Tenure: Freehold

Eminently suitable for a B&B concern, this is a spacious and smartly presented 4/5 bedroom property with garaging, workshop and garden - a lot of property for the money at this sensible asking price.

With origins believed to date back to the mid 1750's, The Old Post Office is a charming home which also offers significant potential for using as a Bedroom & Breakfast concern - which indeed the owners carried out successfully in previous years. As well as being visible from the A56, it is also an attractive stay-over proposition for walkers on the nearby Pennine Way.

The Old Post Office benefits from many period features including wide internal doorways and an unusual recessed fireplace which the owners uncovered in the sitting room. The property is, however, sympathetically modernised so that there is upvc double glazing to the windows, the front door having leaded and stained panels, as well a gas-fired central heating system. On the ground floor there is a spacious fitted farmhouse style kitchen, two lovely reception rooms, a generous utility room which could be made into a third reception room if required along with a w.c and a larder. On the first floor there are four bedrooms, two with en-suite shower facilities, as well as a fifth bedroom/study and a house bathroom. Throughout the property there is ample storage space. To the rear is a single garage with power installed, over which is the Railway Room! - excellent for any hobby enthusiasts or as a workshop.

Thornton-in-Craven lies approximately 6 miles to the west of Skipton where there is a highly regarded secondary school system as well as supermarket, department store, high quality shops and numerous recreational/sporting amenities. The village of Thornton has a thriving community with many local events run from its village hall, as well as having a well-respected primary school.

Being close to the Yorkshire/Lancashire border, with the commercial centres of both West Yorkshire ideally and East Lancashire within comfortable daily commuting distance.

From Skipton, proceed on the A59 in the direction of Clitheroe. Just past The Bull at Broughton, bear left at the roundabout onto the A56 and proceed into Thornton-in-Craven. The Old Post Office will be found in the centre of the village on the right hand side, identified by our 'For Sale' board.
