This derelict Grade II Listed detached property is located close to the centre of the popular Yorkshire Dales village of Ingleton - a gateway location to the spectacular National Park and thriving tourist destination. This is a rare and challenging project with real potential to rescue an historic building and create a desirable residence in a sought after location.
Pear Tree is in need of total restoration and has the potential to become a 3/4 bed detached residence, holiday home/let or, subject to the necessary planning consents, divided to create two separate properties. It is believed to have been 2 cottages in the past, with the Smithy at one end. The Smithy was in operation up until around half a century ago.
On the ground floor, the front door provides access to a kitchen, with separate pantry to the rear. Two reception rooms can be accessed from the kitchen; a dining room with fireplace and a living room with range and doorway through to the stairwell. The ground floor Smithy is accessed via its own front door.
The stairwell is indicative of the 17th Century origins of the building and leads up to a landing area. The main part of the first floor is currently divided to provide 3 bedrooms. From the landing, there is also access through to the first floor of the Smithy, currently sub-divided to two rooms.
Outside, there is space to create off-road parking for at least two cars, along with a small garden or patio seating area. There is an attached former external privy.
Ingleton has bars, pubs and shops, and is well known for its stunning waterfalls walk. It has a primary school and is in the catchment area for highly regarded secondary school education at QES, Kirkby Lonsdale and Settle College. As well as the Dales, the Forest of Bowland AONB is close at hand and the Lake District can be reached within under an hour. Trains can be caught at Bentham. Lancaster and the M6 are half an hour by car. The popular market towns of Settle and Kirkby Lonsdale are a short drive away and both have Booths supermarkets.
