Full description

Tenure: Freehold

A substantial stone-built three bedroom barn conversion with gardens, parking and garage all in a secluded semi-rural location on the fringe of this ever popular Craven village.

Knowles Stables is tucked away on the rural fringe of Gargrave and as can be seen from the accompanying photographs has a delightful open aspect over the village's green and playing field to the River Aire and hills beyond. This two-storey, semi-detached residence is now in need of a little cosmetic TLC but has much charm. The ground floor is a large living area and fitted kitchen with Aga as well as utility area and cloakroom. Whilst to the upper storey are three good sized bedrooms and the house bathroom. There is an easily managed garden and parking facilities plus a Camden garage close by. All mains services are installed including gas-fired central heating as well as UPVC double-glazing and a security system.

As mentioned Knowles Stables lies in a delightful corner of Gargrave and is close to the village's facilities and there are some delightful walks close by. Gargrave includes shops catering for most everyday needs including a supermarket, church, choice of pubs, restaurants, sports clubs and a primary school. The village's railway station has services operating between Leeds and Carlisle. The village is set amidst scenic countryside bordering the Yorkshire Dales National Park. The market town of Skipton is within some 5 miles and offers a comprehensive range of shops and other amenities. Many West Yorkshire and East Lancashire business centres are within reasonable commuting distance.

On entering Gargrave from Skipton take the left-hand turning onto East Street to the crossroads where the road opens on to the village green. Take the unadopted lane to the left where the property will be seen after approximately 50 yards on the left-hand side identified by our For Sale board.
