A FAMILY home in Grassington with far reaching views across Upper Wharfedale is on the market for a cool £1.6 million.

Described as one of Grassington's 'stand-out country homes', Hawkwind has five bedrooms and grounds of 1.6 acres.

The extensively renovated house, which was built in the late 1990s, features a modern dining kitchen, and three reception rooms off an entrance hall. The ground floor also includes a coat room, utility room and cloakroom.

The five bedrooms include four doubles, two of which have ensuite facilities. There is also a playroom and large games room, running across the full width of the triple garage block.

Mark Kane, senior associate and branch manager at Dacre, Son and Hartley’s Skipton office, which is selling the property, said: “At more than 4,300 sq ft, Hawkwind is a substantial property that has benefitted from a major renovation in order to create a very special family home. It also offers a great level of flexibility as the playroom and games room have the potential to be adapted into further living accommodation, subject to relevant planning consents.

“Outside the property enjoys a magnificent outlook with lovely south facing gardens and panoramic views. Beyond the gardens, and extending to around 25 acres, is an area of grass and woodland, jointly owned by the four properties that make up the Grassington Park Estate, which is an ideal space for residents to enjoy and further enhances the property’s tranquil surroundings.

“Hawkwind was built in the late 1990s, so was already modern, but in recent years it has been meticulously updated and now includes a 2,500 litre bunded oil tank and Grant Vortex boiler, solar PV panels, Navitas solar thermal hot water system, LG energy storage battery and weather compensation control system. It also has a new kitchen, three new bathrooms with underfloor heating, and the windows, doors and roof have all been replaced.

“As a result, it will appeal to anyone looking for a magnificent family home in the Yorkshire Dales National Park that has the added benefit of being within easy reach of all Grassington’s amenities including shops, pubs, cafes, restaurants, sports clubs and schools.”
