Now significantly reduced and representing very good value. A spacious period property currently providing a spacious home with village shop. Set in the most spectacular position and location, with stunning views of Upper Wharfedale. Excellent scope to return this property back to a family home (subject to planning) or improve and expand the business.

A rare opportunity to acquire a business or indeed property of this size, at this price, in this part of The Yorkshire Dales National Park National Park.

There is in our opinion, great potential to open a Tea Room/ Cafe given that there are none in the village.

Now requiring full modernization and improvements, and perhaps opening up the dining room / kitchen to make one larger open-plan, living-dining-kitchen space. There is also an 'un-tapped' attic room that would create further bedroom space.

The Property - A substantial stone built, white washed detached property of traditional Dales construction set under a pitched stone slate roof. Currently trading as Buckden Village Store from the ground floor. Situated in the attractive village of Buckden and with the most spectacular views of the surrounding limestone scars and fells. This has to be one of the most picturesque and idyllic locations in the Yorkshire Dales National Park. Currently with the ground floor accommodation to the main house predominately taken up with the sales areas and with the primary living accommodation on the first and second floors. With substantial shop / sales area, kitchen, dining room, large living room, house bathroom and two / three bedrooms, but with potential to create four or five bedrooms. With an attractive side garden laid mainly to Yorkshire Stone and with timber fence and hedge boundaries, cobbled approach to the front door and parking to the side. With great potential, this property can continue as the Village Stores, or returned back to a substantial residential property. The property sits adjacent to the village green and with an open aspect to the beautiful Yorkshire Dales landscape. Offered for sale by private treaty, the current owner is now looking forward to retirement, having served this part of The Dales community for close to 40 years.
