Outstanding residential and amenity estate in a prime location.


Nesfield Court lies in an outstanding private position above the sought after small village of Nesfield, benefiting from far reaching southerly views over Wharfedale. Nesfield itself, whilst only 2 miles from the town of Ilkley with shops, schools, sporting and leisure facilities, lies in a quiet position off theminor country road between Ilkley Golf Club and Bolton Abbey (4 miles). Nesfield Court is therefore ideally situated for access to Ilkley, the Wharfe Valley, Leeds and Bradford as well as being close to the edge of the Yorkshire Dales National Park. The property lies within the Nidderdale Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and the sale offers an extremely rare opportunity to acquire a small private estate with well proportioned principal house in need of modernisation and a pair of cottages offering potential for additional family accommodation, staff accommodation or to generate income.

Stone pillars and a private tree-lined driveway lead up to the house and a gravelled parking area to the rear of the property.
The house occupies an elevated position with far reaching views to the south and is believed to have been built in the 1920s of brick construction with rendered and painted exterior walls
under a Westmorland slate roof. The accommodation is arranged on two floors extending to approximately 6,779 sq ft. The rooms are generally large and well proportioned with excellent
natural light to the main rooms. The house has been in the same occupation since 1943 and includes many attractive features including the oak staircase, oak flooring, beamed ceilings
and oak doors together with the impressive tiled fireplace in the drawing room. There are some lovely bedrooms off a large open landing. The sale provides a wonderful opportunity for a purchaser to modernise the house and create an exceptional family home.

To the north west of the main house there is a yard area with a triple garage, an adjoining two storey store and a pair of cottages to the west. The cottages, whilst both lived in until very recently, require modernisation. There may be potential subject to obtaining planning consent for extension or further development into the garage range. The cottages each have a living room and kitchen on the ground floor plus two bedrooms and a bathroom on the first floor. Attached to the west
end of cottage No.2 is a further single storey outbuilding offering potential for extension. In all the cottages ,garages and store have a footprint of around 2,896 sq ft with cottage No.1 occupied on an Assured Shorthold Tenancy (Vacant on
Completion) and cottage No.2 recently vacated.

Acreage: 7 Acres


The postcode for the property is LS29 0BW. On entering Nesfield when approaching from Ilkley take the first turn on the right. The road will bear round to the left and at the small village green
area turn right again up the hill and keep going until you reach the gateway marked Nesfield Court and proceed up the drive to the house.
