 £325,000

Constructed approximately 25 years ago in natural random Yorkshire stone covered with a traditional blue slate roof, this imposing property occupies an elevated position towards the top of Fold Lane on the very edge of open fields and countryside and in consequence enjoys a lovely open aspect with fine long distance views across the Aire Valley and towards Cowling Pinnacle.

Purpose built by the present owner, the spacious 2 Double Bedroomed bungalow is thoughtfully designed and briefly includes 2 Entrance Halls, a 26 ft Sitting Room with a multi fuel stove, Dining Room, Sun Room and a modern Bathroom, also having considerable further potential to extend into the fully boarded overall roof void (subject to obtaining the necessary building regulation approval).
