I went, What? and checked.
Streetmap shows it just South of the road between Bingley and Harden. I 
don't drive that regularly, but I've been down it several times, and I 
think I would have noticed a sign to St Ives (though I might be wrong).
The OS Street Atlas of W Yorkshire marks 'St Ives Est[ate]' on a 
crossroad North of that road.  It appears to be on private or unmade 
roads, in the middle of a golf course labelled "Bingley (St Ives) 
Municipal Golf Course".
I feel fairly safe in saying that St Ives is not a village near 
Bradford, but a name that has been applied to a golf course and an 
estate - rather a different thing. (There are a couple of roads with St 
Ives in their name, too).

Incidentally, the two best known St Ives's commemorate two different 
saints, in fact saints of two different sexes.
