Salisbury House is an impressive period property set in the sought-after Dales village of Askrigg.

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 a typical Georgian property and boasts a wealth of original character features including stone flag flooring, deep skirtings, decorative coving and sash windows.

On the ground floor is an impressive entrance hall leading to two good, front reception rooms. To the rear is a kitchen and good size traditional pantry with steps down to a storage cellar with old stone shelves still in place. Upstairs, on the first floor are three, good double bedrooms and a large house bathroom. There are a further four bedrooms on the second floor.

Attached to the house is a separate building/cart house, believed to have been the servant’s quarters, along with the original stables. There is a date stone on the outside wall dated 1818. There is a family dining kitchen with a separate staircase leading to two bedrooms. The traditional cart house has a cobbled floor and two stables, with a ladder staircase to a hayloft. There is a good size coal and potting shed with access to the rear garden.

Salisbury House has been in the family for at least 100 years, the property benefits from having some double glazing and oil-fired central heating, though is in need of modernisation. The house offers flexible accommodation, with the additional cottage, giving great development potential.

To the rear, is a large walled garden with mature trees and shrubbery. An avenue of fruit trees leads to the old pig-sty, which makes an ideal garden store. To the rear of the walled garden is a path leading to a large South facing allotment and another lawn garden with mature sycamore tree. There is vehicle access at the rear leading out to ‘Pudding Lane’.

Salisbury House is a truly magnificent property with a flexible layout. Viewing is essential to fully appreciate the extent of the property.
