buses run regularly from stops within a short distance from the property while nearby amenities include two convenience stores on nearby Coldcotes Circus, which also boasts a fish and chip shop, a Chinese takeaway, a hairdressers and a sandwich bar. Gipton WMC is adjacent to the parade while Wykebeck Primary School rated good by Ofsted in in 2014 and St Nicholass Catholic Primary rated outstanding in 2009 are both within easy reach. Open green spaces nearby include walks along Wyke Beck itself just across the green and the park at Harehills while an Asda superstore at Killingbeck is just a short drive by car.
