Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Draughton is a popular village with many character homes on the edge of the National Park. Situated between Ilkley and Skipton, the location is ideal for daily commuting to both Leeds and Bradford as well as business centres in East Lancashire. Skipton offers a wide range of shops, a weekly market, varied recreational amenities and a number of very highly regarded schools. 

Situated on the outskirts of the village, Ghyll Brow Cottage was originally a three bedroomed cottage with a barn alongside, which has been in the same family ownership for over 50 years. In the 1990's, the barn was converted to form a charming one bedroomed annexe which has been occupied by one of the present vendors, though the larger cottage portion has been unoccupied for some time and now requires a degree of modernisation and improvement. All in all, this is a quite unique property in a lovely setting with great rural views all around, offering its new owners a great opportunity to acquire a home with flexibility and the possibility of accommodating a dependant relative in the annexe which offers charming 'upside-down' accommodation.
