SITUATION Gate Bridge House is positioned in a peaceful location on the edge of the sought after village of Galphay which sits in the catchment area for the Outstanding secondary schools of Ripon Grammar and Outwood Academy. Fountains Primary School is in the nearby village of Grantley.
There are public houses in both Grantley and Galphay both offering popular restaurants. Additional amenities can be found a short drive away in the village of Kirkby Malzeard and picturesque market town of Masham. Ripon has excellent public transport links to Harrogate and Leeds and the Motorway network is a drive of around 20 minutes.

DESCRIPTION Gate Bridge House is a delightful home that has been in the same ownership for over 18 years. The lovely property has many original and quirky features, but would now benefit from sympathetic updating works to realise its full potential. It therefore would appeal to those wishing to put their own stamp on a property.
The property also has the rare addition of a paddock perfect for those children wishing to keep their own pony close at hand. For those who like outside adventures, there are plenty of 'den' building opportunities in the small wooded area perfect for aspiring 'Bear Grhylls'!

Constructed in Stone under a traditional pantile roof, the property has had many interesting additions over the years and offers accommodation which is flexible in its use and currently offers five bedrooms and three reception rooms. However, the vendors are very aware that the property would benefit from updating and have reflected this in the asking price.
