Full description

Tenure: Freehold

The former village station house, enjoying a semi rural location next to the closed railway line with lovely views across countryside, set in surprisingly large gardens extending to 0.254 acres (0.103 ha) with large double garage and ample parking.

The Station House, as its name would suggest, is situated next to the now disused railway line which is now a lovely area for walking, directly adjoining fields and with a pleasant outlook from the rear. The property is set in surprisingly large and secluded gardens which extend to 0.254 acres (0.103 ha), with wild flower areas, level lawn, an array of mature trees and shrubs.

Although purchasers may wish to update the accommodation, this is a spacious detached property which offers the opportunity to create a lovely family home in a leafy setting. There are three double bedrooms, all of which have two windows so that the accommodation has a light and spacious feel. On the ground floor there is a large kitchen with pantry and dining area as well as two built on conservatories. The property was re-roofed in 2007/2008 and the work carries a 25 year guarantee. There are upvc double glazed windows throughout and it is heated by a gas fired radiator system.

Earby is located 8 miles to the west of Skipton. Within the village there is a good range of shops, public houses, church and a primary school. Ideally situated for commuters, there is good access to the central M6 motorway network via the M65 at Colne.

On entering Earby from the direction of Skipton turn right immediately past Earby Autos and Station House is the first property on the left hand side, identified by our for sale board.
