Presented in immaculate condition throughout whilst benefiting from two private parking spaces within direct view of the apartment, this spacious two double bedroomed penthouse forms part of this magnificent conversion of a Grade II Listed country mansion, set in circa six acres of beautiful tree lined grounds and parkland whilst being conveniently located only a short walk away from the excellent range of amenities available in the sought after village of Gargrave.
Gargrave House is positioned in a truly enviable location close to the southern fringe of the Yorkshire Dales National Park, only four miles from the historic market town of Skipton and was successfully converted in 2005 to provide an exclusive selection of luxury dwellings which must be viewed first hand in order to be fully appreciated.
The development is set in a peaceful and secluded private setting on the edge of the village, being accessed via a sweeping driveway which leads through the impressive, fully maintained gardens adjoining open fields and countryside, offering a vast expanse of undisturbed rural landscape to explore from the doorstep.
The original building was completed circa 1917 and was designed by the distinguished Scottish architect James Dunn who was responsible for a number of historic and important buildings in Edinburgh. This prestigious twentieth century dwelling was commissioned by John William Coulthurst and it is understood that the Coulthurst family have resided on the site since the seventeenth century, with the foundations of their Jacobean residence traceable under the lawn.
Number ten forms part of the main building, being accessed via the impressive front reception hall with double arched portico. The extremely well maintained communal areas are beautifully furnished and decorated throughout and benefit from numerous Baroque style architectural features including exquisite decorative plasterwork together with two magnificent staircases, a domed skylight and the convenience of lift access to the second floor level. The apartment itself can be accessed from both staircases with the second entrance door being positioned close to the lift and includes a spacious private entrance hall with store room, a dining kitchen with integrated appliances, a living room with feature fireplace, two double bedrooms also having feature fireplaces and a luxurious bathroom with contemporary four piece suite. The accommodation is presented in excellent cosmetic condition throughout including neutral décor and fitted carpets and with all principal rooms enjoying superb open elevated views over the communal grounds towards the nearby surrounding trees and woodland. In addition to the two private parking spaces, the property also benefits from a useful external storage shed/store room within a separate designated block nearby. Visitor parking is also available.
