“Harrison Robinson, please find us the most perfect, three-bedroom cottage in central Addingham with use of a private, south facing garden”… Well, please form an orderly queue - here it is!!! This is a rare opportunity to purchase a most charming, three double-bedroom, Grade II listed, semi-detached property close to the centre of Addingham with its many amenities and only a short hop to the newly opened Fleece and local primary school. This property is totally unique and exudes a wonderful charm of its own being an eclectic mix of the traditional and contemporary, creating the ideal home for a modern family. Set back from the road, a lane leads up to a single garage and provides off-street parking for two cars (so rare on the Main Street). To the front of the double fronted property is a charming garden laid mainly to lawn with a Yorkshire stone path and patio area and a solid, timber painted front door creating a welcoming entrance. Once inside your eyes are immediately drawn into the spacious dining hall with stripped pine flooring and original, stone fire surround. The cottage style kitchen is fitted with hand painted units and has a gas fired AGA stove and a back door gives access to a useful outhouse and steps up to the rear, grassed area. An inner hallway with stairs up to the first floor leads to the charming sitting room with a feature fireplace with a carved stone surround housing a coal effect, gas fire. Light floods in through the window to the front. A useful utility room with a Yorkshire stone flagged floor, sink unit and plumbing for a washing machine is the ideal spot to hang up coats and leave muddy boots to dry after a long walk in the beautiful, surrounding countryside. Stairs lead down to a tanked cellar with two charming, original, heavy beams and a window to the front affords natural light. Stairs with a window to the half landing lead up to the first floor where one finds two good sized, double bedrooms to the front and a further double to the rear with a south facing window affording views over the open fields, all served by a contemporary, house bathroom. To the rear of the property, gated steps lead down to a flagged area leading to the rear door where one finds a useful outhouse with light, power and plumbing for a washing machine. To the rear of the property is a raised area of level, (that the property has access to), south facing lawn with fields beyond with frolicking lambs. This leads to a private, walled area - ideal for relaxing or al fresco entertaining.

Steeped in history, Addingham is an attractive and popular Dales Village that lies to the west of Ilkley on the banks of the River Wharfe, surrounded by beautiful open countryside (as highlighted by the recent Tour De France and Tour De Yorkshire coverage). The village offers a useful range of shops (including a new Co-op store), a post office and doctor’s surgery, various excellent inns and eateries, including the long-awaited re-opening of the Fleece Inn, and its own well regarded primary school. Local bus services to surrounding towns are available from the village Main Street, whereas the railway station in Ilkley, just over three miles away provides a regular commuter service to Leeds and Bradford city centres (around 35 minutes commute), providing regular connections to London Kings Cross. Leeds Bradford International Airport is just over 15 miles away with national and international services.
