Chamber End Fold, Grassington, Skipton BD23


Guide price

  • Bedrooms: 3
Dated 1685 2,4 and 6 Chamber Fold were possibly divided into separate cottages in the late18th Century to accommodate mining families when the Duke of Devonshire began to develop the lead mines on Yarnbury. Being visible from Main Street, No. 2 was of more importance and the alterations then included raising the roof and resetting a 17th Century window to light the added storey. Nos. 4 and 6 remained more humble buildings, being re-fenestrated in the mid 19 Century, a period of rapid expansion in the lead industry.

Having remained in the same family for many years, and now requiring a full restoration, the property offers the opportunity to create a prominent home in this sought after village.The property is Grade II listed and any works will require the relevant planning permissions. Offering 850 square feet of internal living space over 3 floors.

To the ground floor, one large open plan room with beams and 2 windows, and featuring an iron range. We see this room as an open plan living-dining-kitchen. There is a keeping cellar off the kitchen area with window and original stone keeping shelves. Stairs rise to the first floor with 2 bedrooms with fine views down Main Street, and a bathroom. To the second floor, a large open plan room with king trusses and a feature mullioned window again offering fine views, which we see as a large master en suite bedroom, or 2 smaller bedrooms.

To the outside a small fore-garden and a coal house.

The property is without doubt going to have some issues with timber rot / infestation, perhaps damp and structural repairs, however all rectifiable.

Mains drainage, electric and water are connected.
