Yorkshire Post - Property - - PROPERTY - Sharon Dale Car­ling­ford, Belford Road, Har­ro­gate Price: £500,000 Con­tact: Bead­nall Co­p­ley, Har­ro­gate, tel: 01423 503500, www.bead­nall­cop­

THIS de­tached Vic­to­rian prop­erty in the cen­tre of Har­ro­gate is set to cause great ex­cite­ment. Although it was last used as of­fices, it has the po­ten­tial to con­vert into three, two-bed­room apart­ments or a large, lux­ury home.

It also comes with a large park­ing area, which is an added bonus in a lo­ca­tion where even some of the grand­est homes have no ded­i­cated space for cars.

Car­ling­ford was built in the late 19th cen­tury as a pri­vate res­i­dence. It was owned by a Swiss baker by the name of Betti, although there is no con­nec­tion to the fa­mous York­shire bak­ery.

It later be­came a home for nurses who worked at the nearby cot­tage hospi­tal, now St Peter’s School, be­fore be­ing sold on as a fam­ily home..

Own­ers Arthur and Su­san Burgess, bought the prop­erty in 1988.

“When we bought it, it had been lived in by gen­er­a­tions of the same fam­ily for years and it needed a lot of work.

“We spent a lot of money ren­o­vat­ing it and con­vert­ing it into of­fices for our busi­ness. We were care­ful to re­tain as many of the pe­riod features as we could,” says Su­san.

The cou­ple have now re­tired from the busi­ness, Brent­wood De­sign Group, which has now re­lo­cated and is run by their former em­ploy­ees.

“We are sell­ing the build­ing and it really does present a tremen­dous op­por­tu­nity for some­one. Struc­turally it’s in very good con­di­tion,” says Arthur.

The prop­erty, which boasts high ceil­ings, dec­o­ra­tive cor­nices, pic­ture rails and orig­i­nal slid­ing sash win­dows, has 2,500sq ft.

It has an en­trance hall, down­stairs cloak­room, din­ing room, fam­ily room, sit­ting room, po­ten­tial kitchen, util­ity room and fur­ther down­stairs cloak­room/wc and in­ner hall­way with stairs lead­ing to first floor.

On the first floor, there is a house bath­room and four dou­ble bed­rooms. To the sec­ond floor, there are three fur­ther dou­ble bed­rooms with scope to di­vide into fur­ther bed­rooms or en-suite bath­rooms. To the front of the prop­erty is a fore­court with half stone wall with wrought iron rail­ings and off-street park­ing. To the rear of the prop­erty, there is a Tar­ma­cced area with scope to con­vert or change into lawned gar­dens and off-street park­ing with po­ten­tial for a sin­gle garage.

Car­ling­ford could be con­verted into a fam­ily home with large park­ing area. It has a plaque to its days as a home for nurses.
