One of Ripon’s finest period properties that is located on the sought-after South Crescent, within easy walking distance of the city centre, is for sale and is already attracting high levels of interest from investors and developers.
Skell Lodge has a guide price of £1.25 million. The substantial residence, which covers more than 8,500 sq ft in total, previously operated as a care home, with more than 20 bedrooms.
The main building extends to 6,800 sq ft, which excludes its large basement and roof voids, and a former coach house has been converted into three, one bedroom apartments for the over 55s. In addition, there are gardens, a driveway, double garage and parking area.
Dan Rice, from Dacre, Son & Hartley’s Ripon office, said: “Skell Lodge offers clear potential to be transformed into a standout apartment scheme, subject to planning permissions. The buildings have been well-maintained and are full of charm and character, which a creative developer could do something very special with.
“In addition, the property has the added benefit of being in one of Ripon’s most popular and sought-after tree-lined streets, less than half a mile from Ripon Cathedral, and within a 10-minute drive of both the A1M and Fountains Abbey in The Nidderdale Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. As a result, it’s a very rare opportunity that will attract high levels of interest.”
