The Apothecary’s House is a substantial link detached home, opposite the church, in the popular upper Dales village of Askrigg in Wensleydale.

Askrigg is a picturesque village with its ancient market cross, notable church and cobbled central “green”. It has a primary school, good general store, cafe, delicatessen, gift shop as well as 3 good pubs, a number of B&B’s and an excellent community life. It is famous for its Herriot connections, being the village where the series All Creatures Great & Small was filmed.

The house is believed to date from 1756 and is of classic Georgian architecture, with its large, well proportioned rooms, generous windows and a perfect stone staircase. Accommodation is on three floors and is beautifully presented with excellent decoration and quality fittings throughout. Many of the original doors, beams and wood work remain.

On the ground floor, there is a large living room with multi fuel stove with lovely views over to the church, a boot room, an attractive kitchen with range cooker, a sitting room or dining room with door to the garden and a downstairs cloakroom.

On the first floor are three beautiful double bedrooms, two with en-suite shower rooms and one with an en-suite bathroom, as well as a mezzanine study overlooking the sitting room.

On the upper floor, there are two large double bedrooms and a shower room.

The property benefits from oil fired central heating and has double glazing throughout.

Outside, there is a good sized, south-facing, landscaped garden with lawn, trees and shrubs as well as a good shed and patio area. There are glorious views over the dale towards Addlebrough.

The house has ample parking either within gates in a gravelled area to the rear of the house or on the land owned by the property to the side.

Viewing is essential to appreciate the size, location and quality offered by this prestigious home.
