Tenure: Freehold

Wood Cottage is a beautiful, detached property located in the picturesque hamlet of Low Greenfields at Beckermonds, comprising of five houses.

Beckermonds is situated in the picturesque Upper Wharfe Valley, where the River Wharfe is formed. The quaint villages of Buckden and Hubberholme are only within a couple of miles with a local pub, and Kettlewell slightly further with tea shop, pub and primary school. Just over 7 miles away is the town of Hawes with a range of shops, pubs, tearooms, doctors surgery, school and many more.

The property is in a rural yet accessible location and sits in a cluster of five houses. It is located down a council maintained road which leads to Greenfield forestry. The property is perfect for anyone looking for a peaceful retreat and enjoys superb open views over the valley.

Wood Cottage is a spacious property with huge potential. On the ground floor there is a welcoming hallway with a downstairs WC and utility room. There is a lovely, open plan kitchen/diner and a second reception room both of which have multi fuel stoves. Upstairs there are three double, en-suite bedrooms. The house benefits from a biomass central heating system which will generate approximately £30,000 over the next 3 years through RHI (renewable heat incentive) payments. The property also benefits from good internet speeds and the local school bus collects in Beckmonds.

Outside, there is private parking for multiple vehicles as well as an attractive patio area to the front with planted flower beds, a fish pond and lovely seating areas. It's the perfect spot to sit out and enjoy the sunshine. There is a generous size paddock to the front, currently housing a couple of sheep and goats. There is an established lawn area to the side which is fenced with greenhouses and space for chickens. To the rear is another good size paddock with woodland area. The grounds are approximately just over an acre and are ideal for keeping animals such as chickens or goats. There is also a very large barn which is attached to the property. There is access from the utility room of Wood Cottage into the barn as well as a separate access from outside. The barn is supplied with electric, power and water and currently has a full mezzanine storage area. It has huge potential as it has been granted planning permission to create a five bedroom extension which is up to first floor level. All planning and inspection costs have been paid for.

Wood Cottage is a fantastic house in an idyllic setting. It is an ideal family home and would also suit those looking for a project. Alternatively it would be perfect for anyone who is looking to work from home and run a business. School transport is provided if needed making it a great place to bring up a family. Viewing is highly recommended to appreciate what is on offer and to also take in the location.
