A wonderful opportunity to acquire this Grade II listed Georgian town house of beautiful proportions boasting stylish and expansive accommodation.
This beautiful home is perfectly placed to delight in all that the highly sought-after and thriving village of Boston Spa has to offer.

This elegant home dates back to the late 18c and is traditionally constructed with attractive elevations of mellow local stone with Georgian sash windows under a blue slate roof.

The current owners have taken exacting care to restore the period architecture and retain original features, while simultaneously creating a family home suitable for modern life.

The internal accommodation measures approx. 2,000 sq ft and is arranged over three floors. The staircase rises from a ground floor entrance hall opening into the impressive first-floor reception hall which gives an immediate indication of the quality and scale of accommodation on offer.

The light and spacious dining kitchen offers an extensive range of fitted base and wall cabinets, fitted window seat, range style cooker and integrated appliances. Still in situ and giving a lovely focal point is the original cast iron Yorkshire range.

A useful laundry/utility room with wc and sink completes the first-floor accommodation.

The staircase rises to a second-floor landing which leads to a lovely principal bedroom, boasting a range of bespoke fitted furniture and en-suite shower room.
There is a generous guest bedroom and a further double bedroom both beautifully proportioned and enjoying fine period detailing. The bedrooms are served by a spacious family bathroom fitted with high quality white sanitary and separate shower cubicle.

A decorative spiral staircase gives access to the third-floor accommodation, which is currently configured as a fourth double bedroom/study, with access to eaves storage space.

The interior of this property has been beautifully styled and decorated throughout to offer a sophisticated and substantial period home.

Early inspection of this fabulous property is highly recommended.

Please note: The adjoining property benefits from a vehicular right of way to give access to their garage. There are no rights to park on the paved driveway.

The Lodge is approached from the rear via a brick set courtyard providing ample parking for several vehicles. The courtyard garden offers a lovely area to enjoy summer evening drinks and al fresco dining. A covered walkway gives access to a potting shed and bin store.

The Lodge is perfectly situated within the heart of Boston Spa, a picturesque and highly sought- after spa village, set on the banks of the River Wharfe.

The village is renowned for its bustling village atmosphere and architectural integrity and has become a desirable residential ‘hot spot’ over recent years due to its vibrant high street lined with high quality independent shops, cafes, restaurants and hotels.

For those who like to explore the outdoors there are stunning riverside pathways and woodland trails to delight in the beauty of the River Wharfe and its surrounding countryside.

The village enjoys a varied and vibrant community and hosts several annual festivities and celebrations throughout the year including a gala, a beer festival and an arts festival. Popular weekly jazz concerts are held in the village hall.

Within close proximity is an excellent selection of highly regarded state and independent schools for children of all ages.

In 2019, the village appeared in the Sunday Times Best Places to Live guide for the first time, with writers praising its 'honey-hued' properties and fresh, family-friendly atmosphere. "The village has been attracting younger buyers and has a reinvigorated high street with new independent shops, bars and restaurants".

The bustling market town of Wetherby is within close proximity and offers an excellent range of shopping, amenities and recreational activities.
The spa town of Harrogate, historic city of York and cosmopolitan city of Leeds are all within daily commuting distance.

There are mainline railway stations at Harrogate, Leeds and York with direct rail services to London Kings Cross and Edinburgh. Regular domestic and international flights are available from Leeds Bradford Airport.
Boston Spa is especially popular with commuters due to its ease of accessibility to region’s commercial centres. Access to the A1 (M) is approximately 1 mile west of the village.
