Occupying a truly beautiful setting, this two bedroom end stone built cottage is well presented and has wonderful gardens to both the front and rear; the rear backing on to the picturesque River Wharfe. Set over two floors, the property combines many fine character features with modern fixtures and fittings to create a charming home and is centrally positioned in Otley to be within easy reach of the town's amenities. Of particular note is the lovely cottage garden to the front which has been creatively planted over the years with the addition of a calming water feature. But don't take our word for it, this property must be seen to be fully appreciated and comes to the market with no onwards chain.
Otley is a thriving, historical market town in the Wharfe Valley offering a wide range of amenities, shops, supermarkets (Waitrose is approximately a five minute walk away from the house) and traditional pubs. The town centre bus station has regular bus services to Leeds, Bradford and Harrogate, and in addition, there is a railway station at nearby Menston offering mainline links. And for those travelling further afield, Leeds/Bradford International Airport is in nearby Yeadon.
