Property SummaryClose to the centre of historic Knaresborough, this characterful ground-floor apartment is immaculately decorated and would make a lovely home for the first-time buyer or, alternatively, it could be a wise buy-to-let investment.
Close to the River Nidd and the Yorkshire Dales, the property is also within easy reach of nearby Harrogate and is convenient for a good selection of local amenities and leisure opportunities.
Knaresborough is a bustling community with a wide range of shops, a weekly market, swimming pool and leisure centre, as well as tourist attractions including a Norman castle and the famous Mother Shiptons Cave and Petrifying Well. A Tesco Express, Sainsburys Local, petrol station, ATMs and medical services can all be found within a few hundred metres, while local bus services run close by and the towns railway station offers direct services to Harrogate and the cities of Leeds and York. The A1 (M), around five miles away, offers access to the wider motorway network while Leeds Bradford Airport is a car journey of approximately 40 minutes away. For those who enjoy spending time outdoors there are many pleasant walks alongside the River Nidd, which flows through the town, while the beautiful Yorkshire Dales are almost on the doorstep.
The property is built in warm, honey-coloured stone and has muntin windows to both front rooms. The main door opens directly off Knaresborough High Street, and there is a courtyard and allocated parking to the rear.
The inside of the apartment is immaculately decorated throughout in neutral tones, ideal for anyone who wants to put an individual stamp on their new home straight away. The front door opens into the lounge, which has a wooden floor and a white, decorative fire surround with mantle over and small tiled hearth; the fireplace itself is covered over. There is a useful built-in cupboard. The lounge then opens into the hall, which gives access to the rest of the accommodation. To the right is the main bedroom, which has a half-height recess near the window perfect for shelving or storage while ahead is the second bedroom, with a full-height alcove large enough to house a double wardrobe.
To the left of the hallway is the bathroom, which has fully-tiled walls in white and wood flooring. The free-standing bath with metal feet gives an opulent feel, and this has a shower over with a glass splash-screen. There is a wall-mounted heated towel rail, hand basin, and toilet with high-mounted cistern and pull-chain. The kitchen, to the right of the hall, has a tiled floor and is fitted with a range of cupboards and drawers in contemporary white with metal handles. There is some glass-fronted display shelving and a built-in oven and hob with extractor hood, as well as plumbing for a washing machine and space for other appliances. There is a good-sized sink with a mixer tap. A second access door opens from the hall to the rear of the property.
