Full description

Ideally positioned in the south of the Yorkshire Dales National Park, only a mile from the village of Gargrave and approximately five miles from the historic market town of Skipton, this superior two bedroom ground floor apartment forms part of this impressive conversion of this magnificent Grade II* Listed Country House.

The historic Eshton Hall was tastefully restored and converted in 2005 by Messrs Burley Developments to create a fabulous selection of luxurious homes within this highly desirable rural setting.

Number 10 enjoys an excellent position within the development, with the main living area having a large picture window to the front elevation commanding fine long distance views over the estate towards Sharphaw Fell.

Eshton Hall is accessed via a secure gated entrance and is surrounded by fully maintained, landscaped communal gardens with excellent private parking facilities.

Certainly representing an exciting alternative to a bungalow, or perhaps of interest to second home owners looking for a low maintenance 'lock-up and leave country retreat' within the Dales, the beautifully appointed and easily to manage accommodation is situated entirely on the ground floor and offers a high level of prestige, comfort and privacy within an extremely safe and secure residential environment.

Although the estate dates back over 800 years, the existing house was successfully remodelled for the Wilson family in 1825, using an Elizabethan Revival style designed by architect George Webster of Kendal. Sir Matthew Wilson was a local magistrate and MP and his statue now stands in a prominent location on Skipton High Street. His half sister, Francis Mary Richardson-Currer, was famed for having one of the finest collections of books in the country and it is suggested that her library may have been an inspiration for the Bronte sisters, with Charlotte Bronte writing Jane Eyre under the pseudonym of 'Currer Bell'.

The estate is surrounded by beautiful open countryside and attracts a variety of birds and other wildlife, including deer. It is also home to the annual Gargrave Show.

Lavishly appointed to an exceptional standard throughout incorporating high quality fixtures and fittings, the apartment also includes a variety of attractive character features such as large windows, feature fireplaces and high ceilings with decorative coving.

Number 10 has not changed hands since it was originally converted in 2005 and is respectfully offered at a substantially reduced price, with an early sale being desired. The property is also one of the smaller units within the development, with a lower annual service charge to reflect this.



On the route of the famous Pennine Way, the nearby village of Gargrave offers a variety of shops and other local amenities together with a good selection of places to eat and drink. There is a railway station and the village is intersected by both the scenic River Aire and also the Leeds/Liverpool canal. The area is surrounded by beautiful open countryside, offering a great choice of walking routes and other outdoor pursuits.

Including LPG central heating, a security alarm and video intercom system, the well equipped ground floor accommodation comprises in further detail:
