Tenure: Freehold

A charming rural hamlet, Winterburn lies between Wharfedale and Malhamdale and is a typical Dales farming community surrounded by splendid scenery with wonderful walks and an attractive reservoir with impressive stepped overflow. With Hetton and Airton each just a couple of miles away, Winterburn is around 4 miles from Gargrave and 7 miles from Skipton, where there is a wide range of recreational and educational facilities and a railway station with services to Bradford, Leeds and London Kings Cross. This is a distinctly rural yet highly accessibly location offering daily commuting to West Yorkshire and East Lancashire business centres.  

Originally the Reservoir House, Waterside Lodge was constructed in 1895 to exacting Victorian standards, and in more recent years the house has been significantly renovated, modernised and extended, with no expense spared. The renovation work has enhanced the inherent character of the property, including the re-fitting of the kitchen with a fabulous Smallbone of Devizes kitchen complete with Miele appliances. A former stone outbuilding is now a smart detached self-contained annexe, ideal for visiting relatives or for letting out, and the house has been extended on the ground floor to provide a Cloakroom, Utility and entrance area - Planning Permission has been granted to further extend this area, and also to create an impressive Double Bedroom on the first floor which would have a magnificent panoramic outlook, with an en suite Bathroom and Study Area.
