Curlew Cottage is a detached stone-built property, situated on a generous plot, in the Dales village of West Scrafton.

West Scrafton is a rural village located just over the valley from the village of Carlton, home to a community owned pub, it is also a short drive to the nearby popular market town of Leyburn and the historic town of Middleham, famous for its racehorse and Castle connections.

The property offers a wealth of character with traditional wood beamed ceilings and a feature stone fireplace, and not to mention the most spectacular views across the Dale. The cottage would require modernisation throughout though does benefit from oil central heating and double glazed windows.

On the ground floor there is a good sized kitchen, and large open plan living/dining space which is neatly divided by the open staircase. Additionally, there is a shower room and useful utility.
The first floor offers a bathroom and 3 double bedrooms, 2 of which have high pitched ceilings with exposed beams and stunning views, the third bedroom is a L shape room and boasts lovely views across the valley.

Externally, the property sits on 0.32 acres with a large laid to lawn garden to the front with flower beds and established shrubs and trees. The property also has a twin chamber septic tank, which is located under the large gravelled area. Furthermore, there are two patio areas and a summer house.

To the rear of the property there is a garage, stone outbuildings and ample parking for 4/5 cars.

Over the years, the property has had repairs and work to the roof, from a historic issue, though the internal décor does not currently reflect this.

Curlew Cottage would make a fantastic fulltime or holiday home in the Dales.
