Property Description

Welcome to Southlands Avenue, a four-bedroom semi-detached home in Moortown. A short walk into Chapel Allerton, this home is offered chain free and has been sympathetically modernised by the current owners. The property offers well-proportioned rooms, high ceilings and the period features you would expect from a 1930’s build. The bright kitchen diner provides an entertaining space which opens up into the impressive south-facing garden, while the high-pitched roof offers extension potential through loft conversion (subject to permitted development).

Set well back from the road, providing privacy and seclusion, the spacious driveway offers ample room for multiple cars and is flanked by a beautifully landscaped front garden and a lush green lawn. Enter through the porch into a large light hallway which benefits from being double height in areas and a large window above the staircase.

The first room you encounter is a serene living room featuring a large bay window. The large and mature front garden and raised positioning on the road result in an enviable outlook. The original wood and marble fireplace is the centrepiece of the room, with further period features on the walls and high ceilings adding to the room’s charm. Continue down the hallway to the stylish downstairs bathroom, which boasts patterned flooring, dark blue and white walls, and a chic two-piece suite comprising a sink and toilet.

Proceed to the heart of the home: the open-plan kitchen, dining and living area. The shaker style kitchen offers plenty of cupboard space along with integrated appliances, with a Rangemaster cooker and a grey granite worktop adding to the elegance of the kitchen area. The dining area comfortably fits the current six person dining table, with plenty of space to increase this for those special occasions, while the snug area provides an additional area for hosting family and friends. As in the living room, there is an abundance of period features: the high ceilings continue; another large original marble fireplace; and even the original servant’s bells!

Head upstairs to a spacious landing leading to four bedrooms and the family bathroom.

The spacious master bedroom, featuring built-in wardrobes, offers a tranquil view of the beautiful back garden making it a great space to relax. The second bedroom, ideal for guests or family members overlooks the front of the property, this room is both beautiful and quiet, complete with white built-in wardrobes.

Bedroom three is another double room, currently utilised as a nursery, overlooking the serene back garden. The final bedroom overlooks the front of the property, this versatile space is currently used as a home office, but could easily serve as a bedroom. Along the hallway, you’ll find the family bathroom, which includes a three-piece suite with a shower over the bath, sink, and toilet. Silver fixtures and spotlights add a modern touch, while the light blue decor and white backsplash in the shower area create a fresh, inviting atmosphere.

Access to the loft is currently in the upstairs hallway. The loft is partially boarded to provide some additional storage space, however the opportunity to extend into this space (subject to permitted development) is clear from the height of the roof and the number of similar developments along the road.

Step outside into the enchanting garden, accessible through the double doors from either the dining room or kitchen. The patio, surrounded by mature trees, offers a lovely area to sit and relax. The garden also features a charming greenhouse area, a pond, and an adorable swing seat, perfect for enjoying the outdoors.

Located in Moortown, this home is within walking distance of Chapel Allerton’s high street, where you can explore independent shops, cafes, restaurants, and other amenities. For any last-minute shopping, Sainsbury’s Local on Harrogate Road is less than a quarter mile away. Families with young children will appreciate the proximity to a number of nurseries, including Holly House Nursery, Angels Nursery, and Leafield Nursery. Manor Wood Primary School, Carr Manor Primary, and Immaculate Heart of Mary Catholic Primary Schools are all within a 5-minute drive. For older children, Carr Manor Community School and Allerton Grange School are both a short drive away. Excellent transport links via Scott Hall Road, King Lane, and Harrogate Road ensure easy connectivity.

This property embodies a perfect blend of comfort, elegance, and convenience, making it an ideal home for families and professionals alike.
