    About this property

    • Biggin House is a wonderful detached property with an extensive courtyard of buildings along with a small grass paddock. The property is constructed of sandstone with a blue slate and pantile roof. Internally the accommodation is up to date and modern, but does incorporate many traditional features. The property would benefit from some redecoration and cosmetic improvements. In all Biggin House extends to about 2,000 sq ft of internal floor area.

      The ground floor accommodation includes a porch/entrance hall, large kitchen dining room with a range of fitted units, boot room/utility/boiler room, WC with sink, study, living room and sitting room with patio doors to a small flagged area to the rear of the property. The first floor is arranged around a large landing area with four double bedrooms (one with en-suite shower room complete with WC and sink), there is a further large family bathroom with sink and WC.

      The property has oil fired central heating with a mix of single and double glazed windows. The accommodation is arranged in such a way to maximise space, together with large windows provides for a very light property.

      Outside: Biggin House is approached by a single track public highway which leads to a number of properties with Biggin House and the adjacent farm being at the end of the lane. A small garden encompasses the southern elevation of the property and to the north is a lawned garden with small patio bound by a stone wall and hedge.

      Traditional buildings: To the east of the property is an extensive range of stone built traditional farm buildings, stables and stores which total over 3,000 sq ft. Part of this is double height with some mezzanines. The buildings incorporate some wonderful original features and details. To the north of this courtyard is a stone built Dutch barn and lean-to.

      Planning Consent: The courtyard range of traditional buildings and Dutch barn benefit from planning consent for a change of use from outbuildings to provide for holiday and ramblers', accommodation comprising one single bedroom self-contained holiday apartment, two 3-bedroom and one 2-bedroom units together with two ramblers cottages, with a laundry and drying room, plus a games room, ancillary store and covered parking area (planning reference NYM/2020/0275/FL). There is obvious potential at the property for leisure and holiday development, in what is such a beautiful setting in the heart of North York Moors National Park yet close to the coast. This could provide diversified additional income to the property.

      Land: A small area of grassland is included surrounding the property, which falls away to a small pond area. The land is ideal for hobby, equine or amenity purposes and could be run in connection with the property or any leisure use developed thereof. This land adds an extra dimension to the enjoyment of the property and could be utilised in relation to any other activities (subject to the necessary consents).
