NO FORWARD CHAIN
Certainly representing a rare and exciting opportunity, this charming and deceptively spacious stone terraced cottage provides imaginatively planned accommodation arranged over three floors and enjoys an extremely convenient central location set back from the lower end of Raikes Road, close to the canal and the castle, only 200 yards from the high street and with all other shops and amenities nearby.

Believed to date back to the 17th century, this interesting and very appealing home includes gas central heating together with UPVC sealed unit double glazing and is strongly recommended indeed for inspection.

Described very briefly, the cottage provides - a living room with a period fireplace and a fitted kitchen with built-in appliances whilst on the first floor are two bedrooms and a bathroom with a modern three piece white suite/shower. There is a spacious attic third bedroom on the second floor with velux windows and staircase access.

Recently voted 'the best place to live in Britain' by the Sunday Times, the historic market town of Skipton certainly lives up to expectations, offering a superb environment for residents of all ages whilst enjoying the perfect combination of excellent schooling, easy access to countryside and an extensive choice of leisure, shopping and recreational facilities. The bustling high street features an outdoor market situated on the cobbled 'setts' four days a week and also includes an excellent mix of well known branded stores such as Next, Marks & Spencers and House of Fraser together with a variety of other independent shops, restaurants, cafés and traditional pubs serving locally brewed ale. The town enjoys an annual programme of community events and festivals and also benefits from a good degree of tourism, with Skipton Castle being considered to be one of the best preserved castles still standing in England. The Yorkshire Dales National Park is only a short drive away to the north and the town is intersected by the scenic Leeds/Liverpool canal, offering level walks along the towpath. There are excellent public transport links, including a railway station providing regular daily services to Leeds, Bradford and beyond.
