A winding driveway leads you to Gargrave House – a pretty period property surrounded by farmland and mature natural woodland. You could easily mistake it for the backdrop of a period drama. Set in around six acres of stunning communal gardens, this apartment (number 8) has two allocated parking spaces and a secure outdoor storage unit – large enough for keen cyclists to store their bikes.
The property is tucked away in a secluded position in the popular village of Gargrave, perched on the edge of the Yorkshire Dales National Park. Originally constructed in 1917 by the distinguished Scottish architect James Dunn, Gargrave House now contains 12 unique apartments, each with their own distinct architectural detail. And whilst the property has been newly-decorated and carpeted throughout, it still holds its pretty period qualities.
Eight Gargrave House is a striking and sophisticated two-bedroom apartment on the first floor. The apartment is approached through a welcoming communal hall, with a further receptionlanding area on the first floor leading to a private entrance. The sitting room features magnificent period detail, including a welcoming fireplace, decorative coving and plasterwork and a soaring ceiling. The well-equipped kitchen has a range of stylish base and wall units, finished in Stone by Little Greene, with contrasting black granite worktops. There’s also a range of appliances including a Miele fan oven, gas hob with extractor and a dishwasher. The sink faces a large window with plantation shutters, and views over those stunning grounds we mentioned. The principal bedroom is light and airy with twin windows and a fully tiled ensuite shower room featuring a walk-in shower, wash hand basin and WC.The second bedroom is also a double, with plantation shutters to the window.
The lovely (and generously-sized) bathroom adds a modern touch to the apartment with tiling to the walls and floor and a suite including a bath, separate shower enclosure, wash basin, WC and a heated towel rail.
While there’s plenty of space to stretch your legs within the grounds, the village is scattered with shops, pubs, a post office and a railway station – and it’s just a stone’s throw from Skipton and Leeds.
