The Old Beet House, Askrigg

Under Offer
Guide Price £450,000

The Old Beet House is a beautiful detached property of traditional stone construction. It has many character features throughout including stone flagged floors, beams and original stone work. The property gets its name from its former use as a Sugar Beet store and it was converted in 1986.

The property is entered via a welcoming entrance hall with stone flagged floor and a large cloak cupboard which leads through into a fantastic kitchen diner. This room features a handmade fitted kitchen with butler sink, plumbing for a dishwasher, double oven and gas hob, pantry cupboard and dual aspect windows. There is ample space for a dining table and this makes a great room for entertaining. Leading on from this room is a cosy sitting room with an inglenook fireplace, arch window to the front and window overlooking the garden.

Also on the ground floor is a utility room with separate WC which also features under-floor heating and is plumbed for a washing machine and a conservatory which provides excellent views of the gardens and has double doors leading out onto a patio. There is also a useful workshop which is accessed internally or externally and offers ample workspace or could be used as storage.

To the first floor are three excellent double bedrooms. The principle bedroom features a vaulted ceiling with exposed beams, fitted wardrobes and a quality ensuite with double shower cubicle and freestanding Victorian roll top bath. One of these bedrooms would also make a fantastic office as it already features a number of extra sockets and broadband inlets which may suit a person who wishes to work from home.

To the second floor is a further double bedroom with exposed beams and eaves storage.

Externally the property is complemented by a large walled garden which is very private. This features patio areas, a range of pretty flowers and shrubs as well as a generous lawn and will very much appeal to a keen gardener. There is also a wooden shed and a gate leading back to the front of the property where there is parking for 2 cars.

The Old Beet House would make a fantastic family home or second home in the Yorkshire Dales.
