A detached Victorian family home, completely & sympathetically renovated with a range of outbuildings overlooking the village green in the Yorkshire Dales National Park.

Goose Bank

Goose Bank is a handsome, double fronted, detached Victorian home overlooking the smallest, but most delightful village green in The Dales. It has been completely and sympathetically

renovated to retain and enhance the period features. It has a super range of outbuildings, which include a restored two storey barn attached to the main house comprising workshop with store above, and a detached two storey barn extending to around 880 square feet, all set around a courtyard garden. The detached barn is excellent in its own right, but could be an

opportunity for conversion to a small annex/cottage subject to the necessary consents. This is a spacious and comfortable family home, excellent for entertaining, and also has superfast

broadband making home working a viable option.


West Scrafton is in the Yorkshire Dales National Park. It is a really interesting village with well documented history both in terms of properties and their occupants, and the countryside

around it. It has a strong community with a high proportion of owner occupiers. People live, work and play here, and there is plenty of walking and cycling from the door.

Ground Floor Accommodation

Goose Bank is a traditional four-square property with a central main reception hall with the original spindle staircase and newel post leading to the first floor. The doors are original with panelled surrounds and provide access to the living room, dining kitchen and rear hall. The living room is cosy with a shallow bay window and original panelling and shutters overlooking the village green. The focal point to this room is a feature fire surround with log burner. The dining kitchen is triple aspect with a shallow bay window with original panelling and shutters to the front elevation. The flooring here is re-claimed oak Parquet flooring which continues through to the rear hall and gives a lovely soft feel to this room. The dining area has an exposed stone chimney breast with log burner and the kitchen area is fitted with a range of base cupboards with grey frontage and wooden work surfaces incorporating a dishwasher and fridge.

There is a matching island unit which has a stainless steel surface and breakfast bar area. The kitchen area opens directly to the rear hall which has an under stairs cupboard, door back to the reception hall and door to the utility room and shower/WC. The utility room is fitted with matching units to the kitchen and features a pull out tap over a Belfast sink, off which there

is a shower/WC. The boot room has a quarry tile floor and a stable door leading to the rear courtyard garden.

First Floor Accommodation

The galleried first floor landing has a window to the front elevation and plenty of space for a study/reading area with a very pleasant outlook over the village green. From here there is access to four double bedrooms and the house bathroom/WC. All the doors are original panelled doors with panelled surrounds. All four bedrooms have stripped floorboards, the two principal bedrooms overlook the village green, both of which have attractive period cast iron fireplaces. The two rear bedrooms enjoy lovely views over the countryside. The house bathroom/WC has underfloor heating and is fitted in a white suite with a roll top bath with standpipe mixer taps and hand shower attachment. There is a large walk-in shower in white with glass screen and rain shower head, pedestal wash hand basin and low level WC.


Goose Bank is set overlooking the village green and has a pedestrian entrance with stone flags to the forecourt, this has a stone pillared entrance with decorative wrought iron balustrades and is gravelled with space for a table and chairs. The property sits in a walled plot with the rear having vehicular access via a substantial farm style gate. The courtyard here is a mixture of cobbles and stone flags. There is a patio seating area immediately outside the stable door with stone bench seating at its perimeter. The outbuildings are set around a lower courtyard which is a mixture of stone flags, gravelling and very neat gabion walling features. From here there is access to the adjoining workshop, the detached barn and what was the pigsty which now houses the oil tank with a small courtyard in front. A wooden gate opens to a snicket.


The two storey barn which is attached to the main house has a superb ground floor workshop fully equipped with heating, power, lighting and double glazed windows. An external stone

staircase provides access to the first floor which is used as a really useful store. The detached barn on the other side of the courtyard comprises a carthouse, stable block and first floor rooms

which are accessed via an external stone staircase. All the services have been installed in such a way that connection could be achieved without disruption of the cobbled and flagged courtyard which the buildings sit around.
