A versatile stone built period barn, with inviting garden, garaging and picturesque views.
Hawkswick Cote Cottage is one of a small collection of stone built character properties which stand at the end of a short driveway, centering around a large courtyard with ample parking and corresponding garaging around the perimeter.
Believed to date from the early 1800's, this traditional Dales barn has been skillfully converted to form a well-proportioned family home, receiving a sizeable two storey extension around twenty years ago which has significantly increased the accommodation whilst creating a versatile three bedroom self contained annexe in the process.
With a total of seven bedrooms and numerous living spaces, this is a large property with plenty of character but with a contemporary twist. The house has the benefit of a modern central heating system throughout and underfloor heating in the lobby, the timber sash windows are all double glazed, and the kitchen is fully equipped with a full suite of appliances, topped off with a four oven Aga. Each of the rooms are of near perfect proportion, all thoughtfully redecorated with numerous character features, including original beams, fireplaces and a striking oak staircase in the double height reception hall.
The property is approached via a meandering driveway which serves a total of four properties which would have originally made up a substantial farmstead. Three of the properties stand around a central courtyard, predominantly owned by Hawkswick Cote Cottage, providing ample parking and turning space for numerous guests. The property also benefits from a separate garage, car port to one side and a parking bay at the far end of the house. The inviting cottage garden lies to the rear (east) of the house, extending the full length of the building, bound by a traditional drystone wall. laid predominantly to lawn with a mix of gravel and stone flagged pathways flanked by well stocked borders.
