This attractive late Victorian villa is situated on a tree-lined avenue within the heart of the sought after residential suburb of Roundhay. The double-fronted property offers an appealing combination of modern 21st Century comforts which have been skilfully blended with characterful period features, sympathetically retaining the elegance of the original villa to create a beautiful family home. Spacious rooms have high ceilings and replacement double glazed windows, the majority of which are sliding sashes.An attractive central hallway has decorative tiled flooring and panelled internal doors leading to the ground floor rooms. The drawing room enjoys a lovely light and bright double aspect afforded by large windows to both the front and side elevations and features a marble fireplace with open fire.

Also to the front elevation is a second reception room which is currently used as a family room/play room and also has an attractive marble fireplace. To the rear is a sociable dining room which opens across the rear of the house onto a Shaker-style fitted breakfast kitchen which has a central island with breakfast bar and Aga which also offers conventional oven cooking facilities. There is also a useful ground floor WC. The first floor landing has a window to the rear elevation providing natural daylight, and built-in storage. A master suite has been cleverly designed to create a large double bedroom with walk-in dressing/wardrobe and a stylish en-suite shower room. There are also two further double bedrooms and a lovely modern house bathroom. On the second floor are two charming attic style bedrooms, one of which has an en-suite and is perfect for a teenager or as a guest room, and there is another house bathroom which is fitted with a period style suite including a free standing bath with separate shower.

The property is approached via electric gates with a gravelled driveway affording ample off road parking, surrounded by lawned gardens with mature hedge screening. There is also a paved seating area to the rear and large timber storage shed.
