Prospect House is a unique opportunity to purchase a fabulous, detached house with separate barns and paddock. Prospect House sits in an elevated position on the edge of Askrigg in Upper Wensleydale and benefits from having views over the village to the fells.

Askrigg is a picturesque village with its ancient market cross, notable church and cobbled central "green". It has a primary school, good general store, cafe, delicatessen, gift shop as well as 3 good pubs, a number of B&Bs and an excellent community life. It is famous for its Herriot connections, being the village where the original series All Creatures Great & Small was filmed.

Prospect House dates back to 1886, offering the character one would expect. The accommodation is spacious over two floors. On the ground floor is a superb, large living room and dining room leading through to a conservatory with great views in all directions. There is a kitchen to the rear, a traditional pantry and utility room. Upstairs are four good, double bedrooms, a family bathroom and shower room.

Prospect House has been under the same ownership for 52 years. The property has been well maintained having LPG gas central heating, double glazing and solar panels on the roof which provide hot water and electricity generation.

Outside to the front is a good size, South facing lawn garden. The garden has well stocked flower beds and is a pleasant area to sit out and take in the views over the village to Addlebrough in the distance.

Adjacent to the property is a detached, two storey barn which is currently used as a workshop. This could be converted subject to necessary planning permissions. In front of the barn is a stone flagged patio area with great views.

Directly in front of the barn is a 0.08 (approx.) acre paddock with a small, stone, field barn/ stable.
To the rear is a lane which provides vehicle access for two neighbouring properties and has private parking spaces for two vehicles.

Prospect House will make a fantastic family or active retirement home. It sits in a central yet quiet location in Askrigg.

A viewing is highly recommended to appreciate the scope and views from the property.
