See Inside this Stunning Family Home Near The Stray in Harrogate
Beech Lodge offers contemporary living over two floors and a generous south-facing garden
This family home is situated just a short distance from the 200-acre Stray parkland and the town centre of Harrogate: a beautiful spa town which has been crowned the happiest place to live in England on several occasions. The property benefits from easy access to the business centres of Leeds, Bradford and York and the railway station connects with mainline stations into Leeds, York and London.
Stepping inside the property an impressive reception hall awaits, with a central feature staircase leading to the first-floor accommodation and access to a guest WC. To the front elevation is the formal living room overlooking the gardens through a corner turret bay window with solid wood flooring.
Double doors lead through to the open-plan dining kitchen which forms the hub of the house and is a sociable living space. In addition, there is ample space for formal dining, a lounging area in front of twin patio doors opening out to the landscaped gardens, integrated ceiling speakers and a large sky lantern window with two additional Velux windows.
Leading off the kitchen is a separate utility/boot room which provides internal access to the garage with a side entrance door. A second L-shaped reception room is perfect for family entertainment having the provision for a cinema screen and projector. Completing the ground floor accommodation is a flexible room that is currently used as a gym, benefitting from its own ensuite shower room, but alternatively it could be used as a guest bedroom if preferred.
To the first floor the central landing area has two skylight windows and leads you to the master bedroom which is a great size, boasting a dedicated walk-in dressing room and contemporary ensuite shower room. Three further well-proportioned double bedrooms all benefit from their own contemporary ensuite shower rooms.
Externally Beech Lodge is approached via secure electric gates leading to a block paved driveway providing off street parking in front of a double integral garage. Steps to the side of the garage lead down to a practical basement storage area that could be used as an office or games room with further access to the boiler room.
The landscaped gardens enjoy a high degree of privacy, having high-hedged boundaries, and are low maintenance with an artificial lawn to the front. An extensive south-west facing patio area and shaped lawns leading off the dining kitchen are ideal for outdoor entertaining.
