WHY SHOULD YOU LIVE HERE? What our vendor says about their property:
"Station House with grand presence and noticeable architecture, likely resulted from a Lancs & Yorks Railway's belief it was in keeping with an 'Estate' village location, on this branch line aiming at bringing tourists to the Spa Town of Askern. For us it has been a wonderful family home benefitting parents, children and grandchildren for 40 years and this is the first entirely private sale opportunity (outside of any railway connection), since 1846. A unique opportunity to own a slice of history, mould to one's own design and satisfaction, taking advantage of previous and sympathetic modernisation. Having no listed building or conservation status the extensive accommodation offers flexibility in use including home working, fitness, hobbies, leisure and business subject to any necessary consents."
