Situation
Ashling House is a North Leeds hidden gem situated on the northern edge of the city near Headingly Golf Club and close to an extensive range of recreational amenities and day-to-day facilities in Adel. The property faces south west and sits in delightful landscaped grounds that afford a high degree of privacy that one would expect with a property of this calibre. The discreet nature of the setting belies its convenience with Leeds city centre some 7 miles to the south east and within commuting distance of the West Yorkshire conurbation. For travel further afield Leeds Bradford airport is a 10/15 minutes drive and for those with more country orientated pursuits Ashling House is quite literally on the edge of Leeds and so within a matter of a few minutes of country walks around the likes of Eccup reservoir, Golden Acre Park and the wider countryside of Lower Wharfedale.

Description
It is offered for sale for the first time in 44 years during which time Ashling House has been an exceptional family home. The sale is a unique opportunity to acquire a Georgian property in a prime location. The living accommodation extends over 2 floors for ease of living, being some 4500sqft (419 sqm) and offers a superb opportunity to enjoy stylish living of generous but manageable proportions.

Largely built in 1767 and now Grade II Listed, there is a grand frontage that faces open fields and visitors regularly comment on its immediate visual impact. Entered through secure electric gates into a sweeping circular gravelled driveway the property is of classic Georgian proportions and layout. The impressive central hallway is flanked by a formal sitting and drawing room, the latter connecting to a strategically and most impressive conservatory that overlooks the formal gardens. A well-proportioned breakfast kitchen leads across to a separate dining room that could also be used as a fifth bedroom given the adjoining wetroom/WC. There is also a separate guest cloakroom.

The first floor bedroom accommodation is equally well proportioned including 4 double bedrooms with the master suite and guest bedroom both having en suite facilities. The 2 further double bedrooms are served by a house bathroom.

Ashling House is no less impressive outside. In addition to the grandeur of the entrance with adjacent garaging, the gardens lie predominantly to the southeast comprising a series of 4 separately designed areas. The extensive landscaping and terracing around the conservatory leads through to the first garden area but also to a 'secret' garden designed for tranquillity. The second garden leads into an impressive French Potager, which has gates which lead into a large paddock ideal for equestrian or amenity purposes.
