    About this property

    • Dating back to the early 17th century, this charming Grade II listed stone built house sits in around half an acre of beautiful mature gardens, overlooking the village green to the front and open countryside to the rear. Formerly the village school, Woodside Cottage has an abundance of period features and offers scope for a family to make the property their own. With properties rarely coming to the market in Kirkby Wharfe, this is an excellent opportunity to purchase a wonderful family home in an delightful village setting.

      Extending to just over 2,500 sq ft of well proportioned living space, to the ground floor there is a large sitting/ dining room with views across the gardens, a family room and an extensive utility room which could easily be used as a further reception room. The kitchen leads to a garden room and secondary utility. Completing the ground floor is an attached tandem garage. The sense of space and flexibility continues on the first floor, the bedrooms suiting a growing family, three doubles and two singles supported by two bathrooms, each of the bedrooms having fabulous views of the surrounding garden.

      In addition to the house, to the rear across a large parking/turning area, there is an impressive range of block built outbuildings, currently used as garaging, stores and workspace but with potential to form annexed accommodation or a home office (subject to the necessary consents). The buildings benefit from a three phase power supply and one of the garages has an inspection pit. Collectively a versatile collection of buildings which provide excellent storage space and development potential.

      On the other three sides of the house are beautifully maintained gardens full of colorful planting and thoughtfully layered beds framing large central lawns. At the far end, behind the outbuildings is a small copse of woodland adjoining open countryside - a wonderful play area for children.
