An attractive double fronted period home occupying a plot extending to around an acre in all, with stunning views of the Wensleydale countryside from the rear gardens. This is a charming family home with a good flow to the accommodation including two principal reception rooms, fitted breakfast kitchen, five bedrooms, plenty of utilitarian spaces such as walk in larder and a boot room. It also has both a house bathroom and house shower room. There is plenty of outdoor space along with various outbuildings, one of which is a good sized barn at the bottom of the garden with power and lighting.

Ground Floor

A walled courtyard and wrought iron gate lead to the front door with a portico surround. The reception hall is welcoming with a spindle staircase. From here there is access to the principal reception rooms and a couple of small steps descend to the rear hall which provides access to the kitchen, a walk-in pantry, ground floor WC, and utility/boot room.

The living room is a pleasant and cosy room with a bay window with seat overlooking the forecourt garden and village green beyond. A focal point to this room is a decorative wooden fire surround with pink marble inset, slate hearth and a contemporary log burning stove. The dining room also has a bay window overlooking the forecourt, and a stone fire surround and hearth with quarry tiled back and open grate. From here a stable door adjoins the kitchen. The kitchen has excellent views over the rear gardens to the countryside beyond, it has fitted wall and floor cupboards in solid wood with a mix of painted and natural wood frontage incorporating display cabinets, plate racks, wine rack, granite worksurfaces with an inset sink and mixer tap, integrated dishwasher, electric oven with warming drawer, induction hob with extractor hood over. From here a door returns to the rear hall with the walk in pantry with stone stab shelving and the utility/boot room which has space and plumbing for an automatic washing machine, the central heating boiler is here and a stable door leads out to the rear gardens.

First Floor

A galleried landing has a window above the front door and makes a pleasant space for reading with a window overlooking the village green. From here there is access to all five bedrooms, the house shower room and house bathroom. Two of the bedrooms have alternative uses at present, one as an office, and the other as a sewing room, which works really well.

Having both a house bathroom and house shower room works well for a family or when having guests to stay. The bath is set in a position to enjoy the views of the dale perfectly.


The property is double fronted with a courtyard pedestrian entrance. Alongside the courtyard is a driveway with on-site parking leading to an integral garage with wooden double doors.

The rear gardens are substantial and have an infinity feel to them, in that, the main garden drops away to the lower gardens and paddock but the eye is drawn to the Dales countryside way beyond the garden perimeter. The main garden area is walled with large lawns and well stocked shrub and flower borders, a gravel and stone patio runs the full width of the building. From here there is access to the utility/boot room, garden room, a stone shed and wooden gates which open to the side path. To the far end of the garden is a stone store and a large stone barn with power and lighting.

There is a small paddock beyond the gardens which extends to around 0.14 acres. A gate leads through to the adjoining field which extends to 0.66 acres and the site extends to around 1 acre as a whole.
