*** RENOVATION PROJECT *** Manby House is an impressive and substantial, stone built detached residence, believed to date back to 1860 and is undoubtedly one of Otley's most impressive period residences. The property is beautifully situated in over 3.5 acres, nestled in an elevated position on the side of Otley Chevin and enjoys far reaching panoramic views over the beautiful Wharfedale countryside. This splendid property has numerous fine period features and a floor area of 5,800 sq ft. Manby House is approached by a sweeping driveway and the gardens are a particular feature of the property, including terraced lawns, mature trees, woodland area and a tennis court with pavilion.
