Full description

Elm House is a beautiful family home in the village of Askrigg in the heart of Upper Wensleydale.

Askrigg is a picturesque village with it's ancient village cross, notable church and cobbled central "green". It has a primary school, village store, cafe, deli, gift shop and 3 good pubs as well as a number of B&B's and an excellent community life.

The property itself is spacious with well apportioned accommodation. Although it is attached to the neighbouring property at the front, it is unusually only joined for the first couple of metres, after which the two houses split off, making Elm House to all intents and purposes, a detached property.

Downstairs, the inner porch leads to an attractive entrance hall with original floor tiles. There are two generous reception rooms at the front with a third, recently built, superb multi functional extension at the back, currently used as a family living room. The kitchen is well fitted and benefits from a large, traditional pantry and separate utility room.

Upstairs, off the attractive landing are three double bedrooms and a single as well as a modern bathroom.

The house has been sympathetically modernised and renovated by the present owners over the past 8 years. They have retained the original charm of the house, yet developed an attractive, quality home for present day living. The house benefits from oil central heating, with a new tank & boiler in 2009, and has double glazed windows in all but two rooms.

Elm House is a delightful home in a sought after village, perfect for family or retirement living. Internal viewing is recommended to appreciate the quality and size of the accommodation.
