Beech Grove, Main Street, Sutton in Craven, BD20 7JS

GUIDE PRICE £595,000

Handsomely constructed in coursed Yorkshire stone in an era when quality was the order of the day, this magnificent 6 Bedroomed detached house must surely be one of the largest and finest family homes in the village, having rooms of generous proportions in a traditional four square layout on the ground and first floor levels; these containing a delightful blend of original features including high coved ceilings but also served by the more modern comforts of uPVC double glazing and gas fired central heating from dual combination boilers.

Although the property would benefit from further cosmetic improvement, it possesses considerable further potential with particular reference to the external grounds which extend to in excess of a quarter of an acre; having a detached Double Garage at the rear (this has previously had planning passed for conversion which has now lapsed), the whole being securely enclosed by stone walls with attractive half moon tops approached via an imposing gated entrance and sweeping driveway.

Sutton is an extremely popular village which has become increasingly sought after in recent years, partly due to the success of the highly acclaimed South Craven Secondary School and a range of other excellent Primary Schools and local amenities, also being well situated within comfortable commuting distance of the larger towns and city’s of Skipton, Keighley, Leeds and Manchester.

Exuding an aura of real substance, the property covers more than 3000 sq ft over 3 floor levels (also having an additional 800 sq ft cellar), is very highly recommended for viewing and in more detail comprises:
