An early Edwardian detached village house with pretty gardens, off street parking and fabulous elevated views.
The Anchorage was built at the turn of the century to serve management involved in the nearby iron mines - a major industrial complex which produced nearly 1000 tonnes of pig iron a week. The house is the largest of three which stand in a row, in an elevated position, at the northern edge of the village, offering wonderful views over the rooftops towards the famous North York Moors railway and Esk Valley.
The property has been a well-loved family home, the entrance hall has a beautiful parquet flooring and leads through to the kitchen breakfast room boasting exposed beams, with the addition of a valuable utility room and separate pantry. The dining room with log burner and stunning original period windows. The sitting room is a superb size with an open fireplace and French doors which lead out to the garden. The conservatory is accessed via the sitting room and boasts delightful west facing views. Opposite the stairs to the right of the entrance is a downstairs cloakroom. To the first floor there are three bedrooms with inbuilt wardrobes and a house bathroom. There is an insulated loft and in addition further storage spaces underneath the house.
The property has a delightful south and west facing formal garden with mature trees and shrubs, as well as an established fruit and vegetable garden with greenhouse. There is a parking area to the side of the house.
To the rear of the property, across the private lane, is a parking space and two outbuildings with the potential to create garaging, studio or further accommodation, subject to the necessary consents.
