Ilkley family home back on market after total refurb


A highly desirable four floor central Ilkley property is back on the market and attracting huge interest after exciting renovations.The stone Victorian property in Ashburn Place, Ilkley was on the market for 18 months without raising much interest. But following a complete refurbishment attracted four viewings and two offers in the first three days on the market alone.

“It demonstrates that in the current market going the extra mile makes all the difference,” said agent Lester Hurst of Hunters the Estate Agents.

The house, in a quiet town centre cul de sac, was on the market originally for &359,000. When the vendors realised they were getting no interest in the property they asked Lester’s wife interior designer Natalie Murray-Hurst ( for advice.

The four bedroom property has undergone a complete renovation throughout with new bathrooms and carpets, while improving many original features including the tasteful black and white tiled traditional hallway.

Back on the market now at &375,000 the house has now had the cellar converted into a potential cinema or play room, a new en suite marbled bathroom has been fitted and the shaker style kitchen had new worksurfaces fitted.

The property is just a short walk from Ilkley’s famed Betty’s Tea Rooms and has excellent views over the moors. “This property is key ready and has been totally transformed,” said Lester. “Before there was no interest, now with a little spending on renovation it looks likely to be snapped up very quickly. It just demonstrates that in a difficult market thinking outside the box a bit can make all the difference.  Clck here for more details
