I am pretty sure that the GA doesn't own Beckfoot though she probably was brought up there. If she did own the house, she would probably think it necessary to live there full time and be "lady of the manor" rather than living in Harrogate.
It also seems clear that Bob Blackett married Molly but did not own Beckfoot which is a Turner family property. However, when they married the young and growing family may have lived there, or else Molly and the girls moved there after he died (or went off to war?). I suspect that Jim Turner is the owner having inherited the property from his parents but as a bachelor is happy to have his widowed sister and her family live there to keep the home alive and maybe pay him some rent or maintenance and decorating costs, especially when he is away prospecting.
