MAINS HOUSE, THE MAINS, GIGGLESWICK, SETTLE, BD24 0AX

Outstanding and rare opportunity to acquire a superb majority portion of this quality period semi detached residence which is located in an enviable position on edge of the edge of Giggleswick Village just within The Yorkshire Dales National Park.

The property stands within extensive overgrown gardens with commanding elevated views over Settle and Giggleswick to the hills beyond.

Currently the property is split into 3 apartments but it could easily be reverted back to a large family residence subject to the necessary approvals.

In need of a complete modernisation programme but offers huge potential with many interesting character features still evident and spacious light airy accommodation throughout.

The property has not been offered to the market for at least 65 years as it has been in the same family ownership, hence the rarity of the opportunity.

The property's gardens may have development potential but will be subject to an overage clause, the purchaser to make their own investigations to the planning office.

Giggleswick is a popular village adjoining the market town of Settle. All local amenities are available in the area including public and private schools, primary schools, transport links via the famous Settle Carlisle Railway, bus services etc.

Well worthy of internal and external inspection to fully appreciate the size, quality and scope for improvement.
