One of the most sought-after villages in Craven, Gargrave is located 4 miles West of Skipton and is within the catchment area for the well-regarded Skipton Grammar Schools. Surrounded by beautiful countryside and a justifiably popular place to live, Gargrave is entirely on the level and has its own railway station with train services connecting through to Skipton and then onto Bradford and Leeds. Within the village there is a good range of local shops as well as a supermarket, church, three public houses, doctor's and dentist's surgeries, primary school and well-patronised village hall with many community events. There are also sporting facilities including cricket club, football club, tennis and croquet. Alongside three charming village greens, the River Aire meanders through the village, as does the Leeds-Liverpool Canal with its colourful barges and pretty towpath walks.  

Gargrave House is located on the outskirts of the village, a 10 minute level walk to the shops, and Apartment 27 is situated in the more modern section to the north, in a select block of four properties which are accessed by their own private entrance. From entering 27, the luxury and quality is immediately apparent, with the main Living Area being particularly light and spacious and featuring two sets of double doors to Juliet balconies giving fabulous westerly views over the adjoining open fields. The property benefits from UPVC double glazed windows and doors, and underfloor electric heating with individual room thermostats.
