A charming double fronted period cottage with later additions and a fabulous garden overlooking open countryside.
Hazel Cottage is an attractive extended stone built character house in the heart of this picturesque North Yorkshire village, close to the boarders of the Castle Howard Estate. The property is an amalgamation of a pair of estate workers cottages and has recently received a single story extension to the rear which combine to form a deceptively spacious and versatile family home. The property has been sympathetically refurbished and beautifully maintained creating a stylish, modern interior but with a number of eye catching period features helping to create a charming, traditional feel.
The property provides three good sized bedrooms, a modern bathroom and a number of well-proportioned reception rooms which offer versatile and well-proportioned accommodation ideal for family living. There is a further ground floor bedroom, currently serving as a study, with an en suite shower room, providing an ideal space for visiting guests.
The property has been carefully renovated in a style in keeping with the original cottage which dates from the early 19th century; key features from the renovations include eye catching ceiling beams and reconditioned cast iron range in the dining room, as well as a quality hand built kitchen opening into an inviting conservatory/garden room.
A particular highlight is the south facing garden, a sunken terrace flanking the rear of the house with steps leading to a several paved seating areas and on to the garden which is laid predominantly to lawn, with a colorful layered borders on either side. There is a gardeners w.c. which has lighting, a shed and at the far end a low hedge beyond which open countryside extends as far as the eye can see.
To the front of the house is a gravel in and out driveway leading to several parking areas on either side, guarded by electric timber gates. On one side is a single garage with door leading into the utility/boot room.
