A beamed country cottage that sits by the site of a Roman settlement in a sought-after West Yorkshire village is poised for its launch to market - with particular appeal for equestrian lovers.
Penny Cote, on Leech Lane, Harden, near Bingley, is being sold through Linley & Simpsons Saltaire office by modern method of auction, with a guide price of £395,000.
The period property occupies a semi-rural position with a substantial outside space covering both the rear and the front with an orchard and private track that makes it ideal for equestrian use.
The three-bedroom, semi-detached home is ideally located for travelling to Leeds, Bradford and Skipton, with Beckfoot School, Bingley Grammar, Cross Flatts Primary School, and Lady Lane Park School all within easy reach.
Downstairs, the property features an entrance hall; sitting room; dining room; kitchen; utility room and toilet. To the first floor are three bedrooms, a house bathroom and a shower room.
According to historians, nearby excavations on Leech Lane have suggested Roman settlement in the area from c.150 AD.
Archaeologists have unearthed pottery, coins and even elephant ivory on the site, leading to speculation that an Anglo-Roman villa may have stood here.
The market launch day for Penny Cote is Saturday May 12, between 11am and midday, when it will be open for viewings.
