A MAGNIFICENT six-bedroom home surrounded by majestic countryside in Elslack, near Skipton, is for sale for £1.4million.

Pickhill Cottage offers extensive living accommodation along with a superb garden and paddock extending to around 0.75 acres, with the whole plot covering about 1.5 acres.

Mark Kane, senior associate and branch manager at Dacre, Son & Hartley’s Skipton office, said: “Pickhill Cottage is set in the style of a traditional Yorkshire longhouse, which were traditionally built to accommodate both a family and their cattle under one roof. It’s a superb, sprawling family home that’s finished to an exceptional standard, as well as being full of character features, so it will be popular with buyers.”

All the principal ground floor rooms are accessed from the main inner hallway. These include the kitchen diner which offers a selection of modern units, a Quooker tap, integrated Fisher and Paykel ovens, hob and griddle, a pair of full-size John Lewis fridge freezers with wine fridge and a Corian central island unit with hob and extractor above. The kitchen has mood lighting throughout and bi-folding doors leading out to a formal patio and decked area.

There’s also a split level formal living room with feature beams, a wood burning stove set into a stone fireplace, windows to three sides and French doors out to the terrace. In addition, the property also has a further sitting room, snug with wood burning stove, a dining room, study, utility room and WC.

The contemporary oak staircase, complete with glass panels, leads to the first-floor landing which runs the whole length of the house, meaning all six bedrooms overlook the garden.

The master bedroom has a walk-in wardrobe and a Villeroy and Boch en-suite with a roll top bath. There’s also a Juliet balcony offering views over the garden, paddock and neighbouring hills. There are five further well-proportioned bedrooms, two of which are ensuite, as well as a separate shower room.

Mark added: “Externally, the property is just as impressive. Access is through electric gates to a tarmac driveway providing ample parking and leading to a stone built triple garage with a car wash area to the side. There is also a useful gym or home office space above the garage that’s accessed via a separate external staircase. In the gardens there is a big stone terrace, decked area and stairs leading down to a large lawned area, timber stables and summerhouse."

The property is for sale with a guide price of £1.4million. For more details and to arrange a viewing contact Dacre, Son & Hartley’s Skipton office on 01756 701010 or visit www.dacres.co.uk
