Property Description

Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Not to be missed! A very unique & rare to the market character cottage with the surprise of large well-proportioned rooms and direct access onto the towpath of the Leeds/Liverpool canal at the rear from a good sized walled garden. The property is well appointed and during the last five years has been through extensive upgrading, this includes: new boiler & period style radiators, full electrical rewire, re-plastering, new windows to the rear etc. Historically the property is believed to have originally been two buildings, the rear of the property dating back to 1691 and predating the Canal this was then later extended to the front potentially in the Victorian period as the living room has unusually high ceilings for a cottage. Due to its age the cottage is brimming with a wealth of original character features such as fireplaces and beams and benefits from fantastic outside space with a parking area for 1 / 2 cars to the front. A surprisingly large walled private garden to the rear with potential to reinstate power to an existing workshop/office for home working or conversion to a summer house. A gate in the Yorkshire stone garden wall gives direct access onto the Leeds Liverpool canal tow path to enjoy walks in the countryside and moor of the surrounding area. There is also potential for a mooring for a barge (subject to waterways permission). Kildwick with Farnhill is a small highly regarded Aire Valley village community situated close to the River Aire. The village includes an extremely well respected primary school, a park, a Medieval Church, a public house and is blessed with many delightful walking routes. The historic market town of Skipton known as the 'Gateway to the Dales' is only circa four miles away and provides extensive shopping and recreational facilities together with excellent secondary schooling.
