NO FORWARD CHAIN
Ideally positioned in the south of the Yorkshire Dales National Park, only a mile from the village of Gargrave and approximately five miles from the historic market town of Skipton, this truly unique stone built conversion property enjoys a desirable courtyard position within this impressive redevelopment of this magnificent Grade II Listed country house and provides versatile two/three bedroomed en-suite accommodation including the great advantage of two private parking spaces.

The spacious and well planned accommodation includes a range of attractive character features and, despite being converted circa ten years ago, still retains the feeling of a newly renovated property, having been principally used as a second home since it was originally purchased and therefore clearly having suffered minimal wear and tear.

This superior and highly individual stone built home is laid out in the style of a split level bungalow and includes a reception hallway leading to a spacious open plan living and dining space with large feature window, high ceiling and a stylish modern fitted kitchen area with granite worktop surfaces and integrated appliances. There is a well proportioned master bedroom with luxurious en-suite shower room together with a further double bedroom and luxurious house bathroom. From the hallway, a staircase leads to a further sitting room which could easily be used as a third/guest bedroom or study/hobby room if required.

Offering a high level of prestige, comfort and privacy within an extremely safe and secure residential environment, the property certainly represents an exciting opportunity for those searching for a truly individual 'ready to occupy' character home within this sought after Yorkshire Dales location and will appeal to those requiring easy to manage, modern accommodation with minimal external maintenance. The accommodation is presented in outstanding condition throughout and viewing is highly recommended indeed.

The historic Eshton Hall was tastefully restored and converted in 2005 by Messrs Burley Developments to create a fabulous selection of luxurious homes within this highly desirable rural setting.

The development is accessed via a secure gated entrance and is surrounded by fully maintained, landscaped communal gardens providing a particularly impressive feature whilst also including excellent private parking facilities.



Although the estate dates back over 800 years, the existing house was successfully remodelled for the Wilson family in 1825, using an Elizabethan revival style designed by architect George Webster of Kendal. Sir Matthew Wilson was a local magistrate and MP and his statue now stands in a prominent location on Skipton High Street. His half sister, Francis Mary Richardson-Currer, was famed for having one of the finest collections of books in the country and it is suggested that her library may have been an inspiration for the Bronte sisters, with Charlotte Bronte writing Jayne Eyre under the pseudonym of 'Currer Bell'.

The estate is surrounded by beautiful open countryside and attracts a variety of birds and other wildlife including deer. It is also home to the annual Gargrave Show.

On the route of the famous Pennine Way, the nearby village of Gargrave offers a variety of shops and other local amenities together with a good selection of places to eat and drink. There is a railway station and the village is intersected by both the scenic River Aire and also the Leeds/Liverpool canal. The area is surrounded by beautiful open countryside, offering a great choice of walking routes and other outdoor pursuits.

Lavishly appointed to an exceptional standard throughout incorporating high quality fixtures and fittings including elegant bespoke designed doors with quality fittings, the property is also equipped with LPG central heating, a security alarm system, secondary glazing and a video intercom system and comprises in further detail:
