3 HIGH CROFT WAY
A spacious, versatile and well laid out property in an elevated position in the popular village of Farnhill with stunning views over the Aire Valley.
The property is located in the extremely popular village of Farnhill close to the Leeds Liverpool Canal with fantastic views across the Aire Valley and beyond.
Farnhill and the neighbouring village of Kildwick are served by a variety of local amenities including a well respected primary school, church and public house whilst the larger towns of Skipton, Keighley, Colne and Ilkley are all within easy travelling distance.
Farnhill’s strategic location is completed by the frequent train services to Leeds and Bradford from the railway stations in the nearby villages of Cononley and Steeton.
Kildwick and Farnhill are bisected by the Leeds Liverpool Canal and the proximity to the Yorkshire Dales adds to Farnhill’s overall attraction.
Constructed in the 1960s the property is a substantial detached house located in a stunning elevated position on a small and popular cul-de-sac development.
Alterations and additions by the current owners have led to spacious and versatile accommodation which demands an internal inspection to fully appreciate the accommodation on offer as well as the potential for creating additional space.
With the majority of the living accommodation on one floor, the clever development of the lower ground floor by the existing owners gives scope for self-contained accommodation for either an elderly or teenage family member.
On the Upper Ground Floor:
Entrance Hall: With uPVC double glazed “front” door and side glazed panel opening onto a welcoming reception area leading to;
Cloakroom: Clever use of space has ensured the best use of this functional cloakroom which includes a sink, WC and corner shower with green and grey tiles and feature border, low voltage ceiling spotlights and a stainless steel ladder radiator.
Dining Kitchen: At the hub of the house, a superbly appointed dining kitchen with extensive range of beech wall and floor cupboards, including a spacious island unit. The marble effect worktop is complimented by the slate effect floor covering and the black tiled splash backs are an ideal companion to the chrome light fittings. Built-in appliances include fridge and separate freezer, microwave and oven and there is a four ring gas hob and 1½ stainless steel sink unit. Picture windows to the front let the light stream into this extremely functional dining kitchen and a door leads to a delightful small balcony and steps down to the garden. At the back of the kitchen is a useful cloaks cupboard and a doorway leads to;
Sitting Room: A spacious “L” shaped sitting room with windows to two sides giving spectacular panoramic views over the Aire Valley towards both Earl Crag and Ramshaw. The sitting room features an electric fire but plumbing exists for a gas fire if required. A clever extension gives staircase access to the lower ground floor which features;
Office Area: A good use of space has created a functional office area with fitted shelving and useful understairs store.
Living Area: Open plan to the office but easily separated if necessary, is a functional living/music area with built-in bookcases to one wall. Whilst only having “borrowed” natural light, the topography of the surrounding grounds means it would be quite easy to insert a window into this area. Adjoining the living area is;
Bedroom 3: A double bedroom with an en-suite shower room featuring a corner shower, wash hand basin and WC with a slate effect tiled floor and half height wall tiling.
With minor adaptation, the lower ground floor area can easily be converted to self-contained accommodation for a dependent relative as there is separate access to the gardens.
Back on the ground floor and leading from the dining kitchen a corridor takes you to;
Bedroom 1: A spacious master bedroom created by combining two bedrooms with windows to two sides and with feature glass effect fronted triple wardrobes and matching chest of drawers and bedside units. This master bedroom has distinct sleeping and dressing areas being created out of two bedrooms originally and it would be easy to recreate two bedrooms if required or split the dressing area to provide an en-suite facility.
Bedroom 2: A double bedroom to the rear of the property with useful fitted cupboards.
Shower Room: A modern practical room with walk-in double shower, tiled floor, toilet and seamless wash hand basin and top in Corian. Low voltage recessed ceiling lights and stainless steel ladder style radiator completes the room.
The property is approached by a tarmacadamed driveway leading to the steps to the “front” door and the double garage. There is off-road parking in front of the garage for at least five additional vehicles.
Once inside the double garage the rear of the garage opens to a workshop area and garden room with window overlooking the garden to the rear and a separate door leading to outside. Off the garage is a further sub-floor void currently used as a utility room and storage area. The scope for conversion of the undeveloped lower ground floor space is there for all to see and whilst the head height is currently restricted to approximately six feet, a multitude of uses is envisaged subject to any necessary approvals.
To one side of the property is a gravelled area and aluminium framed greenhouse and to the other side is a rockery garden with feature waterfall and pond. To the “rear” of the property is an enclosed garden laid predominantly to lawn with mature borders and steps leading up to the balcony bedecked with a magnificent mature clematis. Additionally there is a patio area and beside the door leading to the lower ground floor is a useful tool store which also houses the gas fired boiler.
All mains services are connected to the property and the property benefits from a gas fired hot water and central heating system served by a Worcester combination boiler located in the garden store.
The freehold interest in the property is being sold with full vacant possession on completion.
We are verbally advised by Craven District Council that the property is in Council Tax Band E(i). The normal charge for Band E properties in Farnhill for 2012/13 is £1863.16p.
