A magnificent six-bedroom detached home surrounded by majestic countryside in the Craven village of Elslack, just four miles from Skipton, is now on our website.
Pickhill Cottage offers extensive living accommodation along with a superb garden and paddock extending to approximately 0.75 acres, with the whole plot covering about 1.5 acres.
Mark Kane, senior associate and branch manager at our Skipton office, said: “Pickhill Cottage is set in the style of a traditional Yorkshire longhouse, which were traditionally built to accommodate both a family and their cattle under one roof. It’s a superb, sprawling family home that’s finished to an exceptional standard, as well as being full of character features, so it will be popular with buyers.”
All the principal ground floor rooms are accessed from the main inner hallway. These include the impressive kitchen diner which offers a selection of modern units, a Quooker tap, integrated Fisher & Paykel ovens, hob and griddle, a pair of full-size John Lewis fridge freezers with wine fridge and a Corian central island unit with hob and extractor above. The kitchen has mood lighting throughout and fabulous bi-folding doors leading out to a formal patio and decked area.
There’s also a grand split level formal living room with feature beams, a wood burning stove set into a stone fireplace, windows to three sides and French doors out to the terrace. In addition, the property also boasts a further sitting room, snug with wood burning stove, a dining room, study, utility room and WC.
The contemporary oak staircase, complete with glass panels, leads to the first-floor landing which runs the whole length of the house, meaning all six bedrooms overlook the garden. The master bedroom has a walk-in wardrobe and a Villeroy and Boch en-suite with a roll top bath. There’s also a Juliet balcony offering views over the garden, paddock and neighbouring hills. There are five further well-proportioned bedrooms, two of which are ensuite, as well as a separate shower room.
Mark added: “Externally, the property is just as impressive. Access is through electric gates to a tarmac driveway providing ample parking and leading to a stone built triple garage with a car wash area to the side. There is also a useful gym or home office space above the garage that’s accessed via a separate external staircase. In the gardens there is a big stone terrace, decked area and stairs leading down to a large lawned area, timber stables and summerhouse.“Elslack is a very popular rural village that has the added benefit of being just minutes away from the A59 and less than 10 minutes from Skipton town centre. The Tempest Arms is a well renowned local pub and the village also offers easy access to lots of good schools, which all makes it a sought after place to live.”
