A Grade II listed historic building in Otley town centre that is currently a thriving guest house and also has planning consent to be transformed into a magnificent home, is for sale with leading estate agent, Dacre, Son & Hartley.
Dowgill House has six bedrooms and offers buyers the opportunity to trade from the moment they collect the keys. The business has an excellent reputation and is Otley’s top ranked accommodation provider on leading review website, Tripadvisor.
The property was constructed in 1753 and offers four first floor en-suite bedrooms, as well as two substantial former bedrooms in the upper storey that are currently used as the owners’ apartment. The accommodation is full of period features, including fireplaces, a Yorkshire range, cornicing, exposed stone and timberwork. There is a cobbled, double fronted courtyard providing ample car parking and an enclosed southerly facing rear garden.
Tim Usherwood, who heads up Dacre, Son & Hartley’s Otley office, said: “This is an exciting opportunity to buy a beautiful and deceptively spacious building in the heart of Otley town centre. Dowgill House has a long history, and has been sympathetically modernised to create a successful guest house that is immaculately presented, with an excellent reputation and lots of repeat trade.
“As a result, it will appeal to both experienced accommodation providers and anyone considering a career change who is looking for a successful business, that is also a fantastic lifestyle opportunity, in a popular area close to stunning countryside.
“Alternatively, it also offers the opportunity to create a splendid home, in a historic building, right in the town centre. It already has four en-suite bedrooms and the attic space could be converted into an impressive home office, so it offers lots of options.”
The market town of Otley is popular with tourists and has an excellent range of shops, restaurants, pubs and cafes. It also offers easy access to the Yorkshire Dales, as well as the likes of Leeds, Bradford, Ilkley and Harrogate. Leeds Bradford International Airport is just three miles away.
Dowgill House is on the market for £595,000 and further information is available by calling Dacre, Son & Hartley’s Otley office.
