2 Bedroom Semi Detached House, Orchard Croft, Horbury, Wakefield, WF4 5DD

Property Description

SUMMARY I bought Orchard Croft as my first home. I was looking for a unique character property with a cosy cottage feel to it and I fell in love with it straight away. I relocated to Harrogate a few years ago and have been renting it out ever since to couples who have all loved living there too. I would describe number 11 as a peaceful Oasis in the middle of Horbury. The neighbours are all very pleasant and look out for each other whilst keeping themselves to themselves. You get no passing traffic and the secluded walled garden is a delight all year round with morning and afternoon sunshine. The garden room conservatory is a huge asset to the property in summer and winter. For me it provided a light airy workspace in summer and a warm dining space in winter, which is especially beautiful in the snow. It is also a great additional guest space should you wish to put a day bed in there. The garages not only provide parking for two vehicles but can also be used for storage or as a workshop space. Horbury itself is a lovely place to live and number 11 is in such a convenient spot especially as you can walk to all local amenities including to the park, shops or to one of the lovely, cafes, restaurants and many pubs.


I am currently looking at buying a new property in Harrogate which is the reason for the sale. If this was not the case I would certainly be keeping it as it is also such a great rental property. My wish is to find a new owner(s) for number 11 who will love living there as much as I have done over the years. It really is a special home.
