Harrogate renovation project

It is quite rare for a double-fronted detached house on such a large plot in a prime Harrogate location to go under the hammer.

The location on Wetherby Road, close to the Showground and on the main route out towards the bypass and Leeds, York and the A1, makes this a very appealing proposition.

The size of the garden would allow for an extension, or the whole site could be redeveloped, subject to planning. Guide price £320,000.


Town centre apartment

Staying in Harrogate, we have a two bedroom ground floor apartment in the popular Chatsworth area, within easy walking distance of Kings Road and the town centre.

The property has direct access to a communal garden and car parking. The location and spaciousness of this apartment make it a good option for both first time buyers or landlords wanting to expand their buy to let portfolio. Guide price £100,000.

Country Bungalow

This attractive two bedroom bungalow on Main Street in the picturesque village of Little Ouseburn is currently rented out and generates an income of £660 a month. The tenancy ends in November, leaving it open for an owner occupier or a proven buy to let. The bungalow benefits from off street parking and stunning views across open fields at the back.

Guide price £150,000.
