The Croft, The Fold, Lothersdale,
'The Croft' now provides significant potential for modernisation and improvement. The property is also offered for sale with the optional benefit of a submitted planning application for a very imaginative two storey extension scheme to create a very large property of distinction.
Incorporating oil fired central heating, sealed unit double glazing, a private driveway, an adjoining double garage with a car port and also the unique advantage of a small detached stone cottage/studio within the grounds, 'The Croft' certainly represents an outstanding opportunity and is strongly recommended indeed for inspection.
Described very briefly, the property comprises:
A spacious entrance hall and reception hall, a living and dining room through to a sitting room which commands superb long distance open southerly views at the rear. The fitted kitchen includes solid wood units with granite worktops, an island unit and appliances. There is an inner hall, a cloaks/WC and a utility room. The master bedroom includes an en-suite. There are two further double bedrooms, a shower room and a bathroom. To the front of the bungalow are established gardens also incorporating a private driveway giving access to an adjoining double garage with a boiler/store room and an adjoining car port. The unusually large established rear garden provides a very attractive feature - bordering fields and countryside whilst enjoying spectacular long distance open southerly views. Also at the rear is a stone detached cottage/studio building planned on two floors whist offering potential for a variety of uses. There is also a greenhouse and a garden store.
Surrounded by beautiful open countryside, the very popular rural village of Lothersdale is situated adjacent to the Pennine Way and close to the Yorkshire/Lancashire border. Local amenities include a primary school, a Church, a public house, a village hall and community events.
The towns of Skipton, Keighley, Ilkley and Colne are all situated within circa fifteen/twenty minutes travelling distance by car whilst the business centres of West Yorkshire and East Lancashire are within comfortable daily commuting distance.
Railway stations are available in the nearby villages of Cononley and Steeton.
