Situation
Weeton House occupies a private yet highly
convenient location a short distance out of Weeton,
a village noted for its individual character homes.
The property sits particularly well in the heart
of the holding and faces south east with long
distance views towards the Harewood Estate and
the surrounding Lower Wharfedale countryside
particularly to the west towards Otley Chevin and
Ilkley Moor. There is a train station on the edge of
the adjoining village approximately 5 minutes drive
with connections on the Leeds Harrogate York line
to the East Coast main line to London Kings Cross.
Harrogate is approximately 15 minutes drive to the
north with the centre of Leeds some 30 minutes to
the south. Other locations within the West Yorkshire
conurbation are comfortable commuting distance
and the airport at Yeadon is only a 10/15 minute
drive.
Description
The property is believed to date from the early 19th
Century with later Victorian additions which have
maintained the symmetry of the original house.
With impressive stone elevations and a slightly
elevated setting to take advantage of the views,
the property is offered for sale for the first time in some
50 years and presents a tremendous opportunity
for modernisation and improvement to satisfy the
requirements of modern day family living in enviable
private surroundings.
The galleried central hallway gives a wonderful feeling
of space with its sweeping staircase. An elegant
drawing room compliments a well proportioned dining
room plus an ideal family sitting room and traditional
kitchen. A utility room and a classic butlers pantry are
further ground floor attractions plus a cellar and guest
cloakroom.
The first floor accommodation is no less impressive
with 4 double bedrooms including a generous master
suite, and the opportunity for further enhancement
with a substantial attic space having.
Overall the existing living accommodation extends to
some 3,900 sq ft.
Outside
The gardens and grounds of Weeton House are
exceptional as one would expect with a property of
this calibre. There is a sweeping gravelled driveway
leading to a circular parking and turning area to the
front with strategic terracing lawn and walkways that
surround the house and particularly to the south side.
The holding extends overall to some 16.5 acres with
the farmland being predominantly laid to grass
interspersed with woodland, that maintain the privacy
of the property. The land is ideal for equestrian
purposes given there are two timber stables and a tack room, in addition
to a range of outbuildings and garaging. The property
culminates with frontage to the River Wharfe to the
south side with open farmland to both the east and
west.
This is an exceptional property with considerable
potential in a highly desirable location.
