A Grade II listed building in Otley town centre, that was home to former local institution, Korks Wine Bar, now has planning permission to be extended and transformed into seven impressive town houses and apartments, and is for sale with leading estate agent, Dacre, Son & Hartley.
Planning permission for the scheme was granted this February and the properties will be made up of three sections. The principal building on Bondgate will be transformed into three units of varying sizes, with three further homes in a newly constructed element. An existing small barn will be converted to create a one bedroom property. There will also be six parking spaces, a communal bike store and garden areas.
Korks hosted live music events and served food and drink for more than 35 years before closing at the end of 2017.
Tim Usherwood, who heads up Dacre, Son & Hartley’s Otley office, said: “This is an exciting opportunity to convert a beautiful and well known building in the heart of Otley town centre into a selection of residences, with the largest offering 1,474 sq ft across three floors with a roof terrace.
“Once complete, the development will be full of character, and in a great location, with all of Otley’s shops, bars and restaurants on the doorstep, so it’s bound to be popular with homebuyers.”
The building is for sale for offers over £550,000 and best and final offers should be submitted to Dacre, Son & Hartley by 3 May 2022. Further information is available by calling the firm’s Otley office on 01943 463321 or visit www.dacres.co.uk.
