Market Place, Middleham, Leyburn, DL8
This handsome early 18th century period house is an impressive Grade II Listed property extending to over 2,990 sqft with very spacious and versatile space arranged over three floors with six en-suite bedrooms in total including a separate self-contained apartment, offering scope for a variety of uses, attractively positioned overlooking the market place.
An imposing period property at the end of a row of substantial houses in a delightful setting, this Grade II Listed property has been sympathetically modernised and offers very spacious proportions, formerly a large private home and later the Castle Hotel. This freehold property therefore represents an excellent family home which is equally valuable as a business opportunity in a thriving town. Original features have been retained throughout with sash windows and exposed beams to the high ceilings, together with the modern convenience of electric central heating with two Eco boilers and there is three-phase electricity supply.
Barbican House is prominently positioned at the heart of Middleham, an attractive town renowned for its racehorse training yards, medieval castle and location close to the Yorkshire Dales. Popular with tourists and equally as appealing for rural living, this location is convenient for nearby amenities and for links to the surrounding areas. There are four public houses and independent shops in the town whilst the nearby attractive town of Leyburn is well-served by shops, services, public houses and restaurants. There are schools nearby for both primary and secondary ages along with private schools at Newton-le-Willows, Barnard Castle and Queen Marys, plus there are leisure facilities including sports clubs and a swimming pool within easy reach. The Yorkshire Dales and Moors are close-by and some of the region's most breathtaking scenery is accessible along with historic parks and gardens. The cathedral city of Ripon, Masham and market town of Northallerton offer more extensive amenities along with links to surrounding towns and cities. The region's motorway network and business centres are also within easy reach for the commuter including access to the A1 via Bedale and its new by-pass.
Proceed out of Leyburn on the A684 towards Bedale and turn right onto the A6108 towards Masham and Ripon. On entering Middleham continue up Kirkgate to the market place, turn right and the property can be found on the left hand side.
