A FOUR BEDROOMED STONE DETACHED HOUSE IN A PICTURESQUE YORKSHIRE DALES VILLAGE, WITH FABULOUS VIEWS, GARAGE, GARDENS AND AN ADDITIONAL 1.69 ACRES OF LAND. REQUIRING SOME UPDATING BUT OFFERING SIGNIFICANT POTENTIAL AS EITHER A PERMANENT OR SECOND HOME. Gillcroft was constructed in the late 1970's in a fabulous position, slightly elevated from the village and enjoying a superb outlook across this picturesque stretch of Upper Wharfedale. In recent years the property has been tenanted and is now vacant - most purchasers will probably wish to update the fixtures and fittings, but the house has an oil-fired central heating system and is double glazed throughout.
