    About this property

    • Grosmont House was built in the 1860's and is the principal house in the village. It was later extended and improved and has recently been the subject of a comprehensive programme of works, resulting in fresh contemporary interiors, which are enhanced by its inherent character and period features.

      The extensive accommodation is arranged over three floors and extends to approximately 5000sqft. In addition to the main house, there is a contemporary self-contained apartment and two beautifully presented holiday cottages that have been created from the conversion of the former stable block. These adjoin the historic Grosmont heritage railway station which is the steam train headquarters of the North York Moors Railway. The property is accessed just off the main street in the centre of the village in a private cul de sac, yet everything within the village is close by.

      The property is currently used as both a family home with extensive owners living space and also operated as a very
      successful, high-end country house bed and breakfast, together with two holiday cottages and an apartment. It would ideally suit someone looking for a successful lifestyle business whilst providing an elegant and well-presented family home. It is approached through an entrance lobby with a conservatory off and a reception hall that leads to the drawing room with a deep bay window and French doors opening to the gardens, a sitting room with deep bay and feature fireplace. The central hall has access to the courtyard and provides an area for a study. The dining room has a period fireplace and bread oven, in the kitchen there are fitted units and a walk in pantry. The principal reception room is a real highlight of the property with its contemporary styling and includes oak floors with underfloor heating and a galleried landing above with exposed beams, trusses and glass balustrade. There is an impressive fireplace and French doors to the outside. There is also a downstairs a wet room and separate laundry/boiler room. To the first floor, there are six bedrooms, each with en suite waterfall shower rooms and a self-contained holiday apartment with a sitting area, kitchen, bedroom and bathroom.

      The property is set within mature gardens of about two thirds of an acre that include a private drive leading to a large gravelled parking and turning area which continues down to further hard standing for the cottages and garages.
