General remarks

The Rafters forms an individual and character home in a stunning setting enjoying uninterrupted views across Wharfedale – and yet is just a few minutes drive from the local towns of Otley and Ilkley with their comprehensive amenities.

The property is offered for sale with extensive paddocks and a ménage, the site in all totalling around 4.49 acres. The accommodation offers considerable flexibility and clear scope to be adapted to suit a future purchaser's requirements – there is even an area of undeveloped barn forming part of the property which could be converted to offer a couple of bedrooms and further bathroom facility – subject of course to any necessary consents.

The accompanying floor plans and photographs give a flavour of the accommodation on offer which in summary include a stunning dual aspect dining kitchen with lofty eaves eaves; a living room with far reaching aspects; a master bedroom suite with shower room and dressing area off, whilst to the first floor there is a substantial room which could be subdivided to form additional bedroom space but is presently used as a large living area/bedroom 2 with mezzanine over and stylish bathroom off.

The opportunity to acquire a well priced home with a substantial land holding is relatively rare, and yet the sale of The Rafters includes a total site of around 4.49 acres – ideal for those with equestrian or space consuming hobbies.

Nearby Otley is a traditional market town with a broad range of everyday amenities including sports clubs, popular pubs and restaurants, and well regarded grammar school. At nearby Guiseley (2 miles), there are frequent rail services throughout the day into both Leeds and Bradford with connects up Wharfedale to nearby Ilkley.

The sale of The Rafters offers a compelling opportunity to acquire a convenient and contemporary family home with what must be some of the finest views within the region.

Interested parties might be interested to know that the adjoining property, West Chevin House, is also for sale and provides four bedroom accommodation and an additional 3.84 acres of land. The vendors would consider a sale of both properties together.

From the roundabout at the western end of the Otley Bypass proceed towards the town centre and turn almost immediately right onto West Chevin Road. Follow this road out of the town for approximately 1 mile and after a sharp left hand bend turn immediately left onto Moor Top, take the entrance to West Chevin Farm and The Rafters will be seen at the head of the driveway to the left hand side.
