About this property

  • Skipwith Station is a wonderful, character property, converted from a former railway station. The house has been beautifully restored and has a pretty garden with rural views.

    There is well balanced accommodation comprising four bedrooms, a kitchen breakfast room, and three reception rooms.

    Adjacent to the reception hall is the impressive dining area with two sets of French doors opening onto the terrace, the sitting area has a wood burner. The open kitchen has a dining area with doors on to the terrace.

    The property is accessed through a gateway on to a private drive. There is a south facing lawned garden, and a terrace with views to the east overlooking farmland.

    Skipwith Station is situated on the former Derwent Valley Light Railway which was constructed from 1912 and stretched 16 miles linking Cliffe to York as a method of transport for the agricultural community. Despite being heavily used during WWII to service Government depots and airfields, demand from agricultural traffic reduced resulting in the line eventually closing in 1985.

I love the unique charm this property has to offer as well as the open views from the terrace.
