Tenure: Freehold

One of the most sought-after villages in Craven, Gargrave is located 4 miles West of Skipton and is within the catchment area for the well-regarded Skipton Grammar Schools. Surrounded by beautiful countryside and a justifiably popular place to live, Gargrave is almost entirely on the level and has its own railway station with train services connecting through to Skipton and then onto Bradford and Leeds. Within the village there is a good range of local shops as well as a supermarket, church, three public houses, doctor's and dentist's surgeries, primary school and well-patronised village hall with many community events. There are also sporting facilities including cricket club, football club, tennis and croquet. Alongside three charming village greens, the River Aire meanders through the village, as does the Leeds-Liverpool Canal with its colourful barges and pretty towpath walks.  

Gargrave House is set on the edge of the village and is acknowledged as one of the finest country houses in the area, originally built in 1917 by the distinguished Scottish architect James Dunn, who also designed a number of important buildings in Edinburgh. This historic Grade II Listed building was sympathetically and thoughtfully converted into 12 individual apartments in 2005/6, each with their own original features blending with modern luxury fixtures and fittings. 

The main entrance to the House features an impressive wide sweeping staircase with shallow treads, and Apartment 12 is accessed off the first floor (which also has lift access). Benefitting from gas-fired central heating, the accommodation is fully carpeted and immaculately presented, and with approximate room sizes in brief comprises:-
