About this home
A unique three bedroom converted cottage in Skipton, North Yorkshire. The home is spread across four floors and located in the former school, in which we’ve worked with the original period features and footprint of the building to create a c. 1670 sq. ft. home that’s made for modern living.
The cottage is entered via its private courtyard garden, providing easy access to its two designated parking spaces. On the other side of the house, on Church Lane, an original Neo Gothic entrance has been retained and restored, though the door has been blocked and is no longer usable. The building’s original lancet-shaped windows also feature.
Once inside there is a spacious entrance hall, and we’ve worked with the original footprint of the building to create the cloakroom that leads from it, which explains the room’s unique shape! Most of the ground floor is given over to an open plan island kitchen, dining and living room with double doors leading to the garden. The glass lightwell in the floor that provides light to the basement below and the framed feature window are sure to be talking points too! In the basement itself you can expect innovative lighting design to further maximise light. Most of this floor is given over to an expansive living space that could be used as a cosy sitting room or home cinema, and there is also a substantial storage space, a small study area and dedicated storage for wine.
Up on the first floor are two double bedrooms, roughly equal in size, which share a bathroom with bath. The entire second floor is given over to the master bedroom with original, decorative cast iron fireback and en suite shower room. There is also attic storage on this floor.
Priced at £550,000.
