Over the last twelve months the present owners have embarked on a programme of restoration of this fine Victorian house, but events have taken a turn meaning that they are now wishing to sell.

Known as the 'Gateway to the Dales', Skipton is a thriving and historic market town on the edge of the stunning Yorkshire Dales National Park, with strong agricultural connections and a magnificent castle dating back to the 11th Century. Its colourful High Street hosts a market four days a week on the cobbled setts, along with a wide choice of shops, restaurants and public houses. The Leeds-Liverpool Canal runs through the town with its pretty towpath walks and for families there is an excellent choice of schooling at both Primary and Secondary level. Small wonder that in 2014 Skipton was voted by The Sunday Times as the best place to live in Britain, receiving commendations for its "ideal combination of low crime rates, top-class schools and great transport links", and in 2017 the Office of National Statistics revealed that Skipton is officially the happiest place to live in the UK!  

It is rare to find a large stone terraced house in Skipton which has a garage, and 14 Salisbury Street offers just that, along with an attractively laid out rear patio garden. Inside, in addition to the well-presented ground floor accommodation, there is a newly finished and smartly decorated basement music/tv room, and on the first and second floors there will be a choice of how the bedrooms and bathrooms are completed. All in all this is a great home in an excellent location, handy for the town centre and for the secondary schools and park.
