This superb 18th century former cotton mill was originally converted in 1975, having fallen into disrepair in the 1960's after being used for packing cotton and tobacco during the second world war.

More recently the mill and various buildings associated with it have undergone a substantial and meticulous programme of restoration and renovation works to create a thoroughly modern family home with excellent eco credentials, which still manages to retain the property's original integrity and striking period features, including the impressive water wheel.

Ideally suited to multi-generational living, the vendors have created an impressive two bedroom, two bathroom apartment within the main residence which benefits from it's own private entrance but seamless flows into the main accommodation if required. The property also features a beautiful holiday suite - The Engine House, which has been created over three floors. Both are currently run as successful holiday lets.

The property benefits from three air source heat pumps, fully insulated walls and floors and scope to run hydro driven power from the beck running underneath the mill.

The main residence extends to just over 4,400 square feet of accommodation, with large spacious rooms designed to emphasis the building's heritage. It is clear that a great deal of thought has gone into the layout and finish.

Upon entering the kitchen-dining room your eyes are immediately drawn to the spectacular glass encased mill wheel. The contemporary kitchen is equipped with high-end appliances, ample storage space, and a central island, perfect for entertaining guests. The kitchen area seamlessly flows into the dining room, creating a versatile space for both intimate gatherings and larger social events.

The spacious sitting room is flooded with light, thanks to the large glass wall, with windows looking out across the garden and a beautiful feature fireplace, this room is the ideal place to retreat to on an evening. Continuing through the ground floor there is a guest bedroom with en suite shower room and a study which could easily double as a further bedroom.

There's the added benefit of a stone flagged conservatory for which the vendors have had plans drawn up to convert into a garden room with terrace above serving the upstairs sitting room (plans available by request - computer generated image also available).

The first floor comprises of an impressing living room with a log burning stove and windows looking out over the gardens and open countryside beyond. A door leads on to the principal bedroom suite with dressing room and en suite bathroom.

The carefully integrated two bedroom, two bathroom Sunny Bank apartment also sits on the first floor, complete with a beautiful open plan kitchen-sitting room and its own private entrance.

The second floor accommodation features two generous bedrooms, both with en suite bath rooms, making ideal accommodation for guests or teenagers.

The property sits in a discrete position, approached by a private driveway leading to off street parking for several cars. The house looks out onto a beautiful walled garden, planted with well-stocked borders and a large patio, perfect for al-fresco dining.

The garden leads down to a circular seating area with central firepit with views down to the river below. At the end of the garden is an impressive stone chimney, part of the original mill.

Although Crown Spindle Mill enjoys an idyllic and secluded location, the property is less than a mile from the popular village of Embsay. The village is served by an array of local amenities, including a highly regarded primary school, a Church, a shop/sub post office, two public houses, a village hall hosting numerous community events, sports clubs, a regular bus service and the Embsay Heritage steam railway line.

The historic market town of Skipton, known as the 'Gateway to the Dales', is less than two miles away providing extensive shops, amenities, and services together with excellent secondary schooling. The business centres of West Yorkshire and East Lancashire are also within comfortable daily commuting distance.
