Grade II* Listed House near Skipton

Grade II* Listed House near Skipton

Right on the border of Lancashire and North Yorkshire this important historic house dating back to the early eighteenth century has been divided to form three separate luxury homes.

Externally the building displays many of the classical influences found on buildings of this age including a very handsome entrance flanked by fluted columns with composite capitals. Mullion windows make for a bright interior but the relatively soft local stone has resulted in some of the windows becoming badly eroded. The quality of country house adaptions varies from stunning to cheap and cheerful, many were effectively gutted before they received listed status and the interiors can sometimes be underwhelming. Happily this one has been treated with respect and is a good example of how to retain the historic significance and provide a comfortable period family home.
