Constructed from new in 1992, Dean Head has much to offer, with well-proportioned living space successfully blending character features with a comprehensive modern specification. There are a pair of well-proportioned principal reception rooms along with a separate study, although the centerpiece of family life is surely to be the stunning living kitchen which provides seating, dining and preparation areas along with a broad inventory of integrated appliances.
A large basement provides excellent entertaining and hobby space along with additional storage, whilst to the first floor there are six bedrooms in all - three of which have contemporary and stylish en-suite facilities. By far the majority of the rooms enjoy stunning views either across Wharfedale to the south or towards the countryside and moors to the north - the latter offering an enviable amenity for those who enjoy mountain biking, rugged walks or hacking out.
