The Old Vicarage, Thorner
This beautiful former vicarage is in one of Leeds most sought-after satellite villages and comes with a two-bedroom coach house plus a games room/office in the garden.
Owner Andrew Wheatley and his family bought the property in 2007.
“We lived in the village and I had always admired this house. It came up for sale at the right time and we bought it,” says Mr Wheatley, who has modernised the property, converted the basement and created the multi-functional garden building with a kitchen.
The Wheatleys are downsizing now their children are older but they plan to stay in Thorner, which sits between Wetherby and Leeds.
“It’s a village with real heart and community spirit. I tried moving away once but I only lasted three months before I moved back. It’s a fantastic place to live,” says Mr Wheatley
The house has a hall, cloakroom, sitting room, dining room, snug, a dining kitchen with Aga, utility room and a basement with study, TV/games room, wine store and storage room.
Upstairs, there is a bedroom with en-suite and walk-in wardrobe plus three double bedrooms and a house bathroom.
The coach house has a sitting room, dining kitchen, two double bedrooms, bathroom and a garage.
The grounds include the party/games room and there is also a large courtyard, parking, attached outhouse and store room.
