The design was conceived by AV Architects of Steeton and the construction materials include polished concrete block, timber and zinc cladding and aluminium framed windows on the main house with profiled metal cladding on the garage. Inside, the property has a lower ground floor with spacious a reception hall; triple aspect, open-plan living kitchen; a double bedroom with dressing room and en-suite; a cloakroom; adjacent utility and a door to the integral double garage. The upper ground floor has a reception hall; living kitchen with dining area and balconies off; two double bedrooms, including one with en-suite; a cloakroom and a gym/playroom/bedroom.

The first floor has a triple aspect living room; a bedroom suite with dressing room and bathroom and an extensive balcony with stunning views. Outside is a driveway and gardens.

Patrick McCutcheon of Dacre, Son and Hartley says: “With the benefit of planning approval, this development opportunity offers an extremely rare chance to develop a stunning ‘Grand Designs’ home within a popular and well regarded area of town.

“It will sit on a site of just over a quarter of an acre and is close to beautiful moorland and woodland walks with the town centre just a mile or so away. The proposed layout provides wonderful, light and airy, free-flowing living accommodation with extensive glazing to maximise the impact of the stunning views – an asset shared by the expansive balcony areas.”
