The property is situated on the eastern fringes of the popular village of Steeton with amenities which include two parks, a football and cricket pitch, a local Co-op food store, three pubs and a primary school. The village is also close to Airedale General Hospital and has a train station with regular direct services to Skipton, Bradford and Leeds. There is good secondary schooling at South Craven School in nearby Cross Hills and highly regarded grammar schools in the market town of Skipton. The vibrant town of Keighley is about 2.5 miles to the south east providing all the amenities and services one would expect from a town of this size.
The origins of Stiverton House are believed to date from circa 1860 with later additions towards the end of the century and the early 1900s. Although the current residence is of significant stature and attractive in appearance, it is suffering from a number of structural failings resulting from historic alterations and extensions onto insufficient foundations which seemingly did not properly take into account the ground conditions.
The nature and severity of the structural issues affecting the existing house make its construction unviable, hence the brave proposal to start again by replacing Stiverton House with a new build single residence of similar scale providing prospective purchasers with a rare and exciting opportunity.
As well as the plot on which the existing house stands, the property being sold also includes the adjacent original walled kitchen garden and a paddock extending to the south, with the site as a whole extending to approximately 0.70 acres.
