4 9 5 2
Dating back to 1879 and occupying a commanding position between Park Avenue and West Avenue, this substantial and magnificent stone built mansion exudes charm and character having been lovingly and meticulously restored by the present owners from its former use as a home for the elderly into an elegant family home. Sitting in beautifully landscaped formal gardens extending to approximately a third of an acre, Woodlands Hall offers the discerning purchaser a rare piece of local history.

The sweeping driveway provides an entrance befitting a property of this grandeur and provides ample parking for many vehicles and access to an integral double garage.

On arrival, the grand portico entrance with original door opens up into the spectacular entrance hall with galleried landing above. The hallway retains many original character features which have been beautifully restored including ornate carved columns, ceiling rose and wooden windows. These exquisite features run throughout the whole property. The hallway features a fireplace with log burning stove, tiled hearth and wooden surround, a modern passenger lift serving both the first and second floors and access to all principal rooms.

A splendid breakfast kitchen with dual aspect windows, magnificent ornate coving and ceiling rose features a range of solid wooden units, a central island, granite work surfaces, matching Welsh dresser and inbuilt unit with cupboard space and plate rack above. There are a range of appliances including an AGA and separate electric oven with gas hob and extractor hood over. There is also ample space for a large kitchen table and chairs. For more formal entertaining, the separate dining room offers plenty of light and space.

The formal drawing room is a beautifully bright space with dual aspect windows overlooking the beautiful gardens and parkland beyond, as well as double doors leading out to the rear terrace. A magnificent marble fireplace houses a further log burning stove and a door leads through into a sitting room which again has a feature fireplace with inset gas fire.

In 1957, a later extension was added to create a billiard room with full-width folding glazed doors truly bringing the outdoors in. This space is now used as a delightful sun room and integral double garage.

An inner hallway with stone flagged floor provides a second entrance into both the kitchen and the sitting room, and also leads to a spacious shower room, laundry room, stairs down to the cellars and the secondary staircase. An external door leads to an enclosed walled side patio area. To complete the ground floor is a generous cloakroom and guest w/c.

The cellars offer versatile and well laid out rooms including a workshop, log store with original external chute, pantry and wine store.
The superb features, including sash windows, cornicing and ceiling roses continue to the first floor via the primary grand half turn staircase with wrought iron and wooden bannister. A half landing with magnificent arched window, further windows to both sides and beautiful ornate carved columns take you to the galleried landing which overlooks the main entrance.

The most impressive master suite has windows to the rear and side aspect, an elegant feature fireplace and double doors opening into a substantial dressing room and en-suite bathroom. The dressing room has ample fitted wardrobes and shoe racks, and the en-suite is fitted with a six piece suite including bath, separate shower cubicle, bidet, two wash hand basins and w/c. Also to this floor are a further three excellent sized bedrooms, two with the benefit of en-suites, and a house bathroom which serves the other bedroom.

To the second floor are a further six bedrooms, two of which share a Jack'n'Jill shower room, and one having its own en-suite bathroom. There are ample eaves storage cupboards to this floor as well as a store room.

The true gem of this home is the ornate spiral staircase which leads up to an exceptional atrium which has two sets of double doors leading out to a truly unique rooftop terrace with 360 degree views over Roundhay and far beyond. This unique feature really does typify this special home.

Outside, as previously mentioned the sweeping driveway with double wrought iron gates and walled boundary with railings above offers ample parking for numerous vehicles. There is a delightful lawned bank covered with spring flowers and a side gate through to an enclosed patio area. To the rear is a fully enclosed south facing garden including a wrap-around stone flagged terrace which has beautiful flower beds and two sets of steps leading down to the formal lawned area, one of which has a cobbled pathway to a rear gate. In addition there are fruit trees including both apple and pear, a stunning magnolia tree, raised flower beds, a variety of mature shrubs, plants, bushes and trees, and a walled and hedged boundary. This stunning garden offers excellent privacy and is a wonderful space for relaxing as well as outdoor entertaining.

Set in the heart of this highly sought after North Leeds residential location, the property is within easy vehicular access of the amenities of Oakwood and the cosmopolitan Street Lane both with a variety of quality dining establishments and shopping facilities and also within easy commuting distance of Leeds City centre and Leeds Bradford International Airport.
