The property, designed in the Queen Anne Revival style by the noted architect Percy Oates Platt and cited by English Heritage for its 'genteel, yet quietly authoritative architectural design' and 'the quality of materials exhibited by the brickwork and stone dressings' was originally part of Harrogate Police Station. Woodside Lodge is a beautifully presented, detached three-bedroom family home that features high ceilings, sash windows, high levels of natural light and airy accommodation, while a modern extension provides sleek, contemporary living.
There are four reception rooms on the ground floor with oak floors throughout, three of which are similarly proportioned, including the sitting room, the formal dining room and the garden room, with its ceiling lantern skylight and sliding glass doors opening onto the garden. Both the sitting and the dining room welcome plenty of natural light through large sash windows and feature fireplaces fitted with modern gas fires. The kitchen and breakfast room has plenty of storage in Clarity Arts designed white units to base and wall level, as well as Siemens integrated appliances, a Quooker Tap and Quartz Work surfaces. The ground floor also has a useful study area with bespoke built in storage for home working.
On the first floor there are three double bedrooms, all of which benefit from fitted storage designed by Clarity Arts. The principal bedroom has an en-suite shower room, while the first floor also has a family bathroom with an over-bath shower. The property also has underfloor heating in the garden room, utility, bathroom and en-suite. There is also a boarded and insulated loft which is good for storage.
The property is conveniently located just a quarter of a mile from the centre of the historic and popular spa town of Harrogate. The town features a wealth of fine Georgian and Victorian architecture, and has excellent shopping, leisure and cultural facilities, plus a number of supermarkets, and a choice of superb schools – both state and independent.
The area is well connected by road, with the A1(M) just eight miles from the property, offering easy access to the north and south, while Harrogate mainline station offers direct services to London Kings Cross in three hours. Golf is available at Harrogate Golf Club,
Oakdale Golf Club and Pannal Golf Club.
Access for vehicles is via the secure gated entrance on North Park Road, which leads to the house and the driveway to the side, offering parking for up to two/three vehicles and there is a garden shed. The property sits on a generous plot of 0.12 acre and is surrounded by a landscaped garden, which includes parterre styled elegant box hedging, paved and gravel pathways and terracing and various shrubs, trees and hedgerow. Off the garden room, there is a stunning terrace, which is perfect for entertaining. There is pedestrian access to the house from Woodside Walk, which provides a peaceful walk in to town.
