Sold Subject To Contract
Enjoying an absolutely stunning rural location perched upon the hillside above Carleton village commanding spectacular long distance panoramic views over the beautiful surrounding fields and countryside towards Gargrave and the Yorkshire Dales beyond, this spacious and superbly appointed stone barn conversion benefits from land and gardens extending to circa three quarters of an acre which have been imaginatively landscaped by the current Vendors over the last 28 years to create the most magnificent and remarkable gardens which must be experienced first hand in order to be fully believed and appreciated.
The incredible gardens have been subject to considerable investment on behalf of the Vendors, both financially and emotionally, and really do provide a very special and unusual feature offering an opportunity to escape from the trappings of modern life to your own secret 'rural oasis', having a high level of peace and privacy and with each area having its own distinct purpose and attraction.
Offering an ideal sanctuary for a wide variety of birds and other wildlife, the gardens will certainly be appreciated by anyone with a keen interest in horticulture and/or the natural world and cleverly incorporate a choice of secluded sitting areas together with delightful pathways leading through a mix of open lawns and pretty woodland areas. There is a wide variety of beautiful specimen trees and a pathway leading down to an impressive 40' pond with stream and waterfall offering a tranquil setting whilst also benefiting from the breath-taking views over the surrounding open countryside.
This superb home also features a generous gated driveway providing extensive private parking and turning facilities extending to the side and rear whilst also leading to a deep adjoining single garage/workshop.
Internally the spacious and well-planned accommodation incorporates a range of attractive character features and is thoughtfully designed to take advantage of the remarkable long distance elevated views to the rear with the property backing directly onto unspoilt open fields and farmland and with two of the Yorkshire Dales Three Peaks visible on the horizon on a clear day.
A central front reception hall with galleried landing and original barn door opening leads into a spacious through living room with open fire and full height feature window offering magnificent views. There is an opening through to a useful dining room / snug, also having views, whilst the ground floor also includes a through dining kitchen with further views, range cooker and high quality bespoke fitted larder cupboards.

To the first floor a galleried landing with useful walk-in wardrobe leads to four double bedrooms and a well appointed house bathroom. Again all rooms enjoy superb rural views whilst one of the bedrooms includes a useful adjoining store/study room together with an en-suite shower room.
Although positioned in an enviable rural location, the property is still conveniently situated being only circa half a mile away from the centre of the village and only a short ten minute drive from the increasingly popular nearby market town of Skipton with its extensive range of shops and other amenities including excellent secondary schooling.
