Former village shop to re-open as beauty salon
10:00am Wednesday 23rd April 2014 in News
A former village Co-op store which had stood empty for years has been given a new lease of life.
The historic building in Station Road, Steeton, has been transformed into a beauty and massage salon.
And many of the original features from the premises have been preserved.
The building served as the Co-op from the early 20th century until the 1960s, after which it had numerous uses ranging from offices to a hairdressers.
It had stood derelict for about seven years until opening in its new guise, as The Beauty Nest.
Owner Christine Wilson, who lives in Steeton, said: “Before I bought the building it had got into a very bad state of disrepair and looked unsightly.
“I believe I’ve restored it to a very high standard and I have taken a great deal of effort to preserve its character in accordance with the conservation area.
“The front windows have been changed but I have the original old Co-op window, which I will restore and display, and have kept original features including stonework.”
Miss Wilson, 29, worked from a rented room at Burley-in-Wharfedale before taking on the new premises.
