Full description

A unique and extremely substantial converted country residence offering glamorous and immaculately presented accommodation benefitting from exquisite period features, stunning open views and a superb lower ground floor 'guest suite' providing useful supplementary living space.

Including the great advantage of designated private parking together with a single garage with power, this spacious and highly distinctive character home occupies an enviable ground floor position within this prestigious residential conversion of a historic Grade II listed country mansion, ideally positioned on the southern side of the scenic Yorkshire Dales National Park only five miles from Skipton and within easy commuting distance of all nearby business centres.

Beautifully appointed and offering a level of space and luxury that is often difficult to find within this price range, this property is strongly recommended for inspection and offers over two thousand five hundred square feet of accommodation, imaginatively planned over two floors and with both principal rooms benefitting from large picture windows commanding spectacular open views.

One of the most remarkable features of this contemporary period home is the magnificent open plan living room which must be seen first-hand to be fully appreciated. With high ceiling, ornate decorative plaster-work, opulent chandelier and wall lighting, large picture window and a substantial marble fireplace providing an impressive focal point. This extravagant room was originally the dining room serving Eshton Hall and certainly offers an exciting space for entertaining whilst also serving as a wonderful everyday living space.

This extremely well-proportioned 'duplex' style home also includes a fully integrated kitchen, a wine cellar, a games room, a cloak room, a utility room, two bathrooms and an impressive lower ground floor guest suite; providing spacious and extremely versatile supplementary living space, ideal for visitors or teenage children. The spacious guest room could be used as a further living room if required, and benefits from its own independent external access and small built-in kitchenette.

Despite offering generous two storey accommodation, this thoughtfully designed home may also appeal to those searching for an interesting alternative to a bungalow, with the ground floor alone sufficiently offering comfortable everyday living space for a single person or a couple.

Overall the accommodation is presented and maintained in immaculate condition throughout and benefits from high quality fixtures and fittings together with elegant bespoke internal doors and numerous charming original features.

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

On first arrival a secure gated entrance and sweeping landscaped driveway offer a prestigious first impression, whilst surrounding the hall there are attractive, fully maintained communal grounds which provide a splendid outdoor space to sit and admire the fine open views towards the local fells. In summer, why not mix a jug of Pimms and enjoy an afternoon picnic on the lawn! Alternatively, just grab your favourite book and deckchair and enjoy the peace and tranquillity of this enchanting rural setting, all without the ongoing burden of regular garden maintenance!

Despite being situated only a short driving distance away from Skipton and its many town centre amenities, Eshton Hall is surrounded by beautiful open countryside and attracts a variety of birds and other wildlife including deer. The estate benefits from some delightful scenic walks directly from the doorstep, whilst the nearby village of Gargrave (with railway station) is less than one mile away, providing a variety of shops and other amenities.

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'. No. 4 Eshton Hall is accessed via the impressive main communal entrance/reception area, with galleried oak staircase and magnificent glazed atrium providing a truly breath-taking spectacle.
