Bishop Garth

Bishop Garth is a charming semi-detached cottage in this lovely village tucked away in the Yorkshire Dales. It occupies a very pleasant position with a large walled garden which backs south with many interesting plants. The property is in need of some modernisation but offers the opportunity for somebody to put their own stamp on this lovely home. The accommodation comprises good sized living/dining room, breakfast kitchen, utility/larder, three bedrooms with an en-suite bathroom to the principal suite and a house shower/WC. The main two bedrooms are interconnected with an opening and step-change in the floor but this could easily be separated if desired, alternatively, this would make a lovely dressing room or nursery. The third bedroom is currently used as a study and would make a pleasant single bedroom.

Ground Floor Accommodation

The entrance porch provides access to the larder/utility and the breakfast kitchen. The larder is a really useful space with quarry tiled floor, dual aspect and built-in wall and floor cupboards. The breakfast kitchen is a light and airy room which has access to a small conservatory and the main living room. The ceiling has exposed painted beams and fitted units with wall and floor cupboards, incorporating inset one and a half drainer sink unit, integrated fridge and a free standing cooker.

The principal bedroom directly adjoins the second bedroom which could be separated if desired. The second bedroom is a single bedroom with built-in cupboards and lovely views over the gardens.
