A rare opportunity to acquire a sensitively restored three bedroom cottage, which retains many original features. Located in the popular hamlet of Bell Busk, the property benefits from private off-road parking for two cars and a delightful garden to the rear.

The cottage dates from the 1790s and was built to house workers for the local silk mill. It is set over three floors and has distinctive original features, such as traditional flagstone flooring in the kitchen/diner, exposed beams, window seats, wooden floors, cast iron fireplaces in the first floor bedrooms, wooden panelled doors and period cupboards. In addition, the house has been thoughtfully decorated throughout using Farrow & Ball and Little Greene colour schemes.

Bell Busk is an idyllic hamlet set on the boundary of the Yorkshire Dales National Park and has access to outstanding views and walks. Enjoying this beautiful rural location, it lies just 5 minutes from the A65 and is within commuting distance of Leeds and Bradford. Bell Busk is a short drive from the village of Gargrave, which has many local amenities, including a primary school, mainline train station, post office, pubs and shops. The thriving market town of Skipton is also close by.

On the ground floor, main access is into the dining kitchen, which has fitted base units with space for a fridge and washing machine, as well as a hob and oven. There is a working Victorian cast iron range, by Manby & Son of Skipton, set within the original stone fire surround and a period flagstone floor. The staircase leading from the dining kitchen is enclosed and there is a storage cupboard under the stairs. A panelled door leads through to the living room, with immediate access to a utility room on the left. The living room is of good size and has polished wood floorboards, a window seat and a wood burning stove set in the original stone fire surround.

To the first floor are two double bedrooms. The master bedroom has a walk-in wardrobe and its original wide polished floorboards, stone and cast iron fireplace, window seat and exposed beams. The second bedroom also has a cast iron fireplace and tiled surround, exposed beams and the window seat has delightful views of the surrounding countryside, taking in Haw Crag. There is provision for a small en-suite.

To the second floor is a third double bedroom, with a useful alcove cupboard and under eaves storage. The spacious family bathroom is fitted in an Edwardian style with period glass lighting, traditional reproduction tiles, double ended bath with thermostatic shower over, pedestal wash basin and w.c. There is a large storage area and airing cupboard in the eaves.

Externally the property has a good rear sized garden, which is mainly laid to lawn with a pebbled path and a mature planted border. There is the additional benefit of two stone built outbuildings, useful for wood storage, bins and garden utensils.
