Built in the early 1960's and having remained in the same ownership since, Ings House offers a unique opportunity to further enhance a substantial 5 bedroom house with extensive private gardens of some 2.5 acres and additional paddock/grassland of 12.5 acres. Magnificent gardens, extensive privacy and attractive uninterrupted views require an early viewing to take advantage of an opportunity that rarely comes to the market on the fringes of Linton and Wetherby.
Ings House stands away from the Linton Road and is accessed via a private drive which sweeps up to the front. Extensive gardens at the front provide complete privacy from the neighbouring properties. The formal gardens follow the northern edge of Linton Ings and follow the line of a long disused railway line. Consisting of a predominately lawned area with extensive planting of mature trees to the boundaries, a banked spinney leads down to an extensive area of fenced grassland/ paddock, which is bordered by Wetherby Golf Club and the River Wharfe.
Undoubtedly the site and location of this property provides a unique opportunity to create a prestigious family home offering privacy that will be difficult to match. On the instructions of the owner, extensive survey work and investigation is currently being undertaken by a local architect to provide a redevelopment scheme that befits the potential of the site.

"During the period of selling my own property, and seeking a new home, I had the pleasure of dealing with the team at Maxwell Hodgson on numerous occasions (as a prospective buyer). I found them attentive, super efficient and most pleasant to deal with and I would recommend them unreservedly."
