  • Bedrooms: 5
This is a unique and versatile property with options to keep number 16 as a holiday let or perhaps combine resources with a dependant relative and have a house each! Currently with no internal link, there is also great potential to provide an extension linking the two houses together, to make a large 3000+ square foot home.

Having been in the current family since 1967, this is the first time to market in over 50 years. Presented in good order and well maintained, and perhaps now requiring some updating.

Number 14 has 2 bedrooms, a house bathroom, kitchen, spacious living room, separate dining-conservatory, cloakroom, pantry and a large single garage and parking. The living and dining rooms overlooking and opening onto the splendid gardens, and the bedrooms also enjoying this outlook.

Number 16 (Lower Heugh Cottage) has 3 bedrooms, a bathroom, cloakroom, kitchen, good sized living room, a separate dining room and a single garage and parking. Again the principal rooms overlook and open onto the gardens.

Both properties’ benefit from the superbly landscaped south facing gardens amounting to circa 1 acre. These striking gardens have been developed over the last 20 years or so into a Kaiyushiki (Japanese Stroll Garden), with Yohaku (manicured lawns) and Shakkei (borrowed landscape scenes) reflecting crags, valleys, steams, fields, local history and geology; and with the main emphasis being Japanese planting including Conifers, Acers, bamboo, grasses and heathers.

The properties are on separate meters / utility services and Council Tax, and are connected to mains gas, water and public sewers.

Embsay with Eastby is immediately outside The Yorkshire Dales National Park boundary, and is situated below the well-known Embsay & Eastby Crags at the foot of Black Park. There is a sailing club on the reservoir in Embsay and fishing by licence. Embsay with Eastby has a great local community with an excellent Primary School, Church and Village Hall.

The village has a cricket team which competes in the Craven League and also has a moderately successful football team. Embsay also boasts two pleasant public houses that serve meals, and a village shop selling groceries and newspapers. Nearby is the market town of Skipton with its abundance of shops, restaurants, pubs and supermarkets. Eastby is within the catchment area for Ermysted’s Grammar School and Skipton Girls’ High, along with Craven College and its extensive portfolio of courses.
