Full description

Conveniently located only a short stroll from Skipton High Street with its excellent choice of shops, pubs and other attractions, this substantial stone built Victorian through terraced property offers deceptively spacious accommodation arranged over four floors, including extensive basement/cellar rooms together with two double bedrooms and a useful attic space.

Offered at a realistic asking price and with great potential to increase value with a scheme of further modernisation and improvement, this very appealing property certainly represents a superb opportunity, and would be ideal for those searching for a generously proportioned stone built period home within this desirable central position.

Strongly recommended for inspection, the accommodation comprises briefly;

A reception hall, a living room with period fireplace, an open plan dining kitchen with views over Otley Road, two cellar rooms, two first floor double bedrooms, a bathroom with modern three piece white suite and a useful attic space (not a bedroom) with velux window and steep staircase access from the second bedroom. To the rear of the house is an enclosed yard/sitting out area and there is also an external store with access from Otley Road and with potential to access from the cellar.

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, cafes 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.
