Gilstead is a village at the top of Bingley, backing onto the beautiful and scenic Baildon Moor! This very sought after area has a fantastic mix of properties, ranging from 1800’s stone built houses to modern luxury developments; but still manages to retain the community which makes Gilstead stand out in Yorkshire! The location is less than a mile from Bingley town centre which offers a range of shops, amenities, bars, restaurants and well respected primary and secondary schools. Bingley is also well served by excellent road and rail links to other West and North Yorkshire business centres which include Skipton, Ilkley, Bradford and Leeds.
On the ground floor of this fantastic house, access is gained via the front ENTRANCE HALL. This is a fantastic space which is lined with storage cupboards (great for family use).
SECOND LIVING ROOM/ STUDY
The entrance hall leads straight forward to a fantastic reception room/ LARGE STUDY (currently being used as a living/ dining room) which faces onto the lovely rear garden.
Through the other door in the entrance hall, you will find yourself in the heart of the house; the beautiful and in-keeping KITCHEN. The kitchen plays host to a good amount of wall and base units for storage, a fantastic looking gas fire in a stone lined hearth and has a beautiful BEAMED CEILING. The kitchen could comfortably host a large dining room table.
ORANGERY/ SUN ROOM
To the rear of the kitchen, accessed via double doors is an ORANGERY/ SUN ROOM! Illuminated by three rear facing windows, and three velux style windows, this room is currently being utilised as a DINING ROOM but could be used a number of different ways, and also provides access to the rear patio and garden beyond.
MAIN LIVING ROOM
At the far end of the ground floor, there is an amazing LIVING ROOM which has a heavily beamed ceiling, dark wood panelling on some of the walls, and is very welcoming. The room is worked around a real OPEN FIRE, with a stone surround and wooden mantle.
The master bedroom is a fantastic room with two deep set windows looking over the rear garden and far beyond over the valley. The bedroom (like the rest of the house) retains some character features and is a good sized double bedroom.
The second largest bedroom is also rear facing, looking out over the fantastic garden and is a comfortable double bedroom. This room also is illuminated by two windows.
The third bedroom is a lovely space and is another double bedroom! With two normal windows, and two velux style windows, light is a real feature in this 1800’s house.
The fourth bedroom is in the far end of the house near the master bedroom, it could fit a double bed in it, but would make a better generous single bedroom with ample room for other furnishings.
The house bathroom is a fantastic room (again with two windows), it houses a three piece white suite, which is complimented by the brass fittings keeping in with the style of the property.
There is an additional shower room on the first floor, which has a three piece suite including a shower.
LOWER GROUND FLOOR
VAULTED ORIGINAL CELLAR
There is an amazing vaulted original cellar under the original cottages. There were once two cellars, but now they have been knocked through into one large space, great for storage or even a cheeky wine collection!
MODERN HEAD HEIGHT CELLAR
There is also a more modern cellar with full head height, which can be accessed off the vaulted cellar or from outside in the back garden. This is also great storage and possibly a nice workshop etc.
Externally to the front, there is a block paved area for off street parking. This is a large driveway and can comfortably fit two cars side by side. To the side and to the rear of the house, there is an amazing garden full of life. Backing onto fields, this garden is tiered and each terrace is lovelier than the last. For any budding Alan Titchmarsh’s out there, this is a fantastic plot to work with! Bordering the rear of the house is a large patio with Yorkshire stone flags.
