This is a very rare opportunity to be able to ensure loved ones are safe and sound whilst everyone retains their own space and independence. The properties are approached over a Yorkshire stone, cobbled courtyard affording parking for several cars. The main house ‘Oaklands Cottage’ has a large double garage underneath and is accessed by either a lower ground hallway or steps up the side of the property into the kitchen, which has traditional, bespoke, hand painted units with granite work surfaces over and in pride of place is a large, stainless steel range with matching splashback and hood. With terracotta tiling to the floor, a log burning stove creates a wonderful atmosphere during the winter months with ample space for a dining table. A spacious dining hall with Velux roof lights and French doors opening out onto the patio is a great place to entertain in the summer months and has the feeling of a hunting lodge. A most attractive, separate sitting room with feature, ornate fireplace and cornicing is a great addition to the reception rooms. To the half landing is a most spacious master bedroom benefiting from a cavernous range of fitted wardrobes and en-suite shower room. A house bathroom and laundry room complete this floor. To the next floor two further large double bedrooms and a single bedroom are served by a luxurious, ultra-modern, walk-in shower room fully tiled with marble. Outside the private, tiered garden area to the rear is ideal for al fresco entertaining with friends and family. The property enjoys wonderful, long distance views over the valley.
‘Grumpy Cottage’ affords detached, private, single storey accommodation, again with a garage and storage below and benefiting from a private garden area away from the main house. Internally, a porch opens into a spacious sitting room with separate large galley kitchen off. Two good sized, double bedrooms are served by a house bathroom.
An early viewing is highly recommended to fully appreciate the overall accommodation on the rare opportunity presented here.
