The picturesque village of Grassington provides a good range of amenities including inns, restaurants, shops and a doctor's surgery. There are two excellent primary schools and secondary schooling at Upper Wharfedale School in nearby Threshfield, which is also home to Wharfedale Rugby Club. Just to the north is Long Ashes Holiday Park with a well equipped leisure centre and swimming pool.
Skipton provides a more comprehensive range of amenities including a leisure centre with swimming pool, a golf course, both primary and secondary schooling, supermarkets, shops, bars and restaurants and a market on the cobbled High Street. Skipton has good transport links with regular direct train services to Leeds and Bradford.
The plot, which extends to approximately 160 square metres, is situated on the northerly fringes of the sought after Dales village of Grassington off Garrs End Lane, a short walk from the village centre, and enjoys stunning uninterrupted views to the west over open countryside.
Full planning permission for a sympathetic and stylish scheme, prepared by Carleton-based architect John Wharton, proposing the construction of a single two bedroom cottage was granted by the Yorkshire Dales National Park Authority - Decision No.: C/33/506 dated 20 September 2016.
The planning permission is subject to a Section 106 'Deed of Agreement' restricting the use of the dwelling to a main or principal residence by a person already living or working within the National Park. A copy of the planning documents together with the Section 106 Deed of Agreement containing the full details of the criteria of a qualifying person are available in electronic form from the agents on request.
The Yorkshire Dales National Park Authority have confirmed that works undertaken on site constitute a material commencement of the approved development and as such planning permission C/33/506 is extant.
The approved scheme provides accommodation over two floors with the living room and entrance hall being full height to the roof.
Ground Floor: Entrance hallway, open plan kitchen/living room, W.C., bedroom 2
First Floor: Landing area, bathroom, bedroom 1
Total approximate gross internal floor area (excluding voids) 61.25 square metres (660 square feet)
Private parking space to the front and provision for a terraced garden to the rear.
There is an overhead mains electricity cable crossing the site with a pole on the south west corner of the plot. We understand there is mains water available. We understand that mains gas is within Garrs End Lane. Drainage is proposed to a package treatment plant to be installed within the site and discharge to soakaway.
From Skipton head north on Grassington Road (B6265) and continue through Rylstone and Cracoe to Threshfield, turning right to Grassington (B6265). Continue through Threshfield over the river to Grassington turning left on the right hand bend onto Wood Lane which becomes Grass Wood Lane. After about 500 metres turn right onto Bull Ing Lane and continue for about 150 metres bearing right onto Garrs End Lane where the plot can be found after about 50 metres on the left. A for sale sign has been erected.
