Spring Grove, Harrogate
5 bedroom semi-detached house for sale
Located in a little-known gem of a residential area in between The Royal Hall and the trendy Kings Quarter, this beautifully appointed, very spacious, semi-detached, four-storey, Edwardian property is packed with period detail and character. However, extensively renovated and sympathetically restored to a very high standard, it also features all the mod cons for contemporary living – including a big kitchen-diner and dedicated office spaces, so it’s perfect for those with a growing family and for anyone working from home.
There are five big double bedrooms, three bathrooms, extensive living spaces, wood-burning stoves, parking for three cars, a purpose-built basement office suite, small enclosed gardens and a peaceful secret woodland haven, full of wildlife.
Situated in a very friendly, quiet cul-de-sac with a great mix of families and couples, its location and space are remarkable. As well as being moments away from a multitude of great cafes, bars, shops and restaurants, it’s also just a few minutes’ walk to Valley Gardens, The Stray, schools, bus routes and the train station.

Please note the kitchen is on the ground floor when you enter the house through the main entrance at the top of the shared driveway, but due to the natural contours of the site, the kitchen is elevated at the back of the house and the parking and garden are at basement level. The garden area features space for the recycling and household waste bins, a bike store and there is also an external tap for a garden hose.

Double bedroom with window to the side currently being used as a home office.
w: 4.4m x l: 4.3m
Very large double bedroom with full height ceiling and two large, double glazed sash windows overlooking the garden, parking area and woodland at the back.
To the front is a small courtyard, gravelled garden with log shed, low wall and space for table and chairs. A block-paved driveway, shared with the owner-occupied flats in no.12, leads between the two houses from the cul de sac to separate parking at the back of both properties. To the rear of no. 10 is a small, private, enclosed garden with astroturf, decked seating/BBQ area and door to the basement office. Wooden staircase with feature handrails leads up to the kitchen door.
Please note that while the current garden is of adequate size for relaxing, morning coffee, lunch and evening drinks, there is plenty of scope for families to expand and modify the garden by extending out into the car parking area. While the parking area is currently open plan in line with the owner’s requirements, it would be possible to return this area into a large garden leading down into the woodland or to extend the garden, leaving just one or two car parking spaces at the rear of the property.
The secret woodland at the back of this property is a private, peaceful area that is shared only by around 10 properties on the same side of the cul de sac and can only be accessed through their gardens. Although the deeds of all the houses mark out specifically owned segments, the area has always been left open and is largely untouched as a nature reserve. A small, but perfectly formed eco-system, it is maintenance-free and home to woodpeckers, owls, squirrels and many other species of wildlife, flora and fauna. The current owners have created a short staircase accessed via the parking area and a wooden gate. It leads down onto a small platform – an unexpected and delightful area for a family barbeque, a morning coffee, an afternoon read or just an hour of peace to enjoy the birdsong and watch the wildlife
