Pleasantly located in un-spoilt rolling countryside, this interesting property is constructed in traditional Yorkshire stone and covered with a heavy Grey slate roof, providing a rare and unique opportunity to acquire a Grade II listed family home retaining many original features but which has also been the subject of considerable modernisation and improvement with no expense spared including high quality Bathrooms and a Secret Drawer Dining Kitchen.

Externally there is a Detached Double Garage, ample on-site parking, good sized rear gardens with close up views directly towards Cowling Pinnacle and a large garden and vegetable plot to the front with breathtaking views across the valley.
