Kendal House is a substantial semi-detached property situated in the popular village of West Burton.
West Burton is one of the most sought after villages in the Dale, situated between the market towns of Hawes and Leyburn. It has a beautiful protected village green, notable waterfalls and is surrounded by stunning hills and dales. It is an active community, retaining a primary school, village hall, shop and tearoom, butchers & a number of small businesses.
The house offers spacious, well appointed accommodation over three floors with the large windows and high ceilings giving a sense of light and space.
On the ground floor is an attractive kitchen looking up to the garden, a separate dining room and a sitting room both overlooking the front garden and across to the village green.
The second floor has a large double bedroom and an attractive room which the current owners use as their main living room. This would make a good front double bedroom with room to create an en suite, if required. There is also a shower room with separate WC. On the top floor are two good double bedrooms with pretty attic windows giving beautiful views over the green and to the hills beyond.
The house benefits from oil fired central heating and some double glazed windows.
To the side of the property are a good range of outbuildings, probably dating back to the early 1800's, in need of renovation, which offer scope to extend the main house or provide separate accommodation. The neighbouring property has a right of way through the courtyard and boiler room for occasional access to their garden behind.
To the front of the house is a pretty cottage garden with original iron railings and a range of borders & paths. At the back of the house is an attractive garden with established pond, lawns, trees and borders. The garden catches the sun virtually all day and offers a beautiful private vantage point from which to enjoy the views over the roof tops to the hills beyond. There is an area of garden outside the kitchen which is actually owned and kept by the neighbouring property but is not divided off. If necessary, this could be separated and access to Kendal House garden would be up the path to the side.
Viewing is essential to appreciate the size and quality of accommodation.
