Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Airton is a picturesque Malhamdale village, with the River Aire meandering through and with stunning scenery all around, typifying this area of the Yorkshire Dales National Park. Nearby Kirkby Malham (2 miles) has a well-respected primary school, public house and the historic St Michael The Archangel Church, with Gargrave (4 miles) having a range of local shops and social/sporting amenities. A choice of shops and secondary schools are on offer at both Skipton (9 miles) and Settle (6 miles) and Airton falls within the education catchment area for both towns. 

Whilst still retaining many features from the original building including chamfered windows, ceiling beams and exposed stonework, Scosthrop School House has been the subject of extensive expenditure, mainly in 2014/2015, including a new roof, new windows, new oil central heating system (pipes, radiators and boiler), modern electric panel heaters upstairs, re-pointing and silicone coating. The accommodation is predominantly on the ground floor, is pristinely decorated and surprisingly light throughout with many rooms having more than one window, and is described in brief below using approximate room sizes:-
