Arguably the most admired period properties in Harrogate, prominently situated overlooking The Stray and within close walking distance of the town’s cosmopolitan range of amenities.

This is a unique opportunity to acquire a residence of the highest quality along with a valuable investment return and the potential for both commercial and family occupation.

Beech Lodge, Beech Villa and Sloane Cottage were constructed in the 1850’s as a model development by the Duchy of Lancaster and for over 150 years have been an intrinsic part of the Low Harrogate street scene during which time the properties have been occupied as private residences, hotels and prestige landmark office headquarters. It is noted that in 1913 em Forster, the author of Howard’s End, A Passage to India etc, was a resident at Beech Villa.

More recently the properties have been brought into sole ownership and tastefully upgraded to a high standard and there is now the opportunity for the discerning purchaser to acquire the entire parcel with a wide variety of potential uses. The distinctive Victorian villas provide an exceptional range of lifestyle permutations with the additional benefit of dependant relative, guest or staff accommodation within neighbouring Sloane Cottage. In all, over 13, 548 sqft of living space is on offer along with fully enclosed grounds comprising enclosed lawns, courtyards, parking and garaging immediately opposite Montpellier Hill and the ever popular Betty’s Tea Rooms.

Beech Lodge:Has been carefully remodelled internally to create a spacious yet manageable townhouse retaining period features throughout along with fixtures of the highest quality. Ground floor reception rooms with front aspects across The Esplanade towards Low Harrogate Stray are complemented by a flexible range of lower ground floor rooms, whilst an outstanding master bedroom suite with dressing room, bathroom and cloakrooms occupies the entire first floor. Finally a suite of three further family bedrooms, two bathrooms and a cloakroom lie on the second floor.

Beech Villa:Is positioned on the corner of The Esplanade and Victoria Road with elevated front Stray views, four ground floor reception rooms, a 43ft wide first floor drawing room and two double bedrooms. Finally three further family bedrooms, dressing room/bathroom and shower room on the second floor. There is also a useful range of lower ground floor storage and utility rooms.

Sloane Cottage:With its pretty Tudor style elevations lies to the rear of Beech Villa with excellent ancillary accommodation for visiting guests, residents or alternatively staff, and a proven track record of valuable rental income. This unique bijoux property provides split level accommodation arranged over three floors with sitting room, kitchen, three bedrooms, garage and further storerooms.

OutsideWith vehicular access from St Mary’s Walk via remote controlled electronically operated gates, the fully enclosed side and rear grounds are laid out with a clever combination of lawn, ornamental borders, extensive car parking and an outstanding provision of secure and dry garaging.

The Esplanade is a unique Low Harrogate setting overlooking The Stray only a short distance from the bustling Montpellier Quarter with its specialist antiques and Harrogate’s famous range of exclusive shops, award winning restaurants and hotels. Harrogate’s importance as a conference and tourist destination is firmly established and will be further augmented by La Grand Depart in July 2014 – on the very doorstep of these properties!

For the busy commuter there is easy access to the major commercial centres of Leeds, Bradford and York and by road and the A1(M) further afield to major motorway networks. The continually expanding Leeds/Bradford airport lies some 13 miles to the south-west whilst local rail services connect with both Leeds and York and then via mainline routes to London and Edinburgh.
