It takes a lot to impress them because they have seen it all before so when Patrick McCutcheon, Head of Residential at Dacre, Son and Hartley, describes Friars Hill, on the market at £5.5m, thus you know it is extra special. He says: “Of all of the fabulous homes I have seen in Wharfedale, Friars Hill is unquestionable amongst the very best.”
