NO FORWARD CHAIN
Enjoying a superb elevated position within this delightful rural setting, immediately adjoining open fields and countryside whilst commanding spectacular long distance panoramic views across the valley, this impressive stone barn conversion benefits from a private block paved driveway providing parking for up to four cars together with attractive garden areas enjoying a remarkable degree of privacy.

Imaginatively designed to take advantage of the superb open views which must be seen first hand to be fully appreciated, this truly individual property offers well planned accommodation including three bedrooms, three bathrooms and a range of attractive character features including exposed beams, trusses and stonework.

Internally the spacious ground floor layout has been thoughtfully planned and includes a useful entrance hall/boot room with built-in cloaks cupboard, a ground floor shower room, a good size living room with wood burning stove and an impressive dining kitchen with adjoining study/play room. The kitchen has been cleverly designed, incorporating a superb vaulted ceiling with galleried landing together with a range of exposed beams and trusses. There is potential for the kitchen to be extended into the adjoining study/play room if desired and there is also a well equipped utility room, including external access onto the rear garden and therefore providing an ideal clothes drying area. As described, the spacious ground floor layout has been thoughtfully designed, yet still offers potential for alteration or perhaps even a conservatory/garden room extension, subject to necessary consent. To the first floor a landing leads to three well planned bedrooms and the house bathroom. All three bedrooms enjoy superb open views, whilst the master bedroom also benefits from an en-suite shower room.

Externally the property is accessed via a shared driveway serving only one other adjoining/neighbouring property. The shared driveway leads to a generous private block paved driveway providing excellent off street parking for at least four cars. There is a very good sized level stone paved patio area extending to the side and rear, providing a superb sitting out space and with gate and decking leading down to a further sloping lawned garden with two timber sheds. Despite commanding impressive open views over the surrounding fields and countryside and towards Skipton and the Dales, the gardens still enjoy an excellent degree of privacy, being somewhat screened from the neighbouring dwellings by mature trees/bushes to the boundary.

Westy Bank Croft is a small exclusive development converted from a former farmstead circa twenty years ago and is pleasantly located in a desirable rural setting on the southern edge of the village, ideal for those searching for a more relaxed and peaceful life style and with immediate access to the beautiful surrounding countryside. For those interested in nature and the outdoors, the scenic Keighley town is only a short walking distance away and attracts a variety of birds and other wildlife providing a delightful setting.



Despite being positioned in such an idyllic rural location, the towns of Skipton, Ilkley and Colne are all only approximately fifteen minutes travelling distance by car whilst the business centres of West Yorkshire and East Lancashire are also within comfortable daily commuting distance. Keighley town centre is only circa two miles away and the picturesque Bronte country is only a short distance beyond.

The very popular village of Steeton is served by a good variety of local amenities including everyday shops, a sub post office, a mini supermarket, a primary school, a Church and chapel, public houses, a hotel/restaurant, a bus service, a doctors surgery, Airedale hospital complex and also a railway station which provides a regular service to Skipton, Keighley, Leeds and Bradford. The nearby village of Cross Hills includes South Craven secondary school which has been awarded an 'Outstanding' rating in recent years.
