The Quaker House, Scale House Woodlands, Rylstone, BD23
The Quaker House is an extensive five bedroom grade II listed character family home set in this rural location, whilst still being within easy driving distance of both Grassington and Skipton. The property benefits from garaging, large gardens and spacious living accommodation. Early inspection is necessary to fully appreciate the property on offer.
The Quaker House forms part of an exclusive development of five properties, formerly the stables and coach house for Scale House. A standout feature of this lovely home is its idyllic rural setting. The house is only a couple of miles from both Grassington and Skipton, both of which have abundant local amenities, but sits in a delightful woodland setting, part of which is owned and managed by the residents.
The accommodation comprises a front entrance door into a large stone entrance porch providing access to the ground floor living accommodation. There is access to a spacious ground floor guest bedroom with an en-suite bathroom fitted with dual flush w.c, shower cubical and wash basin. To the front elevation is a handsomely proportioned living room with a feature fire place having a log burning stove. From the sitting room there is access to a dining hall which could also be used a separate reception room. The dining hall leads through an inner hallway incorporating a downstairs cloakroom and stairs to the first floor into a spacious family room with feature wooden beams and space for an eight seater family dining table. The utility room is just off the dining room and has a ceramic sink unit and houses the Worcester boiler and has plumbing for a washer / dryer. The kitchen is superbly appointed with granite worktops, ceramic sink, integral 'Bosch' dishwasher, an LPG ‘Esse’ oven, fitted base units and inbuilt fridge/ freezer. From the kitchen there is also access to the courtyard and patio.
To the first floor there are four bedrooms, two of which are good sized single bedrooms and two of which are spacious double bedrooms, the master bedroom having a beautifully appointed en-suite comprising a three piece suite with w/c, claw foot bath with shower over and bespoke free standing twin washbasin stand. From the first floor landing there is also access to a family bathroom with a four piece suite comprising pull chain w/c, claw foot bath, wash basin and a shower cubicle.
Externally the property is approached from a private driveway leading to a parking area with space for up to three vehicles and a single garage. On the side of the single garage there is also an attached building which could be used as an outside office. There is also a large lawned south west facing garden to the front of the house with a mature shrub and tree border and a patio area perfect for sitting out in the summer.
