Beech House is a handsome and very spacious family home, which sits centrally in its own private and beautiful grounds at the end of a meandering driveway leading off Scotland Lane, in the heart of Horsforth. The oldest part of the house dates from c1750, receiving a number of significant additions in c1800, the final stage of the property’s evolution spanning twenty years under the guidance of the present owners, concluding in 2009. The house and associated outbuildings have been sympathetically combined, upgraded and thoughtfully remodelled creating a home perfectly suited to modern family lifestyles. It now boasts a unique combination of period charm alongside modern technology and interior design.
he open plan kitchen dining area is the hub of the house incorporating a spacious orangery, which extends the dining/living area to the guest wing and enhances natural light levels. In addition to this the main house has two generous reception rooms overlooking the gardens, currently used as a drawing room with bar area and a formal dining room.
The hallway has a beautiful Georgian staircase and ornate plasterwork mentioned in the listing text. There is a useful utility/ cloakroom in this part of the property as well as the arched wine cellar.
On the first floor is the spacious principal suite with dressing room and fabulous bathroom, a guest room with en suite and dressing area, and two further bedrooms: one with an ensuite shower room. There is also a luxurious house bathroom and a useful office room. The second floor has two cosy bedrooms and an attic room perfect for young children.
To the other side of the orangery, to the north of the main house is an adjoining annexe with additional living space to support the main house. There is a sizeable sitting area with bespoke sweeping staircase leading up to a cinema room, a further sitting room, games room, kitchen/ dining room and two bedrooms beneath (one en suite) as well as a separate bathroom. The cinema room has built in Lutron controlled black out blinds and a wall mounted projector supported by an Artcoustic surround system giving a real cinematic experience
This part of the house also has access to the double garage, a storage room, w.c. and comms room.
The property centres around a beautiful cobbled courtyard. Across from the house is a home office finished in fine walnut units with an integral contemporary fireplace with a gym below -perfect for those working from home.There is also a large garage and workshop created from a former stone built piggery. This underfloor heated and dehumidified gem is the ultimate man cave with fitted bar and sound system, the ideal place to house those special vehicles. For the gardener there is a potting shed and large English Heritage recognised greenhouse.
The outside of this property is beautifully maintained, with an electric gated entry and meandering driveway leading to the front and to the rear. Possibly the highlight of the exterior space here is the magical walled garden to the rear which has been recently restored and thoughtfully planted creating the perfect venue for those wanting to entertain in style(complete with lighting, wifi, music and a ‘firehouse’ for all year round entertaining!). The rest of the garden is mostly laid to lawn with shrubs and planting as well as a mature woodland and a ha ha which drops down to the lake and undulates beyond.
The grounds are secured by a state of the art camera system for added peace of mind.
