We have a lovely spacious family home in a friendly north Leeds suburb. We renovated it when we moved in seven years ago, adapting it for our son who is disabled with complex medical needs. And now it is just perfect for us! The heart of the house is at the back, with a large open plan kitchen diner and living room (perfect for kitchen discos!), with big sliding doors giving level access to our garden. There’s a patio with comfy seating & a hot tub, plenty of space for kicking a ball. Plus an in ground trampoline and adapted swing. 5 bedrooms (one double en-suite downstairs, and a through floor lift into an upstairs accessible bedroom suite with H frame hoist & wet room) gives us all the space we need. There is parking on our driveway, 1 small step up to the front door (but level access to the side of the property into the side door if needed).
