WITH BREATHTAKING FAR-REACHING VIEWS IN THIS PICTURESQUE DALES VILLAGE, BIRKS VIEW COTTAGE IS AN EXTENDED AND CHARACTERFUL THREE BEDROOMED SEMI-DETACHED STONE COTTAGE, WITH GARDENS, PARKING & GARAGE. IDEAL AS EITHER A PERMANENT OR SECOND HOME WITH EARLY VACANT POSSESSION AVAILABLE IF REQUIRED. Although Birks View Cottage has the appearance of a traditional 'olde worlde' cottage, it was in fact constructed in 1976 and was the recipient of a special joint award from the RIBA and Yorkshire Dales National Park as a "new building of exceptional merit". Overlooking the Village Green and offering spacious accommodation, extended on the ground floor, the property benefits from oil-fired central heating and predominant UPVC double glazing.
