Built in 1846, this Grade II Stone built property is one of a kind. Situated in the popular village of East Ardsley the property has an array of amenities close by. For the commuter it is just a 15 minute drive into the centre of Leeds, a 2 minute drive to the M1 and a 5 minute drive to the M62, and for the family there are numerous schools located nearby. With Leeds train station being 15 minutes away, Leeds Bradford airport just over 20 miles away and the M62/A1/M1 all being a short drive away the property has unrivalled access to rail/road/air links to London, Scotland and the rest of Europe. Major hospitals in Leeds, Wakefield and Dewsbury are all within a 10 mile radius of the property.

The Old Vicarage has period features throughout the property with high ceilings, feature staircase, extensive mature grounds and could potentially span across 4 floors. Entering the ground floor from the courtyard in one of 3 entrances you will find; entrance hallway/porch, a recently fitted kitchen, with connecting pantry and utility room, 3 large reception rooms and a fully fitted shower room. The first floor is accessed by the feature staircase which leads to; an open landing with great period windows, 4 double bedrooms, the current master  and one other with en-suites and 1 main family bathroom. The second floor has 2 large attic rooms and 1 good sized connecting room. The second floor attic rooms are a great space and with some ingenuity could be turned into a fantastic feature of this home. The cellar is currently unused, however it consists of 3 more good sized rooms. Outside, the well maintained garden surrounds the property. There is also a large courtyard and drive providing ample off street parking with the added benefit of a double garage and a single garage. 

Viewing is strongly advised with this property to gain a full understanding of its size and potential. Work has been carried out by the current owners with the main roof being fully rebuilt to a very high standard just 11 years ago. The current owners also had an sizeable extension added- just 6 years ago, including the kitchen, one double bedroom, the family bathroom, an en suite, a new entrance lobby and a new main door from the drive.
