A six-bedroom family home, boasting its own indoor swimming pool and nestling in the heart of one of Yorkshire’s most exclusive roads, has been launched to market through Linley & Simpson.

“Kenilworth” is located in a prime position on Duchy Road in Harrogate, sitting opposite the town’s only Grade 1 listed building - St Wilfrid’s Church.

For sale through our Harrogate office with an asking price of £1.89m, the property has been modernised and expanded by its current owner over the past three years.

The street has earned a reputation as Millionaire’s Row after Land Registry research revealed that two of Yorkshire’s ten most expensive homes to be sold were on Duchy Road, with a third on neighbouring Kent Road.

It is being put on the market as new analysis this week revealed that last year Yorkshire posted the highest increase in £1m home sales than anywhere else in the UK - up 40 per cent.

“‘Kenilworth’ is a substantial and highly impressive detached family home extending to approximately 6,500 sq ft (gross external area) of living space,” said Mark Christopher, Head of Residential Sales at Linley & Simpson.

“Properties like this, in the exclusive position it commands, rarely come onto the market.

“All of the Duchy area is sought-after - a real magnet for homebuyers from both near and far - and ‘Kenilworth’ stands proud in the prime part of it.

“It occupies an enviable south-facing position and with its corniced and ornate ceiling plasterwork, retains its character and charm

“Its living accommodation epitomises flexibility and has been designed to be suitable for a wide variety of family needs and lifestyles - from entertaining in the new living kitchen, to the teenager’s suite on the top floor.”

He added: “A stand-out feature of this property is the recently-installed wraparound sun terrace extending the full width to the rear of the property

“It also has the added dimensions of a swimming pool; a leisure suite including a sauna and gym: and a private well-screened garden, to three sides.”

The property is set across four floors. The ground floor comprises vestibule and entrance hall, a lounge with square bay window overlooking St Wilfrid’s, dining room, music room, living kitchen, a family dining area and a cloakroom.

The top floor consists of a teenager’s bedroom suite extending the full width of the front of the home, plus a double guest room and bathroom.
