NOW REQUIRING MODERNISATION THROUGHOUT - A CHARMING 3 BEDROOMED PERIOD COTTAGE WITH CONSIDERABLE FURTHER POTENTIAL
Constructed in 1785 and originally forming one detached house, number 5 stands in the middle of three converted & extended period stone built cottages, with the row having a charming history; at one time all belonging to the same family as the current vendors.
The accommodation extends to in excess of 850 square feet, briefly including 3 good sized Bedrooms (all have room for a double bed), a Bathroom, a large Sitting Room with a feature stone fireplace and a Kitchen & Garden Room (these rooms offer considerable potential for adaption to provide a superb Living Kitchen with doors giving access to the rear garden).
Sutton-in-Craven is a much admired semi rural village, known for being an ideal community to raise a family with everyday amenities available in nearby Cross Hills including the outstanding South Craven Secondary School; also being well situated 10 minutes equidistant to the larger towns of Skipton & Keighley, providing excellent network links to the larger business centres of Leeds & Bradford.
Pleasantly located nearby to popular walks up Sutton Clough, this characterful property has recently been re-roofed but requires further modernisation and in detail comprises:
