GRADE II LISTED ELIZABETHAN DOVECOTE, SUITABLE FOR RESIDENTIAL/BUSINESS USE £150,000 NORTH YORKSHIRE

GRADE II LISTED ELIZABETHAN DOVECOTE
SUITABLE FOR A VARIETY OF USES, INCLUDING RESIDENTIAL, OFFICE, STUDIO (SUBJECT TO PLANNING)
BRICK-BUILT UNDER A SLATE ROOF
HUNDREDS OF INTERNAL BRICK PIGEON HOLES
THIS WONDERFUL OLD BUILDING IS RIPE FOR RE-DEVELOPMENT, AND WAS GRANTED DETAILED PLANNING PERMISSION FOR CONVERSION TO OFFICE USE IN 2001 (now lapsed). PICTURED IN SAMUEL BECK’S SKETCHBOOK, IT HAS CHANGED REMARKABLY LITTLE SINCE HE DREW IT IN 1719. ALSO MENTIONED IN PEVSNER.
THERE ARE THREE LARGE WINDOWS, ONE LARGE DOORWAY AND ONE SMALL ARCHED DOORWAY (THE ORIGINAL ENTRANCE FOR THE PIGEON-KEEPER).
BUILT IN THE REAR COURTYARD OF AN ELIZABETHAN MANOR HOUSE, THE DOVECOTE WOULD HAVE HOUSED HUNDREDS OF PIGEONS. IN THOSE DAYS, ONLY THE LORD OF THE MANOR WAS ALLOWED TO KEEP PIGEONS. THEY WERE A VERY IMPORTANT SOURCE OF FRESH MEAT, AND FLEW OFF DAILY FROM THE COTE TO FORAGE IN THE LOCAL FIELDS, RETURNING AT DUSK.
THE DOVECOTE HAS GARDEN TO THE SOUTH AND EAST, COURTYARD TO THE WEST, AND IS LINKED TO ANOTHER TRADITIONAL BUILDING TO THE NORTH.
