Braeburn is a stunning home dating back to the 1911, offering a superb combination of character and lateral space in a wonderful setting in approximately 3/4 of an acre. The house was built for Bertie Booth the owner of Booths Mill and enjoys a prominent position with stunning views over towards Calverley and Rodley. With over 1,000 square feet of carpeted garaging it is an ideal home for anyone with a need for secure and practical storage with a keen interest in motor vehicles.
Located just after Water Lane which provides a rural walk to some of Horsforth’s best schooling and the house sits within Horsforth’s coveted catchment area for excellent education facilities which are all within close proximity.
This wonderful house has been carefully and lovingly restored and extended by the current owners, transforming the property into one very special home. The extensive accommodation on offer is particularly adaptable and creates a real sense of space and has been designed to make the most of the views of the wonderful mature gardens and valley to the front.
The ground floor flows well and gives a perfect balance, combining family and more formal areas, with the beautifully proportioned living room and equally impressive more formal dining room. The drawing room to the front of the house is fit for the most formal of occasions and takes advantage of the house’s wonderful position and enviable views. The heart of the house is the extended open plan kitchen, which is very well equipped and functional and leads to the rear hall with stairs down to a full height four room cellar.
The first floor has a beautiful galleried landing area and you are truly spoilt with the rural views from bedrooms one and two. The master bedroom has a luxury ensuite and is of generous proportions. Bedroom two is equally as impressive and there are three further bedrooms in total with one being used as a home office.
The extensive grounds of Braeburn, which can be enjoyed from every room in the house, surround the property creating a vast degree of privacy with mature bedded borders and have been designed with several wonderful areas to relax and entertain. There is an orchard, a summer house, a pond area, a greenhouse and three raised beds. The garden and decked terrace areas take advantage of the sun at any time of the day. There is a stone built outside toilet which is ideal for playing children and work men/women.
The property is approached along a driveway with electric gates. Plenty of parking is available to the rear in addition to 1246 square feet (approx 6-7 cars) of carpeted and tiled garage and gym space with power, lighting and plumbing with two double electric up and over garage doors. The footings are in place to build above the garaging subject to PP. and building regs. There is a carport which comfortably houses a 28 foot caravan and has served as a dry area if required in wet conditions.
Braeburn is undoubtedly one of Horsforth's best addresses and the position and the plot are really hard to beat in the LS18 area. Viewing by appointment is highly advised if you are looking for a family home to suit you for decades to come.
