The internal accommodation is completed at first floor level with a fantastic master bedroom with en suite bathroom, four further bedrooms and a house bathroom.

Middleton has long been regarded as one of the town's premier residential districts, occupying a peaceful setting on the southern facing bank of the River Wharfe less than a mile from the town centre. Its heritage stems back from the release of building land by the Myddleton family around the end of the 19th century whereupon high quality and individual houses were built. Middleton plays host to the town's rugby and cricket clubs along with the swimming pool and lido. Ilkley is within a pleasant walk and offers excellent amenities including high class shopping and restaurants, boutique cinema, supermarkets and some of the best schools in the country.
