Gib Field, Ben Rhydding Drive, Ilkley, LS29
A unique and exciting opportunity to acquire this traditional, Grade II Listed farmhouse with attached barn set within good sized gardens with approximately 4.56 acres (1.84 ha) of paddock and land positioned in this stunning rural setting with fantastic, far reaching views across the Wharfe Valley and beyond, yet conveniently located only a short drive away from Ben Rhydding with its many amenities and train station.
Set within this beautiful rural setting is this traditional, Grade II Listed, three bedroom, three reception room farmhouse that is now in need of considerable updating. It has a most attractive attached barn, also Grade II Listed, which subject to any consents could considerably increase the potential living accommodation on offer. The accommodation in brief includes an entrance hall, bathroom with separate wc, sitting room, dining room and kitchen. To the first floor are three bedrooms. Also accessed from the entrance hall is a lounge with shower room off and stairs leading to a home office. This part of the property could provide annex style accommodation if required. This attractive property sits within its own gardens looking over the attached 4.56 acres (1.84 ha) of paddocks with views extending over the golf course, Ben Rhydding and beyond. Please note there is a public footpath that runs up the driveway before it exits to the side of the barn in a westerly direction.
Ben Rhydding Drive is a highly regarded private road which leads out from the centre of Ben Rhydding into the green belt countryside beyond. The centre of Ben Rhydding with its useful range of local shops, post office, and the Wheatley Inn is approximately 1 mile away as is Ben Rhydding Station, from where there are regular commuter rail services to Leeds/Bradford city centres and Ilkley. Ben Rhydding has its own primary school, sports and golf club and there are some splendid walks to be enjoyed through the nearby countryside. Ilkley town centre with its wider range of shops, supermarkets, restaurants, cafes and general amenities is close by. Indeed, Ben Rhydding and Ilkley are considered to be ideal locations in the Wharfe Valley countryside for commuters to many major West and North Yorkshire business centres, whilst Leeds/Bradford International Airport is only circa 10 miles distant.
Travelling along Bolling Road into the centre of Ben Rhydding from Ilkley, continue past the parade of shops and then as the road turns round to the left onto Wheatley Lane bear right across the road and proceed through the stone gate posts immediately before Ben Rhydding Methodist church. Continue up Ben Rhydding Drive and at the Audley Development gates bear right following the road round and then bear right again and follow the lane up to the top. The access lane to Gib Field will then be found straight ahead, marked by a sign, 'Gib Field Farm' and by Dacre, Son & Hartley's For Sale board.
