Guide price £1,495,000

Beautifully positioned on the edge of Burley Moor, amidst grounds of around 3.9 Ha (9.61 Acres), this incredibly versatile home offers up to five-bedroom accommodation, potential for an annex, extensive garaging and storage as well as beautiful views across mid Wharfedale and towards the city of York on the horizon.

Welcoming Reception Hall; L-shaped Dining Kitchen with AGA, Dining Area and Snug; stunning triple aspect Family Room with French doors to two sides; Utility. Further Living Room within the potential annexe area with an adjoining Kitchen. Five good sized Bedrooms including a stunning principal suite with Juliet balcony offering aspects over the land to the South; House Bathroom, Shower Room and Cloaks. Outside - Cragg House has the advantage of extensive storage including the triple bay open carport and a further double garage block with useful mezzanine storage level. Immediate gardens, gravel parking and grounds including grass and moorland. The whole extending to around 9.6 Acres (3.9Ha).

Cragg House enjoys a beautiful and accessible location on the edge of Burley Moor, just a couple of miles or so distant from the central amenities of nearby Ilkley and the village of Burley in Wharfedale - whilst enjoying spectacular views across Wharfedale towards the moors and in the direction of the city of York beyond.

Presented to an impressively high standard, the accommodation enjoys a high degree of flexibility and could readily suit the needs of a family who will enjoy the generous bedroom provision and broad flowing reception space, or alternatively could appeal to those who require accommodation for a dependent relative through the utilisation of a more independent area to the eastern side of the house which includes a living room, well-appointed kitchen, bedroom and adjacent stylish shower room.

The heart of the home will undoubtedly be the well-appointed living kitchen - a large L-shaped room with preparation, dining and snug areas, with a twin oven AGA adding to the sensation of warmth. Adjacent is a stunning principal reception room, almost 30 ft in length, with triple aspects over the grounds, as well as French doors leading to the exterior. The principal bedroom also offers sumptuous space - formerly a living room, it is now a large private retreat with adjacent cloaks facilities and French doors opening onto a Juliet style balcony which provides aspects onto the property's grounds to the south.

Externally, Cragg House has much to offer, with a triple bay open carport having an adjacent implement store, whilst there is also an oversized double garage block offering extensive storage, with a very useful mezzanine level over. The grounds themselves combine a mixture of gardens, partly lawned; extensive stone paving; vegetable area with greenhouse, and then the land sweeps around the property to the West and South and comprises a mix of grassland paddocks and moorland. All benefiting from those stunning and breathtaking views!

A short drive over the moor, past the famous Cow and Calf, leads to the Victorian spa town of Ilkley - recently crowned the best place to live in the UK by The Sunday Times. The former Victorian spa town provides a very desirable and vibrant living environment with a broad range of ''high street' and local stores rubbing shoulders with an excellent choice of restaurants, cafes and wine bars. The town offers comprehensive sporting amenities, along with a highly regarded schooling system - although private schools for children of all ages are available within comfortable daily travelling distance. Both nearby Burley in Wharfedale and Ilkley have ''Metro' railway stations from where there are frequent services throughout the day into the cities of Leeds and Bradford, with regular onwards connection from the former to London King's Cross. Leeds Bradford International Airport is just some 8 miles distant.

Agent's Notes

Mains electricity is installed. Private borehole water and septic tank drainage. An air source heat pump provides heating to the principal accommodation (underfloor to bedroom one, the bathroom and living room), whilst the eastern end of the house has a LPG fired heating and hot water boiler.

From the centre of town proceed past the railway station and the Town Hall and bear right at the mini roundabout onto Cowpasture Road. Follow the road up the hill passing The Cow and Calf pub on the left-hand side. The road starts to descend and approximately three quarters of a mile beyond the pub Cragg House will be seen to the right hand side.
