A deceptively spacious period house with separate self-contained cottage, garaging and lovely walled garden.
Orchard House is one of the most distinctive and deceptively spacious properties which line the main street in this traditional North Yorkshire village. A former farm house with associated buildings, the principle property has received a number of extensions during its recent history creating a well balanced family home of considerable character, accompanied by a number of former outbuildings, a former barn and stables, which now provide garaging, a store/gym and a self contained three bedroomed cottage.
The house itself offers a series of bright, nicely proportioned rooms which provide a space for any occasion and just the right balance of original features. A striking double height rear entrance hall leads into the cosy farmhouse style kitchen supported by a pantry. Three versatile reception rooms then lead off a central hallway, two with feature fireplaces and the sitting room with a cast iron wood burning stove. Completing the picture on the ground floor is a study / play room formed from a later addition, complete with a separate access door. Rising past a large picture window to the first floor there are four bedrooms and two bathrooms, one en suite all recently decorated and well maintained.
In addition to the main house, just across the rear paved courtyard, is a former stable block converted to form a self contained three bedroom cottage which currently houses a family member but would be equally well suited as a holiday/guest cottage. Finished to a high standard it boasts a large, bright living/dining room, modern kitchen and two bathrooms, one en suite. Outside is a small west facing patio garden with a screen
Adjoing this building are a pair of garages, open to the rafters, one currently used as a gym. Behind these, accessed via the garages or via a gap to one side is an enchanting walled garden, a true oasis in the heart of the village, with views of the church and surrounding roof tops but particularly private and peaceful.
