About this property

Cherry Tree Cottage is a truly individual, stone built, four double bedroom detached property with level garden and cobbled driveway for two cars in the heart of the vibrant village of Burley in Wharfedale. Dating from 1875 this house is full of charm and character throughout with exposed beams, high ceilings, open plan living dining kitchen with log burner, recently modernised bathroom and en suite shower room to bedroom four. This is a rare opportunity to purchase such a delightful, stone built family home.

A solid timber entrance door opens into a charming hall with attractive tiled flooring with space for coats and shoes. Pine doors lead into a comfortable lounge with shutters to the large window overlooking the fore garden and the open plan living dining kitchen with impressive log burning stove and patio doors leading out to the rear garden. The kitchen is fitted with high quality cabinetry with solid oak work surfaces and a range of integral appliances. The dining area is open to a small hall to the rear of the house where a half glazed timber door opens into a useful rear porch featuring a timber, stable door to the garden. A further door from the hall leads down to the converted basement where one finds a double bedroom with its own entrance, having a glazed uPVC door leading up to the garden via stone steps, served by an en suite shower room. There is also a good sized utility room with space and plumbing for a washing machine and tumble dryer and with ample storage. There is the potential to develop this floor further to create a self contained flat. To the first floor there are two spacious double bedrooms leading off the long landing, one having been knocked through by the current owners from what was a store/laundry room, both affording lovely long distance views and a generously sized, five-piece house bathroom with claw foot bath, separate shower cubicle and contemporary metro tiling. This house just keeps on giving - to the second floor one finds a further double bedroom with floorboards and exposed beams with fitted cupboards. Planning permission was previously granted to develop this floor further and plans are available. Outside to the front the property is well set back from the road with a level lawn and seating area behind stone walling with wrought iron railings and gate, whilst to the rear one finds a good sized patio area, ideal for al-fresco entertaining, a level lawn, a border with raspberry bushes and mature trees and fencing maintaining privacy. A cobbled driveway providing invaluable parking for two vehicles completes the accommodation.
