Nestled in the Yorkshire Dales and boasting 12 acres of mature and lush gardens including a private golf course, woodland and river is Beck House, an impressive four bedroom detached family home. Having undergone a rolling programme of improvements and extensions by subsequent occupiers the property now boasts just short of 6000 sq. ft. of accommodation and as a consequence is well presented both internally and externally having superb gardens providing the appropriate setting for such a lovely family home. Approached via the private tarmacadam driveway which is approximately half a mile in length this property boasts a wonderfully private location yet has all the convenient amenities within easy vehicular access.
Beck House is approximately 1 mile from the village of Bishop Thornton and the fashionable spa town of Harrogate is 8 miles away providing a wide array of Shopping, Restaurants, Bars, the theatre and a good range of leisure activities.
The famous Ripley estate village is also a few miles away and provides all of the everyday facilities including a popular delicatessen, butchers, village store, the Boars Head Hotel and village cricket club.
Leeds' vibrant commercial centre is approximately 25 miles away and there are regular services to Leeds and York from Harrogate railway station. Leeds Bradford Airport is about 20 miles and the A1 motorway is a short drive of 15 miles.
Internally the property has ample space and briefly comprises to the ground floor Snooker/ games room with exposed beams and superb elevated views over the grounds, Garden room with walk in safe, characterful Library, well-proportioned 400 sq. ft. office space, two ground floor bathrooms with bath and shower facilities, generous lounge with a further separate reception room, dining room enjoying views to the gardens, dining Kitchen, Utility room and access into the triple garage. To the first floor there are four good sized bedrooms three of which have bathroom facilities, a further house bathroom and the master bedroom having the added advantage of panoramic views and walk in dressing area.
Beck House has no end of leisure pursuits with a professionally designed, small but testing golf course (see card of course for further details), a croquet lawn beside the house and a particularly fine Snooker room.

The golf course has been approved by the police as a suitable site for zeroing rifles.
and the location is extremely convenient for game shooting with numerous shoots not far away. In particular, high quality driven pheasant and partridge shooting is available at the large and efficient Ripley shoot only 10 minutes away. Similarly various grouse moors are within easy reach of Beck House.

A planning consent has been obtained for a particularly handsome indoor swimming pool as an extension to the West wing, and there are various outbuildings and workshops ideal for conversion into Holiday lets or further accommodation in addition to the main house.
Beck House is a special home set in arguably one of the most pleasant landscapes the Yorkshire dales has to offer, we strongly advise inspection of this sumptuous home.
