The sale of Orchard House offers a unique and rare opportunity to acquire a fascinating development project. A former barn presently configured as two/three bedroom living accommodation, with consent (subject to conditions), for significant extension and replanning of the internal layout to create a highly desirable home set in a wonderful location, off a long private driveway, within a former Victorian walled garden. The proposed development has the potential to appeal across a broad market sector with the gardens and mature orchard providing a lovely, very private amenity, whilst an existing greenhouse (measuring some 28'9'' by 10'9'' i.e. c. 309 ft.sq.), and an adjacent potting shed offer further scope for conversion, subject to the necessary consents.

In a delightful setting, Orchard House is approached off Cragg Drive, itself one of the town's most exclusive and sought after residential areas and from where there are some lovely views across Wharfedale. The centre of Ben Rhydding village is around half a mile or so from the site and offers a surprisingly broad range of everyday amenities including local shops, a popular pub/restaurant and primary school. A 'metro' railway station offers regular services throughout the day into the nearby cities of Leeds and Bradford, with onward connections from the former to London Kings Cross. Leeds Bradford International Airport is just some 9 miles distant.

The former Victorian spa town of Ilkley provides a highly desirable living environment - the community standing amidst some of Yorkshire's most stunning countryside, with beautiful riverside walks contrasting with the rugged moors. The town is well known for its first class shopping, busy social round, highly regarded schooling system and popular sports clubs to suit a variety of tastes.

From our office in the centre of Ilkley proceed towards Ben Rhydding on Bolling Road and on passing the church and reaching the small parade of shops on either side, turn right (as the road bears downhill to the left), onto Wheatley Lane and then turn immediately left through the large stone gateposts onto Ben Rhydding Drive. Proceed up the road for approximately 500 yards and Cragg Drive will be seen to the right. Continue up Cragg Drive the driveway entrance to Orchard House will be seen to the right hand side. A signboard is erected.
