This imposing and beautifully presented house stands in one of the Skipton's most prestigious locations, in the exclusive 'Raikes' area of town. The property sits approximately half a mile from the town's High Street and numerous facilities. These include high quality shops, supermarkets, restaurants, public houses, places of worship etc whilst Ermysteds Boys Grammar and Skipton's Girls High Schools, both widely acclaimed as some of the finest state schools in the north, are only a short distance from the house. Skipton is known as the Gateway to the Dales and only a few miles distant is some of the county's finest countryside. Easy commuter access to Leeds and Bradford and direct trains to London aswell. Leeds Bradford airport is also within 40 minutes drive.

The accommodation comprises a front entrance porch into a large open hallway providing access to the lower ground floor and the upper ground floor living accommodation. Via the hallway there is access to the substantial master bedroom with ample fitted wardrobes and a beautifully appointed four piece ensuite with bath, walk in rainfall shower, wash basin and dual flush w.c. The upper ground floor also comprises the superbly fitted dining kitchen with granite worktops, a range of fitted wall and base units, Britannia stove with six ring gas hob, cooker hood, recess for fridge freezer and dishwasher, inset stainless steel sink unit and a central island. The dining kitchen benefits from enough space to fit a four seater family dining table. From the dining kitchen there is access to the lounge which is well proportioned and leads through to a separate study which is a room that could be converted for several uses. The lounge opens out onto the feature balcony with stunning long distance views and providing a perfect spot for al fresco dining. Via the kitchen there is a separate utility room again fitted with granite worktops, inset Belfast sink unit, plumbing for a washing machine and dryer and fitted wall and base units. To the rear of the property is a spacious conservatory which looks out onto rear garden which can be accessed by the French patio doors. The upper ground floor also offers a handsomely proportioned living dining room with space for a 8 seater family dining table. The living room also has large windows providing abundant natural lighting which is the same for most of the house helping to give a light and airy feel.

To the lower ground floor are a further three good sized double bedrooms, two of which have well-appointed ensuite shower rooms. There is also the house bathroom which comprises a four piece suite with bath, walk in shower, back to wall w.c. And back to wall wash basin. The house bathroom also has ample storage space with three cupboards. The lower ground floor has a games room which similarly to the study could be converted for several uses.

Externally the property is approached by a private tarmacadam driveway with ample parking for several vehicles which in turn leads to a detached double garage. To the rear of the property is a meticulously maintained landscaped garden mainly laid to lawn with a well-established flower, tree and shrub border which borders the whole of the property. There is also a spacious stone flagged patio area which benefits from a pergola offering the perfect outside space for the summer months. To the front and side are further areas of garden mainly laid to lawn and a well-established flower and shrub section.

From Skipton town centre drive towards the top of the High Street and take the left as if you were driving towards Grassington. Follow this road and don't take the left turn towards Raikes. The property is located on the right marked by our Dacre, Son & Hartley 'For Sale' board.
