A STUNNINGLY RE-DESIGNED AND BEAUTIFULLY PRESENTED FOUR BEDROOMED STONE DETACHED HOUSE WITH FABULOUS OPEN VIEWS ACROSS NEIGHBOURING COUNTRYSIDE, ENJOYING AN IDYLLIC POSITION JUST A MILE FROM SKIPTON'S HIGH STREET YET WITHIN THE BOUNDARY OF THE YORKSHIRE DALES NATIONAL PARK. The well-worn phrase of "no expense spared" has never been more apt than when describing this fabulous home. The present owners fell in love with Brackenmoor's position and location and made their purchase with a view to transforming it into a completely different home, regardless of cost. Its restoration programme has included remodelling the whole property both inside and out, extending the accommodation, renewing all the fittings, equipment, windows and heating system and building a large detached double garage.

Situated just over a mile from Skipton, Stirton is an idyllic hamlet enjoying a rural tranquillity, yet is easily accessible for town by car or foot. Known as the 'Gateway to the Dales', Skipton sits on the edge of the stunning Yorkshire Dales National Park, with a colourful street 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".  

When the current owners bought Brackenmoor 5 years ago, they were sold by the property's fabulous location, handy for Skipton's High Street (a mile away) and yet entirely rural in its feel with fabulous southerly views across rolling fields - and so they set about creating an entirely different and exceptional two storey home which offers superb ground floor bedrooms as well as an imaginative and beautifully presented open plan living/kitchen/dining space with bi-fold doors and large windows. Throughout the property, the rooms are light and spacious with immaculate décor and top quality fittings.  

Outside, the entrance and gardens have been professionally re-designed to give rolling lawns with low maintenance beds and lots of parking, along with a newly planted beech hedge and large patios. Inside, the windows have been replaced with timber double glazing (protected externally by powder-coated aluminium), and there are bi-fold doors to maximise on the property's sunny south-facing position. Central heating is provided by an LPG-fired system, giving underfloor heat to the ground floor and radiators to the first floor.
