Full description

Tenure: Freehold

A stunning four bedroom period family home with an extensive array of outbuildings suitable for a wide variety of uses, subject to consents. Lovely gardens, ample parking and some of the finest views in the area.

East Berwick Farm must provide one of the last opportunities to buy a conveniently located family home with so much potential. Not only is the residential portion upgraded to an excellent standard but also the adjoining farm buildings have all had substantial work undertaken to walls and roofs and now provide an extensive area of outbuildings suitable for numerous different commercial or residential uses, subject to the necessary consents. There are ample parking facilities, gardens and a paddock, in all stretching to approximately 0.6 hectares/ 1.6acres. The property benefits from mains electricity with a private water supply and drainage system, as well as oil fired central heating. The decor within the house is of an excellent standard with a smartly presented kitchen and bathrooms, with many rooms having ample natural light having windows on two elevations. All in all, a lovely family home.

The barns are ripe for conversion to extend the living space or undertake a wide variety of communal uses and the gardens to both front and rear have magnificent open views and are ideal for children's games or summer entertaining. There is an adjoining paddock ideally suited for a pony and further land may be available subject to separate negotiation.

This stunning period home lies in a idyllic rural location with some of the most attractive country views in the area stretching over the Bolton Abbey Estate as well as The Priory. The property is close by Chelker Reservoir and is approached via a lane serving this and two neighbouring houses. Roughly equidistant from the bustling towns of Ilkley and Skipton. Skipton, a vibrant market town, known as 'The Gateway To The Dales' has some of the most highly regarded state schooling in the north of England and there is a wide array of high quality shops, supermarkets and recreational outlets as well as a railway station serving Leeds, Bradford and London. Ilkley, the famous spa town also has an excellent array of amenities with a regular commuter service to both above cities.

From Skipton proceed along the A65 towards Ilkley passing the signpost for Draughton. Chelker Reservoir will be seen on the left hand side and turn left along the reservoir dam wall (signposted West Berwick Farm, Eggs) and at the hen hut turn right following the lane for approximately a third of a mile where the house will be seen immediately in front of you.
