The property is situated off Moorber Lane approximately 1 mile to the south west of Coniston Cold with the Coniston Country Estate Hotel, Spa and Health Club a short distance on the A65. The village of Gargrave lies 3 miles to the east with a useful range of services including a primary school, pub, church and co-op store. The railway station provides regular services to Skipton, Leeds and Bradford and a daily service to London Kings Cross. The popular market town of Skipton to the south east offers a more comprehensive range of services including highly regarded secondary schooling at Skipton Girls High and Ermysteds Grammar.
This substantial range of modern farm buildings was formerly part of the Stainton Cotes Estate, now an exclusive residential hamlet. The buildings are set nicely back from Moorber Lane on a private drive which provides access to two other private dwellings beyond.
The main buildings stand in approximately 0.70 acres comprising a generous yard area extending to the front and rear with two points of access from the private lane. Within the rear yard is a further useful detached building. Together with the buildings and yard there is an additional parcel of land extending to approximately 1.55 acres, providing security and control over the immediate surroundings and outlook.
Prior Approval Notification was given by Craven District Council allowing the change of use of the buildings to residential use. Application Number 2020/21790/AGRRES dated 14 August 2020. An electronic copy of the planning documents is available on request from the selling agents. There will be a charge for hard copies.
The approved scheme prepared by the planning and development team at David Hill LLP establishes the principal for converting the buildings to an imposing contemporary style four bedroom residence. With the principal of change of use now established there is scope to submit an amended scheme and design that better reflects the individual.
The approved design provides accommodation over the ground floor only comprising;
Entrance into a large living room (10.50m x 8.50m) with separate cloakroom and utility room. A central hall gives access to an open plan kitchen/dining/lounge (17.50m x 6.75m) fully glazed to the north and east elevations. To the other side of the hall are four double bedrooms each with provision for an en suite.
Approximate Gross Internal Ground Floor Area 422 metres squared (4550 sq ft)
We understand that mains 3 phase electricity and a private borehole water supply are connected on site. Drainage will be to a new package treatment plant to be installed by the purchasers.
