About this home
A distinctive cottage conversion in Skipton, North Yorkshire. Tempest Cottage is a modern, c. 1457 sq. ft., three bedroom, four storey home created within the historic walls of St. Stephen’s. It once formed the presbytery, meaning it was where the church priest would have lived and, like the other new homes we’ve created from converting the original buildings, it retains a wealth of beautiful original features.
The home is entered from the rear of the original building, and there is also an entrance via the private courtyard garden, from which its two designated parking spaces can easily be reached. On one side of the entrance hall is the large kitchen, which has two striking feature windows, one with a seat. Next to the stairs (which lead down to the basement and up to the first floor) on this side is the WC, and on the other side of the stairs is the dining room, with garden access. Downstairs the basement, with its electric feature fire and clever lighting design, makes the perfect cosy sitting room. There is also storage under the stairs.
The first floor houses two large double bedrooms, both of which have en suite shower rooms. The second floor is entirely given over to the expansive master suite, which has both a dressing room and bathroom with bath and shower. In the bedroom itself is an original cast iron fireback, which acts as a purely ornamental feature.
Priced at £495,000.
